HBNDC002 Controlled Drugs Cabinet

Controlled Drugs Cabinet Designed to be Compliant with Health Building Note 14-02 – Medicines storage in clinical areas.

This HBNDC002 controlled drugs cabinet is based on one of the most popular cabinets we sell. Its small size offers a reasonable amount of storage in a small package.

PLEASE NOTE; our standard CD cabinets are more than compliant for the storage of controlled drugs. The HBN range of cabinets offer additional security above and beyond what it required for “Misuse of Drugs (Safe Custody) Regulations 1973”.

At Pharmacy Medical we manufacture this HBNDC002 Controlled Drugs cabinet in our own factory here in the UK. The cabinet itself is designed to conform to BS2881:1989 (Security Level Two). This is the specification for Cupboards for the Storage of Medicines in Health Care Premises as specified in HBN14-02. Furthermore, meets or surpasses the requirements of the “Misuse of Drugs (Safe Custody) Regulations 1973”. This is the requirement in the UK for the storage of controlled drugs. In addition, the design and construction of this cabinet is intended to make it compliant with Health Building Note 14-02 – Medicines storage in clinical areas.
We have designed this cabinet specifically to store Controlled Drugs. The cabinet is constructed from at least 3.0mm thick steel.
All Controlled Drugs Cabinet prices include the necessary fixings and delivery to mainland UK.
The design of our controlled drugs cabinets also sets us apart from our competitors. We use piano hinges to hold the doors in place. As a result, we increase the access size into the cabinet. Most of all this enables you to make better use of the internal space. The piano hinge is also stronger than other hinging methods, adding further to the security level offered by our cabinets.

This design builds on our template of a quality product. The new and improved design has allowed for us to reduce the returns around the front of the cabinet further improving the opening aperture allowing for better than ever access into the cabinet itself.

As part of our path to making these controlled drugs cabinets compliant with HBN14-02, we have made some changes over out standard cabinets. Increased thickness steel ensures they will withstand increased attack criteria, double skinned walls and doors create a smooth internal skin to the cabinets, and the uprated locks on the RKL models add another level of security.
