3 Tips for Purchasing a Secure Safe for Your Business, Manhattan, New York

As a small business owner, one of your most important responsibilities is handling cash and sensitive client information. The best way to protect your company and your customers is to invest in a secure safe and have it installed on-premise by a professional locksmith. Here are some helpful tips for determining which safe is right for you.

3 Locksmith Tips for a Buying Business Safe

1. Check Door & Body Thickness

Always look for options made of solid steel (not composite wrapped in sheet metal). Other materials, no matter the product guarantee, simply aren’t strong enough to withstand tampering from a burglar. For maximum security against metal saws or other heavy-duty tools, locksmiths recommend purchasing one with at least one-half inch of thickness for the door and a quarter-inch for the body.

2. Avoid Hard-To-Open Doors

locksmithWhile people assume a safe that is hard to open is the best option, you may be doing your business more harm than good. If a safe isn’t easily accessible, you and your staff are less likely to use it, meaning cash and sensitive information are left unsecured. Instead, look for options with high-quality electronic locks, which can be changed manually at your convenience. If your budget allows it, a fingerprint biometric lock provides maximum security and can be programmed for as many fingerprints as needed.

3. Count the Relockers

Lastly, never purchase a company safe that doesn’t come equipped with relockers. When someone attempts to tamper with the safe, these metal pins clamp down into locking bolts and cannot be retracted without hours of effort. The more relockers, the higher grade the safe is for security, beginning at two and going up to ten.
