Secure Evidence Storage Lockers & CabinetsCustom Evidence Storage Solutions
Evidence lockers are designed to protect the security and integrity of evidence used by law enforcement, fire departments, court systems, correctional facilities and crime labs. Secure storage is required to prevent any unauthorized handling and the chain of custody. Evidence must also be protected from damage.
Pass-Through Evidence Storage
Pass-through storage allows for access to the locker’s content from two sides. The lockers are built into a wall and have an optional lockout feature that prevents a front door from opening when a rear door is in use. With this configuration, evidence does not need to be transported several times throughout the facility.
These systems are available with a single rear door or multiple rear doors. This is an excellent method for placing evidence into lockers from one room while allowing a laboratory to process specimens on the other side of the locker wall. Pass-through storage provides easier access when different teams need to work with the same materials.
Non-pass Through Evidence Storage Systems
A non-pass through system allows access from only the front of the evidence locker. This is the standard type of storage used by many facilities. These systems can be used with key locking, using different keys for each compartment and a master key for full access.
Evidence Drying Cabinets
Spacesaver’s evidence drying cabinets are perfect for air-drying blood and biological evidence safely and securely. The cabinet’s system connects easily to air ducts in order to vent to the outside which also helps to reduce odours. It also includes a host of design features for optimal air circulation and maximum security. What’s more, it’s easy to clean so you can save some time and focus on your work.
How the system works:
Spacesaver systems ensure quality with the use of 14 and 18-gauge steel construction. The door hinges are constructed of stainless steel and run the full length of the door with no exposed fasteners. The fully welded double door construction also features a full steel liner. All compartments are fully enclosed, eliminating the potential for cross-contamination.
Refrigeration units can be installed into many locker systems. Keyless systems are available that allow for quick, authorized access without a key. Spacesaver DSM evidence lockers are available in Pass-Through and Non-pass Through models. The frame comes with a lifetime warranty.
Enhanced Security with Digital Locks
Lockers can be designed with individual combinations or keys, with a master lock for easy inspections through a front panel. Digital locks provide another option for security. Modular Spacesaver systems permit the use of numerous accessory features with interchangeable options, allowing end-user configuration. Lockers are manufactured with all-welded construction and have a powder coat finish to add durability.
Some of the benefits of secure evidence storage lockers and cabinets are:
- More than 35 configuration choices for customized storage.
- Refrigeration storage for sensitive specimens.
- Spacesaver ControLocR technology for real-time monitoring of access to any evidence storage system.
