The Importance of Professional Installation of Safes

26th April 2024

When it comes to securing your valuables, the importance of professional installation cannot be overstated. From ensuring optimal functionality to guaranteeing maximum security and post installation support, the expertise of professional installers is paramount. Let’s explore why entrusting the installation of security safes to professionals is essential for peace of mind.

Reliable and Hassle-Free Solutions:

Professional installers bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table. With their expert touch, they ensure that the safes are installed securely. This includes assessing weight distribution, anchoring points, and the structural integrity of the installation site. Their meticulous attention to detail minimises the risk of errors, ensuring the safe is securely affixed to its designated location. Additionally, at SMP, security and confidentiality remain our highest priority. With over 40 years of experience in safe design, manufacturing, and installation, we guarantee your peace of mind.

Maximising Security Potential:

Professional installers are well-versed in the proper installation techniques required to maximise the security of safes. From anchoring the safe to the floor or wall to implementing additional security measures, such as bolting down or welding, they take proactive steps to fortify the safe against tampering or unauthorised access. Equipped with the latest technology and equipment, our fleet of delivery vehicles ensures a smooth delivery service. Whether you opt for discrete delivery with our unmarked vans or require specialised equipment for challenging installations, we have you covered.

Preserving Warranty and Reliability:

Opting for professional installation not only ensures the security of your valuables but also preserves the warranty and reliability of your security safe. Professional installers follow manufacturer guidelines to the letter, guaranteeing that the safe is installed in a manner that meets all specifications and requirements. This adherence to standards safeguards against potential issues down the line and maintains the integrity of the safe’s warranty.

Preventing Costly Errors

While DIY installation may seem like a cost effective solution, it often leads to costly mistakes and compromises in security. Professional installers streamline the installation process, saving you time and eliminating the need for costly repairs or adjustments. By getting it right the first time, they ensure that your safe is up and running efficiently without unnecessary delays or setbacks.

Safety Standards and Site Surveys:

For businesses and organisations operating in regulated industries and even homeowners, proper installation of security safes is essential. Professional installers are well versed in industry standards and regulations. They ensure that the installation meets all necessary compliance criteria and insurance requirements. This mitigates the risk of fines or penalties due to non-compliance.

At SMP, health and safety are paramount in all our installations, with every installation meeting European EN1143, BS1183, and EN14450 standards. Prior to installation, we conduct site surveys to assess potential issues and access restrictions, ensuring a smooth and efficient installation process.

Tailored Safe Delivery Options:

Experienced installers can provide customised installation solutions to accommodate unique requirements or challenges. Whether installing a wall safe in a tight space or a high security vault in a commercial facility, professionals adapt their approach to meet your specific needs. We understand that every customer’s needs are unique. That’s why our safe delivery options include drop off only, full delivery and installation, discreet unmarked vehicles, as well as safe removal and relocation services. Whatever your requirements may be, we aim to meet them with precision and professionalism.
