Safe Installation - Discreet, Professional, Confidential

Certified Safes Ireland™ technical personnel are fully insured and trained home safe delivery and installation experts 

Certified Safes Ireland™ offer a range of certified solutions for the secure storage of gold, silver, jewellery, art objects and other valuables. From discreetly fitted certified safes in a range of sizes, to private and sometimes hidden strongrooms that can double as an emergency saferoom. Our specification, design and installation team are specialists. We will always be able to find a location for your safe that allows it to be correctly anchored to EN1143-1 test laboratory standards, making physical removal impossible without truly industrial level of force.

Protected structures

Some private residences or business premises for which a safe may be required can have the complication of being an older structure largely unsuitable for correct anchoring of a safe or for more substantial requirements, to support the weight of higher-grade safes. Certified Safes Ireland™ are uniquely qualified to survey a period premises and find a location that allows the correct installation of a safe to European standards. Surveys are usually free of charge, without obligation and entirely confidential.

In cases where a more substantial high grade safe is required by an insurer or to accommodate large volumes of valuable documents or art objects, Certified Safes Ireland™ can supply specialised certified safes built with BFP light weight construction technology offering substantial weight savings for older buildings when compared to high grade safes of more conventional design. These safes can also be tailored with various external panels to blend in with a large variety of period environments.

We have the experience, training, and depth of knowledge of European standards for safes, strong rooms, and alarm integration to address all client concerns in a manner that does not compromise quality, security, or aesthetic considerations. Our extensive experience installing safes both large and small into Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian era premises, has seen us be referred by architects and insurers who appreciate the knowledge of structure and attention to detail required when fitting a safe into an old and sometimes protected structure.

 

Safes Anchored To EN1143-1

 50kN minimum installation

EN1143-1 certification is void for a safe that has not been anchored but some safe installers' idea of what constitutes “anchoring” can differ wildly from others. The benchmark for the correct anchoring of a certified safe is a replication of the laboratory test anchoring force. This means an anchor designed to achieve a holding force of 50kN (5.089 tons) for a safe up to grade III and 100kN (11.24 tons) over that grade, holding forces that rule out removing a safe under most circumstances. 

All certified safes come with a bolt suitable for achieving these anchoring forces, so it is really down to the installer of the safe being familiar with the correct anchoring method. As with certification, always ask for a certificate of anchorage with the anchoring force the installation was designed to achieve indicated on the document. If an installer can not tell you how such anchoring forces are to be achieved this should be a red flag.

ISRG declaration

For all Certified Safes Ireland™ installations a conformity of anchorage declaration is available to both client and insurer noting the level of anchorage conformity as it refers to European standard EN1143-1 specifications. 

Anchoring A Small Safe

 

Prepared For Alarm Integration

 Alarm cable track and seismic sensor mounting preparation as standard

An increasing number of people now choose to link a home safe directly with an intruder alarm system with the use of seismic sensors and to a lesser extent duress being the most popular options. Even if you do not intend to do this straight away, or your insurance company has not requested this integration, it is always a good idea to make sure the home safe and locking device you choose is prepared for intruder alarm, seismic sensor, and duress to future proof your investment. Many rudimentary safes on the market have no such preparation. With the exception of some of our smallest safes, most of our home and business safes come with certified alarm cable tracks and seismic sensor mounting preparation as standard. An alarm cable track can also be quite useful for running watch winder and interior lighting cables.

Protecting Your Confidentiality

We understand the need for confidentiality

It may be hard to believe but it is not uncommon to come across photographs of the houses, locations and even the faces of private clients posted to the social media accounts of safe suppliers, installers, and well-known safe companies in Ireland, Northern Ireland, and the UK. Even if it were the case that a private client allowed such revealing photographs to be circulated, there is no reason it should ever happen. It is also quite remarkable that many businesses think it is perfectly acceptable to openly deliver a safe to a private client in a vehicle with advertising livery for safe supply on the side.

As Government and NATO contractors Certified Safes Ireland™ understand the need for confidentiality and will always respect yours. We guarantee the confidentiality of all of our private clients. Any photos taken for survey purposes have location data removed and are erased directly after use unless directed otherwise by the client. All booking records and client information pertaining to completed work is anonymised across all of our systems at the end of each month in compliance with the G.D.P.R
