How safe is your safe? - SMP Insurance Recommended Safe
With rural crime rates on the rise in the current recession it is more important than ever to
safeguard your valuable possessions.
Makers of fine cash safes SMP Security, warn that although this may seem a relatively easy
problem to solve, through a traditional safe, not all safes meet the required European standards
and in extreme circumstances may not be covered in a insurance claim. This will lead to not only
the loss of the safe, but the ability to claim for the valuables inside.
With over 35 years experience SMP Security are more than aware of these issues. All of their
safes comply to European standards BS EN 1183, BS EN 1143 and BS EN 14450 giving the
consumer peace of mind that an SMP safe will not only withstand vigorous tampering in the
unfortunate event of a burglary, it will also conform to regulations in the event of a claim. Any safe
that is not tested to European standards should be avoided.
Each safe comes with a 2 year guarantee and is suitable for domestic or commercial use covering
cash from £4000 (40,000 jewellery) to £100,000 (£1 million jewellery). A range of sizes are
available with adjustable steel shelving, various locking options and floor anchor kits if required.
Based in Halesfield, Telford, Managing Director Paul Skitt states “Installing a safe is becoming far
more prevalent in the current climate. We ensure all of our safes meet the required criteria for the
user and the European standards commission”
