See how this National Guard unit designed custom lockers for issued gear to help prevent military property loss and improve readiness and accountability.
Keeping track of government property that’s used by hundreds of soldiers can be a challenge, especially when soldiers have to store their gear at home. That was the case for the North Carolina National Guard. With no central storage space for large mobility bags and other gear, soldiers had to take items home or store them in their vehicles, which led to missing costly and valuable gear and the resulting paperwork and lost time.
A study found that over 90% of Organizational Clothing and Individual Equipment (OCIE) military property losses were occurring in ranks E1 through E5. To keep soldiers’ valuable equipment secure and accounted for, leadership concluded that the most effective solution would be to create a locker room in each National Guard readiness center in the state.
Durable lockers help save time, streamline inventory processes,
and prevent property loss.
A variety of accessories are available, including shelves, drawers, hooks, and more.
The local Spacesaver consultant designed a custom FreeStyle® Personal Storage Lockers to accommodate the soldiers’ large mobility bags and other equipment. The lockers are 78” tall by 32” wide by 24” deep, with two shelves, two coat hooks, and a hasp lock. Each sturdy steel locker has a perforated mesh door to provide airflow while also obscuring the view of expensive equipment kept inside.
The custom Spacesaver lockers were a perfect fit, and they have now been installed in centers throughout the state. The new locker rooms have the potential to save the North Carolina National Guard millions of dollars and thousands of hours by preventing property loss and the associated paperwork.
