How secure is Fort Knox?
The Locking system
On move in day, customers are given a new ABLE padlock with three keys. You are the only one with the keys to the lock on your unit, so you control who has access. Most unit doors are fitted with our unique fortress locking system*; the shackle and the padlock body is securely enclosed in steel. The padlocks that we provide are also built with extra security features like anti-pick tumblers and double locking, stainless steel springs.
We don’t have people hanging around our sites at 3am. Our site access is set within specific customer hours, 365 days a year. This allows practical access to your unit and makes it possible for us to provide a higher level of security and monitoring over our facilities. If anyone tries to enter the premises outside of the access hours a loud alarm sounds, our security team is dispatched, and everything is recorded over a live video feed.
Each customer has a unique PIN which opens the security gates and is linked to a door alarm on their storage unit*. When you enter your pin at the entry gate the door alarm in your storage unit is switched off. When you re-enter your PIN to leave the facility your door alarm is re-activated. If anyone attempts to enter a unit without using the pin a loud alarm sounds and the security team is immediately alerted.
We have 24 hour back to base cameras and movement sensors that monitor activity at each of our sites during and after hours. Staff on duty monitor movement around the site via a live video feed during the day. Our self storage sites also have smoke alarms that are linked directly to the fire brigade and will automatically send a fire truck to the site if any smoke is detected.

Our units are fully self-contained and individually alarmed. Only you have the keys to the lock.
