Storing A Higher Volume of Preparedness

Innovative storage solutions to protect and serve all your ordnance.

September 29th, 2022 - 3 min read

Functioning like small cities, military installations house a tremendous amount of gear, supplies, and weapons to support the health, safety, and readiness of those on base.

In the case of weapons storage, there are two major considerations – time and space – that are instrumental in choosing which solutions are used and where they will be located.

Protecting Time and Space

Let’s start with time. From training to rapid deployment, military personnel need to have quick access to their weapon storage and the confidence that each ordnance is where it should be and is ready for action. Time spent searching or sighting in their weapons is time taken away from sharpening their skills, or when deployed, defending their position.

Military installations house not only service members, but their families and civilian support staff as well. With all that is needed to provide proper care for residents, optimizing weapons storage space is vital to maintaining order, access, and accountability across many areas on base.

Spacesaver and its military storage experts have a wide variety of high-density weapons storage solutions to help base commanders keep their service members and their gear safe, secure, and ready for action. Let’s take a look at some of these solutions and how they can help boost preparedness and efficiency at your installation.

More Space On Base

Military arms and their supporting accessories are designed for dependable operation in the field. Part of what keeps them dependable is the method in which they are stored. In order to keep all types of ordnance performing at the highest level while occupying the smallest footprint possible, storage solutions must be flexible to adapt to varying sizes and volumes of weapons.

Spacesaver’s high-density mobile storage systems ensure that a wide variety of weapons – from pistols to long guns – and gear are kept accessible, secure, and at the ready. By eliminating fixed aisles, base commanders are able to conserve valuable floorspace within the armory, allowing room for future ordnance like the Sig Sauer XM7 and XM250 and Vortex Smart Optic that will be fielded in late 2023.

UWR You Ready for Action?

For base commanders, safely transporting weapons from the base to the range to the battlefield can be both time and resource consuming. Without a trusted mode of transport, weapons and gear can be damaged and desynchronized, adding unnecessary prep time to an already regimented schedule.

Spacesaver’s Universal™ Weapons Rack (UWR®) provides a versatile solution for weapons storage and transport that allows you to go from stationary to in transit without additional preparation. UWR’s flexible configuration can securely and efficiently support a variety of weapons, completely preventing them from movement, shock, vibration, and abrasion in route to their destination.

Room to Bring Out (and Store) The Big Guns

For larger divisions, efficient weapons transport requires a larger storage solution to safely house the number of weapons and gear needed to support their troops. To help in saving time, effort, and space taken up by employing multiple smaller weapons storage solutions, Spacesaver’s engineers developed the Universal Expeditionary™ Weapons Storage System (UEWSS).

This Type 1 TriCON container is designed to efficiently store, ship, and support the contents of multiple weapons racks in less space. Its strategic design enables the container to be easily transported via forklift, allowing personnel to expend their energy on other projects. The standard size of the UEWSS also permits it to be stored and stacked on flatbeds for economical and secure travel.
