Argos Universal Weapons Racks for Efficient Weapon Storage

Posted May 10, 2016 | by Argos Security

These Universal Weapons Racks (UWRs) are built for open storage. UWRs are designed to be used in secured rooms or facilities to provide efficient, open weapon storage that is readily accessible and that fits the layout of your armory.

They are built with a welded, heavy-duty, all-steel modular construction with 16-18-gauge steel. A powdercoat finish is available in 4 standard colors, and a lifetime warranty on parts is included.

The Universal Weapons Racks offer the same benefits and features of the weapon storage cabinet selection, like maximum storage and full customization, while adding:

  • Accessibility
  • Flexible heights and widths
  • Affordable layouts

They are also completely compatible with ArgosMOBILE & High Density Systems.

Universal Weapons Racks can be configured to accommodate storage for a wide variety of weapons and gear. They are commonly used to store:

  • Long guns
  • Rifles
  • Handguns
  • Ammunition
  • Helmets
  • Tripods
  • Backpacks
  • Tasers
  • Optics

There are many options available and the right one for you will depend on what you want to store.

Every Universal Weapons Rack comes with the Modular Component Mounting System (MCMS) to provide for flexibility. With the MCMS, your racks can be secured to a wall, back-to-back, or side-to-side for stability in whatever layout you need.

All Universal Weapons Racks are manufactured in the U.S.A. in our own Pennsylvania-based facilities and are backed by the Datum® Lifetime Warranty.
