How to Choose the Right Safe for Your Office

In many businesses there are sensitive items and/or documents. These may be things of high financial value (precious stones or large sums of cash for instance) or items important in some other way, such as documents containing commercial secrets which need to be protected etc. Safes are designed exactly for keeping valuable or otherwise sensitive items from being stolen or handled by anyone unauthorized to do so. It is therefore no surprise that safes are to be found in many businesses. There are many types of safes intended for office use, it may be hard to pick out the one most fitting the bill in each and every case. In this blog post we bring you some pointers which may help you choose the right safe for your office.

The First Variable – Size

Safes designed for offices come in different sizes and equipped with different types of locking mechanisms. The first thing you should determine when on a quest to find the best safe for your office is how big or small a safe it should be. Generally speaking, bigger safes are more expensive, by choosing a safe that’s too big you may be compromising on how secure the safe is due to budget concerns. On the other hand you do not want to buy and install a high quality safe just to find out that it’s not big enough to hold the things you need to store in it.

Granting Access

The second thing you need to take into account when choosing a safe for your office is who you will want to be able to access the safe and, on average, how often. If several people will need to be able to get to the safe’s contents on a daily basis you should put the emphasis on choosing a safe that while providing the necessary level of protection is still quick enough to open and close, a combination safe allows granting access to several people just by providing them with the code.

Weigh all Pros and Cons

Once you’ve decided the size and know how often the safe will be opened and by how many different people, comes the time to learn a little about the different types of safes available and the pros and cons of each. The main thing differentiating between the types of safes is the locking mechanism and how it is operated. For instance, there are safes with key operated locks, safes with mechanical combination locks and electronic safes with digital combination unlocking. Purely mechanical safes are considered reliable but electronic safes may be harder to crack.

Have the Safe Installed Professionally

With safes it is essential that they be installed and serviced by locksmiths who know what they are doing.
