Most people don’t realise that there are many types of safes. In fact many people go to Bunnings and think thats pretty much all that is available. But like anything without doing proper research you can buy something that you think is fit for purpose but ends up being the wrong investment.
We have probably 140 safes on the floor at our Coopers Plains showroom. From home safes, office safes, jewellers grade safes, Gold safes, Data safes to mention a few types. We sell less new office safes now than we did when paper records were vogue. But many Brisbane business now use “The Cloud” to keep their records. I completely understand this as we were flooded in the 2011 Brisbane floods.
Types of Office Safes
When it comes to Office Safes there are usually two types of safes to consider do you want to protect sensitive paper records or do you need to protect data. The key thing to remember here that if Data is involved in any way then you MUST go for a Data safe because the temperature level which Data can survive at is lower than Paper so you need to cater for that type of content protection as your main priority.
Data safes are also popular where business owners don’t trust the cloud and what to keep a copy of their data just in case. With the rise of Bitcoin and other digital currencies saving backups of that data is a critical key strategy to ensure you have access to that money down the track once it has turned into a profit, hopefully.
Paper starts to char at around 150 Celsius but Data which includes tape drives, hard drives, jump sticks, usb sticks, DVD’s etc. will start to deteriorate once the internal temperature of the safe reaches 50 -60 degrees.
For Home Offices a quick and easy target for crims on the lookout to make a quick buck will go for digital devices that are easy to flip, Cameras, Laptops, Smart Phones, if you are going on a digital detox weekend then making sure all of these devices are locked away could save a lot of headaches with a smart small office safe.
Of course buying a new safe is only one half of the equation. Getting these monsters in place is something we specialise in. In fact we offen get called to re-arrange safes when people change their office around.
If you need any type of safe send us a quick email & we can send you back a host of options by return email. In fact if you have ANY questions about any type of safe we are the people to talk to.
