Every detail of government building / office security is defined by multiple specifications. When you are gearing-up to build, lease, decorate,or upgrade a government building it is critical that you either come in and talk to an expert or take time to weed through the dozens of specifications.
Many security product vendors have specialized in manufacturing products that stand up to government standards. Here is an example of the government specifications for filing cabinets:
CLASS 6 SECURITY FILING CABINETS
CLASS 6 LEGAL AND LETTER-SIZE SECURITY FILING CABINETS
Class 6 Legal and Letter Size Security Filing Cabinets are GSA-approved under Federal Spec AA-F-358
Affords protection for:
30 man-minutes against covert entry
20 man-hours against surreptitious entry
No forced entry requirements
Class 6 containers are typically used for the storage of secret, top secret, and confidential information.
Class 6 Legal and Letter Size cabinets are equipped with an X-09 lock meeting Federal Specification
Short depth: The short depth container is approved for safeguarding classified material and is specifically designed and constructed for use in mobile or transportable tactical assemblages-(the one drawer short depth is the only GSA approved container available with mounting holes pre-drilled in the bottom).
Short depth Cabinets are equipped with locks meeting Federal Specification FF-L-2740
Field safes are approved for safeguarding classified material and are specifically designed and
constructed for use in military units in the field.
Carrying handles, hinged front and rear, raise to a 90° angle for easy handling.
Available with single lock or dual lock.
You can see from this specification that these filing cabinets are also safes. This is not a typical office filing cabinet and it is important that you purchase the cabinet that precisely fulfills the details of the governing specification. These specifications extend to almost every aspect of building construction and approved office hardware.
