What to Look for When Buying A Home Safe

What to Look for When Buying A Home Safe

Thick Solid Steel Door & Walls 

We recommend selecting a safe with SOLID steel walls and door. Despite marketing hype, safes lacking this basic level of protection are much easier to crack. Choose a safe with a minimum ½” thick solid steel door and a ¼” thick solid steel body.

Carefully Consider the Safe's Weight

Steel is heavy so quality safes with solid steel construction will weigh much more than a thin walled insulated safe.

Quality fire rated safes construction utilizes a high density concrete amalgamate. These fire safes will weigh much more than safes that use insulation panels.

UL Locks 

We recommend purchasing a safe with a UL approved Group 2 lock or better.
