Which Safe is right for you
The most important initial question is what you want to protect – cash and valuables, documents or data media?
CASH AND VALUABLES
Choose from the burglary protection range. This includes safes, cabinets, vaults & vault doors, designed to withstand physical attacks in different strengths or Grades. Each Grade represents a particular “cash rating” which is the amount an insurer will cover*. * The actual amount of cover can vary between insurance companies and country, and may be different to the manufacturer’s recommended rating. You should always check what cover your insurance company is prepared to offer. The most important initial question is what you want to protect – cash and valuables, documents or data media?
DOCUMENTS AND DATA MEDIA
Choose from the fire protection range which includes safes and filing cabinets designed to keep documents or data media safe from the effects of a fire.
To survive a fire, documents require protection from temperatures higher than 177°C. Therefore cabinets have to be specifically designed, tested and then certified for this task. Without a credible certification, you cannot be sure that your documents are safe.
The same is valid for data media, except here the cabinet must offer much greater protection due to the sensitivity of the material. If the inside of the cabinet exceeds a mere 55°C, then the information on a CD, DVD or tape will be destroyed.
