Choosing the right high security safe
There are differing levels of grades to ensure you have the correct cover and safes are rated for cash with the contents rating for jewellery a multiple of 10, so for example if you were asked by your broker to get a safe to cover you for £350,000 in valuables then you would need a eurograde 3 with a £35,000 cash rating. Products in this category start with grade 2 and go up to grade 7 with some grades providing fire protection as well as security.
We recommend when purchasing this type of product you ensure the size is given due consideration, it is often the case that customers will select a small sized model which allows for a small amount of items but then wish they had gone slightly larger to accommodate extra items that need to also be kept secure. Sometimes it can be beneficial to collect all items to be stored into a box and measure it to see what space you need internally.
Other top tips to help you choose include the number of shelves supplied, these are often handy for helping you to organise the contents to suit your needs and help you make the most of the space available. Some products include a lockable compartment as standard. These are really useful for keeping items separate from the main part of the safe. If you require additional shelves or a locking compartment is not included these can be purchased as an extra.
If you require an electronic lock there is a wide variety of options with differing features that include multiple users, audit trails and time delay, it is not possible to include all this detail on our website so if you have a specific need feel free to speak with us. For the ultimate protection you may wish to consider a lock that connects to your alarm system, in the event of being held up you can enter a duress code which can alert the Police. Another option is to consider a fingerprint lock which uses advanced technology.
Should you plan to situate the safe in a cupboard and you have limited depth some of our ranges can have slimmer handles fitted to ensure you get the largest size possible. If required we can also customise with different paint finishes and a flock lined interior to protect valuables from damage while they are stored.
Our eurograde safes start at a rating of £6,000 cash for overnight storage and go up to £250,0000 in cash, these range from eurograde 0 to eurograde 7. The highest rating is normally used in a commercial environment or for homes that might need a maximum security.
As standard, cash safes and money safes uk come fitted with a high security double bitted key lock, eurograde 4 and above you will find there are two locks fitted so that the safe reaches the correct security level. If you do not want to have a key to keep hold off then most safes will either be listed with an electronic lock as an option or there will be a model listed with a picture showing the electronic keypad on.
We also have different electronic keypads to suit your budget and feature set, for example if you need to remotely connect to the lock via a LAN we can arrange this. In addition if you need just a simple lock with 1-9 users then we can also have this type of lock fitted. If you are a home user and want to connect your safe to your alarm system this can also be arranged, the type of electronic lock you will need must have a duress function to be suitable.
If you have a tight space that you need the safe to fit into please ensure you take into account the handle and external hinges that might be on the safe, on some models the handle can be changed to suit, if this is the case please call one of our friendly sales advisors for more details.
We can install to an upper floor via stairs for an additional cost and this will be dependant on the weight of the safe.Read more Show less
