As in all other sectors, safes have undergone innovations over the years, and consumers are increasingly choosing to buy a wall safe rather than a traditional safe. This is due to the many advantages of built-in safes, such as increased security against removal in the event of theft. They can be installed in homes as well as in shops and offices. However, it is easier to install them in homes, as the size and depth of the space available is more advantageous.
The increase in burglaries in Spanish homes has risen by 35% in the last year, becoming one of the main reasons why more people are deciding to install security compartments in their homes to store their valuables, popularly known as safes.
At Arcas Gruber, as experts in safes, we would like to introduce you to the advantages of installing a built-in safe compared to other models.
Installing a wall safe: a higher level of security
The installation of a built-in safe provides a higher level of security than traditional safes. The reason lies in the fact that, as the whole body is inside the wall, they are more secure and provide more guarantees against theft, as they must be manipulated through the door. Furthermore, if you choose the option of embedding the safe in the floor, it is easier to camouflage, the opening space is smaller, and therefore provides greater guarantees against theft.
As the door is the only part of the flush-mounted enclosure that has contact with the outside, it should be used with care in order to slow down its deterioration in the future.
Built-in wall safes: easier to conceal
Preventing attacks is the main objective of the built-in safe, and being able to go unnoticed or be placed behind furniture or decorative elements significantly increases its security.
As is well known, one of the oldest and most practised camouflage techniques was and still is to “hide” the safe behind a picture. However, these tend to stand out and signal that an attempt is being made to conceal something, which rather than acting as a deterrent, attracts attention.
Wall safes and their difficulty of extraction
In addition to the benefits of in-wall safes in terms of security and ease of concealment, the difficulty of removal must also be taken into account. An in-wall safe has an advanced locking system that is difficult to break. This is due to the work that must be carried out for its installation. Despite the fact that it can be understood as a masonry job with a medium level of complexity, at Arcas Gruber we recommend using qualified professionals such as our technical team, which will avoid imperfections, future problems and therefore a greater expense in repairs.
Versatility of a wall safe
As mentioned at the beginning of this article, it is most common to install these safes in homes. However, a built-in safe can also be installed in businesses and shops. All you need is a suitable wall with the necessary recess for the built-in safe. If you have a company or office located on a ground floor or basement and you are thinking of installing a safe, in Arcas Gurber we recommend you the floor recessed safes.
