Floor Safes, the Hidden High Security Safe of Choice for Drug Dealers.

May 24th, 2008

Isn’t that a cool headline? I thought it was a real attention grabber and I will explain here in a moment. But before I do that I want to talk about what to look for  when searching safes and trying to decide about which safe will get you the best protection for the best price.  I have found from Wall Safes, Fireproof Home Safes, Fire Safes & Burglary Safes, Biometric Safes, Fingerprint Safes, Security Safes, and Depository Safes like Drop safes.  I personally think that Floor Safes are one of the best Safes for home or business and I’ll tell you why.

First you can purchase B-Rated floor safes for very affordable prices.  As a matter of fact B-rated floor safes are the most affordable type of B-rated safe in the industry.  If you are new to looking at safes you are probably asking yourself “Why a B-Rated safe? What makes a safe B-Rated anyway?”

Underwriters Labratory (UL) assigns a B-rating to burglary safes.  They need to meet a certain set of standards such as a minimum of 1/4 inch steel on the body.  Half inch steel in the door with drill resistant hardplate.  Group II lock or Group I electronic keypad.  Must also be able to hold up to a minimum amount of crowbar and sledge hammer attacks.  But becarefull, just because it has a UL listed on the label doesn’t mean it passed their B-Rating test. It could stand for something else about the safe such as the lock.

Once installed in concrete you get several benfits. Like fireproofing from the concrete wrapped around the safe.  It is hidden and covered metal plate so you can roll carpet or a rug over it.  Staying hidden is a key security component because “out of sight is truely out of mind”.   This way a thief can’t even start to break into it. 

Second is, if they do find it. Breaking into one is next to impossible.  I have several manufactures that tout their floor safe doors have NEVER been breached in a theft attempt.  Thats impressive to me and it should be reassuring to you.

The reason floor safes are the choice safe for drug dealers is so they can hide cash and their drug of choice in a floor safe.  Drug sniffing dogs have a very difficult time sniffing through all the steel, concrete, and carpeting.  The police just can’t locate the safe.  Now if a drug dog and police can’t find the safe, and they are looking for it. Just think what a thief will find and he is only going to search by himself in a 3-8 minute period!

Before you get too excited, yes, there is a negative side to floor safes. That is if you want to install one in a slab that has already been poured, its a lot of work and very messy.  I actually installed one in drug dealers house before he went to prison.  He took my receipt and his reciept and burned it on the driveway.  Vowing me to silence.  I have deleted that job from my computers and mind and to this day I don’t even remember the location or the guy.  (Don’t want too either)
