How to Choose the Right Safe?

Having a safe is one of the best options when it comes to protecting your valuable items. You need to consider certain factors before choosing the right safe for your needs, and whatever the safe you deserve, GreenPro Locksmith have you covered for the supply and installation of such essential security devices. The factors you must consider before choosing the right safe are;

The level and type of protection you require.

  • Fire resistance features.
  • Water resistance features.
  • Burglary protection features.
  • Appearance, portability, and size

Types of protection required, fire and water resistance features as factors for choosing the right safes

There are three main levels of protection levels in most safes, these are; water, fire and burglary protection. The ideal safe must be properly insulated against extreme fire and heat to ensure that internal temperatures of valuables are well-maintained. Some safes are also rated for the duration of fire protection and this can range between 30-60 minutes. Papers and other valuable items must have internal temperatures below 360 °F. In most cases, safes with fire-resistant and burglary-resistant features will normally have water-resistant capabilities. You must ensure that your safe has these three important features before making your choice. 

Burglary protection, appearance, and sizes as factors in choosing the right safe 

There are two may feature to consider when it comes to choosing safes based on their resistance to burglary, these are; the thickness of the steel and the types of locking systems. For the most suitable safe, make sure you choose one with combination locks. Bolts are usually needed to prevent the safes from being forced opened but make sure you choose a safe with a 12 or higher gauge for maximum protection. You should also consider the types of items you plan to store in the safe.

Do not be fooled by the portability of a safe, an average adult may find it easier to pick a lighter safe, while a heavier safe may require more than a single individual to lift and transfer. If you want a safe you can move from one place to another then you may want to limit the number of valuables you store in them. You may also want to choose a lighter and more portable safe for emergency evacuation reason. 

Perhaps the easiest way to choose which type of safe you need is the number of items you want to keep in it. You may want to choose a smaller safe if you are keeping smaller valuable items but make sure you do not compromise the burglary, fire-resistance, and water-resistance features of the safe, for the size.
