Armories inside of Jails and Prisons are typically heavily underfunded and seen using storage for weapons made from wood or from old military surplus storage racks.

Jail & Prison Weapon Storage Systems require efficient storage to secure and store weapons with rapid retrieval always a possibility.

Weapons such as single launchers and 40mm multi-launchers as well as shotguns and rifles are commonly found in jail and prison facilities. Combat Weapon Storage offers adjustable weapon holders to secure the front and back of each of these weapon’s buttstocks, ensuring proper storage. Individually adjustable barrel saddles properly support the correct height setting for each weapon length.

Jail + Prison Weapon Storage

Jails & Prisons store weapons in separate areas from inmates. These areas are typically outside of the jail compound but within a secure section.

Combat Weapon Storage has implemented both locking weapon racks with doors and our open weapon shelving in secure rooms for prison projects.

The level of security for storing weapons is a facility by facility decision. In our experience we have found that weapon shelving works best in these environments as they are highly restricted access spaces and allow for effective sight counts.

Storage Shelving Systems

Storage Shelving for ammunition is another common requirement we see inside of jails and prisons. Ammunition is typically stored boxed in bulk quantities with chemical agents in specialized chemical storage cabinets.

Ammunition is quite possibly the heaviest item we get requests to store across all storage projects. Because of this, configuring shelving for the highest weight capacities will ensure shelves do not bow or deflect due to the weight of the ammunition on the shelves.

This will also require making sure that ammunition is not stacked too many levels high per shelf level to maintain the right loading per shelf.

Transporting Weapons

Weapon Transportation inside jails and prisons can consist of open weapon transport carts or secure locking weapon racks with a transport base.

Open weapon carts store up to 12 assorted vertical rifles per side or 24 weapons per cart featuring handles on both sides of the cart and 2 casters with brakes.

Secure locking weapon racks with a transport base are attached from inside of the weapon rack with a separate heavy duty base with 5″ casters, 2 of which featuring brakes that help support moving the weapons throughout the facility.
