Discreet, Professional Safe Installation & Integration
Safe Anchoring And Alarm Integration (EN1143-1) (EN50131)
Certified Safes Ireland™ specification and installation team are qualified specialists who can integrate a safe seamlessly into your home or business in complete confidentially and to the highest standards. We make the unauthorised physical removal of our safes virtually impossible, and have the knowledge and expertise to integrate all our certified safes with a variety of advanced, certified, EN50131 compliant alarm signalling devices.
• Expert Survey
Certified Safes Ireland™ are uniquely qualified to survey your premises and find a location that allows the correct installation of your safe to European standards. Surveys are free of charge, without obligation and entirely confidential. We also have extensive experience installing safes both large and small into premises of the Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian eras, common in Ireland, and we are regularly referred by architects, insurers and wealth managers who appreciate the knowledge of structure and attention to detail required when fitting a safe into an older and sometimes protected structure.
• Professional Anchoring
Certification is void for a safe not anchored correctly and there are many examples most insurers will be familiar with of a “safe” being removed from a premises because it was not anchored correctly if at all. It is a certification requirement under EN1143-1 that a safe is anchored and this should be done in a manner designed to achieve at least 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 as you can imagine, rule out removing a safe without truly industrial levels of force.
• Confidential Delivery And Data Anonymisation
Our safes are always delivered at a time and date that suits you and will arrive in an unmarked vehicle. The safe itself is packaged in black plastic. You can rest assured that as all of our work is covered by non-disclosure. Certified Safes Ireland™ guarantee the confidentiality of all of our clients. Any photos taken for survey purposes have location data removed and are erased directly after use. 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 GDPR.
• Ancillary Services
Certified Safes Ireland™ is part of the ICS Group, a group of NATO registered contractors also fully licensed in Ireland for all electrical, intruder alarm, CCTV, access control, fire suppression, fine art protection and monitoring activities.
• Moving A Safe After Install
If you ever need to move your safe, the concrete anchor securing your safe can be accessed from the inside of the safe. If a certified safe needs to be moved to another location, as long as the anchor can be accessed from the inside of the safe, it can be unbolted and lifted off the anchor. The anchor itself is usually impossible to remove so must be cut and the the anchor hole filled, but this is not a difficult job for a trained safe technician.
Remember: Always ask for a certificate of anchorage to protect everyone’s interests.
Locking And Alarm Integration Options
All Certified Safes Ireland™ safes come with multi-user, EMP resistant certified digital locks as standard. There are also a wide range of locking and alarm integration options that are both low cost and easy to use, that may suit your particular requirements or lifestyle.
The addition of electronic monitoring devices such as seismic sensors and emergency facilities such as duress signalling is a relatively low-cost affair for most home safes. A wide range of electronic monitoring, signalling and anti-tamper devices are easily fitted to, or already integrated into, many of the certified electronic safe locks available on the market.
Once your safe has been correctly anchored to achieve 50kN (5.08Ton), for all intent and purposes it is an immovable object without truly industrial levels of force. A seismic sensor for example, will detect prising, cutting, drilling and heat attacks, but is not triggered by normal everyday use of the safe. What is particularly convenient about a seismic sensor is it is tamper proof and works 24/7 even when an alarm system is switched off.
With so many tested and certified alarm integration devices made for safes, EN50131 (alarm standard) compliant integration of a home safe can be easy, and low cost, while greatly increasing overall security and reducing risk for you and your insurer.
• Penalty Lockout: (Standard Feature)
The penalty lockout feature on a certified digital lock shuts the lock down for ten minutes if four or more incorrect codes are entered in a row making manipulation and random code entry attempts virtually impossible. This is a standard feature with all certified digital safe locks which has no equivalent with any mechanical lock type.
• Multi-user Codes: (Standard Feature)
Most certified digital safe locks have multi-user codes which means no two people have to use the same code to access a safe. In a commercial setting this means an individual code can be removed at will by management. No need to worry that keys may have been copied etc...
• Dual Codes: (Standard Feature)
Most certified safe locks will allow dual code operation, which means two codes have to be entered to open the lock. Ideal in situations where dual person operation is preferred.
• Duress Alarm: (Standard Feature)
Many certified digital locks can be added to your alarm system via an Alarm Module. With an Alarm module in place if a hold-up occurs addition of a digit to the normal access code will trigger a silent alarm.
• Seismic Sensor: (Alarm Integration Feature)
As a properly anchored safe is secured to at least 5 tons, and a certified digital safe lock cannot be manipulated open, power tool attack or a prising attack is the only option left for a professional burglar. A Seismic Sensor will detect prising, cutting, drilling and heat attacks, but is not triggered by normal everyday use of the safe. What is particularly convenient about a seismic sensor is it is tamper proof and works 24/7 even when an alarm system is switched off.
• Time Delay Option: (Standard Feature)
A programmable time delay of 1 to 99 minutes is another standard option in all but the most basic electronic lock models with a time delay opening window that can be set from 1 to 15 minutes. This is a powerful anti hold-up measure.
• Time Lock: (Time Lock Feature)
Time Lock gives you all the benefits of a bank level high security time lock system with built in audit. You can control when your safe can be accessed, by whom and download access logs from the lock telling you who opened the safe, when, and how long the safe door and lock was open. Up to 30 holidays can be programmed that override the normal schedule. Automatically adjusts for daylight saving time. We can even program a time lock schedule that restricts specific people’s access.
• Audit Trail: (Alarm Integration And Advanced Lock Feature)
A powerful feature of many digital locks is an audit trail which can be easily downloaded to a USB drive once you have the correct download code. This tells you who opened the lock, for how long, time, date and if there were any attempts to open the lock with an incorrect code. The standard audit trail is 1000 events. An audit trail can also be downloaded remotely directly from a compatible alarm system using an alarm module bolt position interface.
• One Time Code: (Alarm Integration And Advanced Lock Feature)
Easily retro fitted onto most existing safes or strongrooms, a One Time Code system (OTC) means that opening and closing is controlled by single use codes generated by a certified monitoring station after the identity of the person requiring access has been verified. The person accessing the safe or strongroom also requires their own personal code and a special key fob that records the opening and closing state of the lock. Time and date specific one-time codes can be issued in advance by the monitoring station for use within a 15-minute window, weeks, or months in advance.
