A certified wall safe offers you the security you need without taking up too much space. Wall safes are integrated directly into the wall, making them both an invisible and space-saving solution for effective protection against burglars. What’s more, they are particularly difficult to find and can only be opened with significant effort.
If builders are switched on enough to start thinking about anti-burglary protection during the planning phase, a wall safe is the ideal security solution.

Just like a floor safe, a wall safe is more than straightforward to install within a new building or renovation. It’s important to bear in mind, however, that these safes have to be surrounded by a concrete casing of 100 mm thick, as this is the minimum thickness required to ensure the ideal level of protection.
Our wall safes are subject to rigorous testing procedures carried out by the independent risk management company ‘VdS Schadenverhütung GmbH’. Here, the safe testers really put the safes through their paces with over 250 different devices and tools as part of their security tests!
Premium-quality wall safes offer an exceptional level of security. Correctly installed, they are incredibly difficult to open or else remove from their location. If you need an even higher level of insurance cover, you may wish to consider our burglar-proof strongboxes or other Signature Safes by HARTMANN. Rather than being integrated into the wall, however, these are freestanding units.
At HARTMANN TRESORE, you can count on certified wall safes that conform to the most state-of-the-art security concepts. We deliver your product either ‘free to kerbside’ via parcel service or as a special transport to the point of use if local conditions allow. To this end, we have prepared a special transport questionnaire for you so that we can determine what your shipping costs would be. Even if you’ve ordered one of our heaviest models, we’ll always know exactly how to help! In addition to our special tools and essential technical equipment, our many years of experience have allowed us to build up extensive knowledge within our field. Our teams are all specially trained and still to this day use the traditional setting technique wherever space is at a premium. This technique relies on boxes and rollers to ‘set’ everything in place step by step, and it can even be used to tackle those tricky spiral staircases.
The tests carried out by VdS make it possible to determine the relevant security levels. The safes in our range are available in a whole host of different sizes with various security levels and resistance grades. These range from security level B according to VDMA 24992 version 05/95 right through to VdS-certified wall safes with resistance grade I according to EN 1143-1. Depending on their quality rating, stand-up safes generally have higher security levels, which means the insurance categories for these are even higher.
Not every safe has built-in fire protection, so be sure to check the product description carefully as this is where the security levels are specified.
At HARTMANN TRESORE, we offer safes with a wide range of different lock types. Most of our wall safes are supplied with a double-bit lock and two keys; however, we can also design safes to suit your own, individual needs – not only in terms of their finish, but also when it comes to their locking mechanisms. What’s more, we can even incorporate mechanical combination locks or electronic locks.
As the name suggests, a wall safe is fixed into a wall. They require an opening that is large enough for the safe, which allows it to be encapsulated by at least 100 mm of concrete on all sides. Once it has been fixed in place, the existing walls offer protection on four sides. When installing wall safes, it is essential to always observe the wall thickness, as the depth of a safe can vary greatly between 135 mm and 410 mm. And that’s not forgetting the additional 10 cm of concrete that encase it.
With all of this in mind, it is ideal for a wall safe to be incorporated into the blueprints for a new house as early as the planning phase. They can, of course, be retrofitted, although this involves considerably more work. Small wall safes can generally be built into virtually any house, although these are only suitable for smaller objects such as jewellery, cash and small data carriers. If you would like to store documents and file folders containing essential paperwork away from thieves, larger safes with the appropriate internal dimensions for the folders are required.
The ideal spots for setting up safes of this size include under the eaves or stairs, next to chimney breasts, or in a (dry) cellar. Of course, it would also be possible to integrate a safe into an exterior wall, although we advise strongly against this location as it can often result in thermal bridges (involving poorer insulation, increased heating requirements, and mould).
To prevent damage caused by condensation water, for example, it is important for the safes to be installed by qualified specialists. Try and make sure, however, that the number of people who know about the location of the vault is kept to a minimum.
Floor safes offer an ideal alternative to a wall safe. In the same way that a wall safe can be installed discreetly into the walls of a building, a floor safe is just as unobtrusive when built into the floor, meaning these safes offer an exceptional level of security.
If you have no opportunity to integrate a safe into the wall or floor, however, furniture safes are another excellent, space-saving solution. These couldn’t be easier to integrate into existing pieces of furniture such as cupboards or desks.
Another alternative to a wall safe is a bullet-proof glass safe. These don’t have to be concealed at all and can be used to store your favourite jewellery or other valuables without hiding them away. These bullet-proof glass display cases can also be found in museums and jewellers. You can even customise your corpus with a selection of several different colours and wood varieties.
