High-Density Weapon Storage: SecureIt vs Space Saver

High-Density Weapon Storage: SecureIt vs Space Saver

Comparing the SecureItĀ® high-density weapon storage racks and the space saving racks.

Don’t let the name fool you

SecureIt Tactical Weapon Racks are for more efficient and save much more space the space saver racks

compare secureit weapon racks and Space saver

Both SecureIt and the universal racks are available in stacked 44″ units or tall 84″ models.
The tall Universal racks are not popular. At 84″ high, the retracting door system on the Universals does not work well as there is too much flex or yaw in the cabinet design. SecureIt racks are available with bi-fold door or retracting doors

Using Space saver racks


Using SecureIt Model 84 racks



In the above example, the Space saving racks take up the whole armory. This will be a very crowded work environment, with no room for growth of any kind. Using the SecureIt Tactical racks, there is dramatically more space available. SecureIt high-density weapon storage racks would allow for the storage of a larger number of weapons and gear in the same room. You would also have space for a workbench, shelving for mounts and case and bin storage -see below.


This is the same arms room now set up with the proper weapon / gear storage and work spaces.

Weapon storage design legend


Using SecureIt Tactical Weapon racks frees up enough space to add some valuable storage to the armory. Here we have added wide-span shelving for mounts and cases, a Maple top workbench with modular drawers and a wall of cabbies for NVGs, radios and other gear.



The Same armory now configured for maximum weapon storage


This is the same armory using Tactical Model 84 weapon racks. There is quite a bit more space available using the SecureIt weapon racks.We have added additional racks to fill the space. This armory now can hold 1152 rifles



Adding Crew served weapons to the list

In the example above we are storing M4s only. If I add some crew-served weapons to the MTOE list, there is a dramatic effect on efficiency. The “space saving” racks really struggle. In fact, they require a lot more space.

Armory Weapon List:

  • M2HB 10
  • MK19 10
  • M240B 18
  • M249 18
  • M4 540

Using space saving weapon racks


The MTOE list above fills the armory with space saving racks


Using SecureIt Tactical weapon racks


Tactical racks require about half the space for the same MTOE. This clearly illustrates the dramatic difference in space efficiency.


There is now room for all the weapons on the list, plus an additional 486 M4s. Almost twice the amount of M4s from the original requirement.

As I clearly show in the above examples, there is a significant space saving advantage using the SecureIt Tactical Model 84 weapon racks over the traditional space saving racks.

Please note: the Tactical racks used in all the example are standard product and not a special high density version. All weapons in the racks are stored with a 2 7/8″ – 3″ barrel spacing (standard weapon spacing).
