A series of automotive industry delays have kept law enforcement departments and vehicle upfitters on their toes over the last few months. Many have talked with us about their needs to pivot quickly to different SUV models for short-term needs.
Easy transfer between vehicles
The simple design of our automated weapons lockers coupled with standardized dimensions allows for easy transfer between vehicle platforms and vehicle types. This makes it possible to “buy ahead” on weapon lockers during regular budget cycles and install the units once new vehicles are available for delivery. Universal design saves a department money by not requiring an additional locker purchase when a vehicle is retired or equipment is switched between vehicles. All that is required is a new installation kit if changing vehicle types.
Flexibility through universal design
The universal design of the Estes AWS SUV Rapid Access Weapon Locker 2.0 allows for easy installation in a variety of police vehicles and also allows for stackability of all SUV locker products. The dimensions of the 2.0 locker (Exterior – 42.0” wide x 9.15” tall x 20” deep) make this locker very flexible to install across the fleet, including multiple SUV models from Ford, Dodge and Chevy.
Configuration options provide further flexibility
Beyond the base package automated weapon locker, Estes AWS also offers options for fences, auxiliary drawers, and storage boxes. Several of the most common configuration options are illustrated on our website. Further customization is also available through Estes AWS to meet more specific or unique needs, as highlighted in our news feed earlier this month. For those who are more exclusively focused on sedan or pickup truck weapon storage, Estes AWS also has several specialized configurations available.
