Fireproof Safes & Data Storage FAQs

What is a cash rating on a safe and how is it determined?

The cash rating of a safe is the amount of cash for which an insurance company will offer overnight insurance cover. Different insurers may vary their levels of cover based on other factors such as the location of the safe. Cash ratings are determined by the thickness of the door and walls, the type of lock used, and the general build quality of a safe. The higher the cash rating the more secure the safe is.
