What are the types of security products?

Here are explanations of some common types of security products, including key cabinets, lockouts, mailboxes, padlocks, and safes, along with considerations for choosing them:

Key Cabinets - These are storage units designed to organise and store keys. They are often used in commercial and institutional settings to manage access to multiple keys. These may be fitted with digital locks, traditional key locks, and combination locks.

Lockouts - Lockout devices are used to control access to machinery or equipment during maintenance or repair to prevent accidental startup or release of hazardous energy. Lockout equipment encompasses lockout/tagout kits, lockout hasps, valve lockouts, electrical lockouts, and circuit breaker lockouts.

Mailboxes - Mailboxes are containers used for receiving and storing mail. In a security context, this may involve secure mailboxes designed to prevent unauthorized access to mail or packages. The most common types include wall-mounted mailboxes, freestanding mailboxes, and secure locking mailboxes.

Padlocks - Padlocks are portable locks typically used to secure gates, doors, lockers, and other items. They come in various sizes and security levels. The most common types are keyed padlocks, combination padlocks, and electronic padlocks.

Safes - Safes are secure storage containers designed to protect valuables, documents, and other important items from theft, fire, or other disasters.
