Choosing the Best High-Security Safe for Your Home or Business in Scotland
Choosing the best high-security safe for your home or business depends on several factors. Read the following guide from ALBA LOCK & SAFE, Scotland’s biggest independent safe specialist.
CHOOSING THE CORRECT GRADE OF SAFE
The safes we supply and install are manufactured by Insafe and are graded according to the degree of protection they offer against attack. Grades are awarded a cash rating by The Association of Insurance Surveyors (AiS) The jewellery & valuables rating is normally 10 times the cash amount. At one end of the scale we have the Guardian S2 which has been graded to hold up to £4,000 cash with the J&V value at £40,000. At the other end of the spectrum we can supply and install the EuroCash Grade 6 which is rated up to £150,000 cash and therefore £1.5 million in jewellery & valuables.
You can therefore choose from 12 different models of safe to suit the cash and jewellery or valuables you would keep at any one time on your premises.
DIFFERENT LOCKING OPTIONS
The next point to consider are the locking options. Choose from high-security keylocks or electronic digital technology. We also supply and install a range of beautiful designer safes complete with fingerprint technology for a more personal locking system.
NOT ALL VALUABLES ARE THE SAME SIZE
We appreciate that not all valuables are the same size however. You may have some prized possessions, family heirlooms or important documents (hard copy or digital) to protect. That’s why each of our safes come in different sizes – allowing you to choose the one which is best suited for your specific needs. You can also choose different interior options including shelves, drawers, cupboards and finishes making your safe truly bespoke.
You should also consider the weight of the safe and make sure it’s suitable for the location.
