Eastbourne, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 29, 2009 -- Mesan, the manufacturer of enclosure and cabinet fixtures, has launched fourteen new ranges of high security swing handles and multi-point locks. At the heart of the products is a lock manufactured by Camlock Systems that features a patented mechanism designed to prevent unauthorized duplicate keys being cut in key cutting outlets.
Mesan believes that it is the first manufacturer to offer high security ranges of enclosure, cabinet and panel fittings. The move is in response to users becoming concerned that the relatively low security lock types sold by nearly all OEMs offer insufficient protection for many indoor and outdoor applications such as 19" rack server cabinets, telecommunications centre enclosures, high value electronics enclosures, highway control cabinets and high value tool cabinets.
The new ranges come in industry-standard body and mounting hole sizes. This makes it easy to upgrade existing applications and requires minimal changes to drawings and specifications. Low profile closures are available, together with both cylindrical and Euro profile locks. Weather resistance to IP65 standard is provided on all the ranges. There is a very wide choice of materials and finishes.
The new high security locks have excellent resistance to picking and an anti-drill centre for added security. The mechanism offers over 500,000 different key combinations, allowing unique combinations on batches of keyed alike locks. The all-brass lock construction and polished chrome finish provide superb durability.
Tony Dent, Sales Director of Camlock Systems Ltd, says: "These new products combine Mesan's manufacturing excellence with Camlock's security expertise and represent a breakthrough in the industry. What's more, the much greater security comes at marginal additional cost for the OEM."
