BV-FDC-003-G – Forensic Evidence Drying Cabinet 30″W – Single Door | Standard Height

Managing Forensic Evidence:

Preserving evidence integrity is vital in proving a peron’s guilt or innocence. Lack of evidence security can compromise a case.  Our Safekeeper series of drying and storage cabinets provide a secure, tamper-resistant area for drying and storing clothing, linens, towels or other items collected from crime scenes.

Made of polypropylene, Safekeeper cabinets don’t absorb liquids, is easily cleaned with ordinary detergents, and can be sprayed with 10% bleach solution to eliminate blood-borne pathogens and DNA.

Safekeeper cabinets eliminate potential cross-contamination between items of evidence. Optional evidence collection tray is available to catch trace evidence such as hair or fibers that may fall off the substrate. Otherwise, personnel can use kraft paper sheet placed on cabinet floor.

Optional self-locking evidence security tags provide tamper-resistant “locks” to keep contents secure during drying, maintaining and documenting the chain of custody and reducing defence challenges to evidence handling.

The Safekeeper featurs Air Science Multiplex filtration system  which prevents cross-contamination and fully protects personnel from the hazards associated with the evidence. It also offers the cleanest air available in the industry. Since there is no ANSI standard for forensic drying cabinets,  Safekeeper is designed to meet ANSI ductless fume hood specifications.

The Safekeeper carbon filter provides superior efficiency with an optional safety filter to bring the cabinet into full ANSI compliance

Safekeeper forensic evidence drying cabinets provide cost effective storage and containment for forensic evidence as it is dried by a constant flow of air. Its ductless technology removes airborne pathogens, particulates, fumes, and odours emitted by the contents.
