Where are Extendor Vulcan insurance rated security cages used?

The Extendor Vulcan certified and insurance rated security cage is adapted depending on client requirements and location. The certified security cages create fully secured enclosures but can also be braced against existing walls as security partitions in restricted or shared areas. Vulcan certified cages also protect light-weight partition walls. A multi-purpose certified security cage, the Vulcan is extremely flexible, which is particularly useful when there are challenges during the installation phase e.g. the security cage needs installing around existing client services.

Insurance rated Vulcan security cages serve the primary purpose of protecting high-value items or high-sensitive data, making the secure cages commonplace in the data center or IT sector, used as server security cages. It is possible to install Vulcan security cages outside due to the versatile nature of the secure, certified cages, making them appropriate to most markets that require certified security caging.

Other applications for Vulcan certified security cages include: lobby, reception and entranceway security, laboratory security cages, gas cannister security cages, machine guarding and warehouse security cages, government security cages, retail security cages, pallet cages, pharmaceutical cages and more.

In high-sensitive industries, such as government and finance, and in public services like prisons and police buildings, Vulcan certified security cages are in high demand. The certified security cages are also implemented outside to protect air-conditioning units, harmful chemicals (certified containment cages), and confidential waste facilities.

Extendor Vulcan security cages can be relocated and modified, making the certified security cages advantageous to clients looking for a future-proof solution.

The smallest Extendor Vulcan security cage is 1m x 1m in size, and there are a wide range of other sizes and colours available. The smaller certified security cages are suitable for high-security storage of smaller items, and the storage and protection of servers and personal computer equipment.

The below images show some of the applications of Extendor Vulcan certified security cages. Vulcan security cages guarantee an authentic, market-leading solution that will protect you and your business, perfect for the security of valuables and high-sensitive data.

Vulcan security cages are secure, certified security cages that combine the need for security with the need for aesthetic appeal. Extendor security cages are unrivalled by other products on the market for the level of security offered – no other security cages provide the same quality, unique design, and certified reassurance of high attack resistance. The ventilation offered by Vulcan security cages makes the secure cages a leading product for the security of IT and server equipment.

Clients partnered with Cross-Guard include Amazon, IBM, Equinix, Microsoft and more.

Extendor Vulcan security cages are manufactured to rigorous quality management standards to achieve the LPCB rating, and also the prestige of being classified as anti-theft and anti-terror products, which can be utilised in industries where there are threats to the national critical infrastructure. Replacement of stolen goods and the potential damage to reputation usually far outweighs the cost of good security.

Aside from providing secure enclosures for anything you need to protect, Vulcan security cages can also be used to restrict and prohibit employee access for health and safety reasons. For instance, the certified security cages can be used as security partitions that prevent untrained staff from accessing dangerous areas in factories or from getting too close to dangerous machinery. Vulcan certified security cages are suitable for the storage of gas canisters and other chemicals to prevent outside tampering, and the secure cages can be modified for weather resistance.

Another common requirement for security cages is vandal proofing. Cross-Guard’s Extendor Vulcan certified security cage and other security cages have been used to protect equipment like air-conditioning systems to avoid malicious damage and vandalism. Installing a lockable security cage around air-conditioning units means there’s less risk of the system malfunctioning, or expensive repair costs due to outside tampering.

One question you should ask yourself is how many individuals have access to the high-value or high-sensitive items and data that you’re trying to protect, including employees, visitors, drivers and contractors. If what you’re trying to protect is available in a shared area to individuals who do not need access to the item in question, you are increasing risk of theft unnecessarily. Using a security cage to restrict access to only those who need it is good practice when it comes to the security of your business.

In summary, Extendor Vulcan certified security cages can be applied in a potentially limitless number of ways. Cross-Guard continually receives requests for more bespoke projects where Vulcan security cages are required for protection and security. The company has even received unique requests where security cages are needed to protect expensive sports cars or wildlife viewing platforms.
