While there are exceptions, most home invaders don’t want to spend more than five minutes inside your house. If you can keep a safe hidden from view, there is a good chance it won’t be found during a robbery. Floor safes are the best way to keep safes hidden, especially since removal is so difficult should they be found. If covered with a rug or furniture, it’s likely no one would even know it was there. The LaGard FF-33 and the LaGard B2500 are both popular floor safe choices, and could be exactly what you need to protect your belongings.

A floor safe is an excellent choice for several reasons. As with a wall safe, the floor safe can ensure that your belongings are always out of sight. The LaGard FF-33 and the LaGard B2500 are both popular floor safe models that can be installed quickly and easily. They have access to the safe from a door in the top, which can be covered easily by furniture or a rug. When your safe is not visible, it is less likely to be discovered during a home invasion, and that means you are more likely to hang onto your valuable belongings.
When you purchase a safe to protect your valuables from theft, you should be aware that it may not be fireproof. While there are several models of safes available that can protect from both theft and fire, you are not guaranteed to get protection from both if you don’t specifically purchase a safe that is meant to be both theft-proof and fireproof. Before you make a floor or wall safe purchase, you should double check the specifications to ensure that you are getting the protection you think you’re getting. Finding out after a theft or fire could be truly devastating.
Most people don’t realize that a security safe won’t protect documents from fire. The materials used to make the safe actually increase heat inside the safe, which could damage important documents or media. If you hope to find something that will protect from theft and fire, you should look for a safe that is rated for both. There are other options, however. Hollon makes a line of fire safes that can be bolted to the floor. This will protect your belongings from fire, and it might just discourage thieves from taking the save with them. It’s a good compromise, but you should remember that nothing will be as effective as the real thing.
Believe it or not, more than two million home invasions occur every year. Alarm systems are quite helpful, but nothing can protect your valuables the way a floor safe can. The floor safe can be hidden beneath the floorboards or carpet in your home to be kept entirely out of sight at all times. Home invaders typically spend less than five minutes during each robbery, and that means your belongings are more likely to go unnoticed during a break in. Don’t be a statistic, lamenting the loss of your valuables. Invest in a floor safe and keep your belongings out of sight.
The most popular type of safe for the home is a floor safe, because they can be bolted to the ground and they are quite heavy. Not many home invaders will take the time to break into a safe, and they are entirely too heavy to try to remove from the home. There is another type of floor safe, too, that can be installed beneath the floor. This adds and extra layer of protections, for the safe can be completely concealed by furniture or rugs, much the way a wall safe can be concealed by artwork.
When you take the time to install a wall safe or a floor safe in your home, like the LaGard FF-33, then you should be sure to use it. It may seem like you can put off dropping your important documents or valuable jewelry inside for a few days, but it just takes a moment for things to disappear. You might think that these things can never happen to you, but they can, and they won’t wait for you to drop your things into the safe first. Keep those valuables protected, and make use of your new safe!
Studies show that most home invaders spend less than five minutes inside their target home. This means that anything you put inside a floor safe will likely remain safe, because it is not likely that any thief would take the time to crack the safe. In fact, floor safes are also easy to hide, as you can have them installed underneath the floor and cover them with rugs. It’s possible that it could go completely unnoticed. Investing in a LaGard FF-33 or a LaGard B2500 could be the wisest decision that you ever make.
Many people purchase a floor safe under the misguided notion that it will also protect the contents from a fire. The truth is that most safes that are built for security use materials that will cause the inside of a safe to reach soaring temperatures in the event of a house fire that reaches 1400 degrees Fahrenheit. You should be sure to specify when purchasing your safe, especially if you are seeking a safe that will protect valuable from both theft and fire. The safes are not created equally, and confusing one for the other could result in a devastating loss.
Not many home or business invaders are planning to spend more than a few minutes inside the target before getting out of Dodge. It is very likely that your wall or floor safe will go unnoticed by a thief. If he or she does notice the safe, the time it would take to enter the safe will discourage them from any attempt to remove the contents. Just by purchasing a LaGard FF-33 or a LaGard B2500, and making certain that you place any and all valuables inside, you could prevent the theft of your precious documents and jewelry. It’s definitely worth the investment.
