The Association of Insurance Surveyors or AiS are the organisation in the UK who manage the approval of safes and other related security products such as fire doors within the insurance industry. Their primary role is to improve standards of protection against risk and products covered by their accreditation will have higher standards of security than those otherwise not covered.
Recently we have increasingly found that customers are being contacted by their insurance company to inform them that they should be increasing their protection and purchasing an insurance approved safe. If you have had such a call, we would recommend that you purchase an AiS Approved safe and that you choose a product that is rated specifically for your personal needs.
Simply Safes have an extensive range of AiS Approved safes and can arrange installation if required. These include well respected brands such as Burton, Chubbsafes, Securikey and more. When browsing through our website have a look for the AiS Approved badge. Should you require any assistance in this area, our staff are always on hand to guide you through this process and ensure the safe you purchase is suited to your specific needs.
You may notice when checking our website that non AiS Approved safes are cheaper. This means they have not been subjected to the same rigorous testing than that of an AiS Approved safe and you should always check with your insurance provider before purchasing a safe to ensure that you are covered should the worst happen.
