We’ve all seen them – safes hidden away under stair cases, under floor boards and behind picture frames. The home/office safe has been around for decades and in a lot of cases quietly protecting the wealth and valuables of numerous individuals and businesses. But as any safe retailer or installer will tell you none are impregnable so concealing your safes location is paramount to protecting its contents.
Unfortunately thieves are now employing metal detectors and are locating safes with relative ease. Metal detectors are easy to come by and legally own. Some people have resorted to putting a safe behind a safe with the 1st safe containing low value items in an effort to distract the offenders from the real safe behind. This technique can be successful in fooling some criminals but does not prevent an intruder demanding access to known valuables by force.
