There are several types of security safes available for homeowners and
businesses. Depending on need, these owners may choose a security safe
that is also fireproof, or they may opt for a simple office safe to keep
cash profits protected.
Wall safes are installed into a wall of a home or business. Wall safes
keep valuables and files protected against theft, but
they should also be rated against fire and water, in the event of a building fire or plumbing leaks.
After determining the size and features to include on a wall safe, a homeowner
or business owner will consult with a safe installer about the best location
for installation. The owner may choose to put a picture or some sort of
removable covering over the face of the safe to ensure others do not see it.
An office safe may differ in size and function, depending on the type of
business using it. Some safes are large enough to hold private documents,
large amounts of money, and other valuables. Other businesses may choose
a smaller safe to hold the physical cash from each day.
A gun safe is used to protect unsuspecting, negligent, or ill-intended
people from taking and using the guns in a house or business. There are
many sizes of gun safes to hold a small pistol or to hold a large rifle.
Many gun safes come with different types of locks, including a combination
lock or a biometric lock. A strong gun safe will also be fireproof in
the event of a building fire.
When choosing a fireproof safe, ratings will differ depending on how long
the internal temperature will not exceed 350°F. Fireproof safes will
have a fire rating of 1, 2, or 3, indicating the number of hours it will
not exceed an internal temperature of 350°F during a fire.
