Bankers Cash Safe Mark 8
The Bankers Cash Mark 8 represents an improved concept of the massive maximum-security safe incorporating thermic lance deterrent devices and a new highly sophisticated body construction. The overall design and construction is immensely powerful. Special materials employed in the body and door linings resist the scientific methods of attack which criminals can be expected to use with increasing frequency over the remaining years of this century. New techniques of cold forming and welding give unrivalled overall strength against force of all kinds. The body of the Mark 8 incorporates an entirely new system of reinforced protection. Advanced design skill has also gone into the vital control mechanisms. The locks, which can be of key or combination type, are of the latest bank treasury grade and the precision-engineered boltwork incorporates devices automatically resisting attack by explosives and other means. The styling of the Mark 8 is simple, yet impressively dignified. Its massive strength speaks for itself. It is made in five sizes with weights ranging from about 1 to 3 1/2 tons. In all, this remarkable safe represents a major advance in security engineering.
The body thickness, including the back, is a constant 4 1/2" strongly reinforced at connecting areas.
The construction employs the latest cold forming techniques coupled with advanced welding methods to form a jointless outer shell of tough steel plate. The inner body is similarly joined to the outer shell in such a way that the joint is as strong as the parent metal.
The body which contains over 1 3/8" of metal is constructed from a series of interlocking structures which resists delamination techniques.
The construction consists of a tough outer steel plate, behind which is a reinforced drill and torch resistant monolith approximately 3" thick connected to the alloy protection metal via a mattress of heavy reinforcing bars which are interwoven at the corners for additional strength.
With the exception of the size 43/3420 the centres are removable to facilitate installation. Removable carriages can also be provided against special order to assist the installation of safes through strongroom doors.
The door has an overall thickness of 7" with not less than 4 1/4" of protection over the locks and vital boltwork. A total of over 3 1/4" of special alloy, metal carbides. tough steel, and compound metal plates gives extreme resistance to drills, all forms of oxygen cutting, impact, and other forms of attack.
A unique feature is the method by which the main protective material is securely attached to the front and rear structural plates of the door assembly.
The door swings easily on self-lubricating bearings in modern style carriages.
THERMIC LANCE ATTACK
Devices are incorporated in the safe to deter this form of attack.
LOCK AND BOLTWORK
The door is secured with 1 1/2" diameter bright drawn steel bolts locking behind a solid steel rebate, which is an integral part of the inner body of the safe.
The rear edge of the door is secured by a solid steel continuous bar locking behind a similar rebate.
The door is secured by two John Tann bank treasury grade 10 lever high security keylocks, complete with stainless steel detachable bitted keys in duplicate. The precision engineered boltwork incorporates special devices designed to give protection by re-locking the boltwork mechanism in the event of attacks which produce heat, displaces the lock or attempts to cut a hole in the door.
ALTERNATIVE LOCKING ARRANGEMENTS
The safe may be controlled by twin 10 lever keylocks or by four twin wheel combination locks, or by one combination and one key lock.
Two movement timelocks can be supplied to act in conjunction with any locking arrangement.
FURNITURE FITTINGS AND FINISH
Stainless steel pull handle and brackets. Matching satin finish chrome escutcheons, bolt throwing handle and blinder shield if fitted.
Two-tone modern finish in mid and dark grey gives a style as modern as it is dignified. A wide range of fittings including drawers, cupboards and adjustable shelves is available.
A wide variety of interior fittings is available so that the full use can be made of the capacity of the safe. These fittings include: Full width shelves (adjustable). Single drawer, on sizes 43/3420, 60/5121 and 60/5142. Double drawers side by side on all safes. All shelves and drawers are adjustable in the height at 1 1/2" pitch. Cupboard fitted at top. These cupboards can if required be secured by two locks.
