What Type of Safe Should I Get?

Looking to find safes in Denver or anywhere in the world?

Need to find out what kind of safe is right for your needs? Read on to learn the basics about nine different types of safes and what are their benefits for security.

Combination Lock
Combination lock safes are common and straightforward. As the name suggests, the safe opens using a combination, either on an electronic keypad or a mechanical dial.

The advantage of this solution is it remains secure even if a key is lost or stolen, but it can also be combined with a key to add an extra level of security.

However, the advantage of an electronic lock is that usually, the code can be changed if needed, unlike with mechanical combination locks.

Key Lock
Locks that are opened with a key are inexpensive and easy to use: they don’t require a password to be memorized. Also, you can give someone one-time access to the safe and take the key back afterward. However, the risk is that the key may be found by someone interested in stealing from your safe.

Time Delay Combination Lock
This kind of safe opens with a combination, but it does not unlock until a set amount of time after the combination is entered. Time delay combination locks are most often used in cash safes with large amounts of money as an extra level of theft deterrent.

Biometric Lock
Biometric locks typically operate using a fingerprint scanner. This practically eliminates the possibility of someone entering your safe without permission because they stole your key or overheard your password. Because of this, they are usually more expensive.

Card-swipe Lock
Safes that open with a card have the same advantages and disadvantages as a key, and they usually also require the user to remember an electronic combination.

False Bottom Safe
For added security, some safes offer a secret compartment in which small items can be hidden so that they can remain safe even if the safe is broken into.

Humidity Control Safe
If you are storing perishable materials or documents that may grow mold or mildew, you may want to buy a humidity control safe to prevent deterioration of your belongings. This safe will keep its contents at a sustainable level of humidity.

Bolt-down Safe
Preventing opening the safe is one thing, but what about stealing the safe itself? Bolt-down safes are designed to be attached to the floor to prevent thieves from removing them.

Water and Fire-resistant Safes
You want to protect your valuables not only from thieves but also from the elements. In the case of water or fire damage to your home, safes can keep your belongings intact. Safes have different degrees of water and fire resistance based on how long they are rated to withstand flame or flood.

These are just a few of many different types of safes, but this list should serve as a starting point to find what you need.
