Types of Commercial Safes

Before you even start considering the purpose of the commercial safe or the exact specifications you need regarding size, fire safety rating, etc, you need to figure out which type of commercial safe you need. There are a lot of different classes of commercial safes for sale in the market. However, the following are some of the most popular and commonly used.

Office Commercial Safes

Office safes are ideal for retail businesses. They can either be bolted to the floor or allowed to stand freely. These commercial safes should ideally have a high fire rating to protect the contents from damage in case there’s a fire.

Deposit and Drop Commercial Safes

This is the ideal commercial safe for retail stores and restaurants. These are great because they come with a little slit through which you can add documents and money without having to open the safe. There’s a hopper-door at the top through which you can add contents.

In-Floor Commercial Safes

These commercial safes can be hidden from plain view and come with certain added security measures.

High-Security Commercial Safes

These are top-of-the-line high-security commercial safes used by banks and large corporations. These are quite expensive and come with security features such as an added barrier, drill-prevention measures, fire safety, etc.

Commercial Safe Ratings

Now that you’re all caught up on the different types of commercial safes on sale, you need to consider security. Different types of safes come with different levels of safety measures, and these measures are rated by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Commercial safes are generally rated on three criteria: fire-resistance, burglar-resistance, and lock ratings.

Fire Safe Ratings

Fire-resistant safes are broken down into three categories based on different temperatures, and the amount of time it would withstand it.

• Class 350: These safes maintain an interior temperature below 350 degrees Fahrenheit. As such, they can be used to store documents.

• Class 150: These safes maintain an interior temperature below 150 degrees Fahrenheit. As such, they are used to store film and magnetic tapes.

• Class 125: These safes maintain an interior temperature below 125 degrees Fahrenheit. As such, they are used for hard drives and other valuable electronic goods.

Theft Safe Ratings

To measure a particular commercial safe’s Theft Safe rating, professional safe crackers are hired to break into the safe. Underwriters Laboratories then measures how long it takes to break into certain safes using hand or torch tools. The duration and time it takes becomes one of the primary factors of measuring the safe’s Theft Safe Rating.

Additionally, these safes also come with additional security features such as Drop safety. This ensures that even if the safe is dropped from a height, it won’t break open. Other factors include the presence of a burglar alarm, drill-resistance, and many others.

A TRTL-15×6 safe can withstand a burglary attempt for 15 minutes whereas a TRTL 15×30 can withstand it for about 30 minutes. A B-rated commercial safe can be used to protect valuable worth around $5000. However, a UL TRTL-30X6 is generally used to protect assets worth millions of dollars, or even more.

Lock Ratings

A commercial safe isn’t completely secure unless you have a comparable lock to go with it. Locks come with their own set of safety ratings as well. Electronic locks can be Type II or Type IF. The former is suitable for most small businesses, and the latter is the highest rating compliant with FF-L-2470 Federal Standards.

There are four major types of lock ratings out there:

• Group 2 can withstand semi-skilled safecrackers.

• Group 2M is resistant to skilled crackers.

• Group 1 can stand skilled manipulation for over 20 hours.

• Group 1R have the highest degree of resistance, including resistance to radiological attacks.

When you consider all of the previously mentioned safety factors regarding Fire, Theft, and the Lock, you can determine the right safe for your business.

Other Important Factors to Consider

How big should the safe be?

It depends on the items you want to store in your safe. If it’s documents and files, stack them up, measure them, and figure out how much space they need. Then you should double that space for good measure because people always need more space than they think.

If you want to store more than just documents, you can also consult one of our experts about which commercial safe size is right for you.

Where should the safe be kept?

Regardless of how secure your safe is, it should be kept in a convenient yet safe space. Ideally. Depending on the weight of the safe, you will also need to consider the surface of the ground which the safe will be placed on.

Well, with that we’re all done. This is everything you need to know about commercial safes to get you started with your research. Hope you now understand how to choose the best commercial safes for your business!
