Cash Transfer (Electric)

Bulk- Large Item Transfer

Architectural Armour can offer our standard Electric BTU for the safe transfer of Cash In Transfer and larger items between the secure and non secure areas of a work environment.  Secure Transfer Units are an essential part of any security system and with the interlocked doors make transaction quick and easy whilst maintaining operational security; the addition of indicator lights allows staff to manage cash transfer easier.

The Electric Bulk Transfer Unit can also be supplied with our without adjustable legs.  The legs allow for the unit to be freestanding and adjusted to the correct operating height dependent on the scenario. 

Alternatively the unit can be installed into a wall, below a working counter.  In this situation the legs are not required and a wall aperture of 390mm x 485mm is recommended. 

When installed into cash offices it is often paired with security screens and counters or our Cash Transaction Windows to give staff vision to the secure side, as well as additional serving space.

Available in right handed and left handed versions the BTU is ideally manufactured to suit all customers needs.

The standard unit has internal dimensions of 275mm x 390mm wide.  A depth of 510mm allows transfer of bulkier items.


If this unit is not feasible for your application we are able to manufacture bespoke units to suit your requirements.  Please see below images of a large unit we manufactured bespoke for a recent customer in the jewellery industry.
