Security containers serve the purpose of holding classified equipment, documents, material – as well as valuables, weapons, funds, communication technology, or even controlled substances. According to a Department of Defense regulation (5200.1R,) weapons, controlled substances, or funds (in cash or in the form of jewels, or precious metals) can never be kept in the same container as any classified information – since it compromises it’s safety. This results in the need for many storage containers for classified material – all of which are thoroughly tested by the General Services Administration. When these containers pass the tests, they receive an official GSA label on their front exterior surface (when these labels are missing, the container is no longer GSA qualified, and requires a new inspection.)
The X-10 is the number one choice for securing sensitive Government material, and was designed as a result to the recent revision to the federal specification FF-L-2740, making it the USA’s highest security grade lock for container doors, locks, and “Style One” applications.
The GSA approves the X-10 lock to be used on Class 5 and 6 Filing Cabinets and Class 5 Security Vault Doors. The lock itself is self-powered, Green, and operated through simple dial rotation – as well as housing programming and option controls. All in all, it provides the aspects of a high security electronic lock while preserving the reliability and durability of a mechanical lock’s independence from power sources.
The new X-10s are all backlit with a powerful LCD lock, ideal for when containers are being stored in dim or dark storage rooms. The lock provides options for High Security Code Scrambling and an automatic lock re-set, as well as being resistant to all kinds of external forms of attack or manipulation.
The Sargent & Greenleaf 2740B safe lock is one of the top electromechanical locks in the industry, and is specifically engineered to meet the highest security standards of the US government to protect all classified materials.
With simple installation, a spy-proof dial, one hand operation options, and a tough and durable construction, the 2740B is an excellent choice for all GSA mandated security standards. It offers extreme resistance to even expert manipulation, thermal protection, fast combination changing options, internal, long-lasting batteries, and a stainless steel lock bolt that can resist over 600 pounds of force. It makes an excellent choice for all SCIFs or protected, classified government or military installations.
Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities, as they are known in the security and intelligence community, are secure parts of buildings used to house and process classified information or data that requires handling within formal systems of access control. Some buildings are completely classified as SCIFs, some buildings house separate SCIF area, and SCIFs can be housed in mobile forms as well. All activity and discussion within SCIFs is restricted – so you can see that these areas undergo official scrutiny to be truly secure.
The Director of Central Intelligence Directive 705 sets up Intelligence Community Standard (ICS) 705.1 which fully dictates the specifications of SCIF construction and maintenance. The skilled servicemen at Nonstop are aware of all of the specifics and details of these ordinances, and can provide full service for SCIFs in all branches of federal or military facilities.
