DEA compliant storage cages

DEA compliant pharmacy drug storage cagesA pharmacy was in need of DEA compliant pharmacy drug storage cages for storing their pharmaceuticals. They decided to call Wirecrafters®, a leader in the wire partition industry, for their pharmaceutical wire partitions. 

The pharmacy's pharmaceutical drugs by law must be secured in a wire partition cage that is compliant with the Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA) rigorous standards. The DEA compliant pharmacy drug storage cages and wire partitions meet the US DEA's requirements for physical security of Schedule III through V class controlled substances as outlined in Title 21, CFR Sections 1301.72-1301.76 physical security controls. The drug storage application of the pharmaceutical wire partitions is ideal for applications in pharmacies, pharmaceutical companies, medical facilities, drug distribution centers, record storage areas. drug warehouses, and more.

what makes the cages DEA compliant

The DEA compliant pharmacy drug storage cages have several important requirements that make them different from typical tool and maintenance storage cages. All doors must be self-closing and self-locking. Hinged doors are outfitted with hydraulic door closers. Standard Wirecrafters mortise locks meet the DEA's requirements. Sliding doors up to 80 square feet in size are balanced with counterweights for easy operation. The sliding doors are pulled open and the counterweights bring the door back to the closed and locked position automatically. Electric door openers that feature a timer and electric eye for safety are available for sliding doors over 80 square feet.pharmaceutical wire partitions for DEA compliant drug storage cages

In the DEA compliant pharmacy drug storage cages, the pharmaceutical wire partitions are mounted flush to the floor. Only the doors are allowed a small clearance from the floor to allow them to operate freely. Wire cages must be constructed with wire mesh ceiling panels or the cage must go all the way up to the existing roof structure. Both of these options can be done with standard pharmaceutical wire partitions from Wirecrafters. All hardware must also be brazed or pinned according to the DEA so the cage cannot be disassembled.

Wirecrafters pharmaceutical wire partitions is the best choice for a DEA approved application. The tubular post uprights have a welded base plate rather than a floor socket and are pre-drilled so the panels mount flush to the floor. All of the installation and assembly hardware is already on the inside of the cage, making it secure and inaccessible from the outside. The cage was equipped with a wire mesh ceiling with a self-closing and self-locking hinged doors.
