PITTSBURGH, Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Boomerang Systems, Inc.
(http://www.boomerangsystems.com) has created and installed the First Fully
Automated Storage System in the World and for STORExpress
(http://www.storexpress.com) in New Kensington, PA.
STORExpress will hold a grand opening and free to the public open house
for the facility Tuesday, December 16, 2008 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at
its New Kensington facility at 196 Coxcomb Hill Road -- about two miles from
the famed Oakmont Country Club Golf Course. The six-level system is an
extension of the Pittsburgh based STORExpress' conventional facility.
Editor's Note: See 70 second demonstration video here:
STORExpress tenants will utilize the Boomerang Automated Self Storage
system by driving up to one of six ground floor loading bays, approach an
access door and enter their specific access code into a keypad. After an
average 90 second container retrieval time, the automated roll-up door unveils
the tenant's personally locked storage unit. When the tenant is done loading
or unloading his valuables, the system returns the storage container safely
back inside the facility where it is inaccessible without the tenant's
personal security code. Key features of the storage facility include a patent
pending Padlock Plus(TM) security system that allows access to locker units
only with entry of the proper security code, a safe and attractive common area
adjacent to STORExpress, climate controlled insulated units and the
convenience of drive up access to all units.
"This is a win, win, win for STORExpress and our Pittsburgh self storage
customers. We maximize the usage of our land, offer a unique option that
caters to the self storage consumer who wants the very best, and we generate a
stronger brand marketing message," says STORExpress owner Steve Mitnick.
