Home Safes 101 | C & S Locksmiths
Many homeowners find the need to secure valuables and nothing is more secure than a home safe. A safe can also be referred to as a strongbox or coffer and is an access controlled security container used to secure valuable belongings from theft or damage, such as fire.
The first patented safe was in 1835 from English inventors Charles Chubb and Jeremiah Chubb who officially received their patent for a burglar-resisting safe. Since their introduction into the marketplace the safe has been an important part of many homes.
As mentioned above home safes are often used to protect your most precious valuables from unauthorized access. Most modern safes are accessed via combination lock however some are accessed via lock and key or digital keypad. Make sure before purchasing a safe for your home you ask how access control is achieved and whether or not your potential safe might be fire resistant.
