What are the safes
Choose a safe should be based on their ownNeeds. Safes are subdivided into burglar-resistant, fire-resistant and combined, protecting both from breaking, and from a fire, they are the most expensive. Burglar-proof safes, according to Russian standards, can be divided into 12 classes - degrees of protection. The higher the class, the safe is more reliable and, accordingly, more expensive. For household use, safes are offered not higher than Class III protection. This class is determined not only by the type and complexity of the lock, which can also have a degree of reliability A or B, but also the wall thickness. A safe with class I reliability should have a wall thickness of at least 3 mm and be equipped with a class A lock. There are also non-hard-proof safe constructions whose class is defined as 0 or H0. They are rather designed to guard against childish curiosity.
A good and reliable safe should be equipped with a lock with protection against sawing.
Safes vary in the way they are installed. Built-in are mounted in the walls and fixed firmly with cement mortar and anchor bolts. As a rule, only their front panel has enhanced protection - on all other sides they are protected by impermeable walls. Masking is carried out with the help of paintings, mirrors or wall finishing panels. If robbers try to pull such a safe out of the wall - there will be a lot of noise. Furniture safes can be installed wherever you are comfortable. They are small in size and can be hidden anywhere, for example, in a wardrobe or closet. There are models that can be secured with reliable anchor bolts using walls or floors for this. This complicates the task of robbers, especially if we consider that the weight of such a safe can be quite large.
Safes are equipped with key, mechanicalCode and electronic locks. Key locks are the most popular. Mechanical may or may not be able to change the code, the electronic code must be periodically changed.
To ensure the uninterrupted operation of the electronic safe lock, an autonomous power supply must be provided.
How to install a safe
In order to install the in-built safe safely, forIt needs to be hollowed out, and maybe even at the construction stage to provide for a special niche. The body of the safe should be welded reinforcement or hinges, which after installation are poured with cement mortar in the space between the walls of the safe and the niche.
When making additional hinges or holes for fastening the safe, operate neatly so as not to disturb its fire resistance.
For installation of furniture design safeAnchor bolts are required, they must be particularly strong, because even a simple scrap provides a tensile strength force. Usually, fixing holes are on the back or bottom wall of the safe, if they do not, drill them yourself. To install the anchor, drill a hole in the floor or wall and insert a sleeve in it, when the bolt is twisted, the petals on the sleeve will disperse and wedge inside the hole, providing a secure attachment.
