Security Safes – for the secure storage of documents and valuables
Do you need to protect important documents and valuables from unauthorised access? Then high quality safes are the right solution when it comes to storing them. Depending on the valuables you wish to store and the space you have available, different models will prove suitable. At KAISER+KRAFT, we have safes in different designs and with different security levels to choose from.
Key security aspects for security safes
The two most important security aspects for safes are protection from theft, and protection from fire. Safes and secure cupboards, including lock and material, must be able to withstand acts of force from the outside for a certain period of time.
This resilience of safes is defined in resistance units (RU) in the EU standard EN 1143-1. For data safes in which important data media are stored, a high resistance to fire and extinguishing water is also necessary (EN 1047-1). For less important files, however, safes with a lower security class are sufficient.
Selecting safes – the most important criteria
Depending on the contents or suitability for a particular purpose, different types of safes are available. If personal valuables are involved, built-in furniture safes or correspondingly compact steel safes are a very good choice. Their biggest advantage is that they can be integrated into existing office furniture. Many of these safes are also suitable for being anchored to the wall. This saves space and has a subtle appearance. Free-standing safes are an alternative that can prove particularly useful for keeping a large number of documents and valuables secure.
However, insurance policies may also play a role in determining which safe to select. Insurance companies usually have certain requirements that must be satisfied. Among other things, the way the safe is secured is an important criterion for insurance coverage.
To make the right choice, ask yourself the following questions:
- What do you intend to store in the safe? What capacity does it need to have?
- Which security level must be used to company with the insurer's specifications?
- Do you prefer keys or electronic locks?
- How and where should the safe be installed?
