Tips for Purchasing a Home Safe
August 13, 2013 | Written by: Armstrong Security
All homeowners want to protect their valuable property and keep their families safe. Whether you need a safe to store your treasured family heirlooms or keep your guns safely out of reach of young children, it’s important to work with an experienced security expert. For more guidance, check out these helpful tips for purchasing a safe for your home.
Safes today come in every size and shape. Whether you need a safe for documents, jewelry, guns, or simply to keep your personal items secure, your access control specialists can help you pick a safe designed to protect its contents from fire, theft, and even water. While fire is the top concern of most buyers, burglary-resistance is also vital. For extra protection, consider having your safe bolted down in a concrete floor or concealed in a wall.
Safes also come in a wide range of cost points, making this security investment affordable for any budget. While you can purchase a fire chest for your documents for a relatively low cost, even larger safes with accessories like drawers and shelves are budget-friendly.
The best place for placing your safe depends on your home’s design. While some people prefer to have jewelry or gun safes installed in the master bedroom for immediate access, this room is often a burglar’s first stop. Consider installing your safe in a basement or ask your access control experts to help you select a less obvious location.
