How Military Storage Solutions Can Help You Optimize Space

At ADS, Inc., we understand that military bases need to do a lot. Operating like their own make-shift towns and cities, bases host all of the items and equipment necessary for day-to-day survival and combat readiness. To make the most out of their storage, the military needs high-volume storage systems that also save valuable space.

Even outside of the base setting, storage solutions are a key necessity in military life: hosting everything from weapons to medical stockpiles. Wherever military equipment is stored, it needs to be a) easily accessible and b) portable for training or any impending deployment.

Military Storage Needs

The military needs to stay prepared--and stocked--for anything.

Effective storage solutions are both space-saving and clearly, easily organized. The less time it takes military personnel to locate or store their equipment, the more time they have to deploy or train. That’s not even mentioning the logistical and inventory nightmare that occurs when equipment is lost or misplaced.

The best storage solutions are multi-faceted. This could mean cleverly disguised storage in the walls of existing buildings, or storage containers that can double as a training or eating space. Importantly, they must also be secure--either through tough exteriors or limited access technology.

Military Storage Lockers and Containers

ADS partners with vendors like Spacesaver to offer high-quality, military storage solutions to maximize your space and organization.

Bulk supplies that require innovative, portable, and efficient storage solutions include:

Military ordnance must be safely stored at all times and ready for transportation when necessary.

Spacesaver – Universal Weapons Rack

Fully configurable and deployable, the original Universal Weapons Rack was designed with input from military personnel with one goal in mind: to be the best weapons storage system for operational readiness. Most optics and accessories can remain assembled and zeroed to weapons while in storage, and fully retractable, perforated doors and sides help streamline weapons inventory. The UWR system completely protects weapons from movement, vibration, shock, and abrasion, which means there is no need to re-pack for deployment.

Military uniforms and combat accessories must be organized and accessible at all times--all while not taking up too much space around camp.

Spacesaver – Tactical Readiness Lockers

These lockers keep gear organized and protected with rugged, all-steel storage that is built to last. The modular design of the Tactical Readiness Locker (TRL) gives you the flexibility to choose the best option for your space and your needs. Outfit the interior by choosing from a variety of modular accessories.

Medical military personnel are always on hand and require an array of medical equipment to keep troops safe. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the need to effectively stockpile Personal Protective Equipment, or PPE.

Spacesaver – Healthcare Sterile Storage System

This highly modular, fully flexible storage system is perfect for pharmacies – and can also provide highly customizable storage in any area of your hospital. Hang bins, trays and pegs on its innovative rail system to maximize your medication storage, optimize your workspace and change your storage as your needs change. An optional mobile feature further increases your storage density.

When space is at a premium, turn to high density storage systems to make the most of your available space. These storage solutions have a minimal footprint while still allowing for the storage of a large volume of equipment or documents. By mounting shelving or cabinets onto a carriage and rail system, mobile storage eliminates fixed aisles and compacts storage space.

Spacesaver – 4-Post Shelving Mounted on High Density Storage Systems

Spacesaver's universally slotted 4-Post Shelving makes the most of your space, and you can optimize space even more effectively by mounting our 4-Post Shelving on high-density storage systems. These systems use movable 'carriages" that slide along rails to eliminate empty aisles. Choose either a mechanical-assist system (handle) or an electronically powered option to open aisles at the point of need.

Spacesaver’s military storage solutions are specifically designed to ensure your weapons storage, supplies, equipment, materials, and records are always ready and secure. Browse our collection here.
