The climate in which Police Forces have to operate continues to change and become more demanding in terms of range/threat along with the major challenge of funding constraints.
To meet these criteria and achieve compatibility across force borders, MSL has introduced a range of price competitive products which can have the interiors altered to facilitate changing equipment requirements.
The ARV Weapons Chest is a tailor made weapons storage solution for each customer. At our factory in West Sussex we are able to custom build chests to house a wide range of firearms and ammunition, to suit a range of vehicles including the Volvo V90 and BMW X5/X3.
The locking mechanism is an important factor, we can offer single point locking for small units and 2 point locking for larger units. High quality keylocks (to differ or pass) enable easy/reliable operation in vehicles. As standard, an Assa Lock with a Kaba Quattro + cylinder is fitted. The main advantage this offers is that these keys cannot be cut other than through Municipal, ensuring no duplicates can be created. Digital locks can be fitted to provide keyless entry.
Internal fittings made from carpet-faced metal or water-jet cut high density foam enables a wide variety of firearms and ammunition to be securely stored.
The ARV Weapons Chest comes in two variation:
The Drawer-Based Unit: heavy duty ball bearing runners provide easy operation, with lift-out tray allowing weapons to be transferred within their foam lining from vehicle to armoury. Additional trays can be supplied to offer alternative weapon options to be carried. Key operated 2-point locking is enhanced by the drawer front/body interlock design. The unit is fabricated from 1.5/1.2mm stainless 4003 steel, reinforced to survive the rigours of operational use. Typical ext Dims: 270H x 1050W x 700D
Top Opening Unit: assisted by gas struts and fits into 60% of the rear seat. Locking is via a high security Euro cylinder driving 2-way boltwork.
