We have sold many hundreds of drug safes in Brisbane and Qld over the years. Small drug safes, large drug safes, custom made drug safes. Qld has one of the toughest specifications for the storage of dangerous drugs in Australia. Alas I have seen many drug cabinets that have been condemned by Qld Health Inspectors. Over the last 15 years there is a trend away from small dangerous drug safes. The list of dangerous drugs that the Queensland Health Department demand are locked away (safely) is getting larger. The small drug safe is less popular because “patch technology” makes for larger boxes.
We have 2 small drug safes in stock, the DS1 and the DS0. They measure 450 x 300 x 200 mm (height x width x depth) and 350 x 350 x 200. Both these safes are made from 10mm mild steel. They both have the correct lock and adjustable shelves. There is of course a minimum cost to build anything and these safes whilst small aren’t that much cheaper than the DS2.This safe seems to be the industry standard and measures 600 x 450 x 180 H W D. The Ds1 sells for $740 and the Ds0 sells for $680. Delivery and installation is additional and dependant upon where you are locating it. Additionally the wall or floor construction affect how the safe is to be installed.
Its worth noting that many Chemists, Vets etc have walls that are made from plasterboard or Gyprock. Whist possible it is trickier to secure to than a concrete wall. However for optimum security I suggest securing it to both the wall & the floor. We have had discussions with Qld Health over a stand for a drug safe and whilst it is possible to make a stand that Qld Health approve, it there are a few hoops to jump through.
