Can you explain what Cash Rating and Valuables rating are?

The Cash Rating indicates what an insurance underwriter will insure the contents of the safe for and can usually be multiplied by 10 times for valuables. This means that a safe with a £1000 cash rating would be suitable to protect £1,000 cash or £10,000 of valuables. Cash ratings are a guide to the security level of the safe; the higher the rating, the more resistant the safe is to attack.

The cash ratings are only a guide and assume that the safe is correctly installed. Insurance underwriters may require a higher or lower rating depending on the perceived risk, location etc. It is important to check with your insurance company and get their approval, before purchasing a safe.
