A study completed on Dec. 15 in North Carolina at an independent demonstration facility for pile driven racking systems revealed that part counts and connection points for the GameChange Max-Span pile racking system are substantially lower than all competitors that were tested. The parts counts were all conducted for 8 span, 2 up in portrait configuration tables, and did not include module hardware. Systems counted were from competitors representing a significant cross section of the designs prevalent today in the racking market in the United States. Part counts for GameChange were 27% to 37% lower than competitors according to the study.
