State Crime Lab Storage

gun storage system mobile slat wallsFor public safety storage, space is often at a premium. Depending on the type of facility, law enforcement buildings may need to store weapons, records, evidence (which could be heavy or stored in boxes), and inmate property. Since building expansions take up precious time and money, many facilities are instead installing space-saving storage systems to utilize the space they have more effectively. A state crime lab recently contacted Southwest Solutions Group® to do just this; the solution was an all-encompassing property and evidence storage system with space saver racks and cabinets. Read on to find out how each solution was implemented (see images).

Mobile Shelving with Slatwalls

Because high density mobile shelving is so versatile, the shelves were able to be mounted with cantilever slatwalls for storing weapons. Slatwalls were also placed on adjacent walls to allow for more storage space. Each weapon is given its own storage slot, which keeps them organized and visible for quick inventory.

Mobile Records Shelving

Since the mobile shelving with slatwalls worked so well for weapons storage, an additional mobile shelving system was installed for storing and organizing records to replace lateral file cabinets and shelving.

Yet another mobile system was installed with floorless rails, meaning that they didn't need to be installed into the floor and could be relocated or modified at any time. The shelves were mounted with drawers, a further testament to the customization ability of high density shelves.

Floorless Heavy-Duty Shelves

For heavy boxes and other bulky items, a floorless mobile pallet rack system was installed without having to be drilled into the floor. Mobile pallet racks have a high load capacity while offering the same space savings as high density mobile shelving, so they were a perfect addition to the department's efforts to compact their storage.
