Insurance Rating

This indicates the amount of cash and valuables that can be expected to be covered by the insurance underwriters when items are locked in a safe which is secured in an appropriate way. However, depending on the security measures taken at the location where the safe is installed insurance underwriters are at liberty to decide on a different level of cover to those indicated here.

Tip: Always check that your own insurance underwriter approves of the insurance rating suggested for the safe you have chosen before making your purchase. Local factors can lower the insured value, but other circumstances may also raise the cash cover.

Tests at these institutes for burglary resistance are carried out by very experienced and qualified testers with the relevant knowledge and skills.  The results of their attempts to open the safes are translated into Resistance Units (RU) and the tools used and the time taken to open the safe are taken into account. The results are used to determine the correct grade for the safe.
