Which Burglary Safe Is Right?

Which Burglary Safe Is Right?

What tools do you want to protect against?

None – Resistant against forced opening by hand. Safes in this category are not built to withstand any of the tools or attacks considered in the other categories. These safes are ideal for protecting your valuables from friends, family, neighbors, housekeepers and contractors, who would not subject the safe to any physical attack.

The safes in this category are lightweight steel safes and fire safes typically (but not always) at a price point of $500 or less (whether purchased at a big box store, online or local merchant).

We offer the following safes:

It is advisable not to store more than several thousand dollars worth of valuables in these containers due to the very limited protection they afford under a physical attack.

 

***A NOTE ABOUT THIS CATEGORY*** – The market is flooded with low end safes that many consumers purchase and use to store their valuables. The problem is the common misconception that any safe will protect from forced entry. THIS IS NOT THE CASE! It is our intention to educate our customers, so they can make the most informed decision, regardless of which safe they purchase.
