mechanical component to open or close the door of a cabinet,equipped on thedoor of the cabinet
device to allow only authorized access to a cabinet,assembled into the handle ofthe cabinet or on the door of the cabinet
mechanical lock
mechanical component assembled in the door of a cabinet that secures the door tothe frame or other structural member of the cabinet and is operated by the handle
multipoint mechanical lock
system of more than one mechanical lock operated by a single handle
access security level
level of security against unauthorized access, determined by the security measuresneeded to obtain access to the cabinet
Note 1 to entry: The access security level of an indoor cabinet depends on the type of installation sile (building)and on the cabinet’s location in the building.
access protection
protection against unauthorized access to a cabinet
security performance
performance of the mechanical components of a cabinet to achieve the intendedprotection against unauthorized access
Note 1 to entry: The mechanical components of the cabinet are shown in Figure 1.
