Most people have a general idea that different safes have different levels of security but do you truly know what each means? These ratings can be used to give you an idea of how each level of security is different from the rest. Remember, most burglars and thieves don’t possess the necessary skills to defeat a safe therefore, ratings apply to a trained professional that actually knows what they’re doing. Below, we’ve ranked the different levels of security. In the high security safe world, the first is considered to give you the most protection, while the last although still secure, will give you the least.

When looking to purchase a safe, you may consider upgrading your steel, fire, or burglar/fire safe to one of the above high security safes depending upon the value of the items you’ll be storing inside. Fire safes will give you a fire rating but offer little burglar protection. Burglar/fire safes will give you both a fire and burglar rating but may not be suitable for the items you’re storing inside. Deciphering which rating is best for you can often be a challenge.
