All the safes seem to look the same. What is the difference between a £1,000 and £100,000 cash rated safe?

  • Yes, they do look very similar, but there is a huge difference in the construction and security measures in the range of safes from the small Home Safe to a High Security safe to protect £100,000 cash.
  • As the cash rating increases, the number and strength of the bolts increases. The filler material between the inner and outer body shells becomes more resistant to cutting, drilling and burning. The areas round the lock and bolts are strengthened with hardened steel plates.
  • All these measures make the safe more resistant to attack, and increase the time it would take to break into.
  • The resistance to attack is taken into account by the safe testing organisations, and they allocate the relevant cash rating.

 

A good example of a £1000 cash rated security safe is the Yale fire Safe YFM/310/FG2
