Safes

The first question you need to ask your self is “what do I need to protect?”
Is it cash in a commercial environment or valuables as a private resident?  If you need to insure the contents it is advisable to contact your insurance company for the grade of safe required.
Safes are tested and certificated to various levels of protection, these levels start from a minimum of £1000 cash rated up to £100’000 and beyond. The more valuable the contents the higher grade of safe required. However cash safes are tested in accordance with EN1143-1/2 by BRE (Building research Establishment)/LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board) or a test house accredited by EFSG (European Fire and Security Group) and they give the below grades.
The general rule of thumb for domestic safe is to times the cash rated by a factor of 10 to give you a valuables rating.

    Engineer arrived on time and was very friendly, willing to take on board our comments regarding box location from the moment he arrived – He went through the system and demonstrated it several times.  He was thorough in his testing.  He took extra care to hide the cabling, swept up and even offered to vacuum!
