One storage concern that affects jails, juvenile detention centers, and other law enforcement departments is not having an efficient inmate property storage system. Property storage rooms with limited space can quickly become overcrowded and disorganized. This can create issues such as misplaced or lost property and stress employees trying to locate and access stored items.

A solution to these problems lies in high-density mobile shelving and an efficient inmate property storage system. High-density storage systems can double your inmate property storage capacity in your existing footprint, resolving issues of insufficient detention storage space and affording improved organization and accessibility.

High-Density Mobile Shelving for Inmate Property Storage

Inmate Property Storage VideoIn a high-density mobile shelving system, shelving units slide on floor tracks and compact together when not in use. The mobile storage system saves space by eliminating static aisles; instead, access to stored items is by using a single movable aisle. By converting the former aisle into storage space, high-density systems double your storage capacity in the same footprint.

High-density storage systems can accommodate a variety of shelving racks and configurations, including shelving units that you may already have. This makes them an excellent solution for storing inmate property in jails, detention centers, and other correctional facilities.

Benefits of High-Density Inmate Property Storage Systems

Space Savings

Inmate box property storage for policeBy converting wasted aisle space into storage, high-density shelving systems allow you to double your inmate storage capacity in the same footprint or store the same amount of inmate property in half the space. This means you could repurpose former storage space or consolidate inmate storage into a single facility. For example, one detention center had previously stored bulky property off-site but was able to move these items into their onsite storage facility after installing high-density inmate property storage. Installing a high-density storage system can also provide the capacity to accommodate future inmate storage needs.

Improved Organization

High-density inmate property storage systems are highly customizable to meet your exact storage needs. Along with inmate property storage bags and boxes, these shelving systems can accommodate bulkier property, files and records, supplies, and more.

The inmate property storage system’s ability to efficiently accommodate items of all sizes in limited storage space affords improved organization. When inmate property storage is no longer overcrowded, everything can have its proper place, which cuts down on lost property.

Increased Accessibility

When inmate property storage is well-organized in high-density shelving, it becomes easier to locate and access needed items. Because the high-density system compacts inmate property in a smaller footprint, employees don’t have to walk as far to access stored items. Personnel can easily open the desired aisle using either an ergonomic hand-crank for manual systems or a push-button for powered systems.

“The installation guys were very professional, courteous and efficient. 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. They vacuumed and cleaned up all the packing material/boxes exhibiting true professionalism. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job in a remarkably short amount of time.”
