Things to Consider When Purchasing A Safe
When purchasing a safe there are certain variables to consider to ensure you receive a model that will fit all your particular needs. Below we have listed many factors that need to be considered by an individual purchasing a safe.
Safe Rating Safes are generally rated for both fireproofing and burglary resistance to some degree. The safe rating you should pay attention to is often influenced by what you plan on keeping inside. If you mainly plan on keeping documents in the safe you may be perfectly fine with just a fire rated safe. On the other hand if you plan on keeping valuables such as jewelry or currency in a safe you would definitely want to additionally consider the burglary rating. 1. Fireproof Rating – fireproofing is generally expressed in hours. The time rating is traditionally telling you for how long this safe will keep the internal temperature rating below 350 degrees. The most common times are 1 hour, 2 hour, and 3 hours. 2. Burglary Rating -
Safe Size 1. Interior Dimensions – make sure you have room to expand as you will always find more things you need to put in the safe that you did not originally plan for. 2. Exterior Dimensions – make sure unit will fit into the space you have available.
Special Features 1. Drop / Depository Safe – Popular with many restaurants and retail oriented businesses are depository safes. These types of safe allow you to continally drop money in to them during the course of business while not opening the safe. 2. Data Safe - Contrary to popular belief a fire safe will not keep your digital data (think hard drives and usb sticks) safe. Digital media requires a special type of safe called a data safe. This style safes keeps the internal temperature of no greater than 125 degrees.
