Colours include charcoal, grey and beige.

SCEC Endorsed Security Containers

We have a number of SCEC-Endorsed containers (safes) available.

“C Class”

At the time of writing (05-10-2013) we had these two C-Class Planex filing cabinets (4-drawer is $720, 3-drawer is $550):

Planex C Class Filing Cabinets

Here are some others that we had earlier this year:

Planex 3dr C-Class (Beige)Planex 3dr C-Class (Grey)

We also had one Lamson C-Class Stationary Cabinet (sold):

Lamson C Class Stationary CabinetLamson C Class Stationary Cabinet (Open)

Here are some other SCEC-endorsed cupboards that we had 17 months ago (2x C and 1x B class):

“B Class”

We have a small number of CHUBB B-Class containers available, similar to these (colours may vary):

Our price is $1500-1800 each ($1800 on the newer models). These are an ideal security solution for businesses, accountants, solicitors, tradespeople,  etc. And also for home!

They  are a very popular product and excellent value too, the older models have been maintained and serviced in government use for up to 5 decades, and if properly maintained will still have decades of use left in them yet! There really is no better value for security than something that will last you a lifetime of usage. Come in store to inspect the quality for yourselves.

We also have the 2-drawer ones for $900 each:

We sometimes get CMI/Planex ones similar to these:

Our price is $1800 each (when available). The price for new CMI 4-drawer B-Class containers is $6200.

Occasionally we get SCEC endorsed Brownbuilt compactuses as well:

Brownbuilt B-Class Compactus

This one sold within a week of setting it up in our store. It’s a 4-bay B-Class Brownbuilt compactus, it was priced at $1800 (just $200 more than we sell a non-security 4-bay compactus).

“A Class”

Finally, we still have our Chubb A Class container available:

Our price on the A Class is $2500. It weighs 800kg, and the rest of the specs are on the datasheet for anyone that’s interested. It contains a 2-drawer filing cabinet. The price for a new CMI “A Class” continer is $7800.

Stock changes rapidly, and our range of SCEC Endorsed products will be different to what is detailed on this page.

We usually see them in Grey or Beige.

At present (28/04/2014) we have 2x units in stock - 6-bay compactus units with 900 x 300mm shelves. Their condition would be described as good to very good. Refer to the picture to the right.  We also have an 8-bay compactus, with  900mm x 400mm shelves,  as well as one other considerably wider 6-bay compactus with 1200mm x 400mm shelves.

They represent a great-value storage solution, whether for business or for home. We can deliver and install the units within the Canberra/Queanbeyan area. Delivery is $80, and delivery + installation starts from $150.

Please contact us  for pricing and availability!
