Safes for Sale
Firstly safes are not just for hiding away money. Safes have many more uses; their design makes them perfect for storing your family heirlooms, important documents, passports and more. Safes not only protect your important items from thieves, but also from fire and natural disasters.
What types of safes are there?
Standalone: As the name suggests, these safes are designed to rest on the floor or a table without the need to fix to a surface.
Floor safes: This safe is designed to sit flush on the floor, and can be easily hidden in a wardrobe, cupboard, under furniture or a rug.
Wall safes: For homes and businesses that may not have floor space or may prefer the convenience of having a safe mounted inside a wall. Note that wall safes usually provide less storing space and are not as protected by fire.
Which features are important in a safe?
Size: Bensons stock safes in a range of shapes and sizes. When choosing the size of your safe, you need to take into account what is being stored inside, as well as the space it requires to be stowed into, or mounted onto. The size also affects the weight of the safe itself; this is where you need to take into consideration where you are installing the safe, apart from with standalone safes (unless you need to move them!); mounted safes may require extra support.
Fireproof Safes: certain safes should be more than burglar-proof. A safe has a purposed to keep your or your business’ valuable items safe from fire and other disasters. Regardless of the fire safety precautions and sprinklers you may have in your home or property, fireproof safes provide extra peace of mind.
Steel body: the thicker the steel in the walls and base, the stronger the safe.
These safes are again more than burglar-proof and offer premium protection for your items in any situation. It is also worth keeping in mind that the body of the safe (thickness etc.) also plays a part in how fireproof it is.
Lock type: there is a range of locks available for safes, including keys, dials and combination locks. Depending on your needs, wants and efficiency you may choose a key if you are the only person using the safe. Combination locks are ideal for high-speed commercial safes including money drops, or you may prefer a dial lock.
We offer a range of lock types and will help you choose what is best for you.
