Looking for an option at home

Not all safes are equal, and some are not as well performing as you might think. We can help you find a solution that will give you peace of mind!
Fire / Burglary Safes

Fire rated options are designed primarily to resist heat while also offering some resistance to theft or burglary.

Ideal for passports or wills, documents & precious items, where you have no fire protection systems. Best of both worlds when it comes to protection!

Burglary Safes

Designed primarily to resist theft, tampering and burglary these options are heavy duty and hard to enter

These are ideal for situations where you have a managed fire control system, and are looking for high rated theft and burglary protection

Specific safes

Outside of the typical cash, document and fire type, there are a number of options designed for unique functions

You may be needing some smaller options for your accommodation or airbnb? Or a place to secure your duck shooting guns!

Commercial options

Generally commercial safes are stronger, more resistant to impact and larger, but with the demise of cash and online storage, safes have got smaller and smarter!

We continue to be suppliers and installers for all your needs. Call us now!
Key safes

Key safes are a great solution to managing shared keys, controlling and recording who accesses them

Key management safes can save you money and insurance when installed in your organisation.
