How to understand cash and fireproof rating of your safe

Cash rating of your safe

Cash insurance ratings are used to compare different safes’ abilities to withstand attack represented in a dollar value.

“Insurance Rating” is effectively the same as “Cash Rating”. So you would expect to see a jewellery safe listed as having a Cash Insurance Rating.

These ratings enable you to easily compare different safes and what level of security they will provide.

The higher the cash and valuables ratings of your safe, the harder it is for a thief to break into it.

Fire rating of your safe

When we talk about safes and its fire rating, we make reference to a level of protection your safe can provide the precious and irreplaceable contents stored inside, in the event of a fire.

No safe is completely fireproof.

Safes are rated to be fire-resistant. That is to say, any safe you buy would be rated to protect your valuables for a period ranging from 1 to 2 hours.


What Size Safe Best Suits?

You need to consider what you intend to store in your safe, and understand external and internal dimensions.

If you are looking to store smaller pieces of jewellery, then it makes sense to buy a smaller more compact safe. On the other hand, your jewellery safe might double up as a home safe to store personal identification documents, your laptop, etc. So, some planning beforehand is essential in the decision-making process.

And you want to future-proof your safe so that it can accommodate additional stock or items down the track, as your needs change. This is especially true for business owners and serious collectors who expect their jewellery safe to accommodate future storage capability.


Where Should You Keep Your Jewellery Safe?

How to keep your jewellery safe at home

Where you store your jewellery safe will depend on how you expect to use it.

A suitable location might be in the bedroom if you remove your jewellery before you retire of a night. Other options might include a wall safe or hidden compartment.

Locating your jewellery safe where it’s difficult to get access to or, for example, where you have to walk outside to the back shed would, in many cases, see you leave your precious jewellery lying around, by-passing your safe altogether. That’s not why you purchased it in the first place. So give some serious thought to your safe’s location.

Keep in mind, the weight of your jewellery safe will determine whether it can be placed inside your house on floorboards or needs to be (bolted down) on to a reinforced concrete slab.

Many of our high-grade ex-bank customised safes weigh between 700kg and 1,900kg because the body of the safe incorporates materials like concrete filling that provides a defense barrier against someone illegally opening your safe.

Serious collectors and business owners would put a great deal of thought into how and where they store their safe or install their vault. Some may find onsite storage attractive, as would customers looking to store their sensitive documents long term in one of CAPTAIN SAFE’S highly secure environments.
