Swedish company SQS Security Qube System AB has developed a range of GRP solutions for the transport of money, weapons and other valuable goods.
The first prototype was unveiled in 1996, and since then an entire product line has been developed, which includes deposit boxes, cases for transporting valuable items, transport boxes for weapons, and security systems for automated teller machines (ATMs). Cases are available in different sizes, starting from 328 mm x 145 mm x 120 mm and weighing 2.9 kg, to very large ones sized at 407 mm x 868 mm x 170 mm, and weighing over 20 kg.
The units consist of an outer shell made of GRP with an embedded ‘electronic shield’ system. Any break in the shield will be detected and trigger a destruction/tracking mechanism in the SQS unit.
SQS Security Qube System uses Reichhold’s resins in the construction of its cases.
