Things to look for when shopping for a premium safe include a heavy door and walls made from solid metals that are difficult for potential thieves to penetrate. Both will be hard to drill, cut, pry or torch to gain entry into the safe.
A safe can be rated in two ways. One is by a class rating for 1 to 5 based on the thickness of the safe door and its walls. A safe with a rating of 3 to 5 is considered high security.
The other and most common way a safe is rated is by the UL rating given by the Underwriters Laboratory. Each rating is based on how long a safe is impervious to attack. This rating is 15 minutes to one hour.
A safe can also be rated as tool resistant (TL), or torch resistant (TR). A safe that is rated as TRTL is both torch and tool resistant.
Commercial jewelers, banking and financial institutions will very often have safes that are rated as TRTL 30×6, which designate them as the best possible security against attack.
For a home safe to be an excellent burglary rated safe, first consider what you are storing and that will determine the type of safe to purchase. For important paper documents and money, a fireproof safe with doors and walls made from composite materials that are heat and fire resistant will protect these items.
If you are storing jewelry, select a safe with a steel solid door that is at least ½ inch thick and with safe walls of at least ¼ inch thickness that will deter a potential thief’s common assaults of drilling, cutting, torching or prying.
