Utilities Department Look To Nexgen XT Padlocks For Accountability

Posted on Monday, March 26, 2012

After receiving reports of unsecure gates at remote water treatment plants throughout the city, this Southeastern Utilities Department quickly discovered that padlocks were being left unlocked by the employees. To address the security concern, the department installed 30 Nexgen XT small format interchangeable cores into the existing padlocks which provided the necessary accountability and control. After trying the padlocks, the utilities department then expanded their system to accommodate additional facilities.
