Our tip:

Plan for future additional valuables when buying a safe

Take your time to think about your space requirements. It is important that you also think of items that will be added in the safe in future.

The purchase of a safe is for eternity, so it is definitely sensible to choose the safe larger than is currently needed.

To have enough space in your safe in the future and save yourself an expensive new acquisition. The price difference between small and larger models is also often very small!

Do you need your safe in a very specific size?

We are happy to help you! In addition to our extensive range of safes in all sizes, you also have the option of obtaining a safe in the exact dimensions you require. Simply ask us without obligation:

to the safes in class 5

Safes certified according to EN1143-1 have a defined and type-tested burglary protection against attacks with mechanically and thermally acting tools.

Especially when it comes to protecting valuables, cash and important documents, the quality of the valuables container should play a major role at the time of purchase. Nothing is more annoying than having saved in the wrong place and then not being able to adequately protect your material and personal assets in the event of a burglary.

Note: By using a burglar alarm system (EMA), the insurance coverage can be doubled.

* The values given are indicative, please clarify the sums insured with your insurance advisor.
. ** The type test is carried out according to resistance units RU (RU = Resistant Unit). The more RU or resistance units, the higher the Euro standard EN resistance grade.

Our Tip:

Due to the fact that burglars have become much more professional and equipped in recent years, we recommend only safes tested and certified by VdS and ECB-S for the best possible safekeeping of your valuables. These products are tested according to strict guidelines and offer much better protection against forced opening than safes without a test certificate. As a rule, these safes also do not cost significantly more than untested ones, but the additional cost of purchase is definitely worth it.

Tested and certified Value protection safes with an optimal price/performance ratio you will find e.g. with our product range PRIMAT from Security class EN1.
