Even when intruders manage to get into a home or office, valuable property shouldn’t be at risk. With the right safes protecting valuables, property stays put when privacy is violated.
Fire-rated safes will withstand fire and other natural disasters. They also protect documents and other valuable objects better than any security system. Burglary resistant models are better than security systems because they keep intruders out and away from valuables, instead of just informing when your items have been compromised.
When shopping for a home safe, the features we want you to look for include:
- How far the fire department is from your residence
- What type of valuables are being out into the safe
- The location of the safe’s placement (i.e. in a closet, garage, etc.)
- The accessibility of the safe
When choosing the right safe for your valuables, we tend to look at what valuables you’re trying to protect. If you were to say that you’re looking to put jewelry, small keepsakes, and cash into a safe, we would lead you to a standard fire-rated safe between 30 minutes to 1 hour. If you’re using the safe to protect documents, a 2-hour fire-rated safe would be an appropriate safe for you.
Gun safes are also an important part of any location where firearms are stored. In addition to protecting against theft, they keep weapons out of the hands of criminals as well as protect the safety of any person who is unskilled with firearms. Gun safes tend to range from 30 minutes to 2 hour fire-rated and burglary protection. For the protection of your guns, gun safes usually have 2 or 3 layers of fire-insulating material. Gun safes come in a variety of sizes, from small pistol boxes – to have at an arm’s reach – to armored vault-sized safes for the typical hunter or gun collector.
Laws imposing criminal liability when a child gains access as a result of negligent storage of a firearm:
Fourteen states and the District of Columbia have laws that impose criminal liability on persons who negligently store firearms where minors could or do gain access to a firearm. (Tex. Penal Code Ann. § 46.13)
This list is far from complete. Jewelry vaults and vault doors, for example, are useful ways of protecting items too important to leave behind regular locked doors or even at the bank. When protecting your valuables from family, friends, or even intruders, knowing what safe is right for you can protect you in the future.

Upon hiring them I received a comprehensive checklist of items that they needed done before they arrived.
