Austin Hardware & Supply, Inc. develops LifeDefender cabinet security frame systems


Austin Hardware & Supply, Inc. (Lee's Summit, Missouri) developed a line of cabinet security frames called LifeDefender. The frames are designed to comply with SAE J3058, CAAS, GVS V.1.0, and NFPA 1917 safety standards for the use in ambulances, but can be used in any vehicular application in which interior cabinets need to be securely latched while in motion, protect cabinet contents in the event of a crash, and offer easy access for stocking and restocking.

LifeDefender frames are an economical alternative to self-building interior cabinets and are available in fixed, restocking, and unframed styles. While each LifeDefender unit is custom-built to the size specifications of the customer, new orders can be turned around in a matter of days.
