DC 11580A 1This custom Level 4 SEAL enclosure was developed for a medical research facility. Subject to healthcare privacy regulations, the customer required an access control option that was more secure than a standard handle; however, wanted the convenience of having to use an access card only one time to open the front and rear door. Great Lakes customized an 84"H x 30"W x 42"D NEMA 12K enclosure to include a NEMA rated intelligent handle on the front door. A standard NEMA 12 swing handle compresses the rear door to the enclosure, but an internal locking rotary latch--similar to that found on a car trunk--restricts opening the door from outside the enclosure. An individual with front access is able to pull the rear door release lever found at the front of the enclosure (see a demonstration of door function: https://youtu.be/mXVSBc4Jk-0). A provision was made on the front door to accept the customer's proprietary card reader that integrates into their existing security system.
