Where are Extendor Elite security cages used?

Extendor Elite lockable security cages can be used in different ways, depending on the requirements of the client. The security cages can be used to create fully secured enclosures, or the security cages can be braced against existing walls or used as security partitions in shared or restricted areas. Elite cages can also be used to protect light-weight partition walls – the security cages are multi-purpose and extremely flexible. The flexibility of Elite security cages is especially useful within environments where there are installation challenges, and a lockable cage must be installed around ie. existing overhead services.

Installed to protect high-value or high-sensitive items, Elite security cages are most used for data center security as data center security cages. However, the versatile nature of the security cages and the ability to install the cages outside, makes them appeal to most markets requiring security caging. Other applications include: gas security cages, lobby, reception and entranceway security partitions, laboratory security cages, warehouse security cages and machine guarding, retail security cages, government security cages, lockable pallet cages, pharmaceutical cages, and many more.

Elite security cages, and Extendor security cages in general, are in demand in high-sensitive industries, including government, finance, and public services such as prisons and police buildings. These lockable security cages can also be used outdoors to protect air-conditioning units, chemicals (containment cages), and confidential waste disposal facilities.

The modular nature of Extendor Elite security cages means the lockable security cages can also be relocated, making them an excellent choice for clients who require a future-proof solution. Elite lockable cages are available in a wide range of sizes and colours to suit with the smallest cage currently offered being 1m x 1m in size.

As an anti-theft and anti-terror solution, Extendor Elite security cages are manufactured to rigorous quality management standards. The cost of replacing stolen goods or information, and the potential fines and reputational damage involved, often far outweigh the cost for good security.

In addition to Elite security cages providing valuable secure enclosures for anything you need to protect, the secure cages can also be used to restrict access for the protection of staff and as part of a health and safety measurement. For example, security cages can be adapted to security partitions to prevent untrained personnel in factories coming into contact with dangerous machinery. Lockable security cages can also be used for storage of dangerous gas cannisters and chemicals, preventing misuse and outside tampering. Extendor Elite cages can be adapted for weather resistance and outside usage.

Vandal proofing is another common reason for requiring security cages. Cross-Guard’s Extendor Elite and other cages have previously been used to protect equipment such as air-conditioning units from vandalism and malicious damage. Implementing a lockable security cage around such machinery ensures systems run smoothly and there are no glitches or repair costs due to outside tampering.

It’s important to consider to volume of people with access to the expensive items or high-value information that you’re trying to protect, from employees, through to visitors, contractors and drivers. Restricting access through use of a security cage to only those who require it is good practice and involves substantially less risk.

In conclusion, Extendor Elite security cages have a potentially limitless number of applications. Cross-Guard is continually receiving requests for bespoke or unique projects where lockable security cages are required for security and protection. The company has even had a request for a high-strength lockable security cage to protect a high-value sports car.
