Kaba Mas, High-Security Combination Locks
Kaba Mas has been a trusted partner to the United States Government since the X-0 Series was first introduced in 1992. Kaba Mas High Security combination locks used on GSA approved security containers and CDX Series pedestrian door locks used on doors to secure rooms and Secure Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIFs) have been preferred by US Government agencies and Government contractors.
The Kaba Mas X-0 Series is the trusted choice for securing the US Government's most sensitive material. The X-0 series was first introduced in 1992 as the only lock to meet the strict requirements of Federal Specification FF-L-2740. This specification is the US Government's highest security standard for electro-mechanical locks. The X-10 represents the latest edition to this secure tradition. The X-10 is the GSA (General Services Administration) approved lock for FF-L-2740, latest revision B, Style 1 applications. The X-10 is approved by the GSA for use on approved Class 5 and 6 filing cabinets and Class 5 Security vault doors.
The Kaba Mas CDX-10 consists of an X-10 high security style 1 lock, Federal Specification FF-L-270B, mounted on a deadbolt base plate. The base plate is surface-mounted to the inside face of the door. The deadbolt base plate has two essential features. First, it provides a means of latching the bolt in the retracted position. This prevents the bolt from being inadvertently extended. Second, turning the knob on the base plate will retract the bolt to allow egress. The CDX-10 has been approved by the General Services Administration (GSA) meeting the requirements of Federal Specification FF-L-2890C, Type VI.
