PCI Compliant Cages

PCI Compliance and Security Caging

Based on Section of the PCI Security Directive, Work in Progress (WIP) Storage Rooms have a minimum security requirement of a Wire Mesh Storage Caging system. These Wire Mesh Caging systems need to either include a ceiling, or extend from floor to deck/roof of the room in order to enclose the entire room on all surfaces. Please see below for additional details regarding this specification: Work in Progress (WIP) Storage Room

(a) This room must be segregated from production and protected at a minimum by wire mesh.

(b) If wire mesh is used in the construction of such areas, it must extend from the floor to enclose the entire room on all surfaces, including a top (if below the ceiling).

(c) Doors to these areas must be contact monitored and fitted with an audible alarm that sounds when the door remains open for more than 60 seconds.

(d) Reinforced exterior walls may be used as part of the perimeter of these areas provided that these walls do not contain any door(s) or window(s).

(e) CCTC surveillance is mandatory and must cover the entire area, ensuring that there are no blind spots.

In regards to section (c) of the above specifications, has capabilities to include electronic access into the door hardware to allow for ease of integration of alarm and security requirements by your security contractor. Visit our page detailing lock options to discover more information on both Electronic Strike and Maglock options.

If your caging system will be most efficient without a ceiling, offers a reinforced, welded wire mesh that is perfect for applications requiring the cage system to run to the roof deck. By securing the system with a series of post extension inserts and wall attachment hardware, we can achieve a rigid, stable system without the inclusion of a ceiling. In addition, if this system will be installed in an area where HVAC, electrical conduit, or any other obstructions may be apparent, our installation crew is able to field modify around these areas to ensure a flush to deck cage installation.
