The History of Space Saver Rowing Systems
SSRS began in 2004 as when Douglas Lumsden got frustrated by the muddle of oar storage in his rowing club in Canberra, Australia. Determined to provide safe and effective solutions for messy oar racking, he designed an Oar Hanging Rack. This is still in production today and remains our most popular product.
The success of the oar brackets gave Douglas the momentum to attack other storage challenges for the whole rowing shed, giving rowers peace of mind by letting them literally “hang their performance on us”.
Space Saver’s vision is to enhance rowing performance by spending less time and resources on storage and boat repairs.
Experienced rower Douglas Lumsden saw that there was a better, more efficient way to organise his club’s rowing boat storage which would make equipment easier to find, care for and store without damage.
By developing items which are heavy-duty and long lasting and tailored to rowing needs, Douglas removed stressful elements from the upkeep of rowing equipment. Space Saver Rowing Systems products are tested and evaluated by rowers and dragon boaters, giving best solutions for storage.
We continue to innovate introducing sliding arm boat racks, electronics storage boxes, and in the following years, mechanical stacker racks for coach boats and dragon boats.
SSRS staff enjoy “the slide of a hull through the water” but understand the immense effort required to run a club in terms of resources, the dedication of rowers, club/committee members and coaches.
Our intimate understanding of how internal space can be made to work effectively makes Space Saver Rowing Systems the ideal solution. We work with your organisation to meet your on-water targets while providing you with the peace of mind of a well-run building.
