Security safes are usually made of steel as it is the most robust material which provides the best security. A lot of steel safes are also resistant to fire and can be waterproof which becomes highly significant in cases of fire or flooding. Security safes come in a great choice of sizes – from small home safes for keeping jewellery to large office safes capable of holding numerous files and documents. Small safes are most commonly mounted in walls or floors as it provides them from being removed from the premises. Larger safes that are used in offices are often mounted to the floor. Most security safes come fitted with electronic locks supported by override keys which can be used in case of emergency to quickly open the safe and remove its contents.

One thing which is worth looking at when deciding to buy any type of safe is fire resistance – depending on the model, safes can provide fire resistance from 30 minutes up to several hours. It might be especially important if you are getting a safe in order to store important documents, files or digital memory carriers. You should know that not all security safes are fire resistant and you need to check if the safe you choose to purchase is actually fire resistant.

Deciding on where you’re going to keep the security safe is extremely important. It is vital that the security safe is kept out of sight at all times. Many people install a wall safe and use a painting or picture to cover it up but burglars are now well aware of this and often this is the first thing they will check. If you decide on installing a wall safe placing something heavier in front of it such as a bookcase for example would be a better choice. First of all it’s more difficult to move and thieves don’t have that time. Second of all, moving something heavy like a bookcase would mean a lot more noise, which would draw attention to them. Installing an under floor safe is also an excellent choice for concealment, they are more difficult to remove, plus a vast amount of furniture can be placed over the area for extra security.

• Home Safes – these are usually small size safes that can be wall or floor mounted. Their size is suitable for storing cash, jewellery, documents, guns, etc. When choosing to buy a residential use safe which is mainly to be a precaution in case of a burglary, it is worth to choose a type that comes with insurance for cash and valuables that are kept within the safe.

• Office Safes – such security safes come in a selection of sizes to meet specific requirements. The smallest office safes have the capacity to hold cash and electronic media storage devices such as external hard drives, USB sticks, etc. Large office safes have enough room to hold files and folders. We highly recommend choosing a fire resistant safe in order to increase the level of security for items stored in office safes.
