Safety Wall Cabinet for tools

Alvaro Service Manager Aruba Posted   Latest  

Hi Friends. Few days ago, there was a break in at the company. Couple vehicles broken into in the parking lot. No damage inside. But I went to search for a strong good lockable wall cabinet, to store my scanners and laptops. Will reinforce Door and window at office as well. But I did not find any good cabinet. I would like some sturdy lockable thing, with good metal thickness and good doors, hinges and locks. I found most cabinets of thin sheet metal which can be opened/damaged with a small pry bar. Do you know where to look for this? Thank you all in advance.

If I recall Grainger has some freestanding heavy industrial cabinets, not sure about wall cabinets though. The freestanding ones are big and heavy with a spot for a padlock. They are a bit spendy though. Also keep in mind that no matter how good the metal cabinet is, if you leave the torches out you are not secure. A reasonable alternative might be a gun safe.

Good Morning. Thank You. Will check your Suggestion. We do not have torches readily available at the shop. We are the local LPG distributor. So, all the things which produce flame and sparks are keep secure very well. :-)

i agree a gun safe is a good suggestion. Make sure you keep desiccant in there for moisture. I don’t understand why more businesses don’t have alarm systems. A couple of hundred dollars a year for 24 hours a day monitoring for fire and break in is pretty reasonable.

Good Morning Mr. Mike. We are the local LPG distributor. Main building and offices does have all alarms in place. Security on premises 24/7. But our shop is far from main building. Close to the Tank Parks. A homeless break a car to stole the battery to sell for drugs. Guard was on round around the facility, and this was very fast. All recorded in video. But I want to be in the safe side. I want…

Good Morning dear Friends. Thank You All for your suggestions. I think I will fabricate myself such cabinet. I searched all the options, emailed a couple stores, but they do not have the one I wish. The gun safes also are good, but not the size and the purpose I need. I carry a bag with 2 laptops, my VCM's, Mongooses's and other things. I would like to store the whole bag in the cabinet attached…
