Secure Military Storage Locker Installation at Dallas Naval Air Station
Utilizing Space with Wire Mesh Storage Lockers
WireCrafters teamed up with Storage Equipment Company of Dallas, Texas to help solve a storage problem at Fort Worth Naval Air Station (NAS). The NAS, like most military installations, has a lot of gear that must be stored, including everything required for the sailors in time of deployment. With a limited area in a helicopter hangar, Storage Equipment worked with NAS to design ground floor and second level storage lockers using wire partitions and a mezzanine system. As seen in the photos, WireCrafters enclosed the mezzanine to create a secure area.
WireCrafters Slide Doors Save Space
With space limitations, the storage cages were designed using slide doors to access the wire partition security areas. The slide doors move to the side of the door opening, in front of the adjacent wall panel. In many cases hinged doors would be used but they must have room to swing into an aisle way, and for the NAS there wasn’t enough room. The doors were placed in the center of the security enclosure so shelving units could be accessed on either side of the wire partition cages. The doors have built in mortise cylinder locks keyed differently from each other for added security, however a master key can be provided so one person can have access to any part of the secured area.
WireCrafters Provides Security Around Mezzanine Systems
Storage Equipment of Dallas had the option of installing the wire partition panels either between the mezzanine uprights or running the security fencing continuously on the outside of the uprights. Either way provides a high secure area for military storage. When posts and panels are installed on top of the mezzanine, WireCrafters can provide plates to go on the underside of the structure for anchoring the posts securely.
WireCrafters and the Military
WireCrafters has been providing wire partitions to the military for over 30 years. In addition to the wire partitions for Unit Storage Cages, we also provide TA-50 gear lockers for individual troops. The TA-50 Military Gear Locker, which measures approximately 42″ x 36″ x 78″, is large enough to store all the specialty gear for each soldier.
