Wall safes get most of their security from being hidden

Wall Safes

It’s important to remember that most wall safes are not as ruggedly constructed as free-standing safes.  They can’t use the thicker materials because they have to fit in the space between walls and studs.  So most of their security comes from being well-hidden.  Behind something against the wall in the back of closet is a good location.   Also, rather than mounting the wall safe to studs in the wall, you might consider having it concreted in place.

Another fact to keep in mind about wall safes is they are not made using fireproof construction – if you added the extra insulation necessary to make a wall safe fireproof, there wouldn’t be much room left to store anything.  As long as you keep these facts in mind, wall safes can be an effective deterrent against burglars.  For more information on wall safes.
