What do the terms 'cash rating/insurance cover’ and fire rating’ mean?

Insurance cover signifies the safe’s security protection level and the maximum amount of money that an insurer would cover in the event of theft. This is often referred to as a safe’s cash rating. The fire time/rating is the minimum protection (time) a safe will protect it’s contents without incurring damage in the event of a fire. Safes with a stipulated fire time, will have been subjected to fire tests carried out by independently approved testing authorities.

Ratings (both cash and fire) are initially given by the safe manufacturer and should always be confirmed by your insurer.

How do I work out how much I can store in valuables in the safe?

As a guide insurers typically give up to 10 times the cash rating for valuables, for example, a 2k cash rating will give up to 20k cover for valuables.

Does the size of the safe make any difference to the cash rating?

No - size doesn't matter

Are electronic locks reliable and what happens if the batteries run down ?

Yes. The electronic locks we sell are as reliable as the keylock versions. In fact electronic locks offer many advantages over the keylock, a) not having to worry where to hide the keys and b) high specification electronic locks offer various features including time delay, multiple user codes and audit trail facilities. All our electronic safe locks offer a warning long before the batteries run out of power. If the warning is ignored, don’t worry the combination will be saved. You should refer to the manufacturers instructions on how next to proceed, but rest assured you will be able to gain access to the safe.

Can all safes be bolted down?

All security safes we sell have pre- drilled holes in either the base or rear of the safe (insurers as a rule stipulate that these safes are bolted down). Historically fire rated safes didn’t have pre-drilled fixing points as this could affect fire protection capabilities. However with advances in manufacturing processes, many modern fire tested safes are now specifically designed with fixing points, providing the benefits of fire protection with added security.
