You never know when an accident may happen, which could leave you without your most valuable possessions to hand. For example, if you had a fire at your business or home or were victim to a theft, personal documents and confidential paperwork could be lost. In order to safeguard your important business or personal possessions a security safe is an investment that you can't afford to ignore.

Understanding your Security Safe's Cash Rating
Manufacturers give security safe models their own individual 'cash rating', which is a rating of how secure that model of safe is when fitted to manufacturers’ standards. A cash rating of a safe will determine the total value that the safe is recommended to keep secure.
For example: a security safe with a cash rating of £5,000, can hold up to £5,000 worth of cash. If holding non-cash valuables then the cash rating of the safe is multiplied by ten, allowing you to store up to £50,000 worth of valuables.
With a large range of models and cash ratings to choose from, you are sure to find the perfect security safe to protect your valuables at home and in the office.
