Overview of Carl Wall-Mounted & Portable Locking Key Cabinets

Locking Key CabinetsIf you’re like me, without the proper organizational tools things can quickly end up in a mess. This is especially the case with keys. If I don’t have my keys on a key ring and literally in my pocket at all times, they seem to pick themselves up and walk off.  When handling dozens of keys, something designed with organization in mind should really be used. A #10 aluminum can or a desk drawer simply isn’t going to cut it. What you should be using is a locking key cabinet (found here).

There are several reasons why you may want a locking key cabinet. If you’re a car dealership, a janitorial company, a hotel lobby or any other business that handles and organizes keys on a regular basis, you probably don’t want to keep those keys out in the open. A freely accessible key can easily be stolen and can ultimately result in lost money, property, identification or worse. If you handle building keys, car keys, room keys or other large quantities of keys, you should be using a secure locking key cabinet.

At ABC Office we currently offer three different wall-mounted locking key cabinets made by Carl Manufacturing. These cabinets come in 32, 48 and 64 key configurations. These cabinets feature key hangers on the inside of the cabinet and on the inside of the cabinet door. The door closes on the cabinet, creating a compact and rather nice looking key cabinet. When the cabinet door is shut, it can be locked for added security. The smart key lock comes with 2 keys.

When closed and locked, these key cabinets look great. They can be mounted to the wall for added security, but don’t have to be. If you prefer to keep them in a drawer or in another cabinet, you can. It includes a handle for convenient off-site key organization like you might find on a construction site.

While these cabinets lock securely and prevent access to their key contents, they also make organization extremely easy. Unlike many comparable brands and models out there, our Carl line of key cabinets includes color key tags and color key hangers, making it easy to sort, organize and access the keys. This is a great system.

As mentioned earlier, we offer three different locking key cabinets. These are the CKB-32 (found here), CKB-48 (found here) and the CKB-64 (found here). While Carl is better known for their lineup of specialized office equipment, they have a great reputation for building great products. They also manufacture a great lineup of security boxes (found here).

As is the case with any of our products, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-658-8788. We love to answer questions and are more than happy to provide you with quotes and additional information.
