FAQs (2)
Q. Can the safe be secured to the wall or floor?

Unfortunately, the box cannot be secured to either floor or wall since this would mean drilling through the box and therefore nullify the fire and water protection properties and also the warranty.

Q. I want to use the safe without needing the key every time. When unlocked is the safe still fireproof and can the key then be removed?

When the safe is unlocked the key can be removed and providing that the latch is closed it will still be fireproof even when unlocked.

Really good quality product This was almost exactly what I wanted. I didn't properly check the dimensions so didn't realise I wouldn't be able to get my A4 documents in whilst still inside their plastic folders. Just a word of caution for others. The box itself is great quality and heavy duty. Hasn't been tested in anger yet, but if it keeps raining the way it has over the last few days who knows! Many thanks. Would buy again.

The box is well built and although it's internal space is quite tight, it does just accomodate A4 size documents.
