What weapons are being stored? Do you have optics or other gear that needs designated storage space as well? Do you prefer to have your cabinets hold only one type of weapon at a time? Do you want to keep your rifles in the same unit as your pistols? Or, perhaps you need individual lockers designed to hold a variety of weapon types? The best weapon locker configuration for your specific armory is driven greatly on what needs to be stored and how they need to be stored, so starting with a game plan centered on weapons and gear groupings makes the entire armory design process easier.
Each SEKURE weapon storage rack has a universal back panel designed to facilitate standard or custom configurations by using a variety of components. The modular components, which includes shelves, barrel saddles, pistol pegs and more, will allow you to alternate between vertical and horizontal storage, different layouts, and even switch components between units easily. Because the components are designed to hold specific weapon types, you won’t have to worry about poor fit, unsecure weapons, or difficult weapon removal, which are issues often reported to us by end-users of the plastic, bungee-style, one-size-fits-all weapon storage components.
With a starting game plan in place, our experienced armory design team will set you up with cabinets, racks, and lockers that perfectly fit all your weapons, and since all SEKURE weapon storage components are modular and easily reconfigured, your armory storage solution will always be adaptable to your future weapon storage challenges.
When designing your armory, consider the overall layout and its effect on personnel safety and weapon security. Think about how armory access doors swing open. Are open racks behind a main locked entry door acceptable security, or are individual locking weapon enclosures required? Where are desks, tables and chairs located? Are there obstructions in the ceiling that may impact the placement or limit the height of weapon racks or cabinets? Visualizing these considerations in advance will improve the planning process and ensure surprises during installation are minimized.
Our armory consultants have years of experience designing weapon storage solutions for the most discriminating customers. They understand the constraints of installing weapon racks and cabinets in enclosed spaces. They can also help you visualize your armory design using 3D software that will show exact placement of the planned weapon storage configuration in a virtual mockup of your spaces.
If you find that the location you’ve designated for your armory is not large enough to handle the volume of weapons and gear you plan to store, consider using high density mobile aisle systems to increase space. These systems allow access to more lockers, racks, cabinets, and storage shelves in a smaller footprint. This is achieved by sliding storage racks along a track in the floor, where access is provided one aisle at a time. In many cases, the use of high density storage systems can deliver storage density increases of more than 50%.
