What To Consider When Purchasing A Commercial Safe
Currently there has been an exponential increase in the number of safes sold per year, whether residential or commercial, thanks to the increase in burglaries over the past few years. We bet you have heard the rumors or you just want to improve the business security in the right way as any boss should, either way, here in this article we will guide you on how to choose the best safe depending on your needs, because as we always say, there is no definitive solution for everyone, it all depends on your context.
Take your notebook, pencil and mental chair and write down all these tips for when it’s your turn to install your safe.
Guidelines for Choosing a Safe for my Business
The first law you should know, not a tip, but something BASIC, is that it is extremely important that you choose a locksmith who really knows what he is doing and can guide you through every step of the process. Never choose a professional who is not licensed or does not have a remarkably high quality service, as this can bury your chances of having a good security system.
Level of security
The level of security depends a lot on what you are going to hide inside the safe, whether it is something as important as business papers or maybe bills, or less relevant things that you don’t want to forget like products or objects.
There are a lot of different types of safes, and this is based on the type of material and even how long they take to open with different types of tools, such as a drill or cutter. Remember that the more secure it is, the more expensive it is, so assume your budget and look for something that works for you.
Lock type and opening system
This may also be more optional than anything else, as it depends on what you’re best at – do you prefer to keep a key for your safety, or would you rather base the opening on a key via a smart keypad? There are a lot of ways to open safes, it is up to you and your budget to choose the best one. Consider very well your option because if you lose the combination or the key you are at risk of having to open your safe with a locksmith service that does not guarantee that you can use it again, because these safes are not made to be repaired, once it is opened in an altered way, it stops working.
Where we will place them
Remember to consider your space, if you want discretion or not, if you are going to glue it to the wall or weld it to the floor, etc. In case you are not sure about this point, you will always have the option of asking a locksmith for his opinion and to guide you in this decision that could compromise your most precious objects inside your business.
There are surface safes, built-in safes (which are the ones we recommend the most for businesses), savings safes that are small enough to deposit money through a slot, etc.
The choice of a safe is something very relative, it depends on what your business needs and what you consider more viable, but undoubtedly, what you will need most is a reliable locksmith service that will give you solutions and guides on how to act before this new decision.
