Wire partitions and cages provide some of the best ways to secure and protect merchandise in a storage environment. However, with our many lock types and combinations available, you will have the system that works best for what you want to do.
Key Lock Front with a Recessed Thumb Turn Knob Back
The standard lock for wire cages and partitions contains a keyhole on the front and a manual recessed Thumb-Turn Latch on the back. This allows a person to open the lock from inside the cage or door. The holes between the wire are not large enough to fit a hand through so there is no worry about someone using this inner lock to break in.
The standard lock is an excellent choice if personnel is regularly entering the caged-off area because no one wants to be trapped inside a storage area. Also, the use of a key lock is ideal for a company who is trying to limit who has access to a specific area.
