Even when intruders manage to get into a home or office, valuable property shouldn’t be at risk. With the right safes protecting valuables, property stays put when privacy is violated.
Fire-rated safes will withstand fire and other natural disasters. They also protect documents and other valuable objects better than any security system. Burglary resistant models are better than security systems because they keep intruders out and away from valuables, instead of just informing when your items have been compromised.
When shopping for a home safe, the features we want you to look for include: How far the fire department is from your residence, what type of valuables are being put into the safe, the location of the safe’s placement (i.e. in a closet, garage, etc.), and the accessibility of the safe.
When choosing the right safe for your valuables, we tend to look at what valuables you’re trying to protect. If you were to say that you’re looking to put jewelry, small keepsakes, and cash into a safe, we would lead you to a burglary/fire-rated safe between 30 minutes to 1 hour. If you’re using the safe to protect documents, a 2-hour fire-rated safe may be an appropriate safe for you.
Gun safes are also an important part of any location where firearms are stored. In addition to protecting against theft, they keep weapons out of the hands of criminals as well as protect the safety of any person who is unskilled with firearms. Gun safes tend to range from 30 minutes to 2 hour fire-rated and burglary protection. Gun safes come in a variety of sizes, from small pistol boxes – to have at an arm’s reach – to armored vault-sized safes for the typical hunter or gun collector.
Currently there are Fourteen states and the District of Columbia have laws that impose criminal liability on persons who negligently store firearms where minors could or do gain access to a firearm. While Pennsylvania is currently not on that list, we here at Suburban Locksmiths highly encourage storage of all firearms in safes for child access prevention.
Safes are a useful tool in the protection of items too important to leave behind regular locked doors or even at the bank. When protecting your valuables from family, friends, or even intruders, knowing what safe is right for you can protect you in the future.We supply the highest quality safes that protect what they are supposed to: You and your business’s most valuable possessions.
