Freestanding Compact Home Safes

Freestanding Home and Cupboard Safes

Cash and Jewellery/Valuable Rating Of A Safe

Security safes are generally classified in terms of cash ratings.

These are an indication of the security level of a safe and the maximum level of money that should be stored in it. A cash rating is what an underwriter will insure the contents of the safe for and can be multiplied by 10 times for jewellery/valuables. Therefore a £1,000 cash rated safe would be suitable to store £10,000 worth of jewellery/valuables.

A cash rating is therefore a very good indication of the security level of the safe, the higher the rating, the more security is offered. Our free standing safes range from £1,000 to £10,000 cash rated and suitable to store £10,000 to £100,000 worth of jewellery/valuables respectively.  You should note that different insurance companies ratings vary and higher or lower cover can sometimes be applied depending on the individual circumstances of a property. If it is important you should always check with your insurance company before purchasing a safe.

When thinking about buying a safe we always advise getting one slightly larger then you currently need as over time you’ll find yourself wanting to put more valuables into it.

Lastly when thinking of a location for your safe, it is best to bolt your safe to a brick wall, ideally an exterior brick wall, and/or a concrete floor.
