How to Choose the Right Key Cabinet for Your Business
Where are key cabinets used?
Key cabinets are used in a host of industries. Estate agents, landlords, offices, vacation rentals, vehicle hire, car showrooms, hospitals, schools and retail outlets are just some examples.
From small businesses to multi-national organizations with multiple sites, with key cabinets ranging in capacity from 20 to 3000 keys, there will be a solution for every need.
What are the different types of key cabinets?
Smaller key cabinets, for example, those with a capacity of up to 50 keys, are usually made from mild steel and are secured with a key or hasp lock. For smaller quantities of keys, a cabinet without numbering and with fixed hooks is usually sufficient. As you go up in quantity, however, it may be helpful to have hooks with numbers or a color-coded system.
Larger key cabinets, also known as system key storage, have the added benefit of adjustable hooks for improved flexibility for bigger keys or keys in bunches. These will often provide a colour coded numbering system, and will usually accommodate up to 600 keys. Some will feature extra wide hooks and deeper bodies for larger bunches of keys, particularly useful for real estate and automotive businesses.
Wall mountable, heavy duty key cabinets made from thick steel are perfect for organisations in the automotive industry, providing added security and protection against keyless car theft.
Key cabinets with deposit slots are ideal if you want people to deposit keys without being able to access the rest of the keys inside, for example in a holiday lodge site office or a vehicle rental office where customers are returning keys.
Electronic keypad or biometric locking key cabinets can be programmed to only allow access to certain individuals, and access to particular members of staff can be blocked if necessary, for example in the event of them leaving the organization. It is also possible to record an audit trail with this type of key cabinet so that you can monitor the release of keys by user and date/time. Some will show the information on a screen on the front of the key cabinet, whilst others will allow you to connect the cabinet via USB to a computer so that you can download the information you need.
Simpler options include key and combination lock operated models. If you want to ensure your key cabinet doors are less likely to be left unlocked, choose a slam-shut model.
For a more sophisticated level of security, key cabinets fitted with euro cylinder locks are a good choice. These locks can be keyed alike to match other locks within your organization so that there is no need for staff to carry multiple keys for multiple uses. There is also the option to go for double-bitted key locks that trigger the release of a robust three-way bolting system, such as those found on security safes.
