Cash Rating Guide
Safes are graded according to their locking mechanism and construction; a Cash Rating is given as a guide to indicate how secure the safe is. This is a good general guide to the construction of the safe. However it will depend also upon other factors such as being installed in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations and other physical and electronic security within the proximity where the safe is installed.

As a general guide insurers will offer the Cash Rating x 10 to cover jewellery and valuables, for instance our Epic Belmont Range has a Cash Cover of £17.5K and would typically have an insurance cover for jewellery and valuables for £175K. This is only for guidance; please ask your insurance company.

Size Guide
A Safe is a long term investment, it is important to consider both your current needs and how your needs might grow in the future before you choose a model. Look at the external dimensions, does it fit where you want to position it but also look at the internal dimensions, will it house all that you intend to keep secure: jewellery, documents, data or even your laptop.
