Emergency Safe Opening And Strongroom Opening - Mechanical Locks


Mechanical safe and strongroom locks have always been prone to failure for a wide variety of reasons. Wear and tear, keys broken or jammed, levers or combination wheels jammed, a mechanical time lock movement stopped, dampness leading to corrosion, dirt, lack of maintenance or key loss are just some of the obvious issues that can lock-out a mechanically locked safe or strongroom at the most inconvenient time imaginable.

Certified Safes Ireland™ can open the majority of mechanically locked safes and strongrooms through non-destructive lock or combination manipulation (NDENon-Destructive Entry).


EN1143-1 Safe Opening And Strongroom Opening - Drilling:


Certified digital locks, while a lot more dependable, can still malfunction over time due to lack of maintenance, code loss, water damage or on very rare occasions, a manufacturing fault. As most electronic locks have anti-manipulation counter measures, targeted drilling is usually the only recourse.

Amateur safe technicians or locksmiths, inexperienced with safe and strongroom design, in particular anti-manipulation and counter drilling mechanisms, will often cause so much damage to a certified safe or strongroom’s barrier material as to render the unit ineffectual for secure storage voiding the unit’s original certification.

The European safe and strongroom standard EN1143-1 has strict rules when it comes to how an emergency safe or strongroom opening is to be performed, so complete knowledge of this standard as well as the most up to date emergency safe and strongroom opening methods is required to affect an EN1143-1 compliant emergency safe or strongroom opening.
