The Smartest Decision You Can make in Choosing the Best Safe

The Used safe is the equivalent of the best-selling certified burglar-proof safe in the Benelux and is also the winner of the Consumers’ safe test. Just like with that, you can choose from an electronic code lock or a double-bearded key lock. In the used safes for sale you can have the following options.

Certified burglar-proof safe

  • The ET 2 private safe is class S2 European certified according to AN 14450 and is therefore suitable for storing $ 5,000 in cash or $ 9,000 in valuables. In terms of fire resistance, the wall of this burglar-resistant safe is filled with fire-retardant filling, which only ensures limited fire resistance, and furthermore it has not been tested.

Sistec EM 4-e

The EM 4-th burglar-proof safe. He has value retention of $ 10,000 in cash or $ 20,000 in valuables (Grade I certified according to AN 1143-1). This model is locked with an electronic code lock that can be set with two codes. The lock is AN 1300 certified.

Sistec EM 4-e with limited fire resistance

This safe is only fire resistant to a limited extent according to DIN 4102. The designation DIN 4102 indicates that the walls of the safe are provided with fire-retardant material, but do not offer long-term fire resistance. In addition, a safe with the designation DIN 4102 has not been tested. This safe can be anchored to the wall and floor using the two included locking bolts.

Spacious safe with two shelves

With its capacity of 65 liters, this safe is quite spacious and comes with two removable shelves. You can place this at the desired height or remove it from the safe, which means that the safe is completely in line with your wishes.

Can the safe be securely anchored?

A common mistake is not to anchor a safe on the wall or floor. Burglars simply take the complete safe with them to break it open later. Safes up to 1000 kg must be anchored. This is part of the burglary-resistance and required by insurers.

Most safes have one or more anchoring holes in the bottom or back of the safe where the safe can be firmly bolted. The anchoring is done by drilling a hole through the designated holes in the wall and floor. You then place keylinders or chemical anchors to fully secure the safe. If possible, always anchor a safe. If drilling fails, glue the safe so that it cannot be taken.

Finally where do you buy a good safe?

Many hardware stores such as the Gamma and Praxis offer cheap lockers from price fighter brands among hardware. These lockers usually do not have a certificate and offer hardly any protection. This means that the burglary resistance has not been verified and the safe has therefore not been assigned value retention. This means that the content is not insured. Go to a safe specialist who sells renowned brands who can advise you well in making the best choice.
