The LB1000 Series are horizontal lock boxes designed to provide high security protection for top or front loading VCRs. These lock boxes maintain security integrity for all tape recordings by means of a metallic front panel with tamper-resistant lock. The smoked acrylic window in the front panel allows complete viewing and monitoring of the unit during recording and operation. Front loading VCRs can be easily accessed by unlocking the forward opening front panel. The gas strut hinged lid provides convenient access to all top loading VCRs. Added features such as vented side panels and a continuous duty fan assembly help maintain an ambient operating temperature in all AC models.
