Cash Safes & Jewellery Safes
Rated according to insurance company risks, when fixed to the floor or wall (cash £750 to £35,000; jewellery and valuables risk is 10 times the cash risk in the same safe). Many safes have at least 1 hour fire protection, ensuring that your valuables are protected against fire. Some of the fittings that our cash safes & jewellery safes have are: free-standing, floorboard, wall and underfloor safes, which are available in a variety of sizes and finishes.
Document & Data Safes
Computer media has a lower melting point than paper and needs extra protection. Most small businesses cease trading after a serious fire. There is no point in making a computer back up every day if you leave it in an unprotected area in the office. Fire safes are available with up to three hours protection. Greater protection results in a much heavier construction and more thought needs to be given to the siting of these. Document protection can also be offered in the form of fireproof filing cabinets and cupboards.
A simple security cabinet will keep your belongings away from prying eyes and casual intruders. These can vary from the lockable box on the left to a more sophisticated type as used in hotels. They are ideal for passports, spare car keys etc.
Are available for Guns, Laptops & Computers, Medication, Till Drawers and Cash Deposit Facilities.
Most specialist safes can be locked with a choice of key, combination or electronic devices. In some cases dual locking is available, e.g. two separate keys or combination and key locking.
