Everything you need to know about
security and safes

The subject of security is a key concern when it comes to buying a safe. After all, a safe is not just a safe: don’t be swayed by the look of a safe before you make your purchase, as the true quality of a safe can’t be seen from the outside. Certified safes feature a sticker on the inside specifying the security level classification. You should also make sure that the safe bears the label of a recognised institute such as the VdS or ECB-S. This is the best way to ensure that it has been tested by a qualified certification body, found to be secure, and given the seal of approval in the form of a quality label.

In this section, we discuss the following points relating to safe security in more detail:

  • Safe security levels and resistance grades
  • Safe tests
  • Safe insurance values
  • Burglar alarm systems


We have called upon our many years of experience and the variety of queries received from our customers and prospective safe buyers to put together a list of the most essential and frequently asked questions in a dedicated FAQ zone just for you.
