Discrete Security Solutions Provided by Floor Safes

17th January 2024

Picture this: a seamless integration of a robust security solution beneath your feet, where valuable possessions find a hidden haven. Enter floor safes – our perfect solution for your discreet security. While traditional safes undoubtedly provide their intended safety and security, there exists a growing inclination towards an additional layer of protection – one that involves concealing our most treasured belongings. However, we’re not simply discussing camouflaging standing safes within our surroundings. Instead, we delve into an intriguing and innovative solution that seamlessly intertwines security with secrecy. In this blog, we’re taking a closer look at floor safes, shedding light on the diverse types we offer, ingenious designs, and associated benefits.

Advantages of Floor Safes:

Hidden underfloor safes offer a range of advantages that render them a preferred choice among those keen on security. Here are several key benefits:

    • Discreet Security: Unlike traditional safes that thieves can easily notice, underfloor safes stay hidden, reducing the risk of theft. Burglars are less likely to search for safes in unusual spots, providing added security.
    • Enhanced Protection: Placing a safe under the floor adds an extra layer of security, making it more challenging for intruders to locate and access the safe. Even if discovered, removing it from the floor is considerably more difficult than a conventional freestanding safe.
    • Optimal Space Utilisation: Underfloor safes efficiently utilise available space, as they do not occupy extra room in your home or office. Note that installing an underfloor safe during the construction phase of your home is notably more cost-effective.
    • Customisable Installation: Underfloor safes can be installed in various locations within a building, providing flexibility and customisation based on the layout and design of the space. This adaptability allows for strategic placement to maximise security.
    • Peace of Mind: Beyond tangible security benefits, hidden safes instil tranquillity. Knowing that prized possessions are hidden from prying eyes adds confidence and an extra layer of protection against theft.

Ironmaster Floor Safe:

Renowned for being lightweight, compact, and flexible, our Ironmaster Underfloor Safes cater to both home and business owners. These safes, offering £3,500 cash cover and £35,000 valuables cover, boast robust construction and cutting-edge security features. Key features include:

    • High-Level Security: Constructed from solid steel, Ironmaster safes are highly resistant to drilling, cutting, and physical attacks. Additional security measures, such as high-security key locks or electronic keypad locks, are often incorporated.
    • Home or Business Security: The Ironmaster Underfloor Safe suits domestic and small business use where regular cash deposits are necessary. Businesses can fit the Ironmaster Underfloor Safe with a deposit tube for ‘out of hours’ cash deposits, creating the ideal discreet security solution.
    • Concealed Installation: Designed for discreet installation beneath the floor, Ironmaster safes are virtually undetectable, providing an added layer of security.
    • Intelligent Design: These floor safes feature a compact, sleek, and lightweight design, ensuring easy installation even in limited spaces. The intelligent design ensures easy access to belongings while maintaining discreetness.

Custodian Floor Safe:

Our Custodian Underfloor Safe provides a discrete security solution for home security, office use, or small businesses. With £6,000 cash cover and £60,000 valuables cover, the Custodian underfloor safe offers a higher cash and valuables cover than the Ironmaster while taking up less space on your property. Here’s what you can expect from the Custodian Underfloor Safe:

    • Enhanced Security: Constructed with a high-grade steel door and body, the Custodian safe features high-quality locking with a live anti-explosive device and a fire-resistant door seal.
    • Fire Resistant: A fire-resistant seal between the door and the body protects important documentation against heat or fire damage.
    • Ample Storage Capacity: Available in two sizes, Custodian Floor Safes offer ample storage capacity for valuables, including cash, jewellery, important documents, and other prized possessions.

Closing Points:

Hidden underfloor safes provide a distinctive and secure means of protecting valuable possessions. With their discreet nature, enhanced security features, and optimal space utilisation, they offer a reliable solution for safeguarding valuables. The Ironmaster and Custodian Underfloor Safes, both insurance-approved and made in Britain, boast robust construction, cutting-edge security measures, and ample storage capacity. Whether you’re a homeowner or a business owner, opting for a hidden underfloor safe offers you the peace of mind that your valuables are protected with an additional layer of security—that is discreetness.
