Thankfully, many police stations find that their riot gear often goes unused. However, in the event of a civil disturbance, it still needs to be organized and easily accessible to officers so they can get what they need quickly and efficiently. We offer a wide variety of storage and shelving solutions for storing police riot shields, armor, masks, helmets, canisters, and other gear and equipment to ensure that stored items are safe, secure, and organized.
Does My Storage Really Matter?
Before deciding on a storage solution, it’s important to consider a few things. What is your process to make sure there aren’t any riot shields, helmets, etc. missing from your inventory? How often do you inventory? How is gear issued to officers, and who is responsible for issuing it? Who has access to your riot gear storage area, and how is this access controlled? Do you know who has accessed the area at all times? Even if your department has never had to issue riot gear, having the answers to these questions is imperative to an efficient and safe riot response. Your storage solution should make sure that you can get the job done, not stand in the way.
Surprisingly Simple Riot Shields & Gear Storage Solutions
The solution may be easier than you think. Four-post shelving is easily customized to your specific storage application and provides fast access to riot shields, masks, armor, and other gear. Four-post shelving is incredibly versatile, which makes them ideal for specialized storage. For example, riot shields can be stored with metal dividers between them to keep them upright and separated, with optimized shelving at the top to organize additional equipment.
For even more security, powered high density shelving includes audit control and access tracking along with massive amounts of space savings. Powered high density shelves allow you to safely store riot gear out of the way when not in use, and access it easily when you need it with just the push of a button. Riot gear can be stored in a particular carriage that can only be accessed via a PIN code. Additionally, four-post shelving can be mounted on the mobile carriages to save on costs.
Rolling security doors are another option to further enhance the security of your storage area, which you can view and buy online here.
