Free storage
Explanation:
(I.e. perhaps disassembled on the ground, rather than on racks.)

Alternative answer: Free-standing storage. ((As per Liz Askew.)) (I don't like this alternative because it is ambiguous and causes the reader to pause unnecessarily.)
If the subject is a fire-control sprinkler system, as is more likely, the same principles apply. In the case of such an internal sprinkler, the mode of storage may relate to only certain pats of the system, such as the downstream parts, rather than the entire system
