High-density pallet racks for evidence storage provide an excellent solution for efficiently storing large, bulky items in property and evidence facilities. These heavy-duty movable pallet racks maximize warehouse storage space, enabling you to store up to twice as much evidence in the same footprint.

When storing property and evidence for law enforcement, storage space is a precious and often a limited commodity. This is especially true when storing large items like furniture, TVs, and other bulky evidence. So how can property and evidence facilities make the most of limited storage space to accommodate all these large items that must be stored and retained for decades?

High-Density Pallet Racks for Evidence Storage

Evidence storage high-density pallet racks for policeWith a high-density pallet rack system, traditional pallet racks mount on movable bases that slide back and forth on floor rails. The racks compact together, leaving space for a single movable access aisle. The unoccupied aisle space of a traditional static pallet rack system converts into storage, which means the high-density pallet racks can double your storage capacity in the same footprint.

The compacting design of high-density pallet racks does not limit access to stored items. When retrieving or storing an item, users can easily open the desired aisle with the press of a button. And for more extensive storage systems which require more frequent access, the system can be designed with multiple access aisles that can open simultaneously.

The heavy-duty evidence pallet rack systems are powered and controlled by a push-button or touchpad. The racks move automatically to provide access to the necessary aisle. For smaller bulk rack alternatives, you can access the storage racks manually with an ergonomic three-spoke mechanical-assist handle. Please read about our different types of evidence storage here.

Each high-density pallet rack system is equipped with safety features to minimize the risk of employee injury while using the system. Systems with mechanical-assist handles lock to prevent anyone from opening or closing aisles while the system is in use. Powered options include a floor-level safety sweep feature which automatically stops a moving carriage if it encounters a person or object in the aisle. These systems also have the option of additional entry sensors that lock down the system whenever a person enters an aisle.

Designed for safe and space-efficient storage of bulky items, high-density pallet racks are perfect for warehouse evidence storage. Please read about how the Houston Police Department implemented high-density pallet racks in their state-of-the-art new property and evidence storage facility here.

Benefits of High-Density Pallet Racks for Evidence Storage

Bulk evidence high-density storage for police

Save Floor Space

One of the primary reasons to use high-density pallet racks for evidence storage is to save floor space. With police departments adding thousands of items to their property and evidence storage every year, storage space fills up fast. High-density pallet racks are an excellent solution for facilities that have run out of evidence storage space and for newly constructed facilities to ensure the maximum capacity to accommodate their evidence storage needs for years to come. 

By compacting the storage racks together to leave as few as one movable access aisle, this evidence pallet rack system can reduce floor space requirements for storing evidence by over 60% or double your storage capacity in your existing footprint.

Save Money

Due to their space efficiency, high-density evidence pallet racks can save law enforcement agencies money. Increasing your property and evidence storage capacity with a high-density pallet rack system primarily eliminates the costly need to renovate or expand your storage facility when you run out of space.

Evidence pallet racks are a cost-effective solution for increasing your evidence storage capacity. You can convert your existing stationary shelving to a high-density system to save money. Floor tracks install on your existing concrete without needing leveling or other modifications.

Store Items of All Sizes

Evidence pallet rack systems are available in a variety of configurations ranging from a 3,000- to 30,000-pound storage capacity per pallet rack section. This means they are suited to accommodate all types of evidence, from smaller boxes and bags to large, bulky items like furniture and TVs.

Safe for Refrigerated Environments

DNA evidence and other biological materials often comprise significant evidence storage. These materials must be stored in a temperature-controlled environment for long-term preservation. Fortunately, high-density pallet racks can be safely installed in refrigerated or freezer environments, operating in temperatures as low as -20°F.

With these high-density evidence storage solutions, you can continue to maximize your storage capacity even when storing sensitive materials in refrigerated environments. Read more about high-density racks for temperature-controlled evidence storage rooms here.

There was not much room to work but they managed to get the job done quickly, allowing space for me to continue to work and watch them at the same time.
