Overnight Use 

Are you going to be using the safe to store money overnight? High Security composite safes are highly recommended for storing money overnight.

Size & Capacity 

When buying a safe, it is important to look at the size and total capacity of the safe. Just because a safe is large enough for your valuables right now, does not mean it will be sufficient enough down the road as you keep adding more valuables inside the safe.

Safe Location 

When looking for a safe, one should always evaluate the desired area for the safe. It is always important to consider all variables, including floor weight capacity, entrance path, door swing, safe depth, and flooring.

Questionaire 

When purchasing a safe, establish all of the necessary information from the beginning. The following questionaire is simple, basic, and should direct you to the best safe for you:

Are you buying a safe for your home or business?
What valuables/materials is the safe going to protect?
Do you need a safe for burglary protection, fire protection, or both?
How large of a safe do you need?
What area are you going to place the safe?

If you still cannot decide what safe you will need, please contact our knowledgeable sales team at (800) 334-6060.
