Millium DTM


In 2003, Fichet-Bauche installed its Millium
DTM closed system for depositing and
transferring day’s takings and till contents at
35 McDonald’s restaurants in France. The
system will markedly improve the security of
the personnel, while also improving cash-in-
transit efficiency. Cash-in-transit companies
can now collect the day’s takings and leave
a change till at any time of the day or night
as the transfer unit is accessed from outside
the restaurant.

D: DEPOSIT. The personnel deposit cash safely
through an opening in the top of the deposit unit.
The envelope with the cash cannot be removed
once it has been dropped into the unit. The money
falls through an opening into the transit safe.                                       2. The envelope falls into the transit safe,

                   Gunnebo Steelage conducts its business
                   through three business areas:

                   This business area currently accounts for
                   more than 50 per cent of Gunnebo
                   Steelage’s turnover, mainly through its pro-
                   duction of high-graded, fire- and burglar-
                   resistant safes. With some 30 per cent of
