After our company headquarters was robbed for the fifth time, I decided we needed to do a little better at bolstering security. Instead of relying on a few measly cameras and a security guard that was distracted most of the time, we installed a state-of-the-art security system and focused on eliminating inherent security threats. It took a lot of work, but after a few weeks we could tell that our efforts were really helping. We were able to thwart a potential robbery, which made me feel better about the investment. Check out this blog for more ideas on improving your business security.
If you are in the market for a new safe, you will be surprised at all of the different options there are available. To help you choose the right safe, you have to think about where you are going to put the safe and how large it needs to be. Once you know these two things, it can make the buying process easier. Take a look at the different types of safes below.
A wall safe is built into your wall. They are designed to be hidden away for optimal protection. Since they are narrower, they can easily slide between the studs within your walls. A painting, sliding panel or bookshelf can easily hide them away.
Out of all the different safes, these are the simplest to use. If you are using your safe daily, this is the best choice. They come in a number of different types and sizes. Choose from a safe that is burglary-resistant or fire-resistant, if not both all rolled into one. These safes should be attached to your property by bolts. This helps to increase security and protection from fires.
With this particular safe, it is built directly into your property and cemented or built into the floor. Similar to a wall safe, they are narrow enough to fit between the joists in your floor, making them nearly impossible for a burglar to remove. You can conceal them in the floor, under furniture or underneath of carpeting.
One of the new additions is that of a hand gun or laptop safe. Laptops are quite simple to steal. They contain content that is often valuable and irreplaceable. Because of this, you want to have a safe to protect your laptop. A laptop safe is often connected to a wall, desk or shelf. Small computer items and hard drives are often put in the safe. These safes also work for storing a handgun in the office or home. Not only are they small, but they are extremely convenient when you need protection from a would-be thief.
Now, that you have an idea of what types of safes are out there, you can make an informed decision on which safe is going to accommodate your particular needs. Consider what you are going to put into the safe and where you are going to place it when making your purchasing decision. To learn more, contact a security company like Blue Line Security LLC.Share
