Every business wants to make profit. But that would be a lost cause if safety of your business assets isn’t assured. What better way to assure your asset’s safety than with a fully functional, reliable commercial safe?
What are commercial safes?
As a kid, I would always save my money inside an old container and hide it under my bed. But I always found my money less than when I left it the last time. I reported it to my mum, and she bought me a piggy bank. She told me to save my coins there. That was a great idea. No one had access to my savings till I broke it open.
Commercial safes are similar, but it’s something more advanced and safer. Commercial safes, also known as business safes, are secure boxes where valuables owned by the business are safely locked up. It protects valuables from theft, fire, floods, and other unforeseen circumstances.
Now, there are different functioning businesses all over Phoenix city. Each possessing their specific safety risks and different types and sizes of valuables. That’s why we deal with varieties of commercial safes.
Your business might require you possessing sensitive records of your clients. You might have a document that shouldn’t get to unauthorized fingers as well. Or you deal with a lot of cash. Then you should protect your business valuables from theft. You should shield it from water or fire damage.
There are varieties of commercial safes with different range of sizes and applications to accommodate all businesses. Knowing the exact type of commercial safe that fits your business is the first step to achieve risk immunity for your valuables.
Here Are The Best Type Of Commercial Safes You Should Buy For Your Business
1. Office safes
Is your business dealing with a lot of paperwork, documents, or files? The slightest spark of fire or a little drop of water can be a huge threat to the working operation of your business. The office safes are fireproof and waterproof.
They have better locking mechanisms than the home safe. In most cases, they are drop tested to confirm that they won’t unlock if they drop from a height. Most models use an electric lock of some kind.
2. Hotel safes
These inexpensive safes are used to keep the valuables of lodgers in a hotel. Let me be honest here, they are not very secure but still it’s better than leaving your guest’s valuables lying around. Some models lock automatically if you attempt too many wrong codes consecutively. These models come with a master key or card, which is useful when the safes automatically lock.
3. Media Safes
Many businesses deal with heavy-duty book keeping or record keeping. You might have entered a room in a school or even a hospital where many papers are kept in cabinets. Keeping papers that way is a huge risk to your business.
Meanwhile, statistics reveal that 62% of hospitals now use external storage media like tapes and disks as a data storage option.
Using external hard drives might seem modern. But it gets worse if the hard drive gets damaged, gets burned or gets soaked in water. That’s like the whole record room getting burned or soaked. That’s crazy.
Media safes are specific for the purpose of securing digital media. They have thick insulation that shields its contents from fire, dust, and water. The fire rating of these safes is higher when compared to other safes.
4. Deposit Safes
Does your business deal with a lot of cash? Yes? Then this is for you. Deposit safes are typically used to store cash. It has a slot or drawer that allows you to put cash or documents inside without opening the safe door. This safe door can’t be accessed without the safe key or code.
This feature makes it only possible for your employees to deposit cash inside without being able to take anything out. This prevents internal theft from employees to a large extent. It also prevents external theft because the employees don’t have the ability to open the safe during the robbery. The safe should be securely bolted to the floor or a static structure. This would prevent thieves from taking the safe in its entirety.
At the end of the day, the manager, the authorized person having the safe key or code, empties the safe and takes the money to a safer place.
If you’ve seen the popular series La Casa de Papel (Money Heist), then you should have a fore-idea of what a vault is. A vault, sometimes called a strong room, is different from the conventional safe. It is not not just a secure box installed in a room; it is rather the entire room.
The door is made of superior high quality steel, with a complex lock mechanism. It is airtight and bomb resistant and used to ensure absolute safety. It is the world’s safest way of security.
