What a mess!
Happend over the weekend, 11 netbooks stolen.
I consider these cabinets to be some of the most secure I've ever come across, and it still wasn't a match for a crowbar.

Ouch, I've seen a cabinet exactly the same broken into in one of my sites - the thieving gits got away with 13 laptops in my case. Will insurance cover it?

some people covered with insurance? and was anything else taken, if not they must of known what they were looking for and probably where they were going....

It's a shame that regardless of the security of the cabinates you use, all it takes is a thief with the right tools, enough time and brute force to achieve their aims
Is that dusting powder on the case?

Yes the police were in this morning dusting the room for prints, not sure if they found anything of use. They chose the worst room if they wanted things of value, as they were only Stone netbooks in the cabinet worth less than £200 each to replace, and they didn't get the power packs either. In fact I'm more annoyed about the damaged cabinet which is beyond repair as it's all warped out of shape now, that's about £2000 to replace on its own.

Are you in a secondary school....we had a case not so much similar but might be worth looking in this direction, we have some "questionable" pupils who have "questionable" lifestyles and familys, one of which had there phone confiscated during the day, that night someone broke into the school compound, smashed the double glazed office window and stole the afore mentioned phone, nothing else just that one phone...when the police checked the prints they found...low and behold it was "qustionable" students older brother who had a criminal record for breaking and entering

Is it worth replacing if it's that easy to peel apart?

Well we've got to replace it with something, and as I say they're still the strongest cabinets I've ever seen. We had a lapsafe one broken into at one of the schools I worked at, and that was a lot easier to get into than this one appears to have been.

if they want to break in, they will, no matter how much protection you put up. trust me, i worked at a school where over 6 years we had about £250,000 worth of IT equipment stolen. ranging from cameras during the day to 80 laptops from our office in a blanket down from a roof and left in a garden to come and collect, to using a trolly jack to pry open the metal bars on the window to kicking in a miniscule window on a roof and getting a young child (or very VERY small adult) to go in and pass laptops up.

I presume the insurance will pay out as they were secured.

That's up to the business manager to decide, out of my hands. They've never bothered claiming for losses under £5000 before, as it generates so much paperwork, it's actually not economic to do it and in the grand scheme of things ammounts under that are not really significant sums of money. I'll probably get told to just order some replacements.

Not good... This trolley looks the same one we have has well

It's a loxit lapbank trolly. I e-mailed a picture of it to their design team this afternoon showing how it had been broken into - they were quite surprised I think.

Same trolleys we have here as well, to be honest I've always thought the doors on them seemed a bit wobbly/flimsy.....

The side doors seem flimsy but the laptop compartment ones are ok - or not
