Reverse Bi-Fold Doors are a Combat Weapon Storage System exclusive feature and a huge asset to armories by reducing the floor space required to store weapon and keeping aisle space clear for armorers to do their job.

Reverse Bi-Folding Doors vs. Bi-Folding Doors

 

Combat Weapon Storage Reverse Bi-Fold Doors
  • Reverse Bi-Fold Doors fold in half on front of the weapon rack, allowing the door to be open but not obstructing the access aisle
  • This effectively gives access to half of the weapons within the weapon rack without fully opening the doors.
  • Our Reverse Bi-Fold Doors take about 2” in an aisle
  • Increases productivity, without obstructions
Competitors Bi-Fold Doors
  • Bi-Fold doors slide to the side when unlocked and stick straight off each corner 9.5” into the access aisle.
  • With racks facing each other or on mobile carriage systems, this will impede aisle spacing approximately 19”.
  • When cabinets face each other with a 36” work aisle this 19” reduces the aisle space to 17” for the workers.
  • This effectively forces the armorer to open AND close the doors to bi-fold door weapon racks to safely make it through aisle spaces while issuing weapons.

With racks facing each other or on mobile carriage systems, Bi-fold doors impede aisle spacing approximately 19”. A minimum legal aisle space for storage is considered 36” W. With this in mind, a 36” W aisle will be impeded 19”, (9.5” per side) with bi-fold weapon rack doors obstructing aisle spacing. Taking away 19” of usable space from a 36” W aisle will only allow for 17” of workable aisle space between the open weapon rack doors. This effectively forces the armorer to open AND close the doors to bi-fold door weapon racks to safely make it through aisle spaces while issuing weapons. Carrying weapons in-and-out of weapon racks with bi-fold weapon rack doors sticking out creates workflow issues for the armorers carrying weapons inside the armory.

Reverse Bi-Fold Doors
Combat Mobile Weapon Rack Systems

Reverse Bi-Fold Doors shine brighter when used in Mobile Weapon Rack Systems, with weapon racks placed on top of mobile carriages Reverse Bi-Fold Doors minimize the impact of doors obstructing the working aisle space, allowing armorers to quickly and efficiently issue weapons. Reverse Bi-Fold Doors are capable of being left open with the doors folded in half while carriages are rolled to open multiple or new access aisles. Standard Bi-Fold doors MUST be closed to move carriages or the Bi-Fold Weapon Rack Doors will collide and be damaged. This is a major disadvantage for Bi-Fold Weapon Rack Systems in mobile carriage requirements in arms rooms.
