A Guide to Key Cabinets- Why are they so important in the workplace?

Keys are an important tool in every business. They help to safeguard our assets to provide maximum protection to our business overall.

Keys are crucial. Crucial for protecting our homes and our businesses from the risks of unauthorised access, but they’re also crucial for protecting important valuables within these properties. So, it should be a priority that these keys we rely on so much to protect our valued goods, are protected themselves.

With more businesses being vacated due to COVID-19 and lockdown restrictions, there is more opportunity for thieves to strike. The solution?

Well, Key Cabinets and Key Safes are effective security solutions that take up little space but provide a secure storage location and peace of mind.

Not only can they be used in our homes, but they can be used in environments which require regular distribution of keys, including hotels or garages.

It is extremely important to keep keys safe and secure from any unwanted personnel. If thieves can get hold of your keys, your business and your business's assets will be at risk.

Not only do they provide protection from theft, but key safes will help keep your keys organised.  enabling businesses to easily distribute them when needed.

Still unsure what you need?  Here at Total Safes, we offer a wide range of key cabinets to suit all different environments. We have key cabinets and key safes that range in size, depth and can either be wall-mounted or free-standing.
