The Top Business Safes for 2021

The Top Business Safes for 2021


A business safe is no longer a luxury—it’s a necessity. You need to protect cash, valuables, and documents from theft and fire. Here’s the good news: The top-performing business safes for 2021 are available and affordable. And it’s an investment you’ll never regret! 

Business safes fall into the following five categories:

Burglar and Fire Safes

A combination burglar and fire safe packs a punch—protection against theftand fire. And for a safe to be deemed burglar and fire-rated, it must undergorigorous testing. 

For example, fire ratings indicate how long the safe’s internal temperature stays below 350 degrees (paper and money begin to char at approximately 387 degrees Fahrenheit). Choose a safe that has passed K.I.S. or U.L. fire tests as this will offer you the highest fire protection. 

A combination burglar/fire safe may also have a UL RSC (Residential Security Container) certification. This lets you know how well the safe can handle five minutes of drilling, prying, or tampering using professional tools. If the safe is awarded a B, C, B/C, or RSC rating, it can store $5,000 to $30,000 worth of valuables (depending upon the specific rating). 



Burglar Safes

A burglar safe sends a clear message—Move on! Not worth it!—and is an excellent theft deterrent. When a thief realizes you’ve secured your valuables behind layers of steel, locks, and even biometric or fingerprint controls, he is much more likely to move on to an easier target. 

Burglar safes are assigned a rating by the manufacturer—for example, a letter grade of B, B/C, or C. These ratings indicate the thickness of the safe and the door (e.g., a C rating: ½-inch body and 1-inch door). Pro tip: Select a safe certified by Underwriters Laboratories with a UL rating of TL-15 or TL-30.  



Cash Dispensing Safes

For businesses that handle large amounts of cash deposits throughout the day—such as retail operations—common problems include lost deposits, employee theft, armored car fees, or potential robbery. Therefore, choosing the right cash dispensing safe is crucial in allowing you to secure and/or dispense coins and bills.  




Drop and Depository Safes

Drop and depository safes offer short-term protection of deposits from theft. A drop safe uses a narrow hopper with jagged teeth to prevent someone from reaching into the box or “fishing.” These depository safes range in size and mounting options. Always choose one with a burglar rating of B.  




High-Security Burglar Fire Safes 

A high-security burglar fire safe affords you top-tier protection—designed for content valued from $30,000 to $1,500,000. When looking for a business safe with the highest security ratings, you’ll need to select a model with a UL rating of TL-15, TL-30, TL30X6, or TRTL30X6. 

TL—or Tool Latency—represents the time it takes to crack a safe using tools such as power saws, drills, or even sledgehammers. For example, TL-30 means net tool contact time of 30 minutes (not the much longer total time needed to break into the safe).  






Choosing a business safe doesn’t have to be overwhelming. With a little help from the experts, you can find the right safe at an affordable price to meet your security concerns. Please give one of our business safe professionals a call at 800-207-2259 today!  We are eager to help you find just the right safe for your specific needs.
