Selecting the correct safe
The design and construction of modern safes depends on the security level required. This can be a simple 10mm steel plate door to a 145mm filled door incorporating 75mm of d barrier material with four way locking bolt work.
It is recommended that professional advice is obtained before positioning and installation of safes.Insurance companies will often ask the grading or cash rating of a safe. This is to determine the amount of cover that they are prepared to underwrite in a specific situation. As individual insurance company’s ratings vary and all situations differ, cash ratings should be used as a guide only. It is recommended that you check with your insurance company before you purchase a safe.
