Do You Need to Bolt Down a Home Safe?

If you are buying a graded safe for insurance it is most likely that your insurance policy will specify that you will need a safe that you can bolt down. Whether it’s safes for businesses or safes for jewellery and valuables at home we always recommend that safes are fully installed and bolted down by a professional.

Most eurograde AIS approved models are safes that can be bolted down and come with the appropriate fixings. If you have a safe that doesn’t have fixings there are always ways to secure the safe to the floor or wall as is appropriate.
