Underfloor Safes

Underfloor Safes

Investing in a safe for your business or home is the most secure way of storing your valuables. Keeping important documents and money locked away ensures their protection against theft, loss or damage. There are many different types of safes, such as free-standing, deposit, wall safes and underfloor safes.

Underfloor safes are ideal for homes or offices with limited space. Because the safes are installed under the flooring, this dramatically reduces the amount of space they take up, as usually, they take up no floor space at all. Deposit underfloor safes however do protrude slightly above ground level, so if you’re considering have one of these installed, make sure it is out of the general footbath of the room to prevent people tripping.

There isn’t the downside of the visibility of your safe, as there would be with a free-standing safe. By having a safe hidden away, such as under your flooring, this prevents anyone inside your home or business from becoming aware of the fact you have a safe. This can prevent anyone trying to target your home or office as they may think because you have a safe, you also have valuable possessions which they could attempt to steal. Although getting into a locked safe is very difficult, if not impossible, seeing that you have a safe could be enough for some people to believe they could find other valuable items around the house or office.

Any type of safe prevents the loss or misplacement of items. Countless passports, forms of identification, wallets and other important belongings go missing each year, and these can cost heaps to replace. By storing these in your underfloor safe, you won’t need to shell out for costly replacements and you can easily grab them from their secure location before you go out.

Having an underfloor safe installed can protect valuables from damage. Underfloor safes can be seen to be beneficial in the event of a natural disaster. Having a water-tight, fire-resistant, underfloor safe installed will protect any items stored in it if the worst were to happen and your home or office caught fire or flooded.

Finally, and one of the most important benefits of underfloor safes, is that it will provide peace of mind. This is something you can’t put a price on when it comes to protecting your expensive or valued possessions. Storing these items in ‘hidden places’ around the home or office can leave you worrying frequently about the safety of these items. By keeping them in an underfloor safe, this eradicates the stress that could be caused by having valuables left lying around.
