Hollon Safes

Hollon Safes

We have just started carrying the Hollon Safes on our site. I’ve known about them for a long time however, they have always been a little more expensive than similar brands like Cobalt Safe or Gardall Safes.  That is until recently.  In the spring both companies had a huge 30% increase in wholesale prices.  Well, that made the Hollon Safes a much better deal.

Quality of Hollon Safes has always been a little better than similar type safes made from other manufacturers.  They have a tendency to put in more bolts in their safes. Take for instance the Cobalt SB-02c it has 3 bolts on the door opening side and 3 fixed bolts on the hinge side. (Gardall model FB-2013 is the same as the SB-02c) However, when you open the Hollon Safe HS-685 you see three bolts on the door opening side, 1 bolt going into the top, and another going into the bottom. PLUS a 1 inch thick locking bar that goes from top to bottom.  That is the thickest hinge side locking bar in the industry that I am aware of.

Safes Lock: Notice that Hollon Safe is equiping ALL thier safes with a Group 1 Electronic lock.  They have moved away from lesser secure Group II dials that other manufacturers are using.  The CE Digital lock comes with “LockOut” technology that has a time delay feature and is activated if the wrong number is entered more than 3 times. The lock will reset after 10 minutes for correct code entry. Did I mention is was a High security Group I lock? This is much more secure than a dial as dial can have a “Safe Dialer” machine hooked to it and automactically dial open the safe within hours!  This keypad also has an 8-bit micro processor chip with NON-Volitale memory. It maintains customer code even without batteries. Your secret code can program with 4-16 digits. (more code options) Its also free to change the code on when ever you want. Unlike dials that require a locksmith to change the combination. Cost is around $75 each time you want to change the code.  Many people ask me if a dial will outlast a keypad in a fire.  Both the dial and the keypad is ruined after a fire.  Keypads are also not suseptable to “drifting” like a dial will. (Drifting is when a dials code gets changed through use. The code maybe 25-50-75 and then it shifts and becomes 26-50-75.  But the dial doesn’t tell it shifted. You just can’t get into the safe one day)

Popular brands of Dials are Sargent & Greenleaf or LaGard.  Both established themselves as leaders in the field and were considered long lasting and made in Kentucky.  However, both companies have since been sold and both companies now make thier locks in the “eastern part” of the USA known as China.  I have found these Chinese dials to not be up to the original manufacture quality.  These locks have a nasty reputation for drift and wearing out due assembly quality and parts.  However, if you speak with your local locksmith he may not be aware of the changes and he may state that “These dials will last forever”.  (Do you know of anything mechanical that lasts forever?  Me either.) 

To wrap things up Hollon Safes are really offering a superior quality safe and has done more to protect their customers than most competitive safes.  Check out their 2 Hour Fire & Burglary Safes.

The Importance of Home Security Safes

Throughout history there has been an enduring need to protect irreplaceable possessions from theft and the devastating effects of fire. In the Middle Ages merchants constructed treasury safes made of oak conjoined with iron as a repository of security. With technological advances, today’s safes have tempered steel walls with fire-retardant material interspersed within the walls, affording a deterrent to theft and fire, unimaginable just a century ago.

A basic locking cabinet can secure valuable papers or personal items but it will not protect them from theft or fire damage. Only safes can provide a superior level of protection for documents, jewelry, guns and personal items. Computer data that would be difficult or impossible to duplicate if lost. Home and business security systems require the addition of security safes to eliminate the possibility of data and document loss due to fire and climate disruptions. Home security, office management, data storage, gun safety and fire protection are essential requirements within a domestic or commercial setting. A security safe designed for specific needs can meet the varied necessities of home, business and office requirements.

The proliferation of home robberies are classified as “snatch and grab.” The intruder invests approximately 3-5 minutes within the home. The very presence of a home security safe is a deterrent to such robberies. Any additional time invested within the home increases the odds of apprehension. Theft prevention and climate control management have rendered security safes a requirement for any home, office or business. The needed security afforded by home and business safes completes any existing security control system. Home security safes offer protection of personal documents, jewelry and irreplaceable items. Home safes are a major deterrent from robbery and provide needed security from fire and climate changes.  ValueSafes offer a large inventory of wall safes, floor safes, fire safes, gun safes, and electronic digital safes. Home safes are a perfect compliment to any home security system.

As trust in the banking industry has waned, coupled with an overall lack of confidence in the economy, many investors are acquiring home and business safes to protect valuable documents, jewelry and currency. The current economic anxiety has engendered a desire to maintain contact with one’s personal possessions. As the economic recession deepens the need for personal and business security increases. The vacillating stock market and eroding real estate values have diminished confidence in these avenues and increase the desire for home, office and business security. Security and safety is now redefined as the most basic of all needs, the home and family.  ValueSafes was founded on the principle of providing our customers with the highest quality safes at the lowest possible price. Unto these goals we strive to meet our customer’s security needs. Please consider our inventory of commercial, business, office, home and hotel safes as a welcome addition to any business or home environ.  ValueSafes offers great prices and superior service on all our safes.
