Security Forces Squadron Mobile Weapon Racks
Security Forces Squadron Mobile Weapon Racks allow arms rooms to store more weapons than the space is intended for using static, free standing weapon racks. By placing weapon racks on top of mobile carriages, aisles can be collapsed and opened with an ergonomic 3 spoke handle when access is required versus always being open.
This concept of rolling carriages includes structural track (seismic track in seismic zones) that is fully grouted to your concrete slab to stay level to the high spot the slab, structurally anchored and then has wood flooring between the tracks to eliminate tripping hazards. Wood flooring can be finished with non-skid rubber flooring or a finished wood flooring product. There is also an entry ramp into the carriage system. This ramp does not stick out beyond the front of the carriages.
Placing weapon racks on mobile carriages adds roughly 6-7 inches of overall height to the weapon racks. As all arms rooms are unique, this may force you into various or shorter height weapon racks to maintain the 18″ fire sprinkler code.
Not every arms room can accommodate full height 85″ H weapon racks as free standing racks or even installed on top of mobile carriages without violating the 18″ fire sprinkler requirement. This is why we have a variety of 76″ H weapon racks available as NSN weapon racks.
We manufacture multiple standard and custom height weapon racks to stay under the fire code requirement when implementing mobile weapon rack systems.
The mobile weapon rack system is then finished with a full height steel or wood laminate end panel. The end panel covers the gear box of the carriage system.
Some arms rooms are so unique we must use Lateral Mobile Weapon Racks, which have access to weapons directly in front of the weapon racks and do not have collapsing aisles.
