Safe Supply, Fitting and Installation

If you have been told you need a Safe or have items of particular value, be they at work or in the home, then you should consider getting a safe to store them in.   However, it’s not just a case of popping down to your local DIY store to buy one. You need the safe to be professionally specified and fitted for it to provide any real protection, and also you need some advice on what safe you should be buying.

Insurance requirements for the safe? Its best to check with your insurer as to whether they are specifying certain criteria for the safe such as cash cover or fire protection rating

What is it that is being stored? Is it documents or media – in which case you may want to consider a fire safe. If it’s jewellery or cash then you have to consider the rating of the safe in order to ensure the relevant insurance cover!
