Hide a safe or conceal a safe

by | Jun 18, 2013 | Advice & Tips

I am often asked “where is the best place to hide a safe ?”  As I have explained in previous posts its far more important that the safe can withstand an attack in the event that criminals find it. Rather than hoping that they wont or cant find the safe. So the fly in the ointment is, the stronger or higher the quality of the safe the thicker the walls. Conversely the thicker the walls the larger it is on the outside. Manufacturers generally don’t make small high grade safes. This is because the inside becomes way too small to be useful. As such the smallest high grade safe I have seen has an external depth of about 550mm. With most cupboards having a 500mm this depth measurement the problem can be tricky to resolve.
Pictured below is a cupboard we installed into a custom made cabinet that is designed to hide the safe or disguise the safe so criminals might miss it. The idea being they would miss it if were hurriedly ransacking the office. This cupboard is made to look like a set of drawers and it has a small pin which locks the front giving the impression its a set of locked drawers. It is in a shop in the Brisbane CBD and it shows what a little creative thinking can do.
We also had to come up with ways to anchor safes in cupboards. There is usually a gap under some cupboards. In this situation we so we make a special spacer that secures the safe to the concrete floor. We have answers for all sorts of tricky security jobs and we relish the challenge. So if its to conceal a safe or lock up a freight train give us a call.

I would HIGHLY recommend KGB Security. We have used them twice (so far) and... BOTH times have been a pleasure. They are extremely helpful, very professional and went above and beyond to ensure our matters were dealt with promptly. They are super friendly, easy to talk to and easily talk through steps over the phone. Their expertise was greatly appreciated!read more

Called KGB security about my heavy timber pivot door, to install a door damper... to stop it from slamming. Kel asked me to send photos of the door mechanism. He called back shortly thereafter to advise me that we have a door damper already, so no need to waste money for one. He taught me how to adjust the damper - 'tramsom closer'. It worked! My door doesn't slam any more. It only took me a few minutes and a screwdriver. He saved me lots of money. They are the most ethical and professional locksmith. I'm very grateful.read more

I cannot speak highly enough about this company!I have an old fireproof... cabinet that I was concerned about and gave KGB a call for some professional advice.Not only did I get information on the issue at hand, but I even got the contact number for someone that worked at the now long deceased company who could give me more detailed information.I would recommend them for anything to do with safes, cabinets or anything to do with security!read more
