Keyless Locks for Cabinets
While a cabinet is not designed to be a safe, it may as well be considering the types of documents and items placed in these storage apparatus. From filing cabinets, to overhead office and home cabinets, to gun cabinets, and medicine cabinets, the time for a safer and more accomodating locking device is now. There is no worse feeling than needing to get something out of the cabinet quickly and not being able to locate the keys, or opening the cabinet only to find what was suppose to be in there has vanished.
Nearly all cabinets come supplied with a basic cam lock, which hooks into place on the interior side of the cabinet door. These regular style cam locks are operated with small keys, and constitute the simplest of lock fastenings. These types of locks are used because they virtually add no cost to the overall cabinet price. The problem is the potential liability, cost, and annoyance this setup leads to.
Collectively, homeowners and businesses spend hundreds of millions each year on security systems to protect against an external threat. While important, it can't be stated enough that any perimeter security strategy must dovetail with a plan to protect against an insider threat, and a plan to strengthen the security of interior cabinets.
This is where keyless locks for cabinets are playing an increasing role. Keyless cabinet locks offer individuals and companies better control and high-security because they streamline the process for accessing the cabinets, and serve to defend against theft.
