As the building approached its 100-year anniversary, the Purdue Memorial Union underwent a renovation with the goal of modernizing the space while preserving its history. In addition to new dining venues, performance stages, and collaboration areas, Purdue needed a secure storage solution to house equipment and materials for their Student Clubs.
– 100-year-old building
– Structural obstacles – building columns
– Overhead obstacles – HVAC, lights, water lines, fire sprinklers
– Adaptability of wire mesh on-site
– Different size lockers available as standard
– Organized and secure storage
A visit to Purdue was necessary to determine what challenges and obstacles working in the basement of a 100-year-old building might bring. After the area was surveyed and measurements were taken, the SpaceGuard Customer Service team was able to build the perfect quote, providing Purdue with two potential solutions – BeastWire Partition Cages and/or BeastWire Lockers.
The premium offer, BeastWire Cages, offer a greater range of sizes and locking options, while BeastWire Lockers offer an economic solution that accommodates smaller storage needs. Ultimately, Purdue elected to install lockers for a more cost-effective solution.
“Purdue is extremely pleased with the simplicity and quality of the BeastWire Lockers, [and] the ability to buy from instate business is always a bonus!” –Dane Smith, F.A. Wilhelm Construction
Before the order arrived, the SpaceGuard team held a call with the installation team to ensure a painless and effective install. In the end, Purdue was satisfied with the clean look and enhanced security of the BeastWire lockers.

Driver Access Cages: Making Your Warehouse Safe
At SpaceGuard Products, we’re always focused on the safety of your facility. Our FordLogan and BeastWire Driver Access Cages are a simple solution that allow you to control access to your factory floor, distribution center, or any other building entrance. This is done by installing our 2 or 3 sided cages around entry doors, limiting the entry for truck drivers, delivery personnel and other vendors. Our Driver Access Cages are available for Quick-Ship in our standard sizes, or they can be custom ordered to fit your specific needs.
Safety & Security
You need driver access cages surrounding your building entry doors to protect your warehouse employees and to protect the visitors that are coming in through those doors. When unauthorized personnel enter your facility, they wander around looking for someone to sign a ticket or complete paperwork, and they’re not aware of the safety hazards, such as fork truck traffic areas.
A driver access cage will confine a visitor to the entryway until someone greets them and allows them further access if necessary. Limiting access to your facility decreases the risk for accidents and protects your inventory. It’s a simple way to make your facility more safe and secure.
Driver Access Cage Configuration
The most common applications are two- or three-sided access cages, that can be built freestanding or anchored to the wall at the entryway. At SpaceGuard, you have options:
As part of our Quick-Ship program, FordLogan panels are constructed of 10-guage, woven wire, more commonly known as our UNI-MESHTM 1 ½” diamond pattern. The woven wire mesh panels are stocked in standard heights of 7’, 8’ and 10’, and in widths of one-foot increments.
Standard BeastWire Mesh panels are constructed of 10-gauge wire, welded in a 2″ square mesh pattern. Panels come standard in one-foot increments up to 10′ wide and 5′ high.
Driver access cages utilize our standard hinge door with the panic bar on the facility side to allow employees to exit at any time. You have many options for lock types. A common selection for our customers is to utilize a digital keypad to control employee entry from inside the cage. Another important feature is the service window. The service window allows employees to interact with visitors through the shelved window, without granting them access to the entire facility.
Take the Next Step
In a busy warehouse, your employees don’t have time to monitor each entrance and worry about visitors wandering your floor. Make their job easier and keep everyone safe by installing a driver access cage. Contact us today at 812.523.3044 and ask about our Quick-Ship program!
