SafeSystem Outdoor Book Returns

50 C-Series SafeSystem Book Return with Cart

Help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 with a SafeSystem

  • Promote social distancing
  • No contact returns
  • Disease resistant materials
  • Quarantine storage solutions

Kingsley Outdoor Depositories promote social distancing by encouraging patrons to return materials outside your library from the convenience of their vehicles or into a walk-up return placed on the sidewalk. No staff interaction necessary.

Our KwikDrop Depository design allows patrons the to ability to make no contact returns. They simply insert the materials spine first and push them through without needing to pull down any doors or touch the depository.

Studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of Hospital Infections show that COVID-19 dies up to 15 times faster on aluminum than on stainless steel surfaces. That’s 2 to 8 hours for aluminum compared to 3 to 5 days for steel. We've made the depository flaps and surrounding areas on our Kingsley SafeSystems raw aluminum to maximize this disease shedding benefit. In addition, all powder coated areas of the SafeSystem cabinets feature an anti-microbial coating that kills or slows the growth of microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, protozoans, and fungi such as mold and mildew.

All SafeSystems include a matching SafeCart. These carts are also raw aluminum and feature an attached hinged lid. Leave the lid at the side of the cart when it's in the return and simply flip the lid to close it once the cart has been removed. This allows you to contain any contaminated materials and also serves to protect your books and other media during the quarantine period.

C-Series Exclusive Features

Anti-Collision Design

The depository hood extends approximately 13” from the curb for easier deposits from vehicles. The cabinet sits safely back, avoiding most collisions.

Recessed Depository Opening

The depository opening on the C-Series is set back into the hood so that it is surrounded on all 4 sides for additional weather protection. No need to worry about water splashing up from drive-up returns on a rainy day.

Internal Liquid Diversion System

Nothing is 100% foolproof but we try to get as close as possible. If any liquids do manage to make it in through the depository opening, the C-Series depository is designed to divert it away from the collection area.

Locking Depository Opening

All C-Series returns come with two cam locks, one on either side of the depository opening, to secure the flap and keep the unit from accepting anymore items.

The S-Series depository opening protrudes slightly from the body of the unit and is fully accessible from all sides. In addition to giving the entire unit a smaller footprint, this also makes it easier for walk-up deposits as it allows for deposits to be made from a variety of angles.
