Wire partitions can be designed to meet DEA specifications. Over the years I've supplied D.E.A approved woven wire partitions to some of the nations largest pharmacuetical companies including Forest Pharmaceutical and KV Pharmaceutical. These companies use these wIre mesh partitions as security cages for storage of controlled substances in their warehouse.
When properly installed our woven wire partitions meet the US Drug Enforcement Administration’s requirements for physical security of Schedule III through V controlled substances as outlined in Title 21 CFR Sections1301:72-1301.76 physical security controls. DEA security cage installations have the following notable features:
Doors must be self closing and self locking. We offer a number of standard and custom lock options to meet this requirement, as well a line of self closing doors with mechanical and powered operators.
Walls constructed of not less than No.10 steel fabric with openings not more than 2-1/2" across the square, mounted on steel posts, set no more than ten feet apart, with horizontal reinforcement. Our standard panels are maximum ten feet long, four or five feet tall, and are made of 2" x 1" opening 10 gauge steel wire. The frames of our panels satisfy the requirement for horizontal reinforcement every sixty inches.
Walls shall be mounted to posts at least one inch diameter, lagged to the floor. Standard posts are 2" square with base plates for floor anchoring welded to each. Lag bolts need to be pinned or brazed once installed.
Shall have a ceiling of same materials, or erected to reach the structural ceiling of the building. Our system uses the same panels in walls and ceilings. Furthermore, our system is so strong panels can be stacked between posts to reach most any building ceiling. D.E.A. regulation does not allow gaps between the enclosure and the building structure. Angle frame panels can be made with cutouts to fit your building structure, or they can be modified in the field by the installer.
Panels mount flush to floor. A simple modification to the hole layout on our stock posts eliminates the sweep space allowing flush to floor mounting of the panels as required for this application.
We offer these features plus years of experience providing approved enclosures to the drug industry. Let us help with your next project. Call 800-763-9020 for a free consultation.
