Things To Look Out For When Buying A Safe

Depending upon what you want to store in your safe the cost will vary according to the level of protection that you require. The general rule of thumb is that the more you spend the better protection a safe will afford you but to give you a little more guidance if you’re wanting to purchase a gun safe or a home safe here are some things to look out for: The thickness of the safe door: This is arguably the most important factor when buying a safe since when safes are compromised by a criminal they have almost always broken in using the front door. The weakest points of a safe are in fact the sides but the average criminal tries to smash their way through the door.

If you don’t know what you’re looking for when it comes to a high security safe you might understandably assume that a safe with a door thickness of 5 inches offers more protection than one that is 4 inches thick however this isn’t necessarily the case. What you should be thinking about is the thickness of the metal that covers the door which will either be a solid steel plate an anti-drill steel plate around the lock or a compressed piece of sheet metal pressed together. The best protection is given with a solid steel plate and it should be around a ¼ of an inch thick.

The strength of the bolts: If the door of a safe is being compromised a bigger bolt will distribute more force and the thicker the metal is where the bolts come out the more secure the entire door will be when it’s closed. When the door of the safe is locked the bolts should be long enough to ensure that the bolt is completely inside the door and secured to the safe when it’s locked. Whatever kind of safe you’re looking for you can use the general rule of the heavier a safe is the better protection it will afford you against the risk of criminal damage but even if you go to buy a safe from a regular store armed with the above knowledge the seller may not know enough to help you confirm what exactly it is that you’re looking for.
