In 1997, Larsen's was proud to present the industry with a truly innovative and contemporary approach to the option of equipping a cabinet door with a cylinder lock. The LARSEN-LOC®was the first system to provide the protection of a locked cabinet without requiring the breaking of glass to gain access to the fire extinguisher or other life safety contents. By specifying the LARSEN-LOC®, access to a locked cabinet became totally independent of the desired door style and glazing. Cabinet access for the first time no longer required destruction of the glazing.
Since there is no glass to break, the specification of LARSEN-LOC®has quickly replaced the traditional "Break Glass" door description. This steel cam lock-based design clearly has created a new industry standard. During an emergency, it permits opening of the cabinet door by pulling sharply on the handle. Yet the LARSEN-LOC®also is secure enough to deter the vandalism typically associated with standard pull handles. To specify a built-in cylinder lock system that genuinely optimizes protection and safety, designate the LARSEN-LOC®in combination with any desired door style and glazing option (see below for the options.) The Solid Door with LARSEN-LOC®also can be specified as an Institutional Door(emergency access only with a key) by deleting the pull handle and decal.
