Which Eurograde safe to buy?
If you are looking for the highest level of security, you should consider choosing an Eurograde safe. When you buy an Eurograde safe it's important to consider what you will be keeping in it. The Eurograde have a cash rating ranging between £6,000 and £150,000 and valuables rating ranging between £60,000 and £150,000. We advise you to choose for an Eurograde safe with an equivalent or higher cash rating than the amount you will be keeping in it. Check with your insurance company to see if your insurance policy has any additional requirements on the maximum cash or valuable rating. If you need any help selecting the safe that will best meet your requirements, please contact us. If you don't demand the highest possible level of security, you can might also consider our dedicated office safes.
Each Eurograde safe is tested in accordance with the prestigious European security standard EN 1143-1 to prevent attempts for burglary. Within EN 1143-1 the following grades are distinguished: Grade 0 covering £6,000 and Grade VI (6) covering cash up to £150,000. Please be advised that insurance ratings for valuables is always ten times the sum of the cash rating, so Grade 0 covers £60,000 worth of valuables and Grade VI (6) up to £1,500,000. The safes are graded in accordance with the European norms. This grading system is important for insurance reasons, as the contents of a safe will only be insured for the correct value if the safe carries a matching grade.
If you want to protect the safe's contents from fire damage, it is important to consider a safe with a fire resistance rating. This rating refers to the duration, expressed in minutes, that contents will remain protected from excessive heat and fire. The fire resistance ratings are split up into 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes. Choosing the right safe depends on the contents you plan to keep inside. Data storage items such as USB and hard disks are more vulnerable to fire damage than, for instance, paper. Therefore, fire safes are categorized as either document safes or data safes.
