|GSA Class 6 Containers:
6 containers are
typically used for storage of classified information such as documents,
maps, drawings, and plans. They are available in file cabinet
well as map and plan styles."
Please Note: Unless you have a specific requirement to the contrary,
under most circumstances, Class 5 security is not required
storage of classified materials.
Top Secret (T.S.) Compliance
All Class 6 Containers with the exception of the Field Safe (not
pictured) are required to be equipped with FF-L-2740A approved
Group One Digital Locks, These locks are user configurable for
multi-combination access and are approved through Top Secret (TS.) For
TS use the Field Safe may be ordered with dual mechanical locks.
There are two
different types of Class 6 containers
which are commonly available:
1. Class 6 filing cabinets, available in one, two, four and five
configurations. Two, Four and Five Drawer Containers are available in
Single (SL) or Multi-Lock (ML) configurations (one lock per drawer.)
Most are available in Legal, the most common, and also letter size
2. Class 6 Map Plan Containers, available empty, or fitted with a
variety of inserts to accommodate filing drawers, shelves, or map/plan
carts. The latter can be used store large paper documents flat, with
rolling or folding.

If you determine
you have a requirement for a Class 6
container, please note that though these units are not as heavy as the
Class 5 containers, the remain quite heavy. Consideration must
given to placement and installation access, as well as the
of the floor structure of your building, or ship, to support one, or
more, containers. When ordering, you must be specific as to exactly
where the container is to be placed, with regard to elevators, stairs,
etc, as well as the unloading facilities, i.e. docks, forklifts,
at your location. If special delivery services are required,
available in your area, these plans must be made at the time
order is placed.
If you are ordering a Class 6 filing cabinet, once you decide on the container type there are only
two options to consider. The first is color. All of
containers are available in Gray, Black or Parchment. Woodgrain is available on special order only. Grey is the most
common color, and normally is more readily available from stock.
It is not possible to upgrade a single lock (SL) container to a
multi-lock (ML) container. In a multi-lock container, each drawer is
partitioned by a factory installed baffle to prevent access from one
drawer compartment to another. This baffle is required and can not be added without
voiding the GSA Certification of the container.
For Map Plan containers there are a number of options to consider. As
pictured to the right, there are several possible configurations of
shelves and drawer inserts available. These are installed
individually and may be fitted in any configuration which can be
physically accommodated. Additionally, a map/plan cart is available
which allows flat documents to be draped, unfolded, across a removable
cart. This makes storage and handling of these types of documents very
convenient in an easy to access manner.
Wheeled Caster Base Units and Bolt Down Kits
Wheeled Caster Base Units are available for all of our
containers. It is not permissable to weld to, or drill into, a GSA
Approved Container without voiding the GSA Certification. So, we offer
a complete selection of Bolt Down Kits if added security is required.
