It’s hard to ignore how much the digital world is dominating the scene as we progress further and further into the 21st century. So much data is now backed up on flash drives, portable hard drives, cd’s and the, “not yet obsolete”, magnetic tapes. This data can be anything from cherished family photographs to business records and back up tapes. These digital copies are resilient, hard wearing and fairly hard to damage. However, there is one sure fire way to ruin information stored digitally and that’s HEAT!

Whether domestic or commercial, the information stored on data media is either irreplaceable or at best, immensely time consuming to recreate. It's not the best idea to lose your customer database or financial records. Imagine all the old family cine films (ask your grandparents!) that you had converted into dvds being lost forever or all those photos of the kids through the years destroyed. Well, fear not, as there is a fantastic solution to your problem.

                                         

QE5541_Safe

 

Safes.Co.UK have your concerns covered, and then some! The Sentry QE5541 is designed specifically to protect your digital media. Probably one of the most robustly built fire safes available, the protection levels of the Sentry QE5541 are extraordinary. Independently tested, at a whopping 2 HOURS fire protection for digital media, in fires of over 1000 degrees centigrade. Digital media recovered up to 2 hours of being in a fire should be completely unaffected. After that time there is still hope of recovering the data albeit slightly compromised before the safe interior fully succumbs to the heat and the contents are beyond saving. As we all know, fires need water to put them out. Water damage can be more destructive to the property than the fire it put out. So what if your Sentry QE5541 survives the fire but ends up in a pool of water? Well not a lot is the answer. As well as being a fire safe, it is also capable of being immersed in 20cm of water for 24 hours without the contents being affected.

In addition to its protective qualities, there are some smart, user friendly, touches that really make the Sentry QE5541 stand out from its rivals. A pouch on the inside of the door easily holds a portable hard-drive which can be connected via a built in usb connection in the keypad, to a laptop for easily backing up data without having to access the safe. Handy, if you run a business and don’t want others having direct access to the safe.  The safe has an interior light and a key rack for 5 keys all secured by an advanced LCD electronic lock system with backlit keys. Capable of holding 72 cds/dvds in a purpose built organiser as well as regular files, there is plenty of room inside the 500 x 375 x 300 mm interior for your most vulnerable possessions. (External size 600 x 470 x 490 mm).  

Never worry about your digital media again.

The rapid increase in the building of high end apartments appears to be accelerating in the majority of UK cities offering the ultimate city centre living experience. Once overlooked inner city areas are now ripe for development. Where once, living in the centre of a city was seen as undesirable and the lure of the suburbs was king, the tables have now turned.

There has been a tremendous shift in recent years towards city centre living for professionals. No longer is living in the suburbs and commuting in seen as the way forward. Now people want to be in the midst of all the action, closer to work, closer to the nightlife and sporting that all important city centre address. Developers have answered the call for more city centre apartment complexes to cope with the demand. And that demand is for high quality apartments that reflect the status of the clientele moving in.

A high end complex is going to need a high end mailbox system. Not a problem if you choose The AluSlim Outdoor Mailbox System to compliment the entrance to the apartments. After all, the entrance should reflect the quality of the apartments that lie beyond the lobby. One way to achieve this is to start by installing the AluSlim system to show that this complex is a quality build all the way!

The AluSlim Outdoor Mailbox System is Italian made to exacting standards and comes ready assembled in various combinations. Each block of mailboxes is purpose made as a single structure with an outer shell. These are not single modular units fastened together as needed as is so often the option available. Starting from a single stack of 3 units, the range encompasses various increasing amounts up to 20 units in 4 stacks of 5.

The aluminium profile front door of The AluSlim Outdoor Mailbox System is protected by an anti-vandal system.

The body of each mailbox is completely painted and the outer casing is fully epoxy powder painted. As the epoxy powder paint treatment takes place after construction the mailboxes are water resistant and NO part of the assembly is exposed in any way to corrosion sneaking in. The banks of mailboxes are available in 3,4,5,6,8,9,10,12,15,16 and 20 units so any number of apartments can be covered by a single bank or combination thereof.

Depending on the development The AluSlim Outdoor Mailbox System can be installed in several ways. You may wish to wall mount them or recess them into same. Through a Railing fence or through a glass frontage is not a problem. You can even have them freestanding on a support column.

Whatever your entrance looks like The AluSlim Outdoor Mailbox System will fit in and compliment the complex. The mailbox system will look seamlessly integrated however you choose to install it. It’s the little attentions to detail that make any project stand out from the competition. Your mission is complete!

The average mailbox is a purely practical purchase that solves the problem of modern PVC doors that no longer come with a letter slot built in. Often a way of preventing heat loss but sometimes just because the manufacturer feels it detracts from the over all look they were going for with their door design. Whatever the reason, it overlooks the fact that, despite electronic communications, we still receive post on a regular basis. But who says your mailbox has to be just practical and dull?  What’s wrong with having something a little more flamboyant on your wall?

This is where The Brass Residence Mailbox comes in. It really does make a real statement when adorning the front of your house. It’s certainly going to stand out from the street. Made from polished, burnished or “cast-iron grey painted” brass, The Brass Residence Mailbox really does add that touch of class and is protected from the elements by an oven-baked varnish coating making sure your mailbox will still be looking good for years to come. What better statement to have on your house than a brass mailbox glinting in the summer sunshine. A decorative piece of Italian metalwork proudly adorning your house.

                                           

Luxury_Brass_Mailbox

Easily swallowing up A4 post, The Brass Residence Mailbox  is no mere pretty ornament. It is a capable and fully functional mailbox so what better way to ensure your mail continues to be safe and dry? No matter if you’re expecting a simple letter or your latest subscription magazine, the Residence Mailbox is going to cope with it all. Available in three stunning variations on a design classic you can choose how much you want it to stand out, from the polished brilliance of the pure brass model to the more sedate looking “cast iron grey painted” version with just an accent of brass on the letter flap. The choice is very much yours!

 

Luxury_BurnishedBrass_Mailbox                                       

The embossed crest design on the front recreates the look of post boxes from years gone by and adds to the old world charm.  The embossed detailing continues with side columns, a scroll across the door and detailed accents around the letter slot. Measuring 40.5cm in height, 25.5cm in width and 5.5cm deep the mailbox deals with large letters with ease and it could potentially hold several days worth of post so even the odd weekend away would not be noticeable to passers by.

Access to your delivered mail is via a wide door on the front that hinges downwards allowing the post to be easily extracted and comes protected by a cylinder lock with two keys. You’ll know whether or not you have received mail by simply observing through the slots in the door panel. Your post is protected from the elements as the  Mailboxis water resistant so you’re not going to end up with a pile of Papier-mâché when you come to empty it(!)

The Brass Residence Mailbox, a practical, robust and stunning looking mailbox. What more could you ask for?

The Pro First Under Floor Safe, an exclusive safe from Safes.Co.UK is the ideal solution to those who want a safe that’s invisible to prying eyes.

 

Under floor Safe Green door

 

                                    

Hand Made in England for us alone, the Pro First Under Floor Safe is the answer to those who need a safe but don’t want it to be easily discovered should a break in occur. Available in a 9” or 12” body size and 2k, 4k or 6k cash ratings the safes are ideal for the average home. The body of the safe is made from high quality 2mm steel plate with welded seams. The door is machined from chrome plated 10mm solid steel with added anti drill plates and 2 relocking devices. The door locks into a seamless solid steel collar for extra integrity. The standard sizes are in stock but because of our exclusive supply of these safes we can, if required, make a bespoke size to suit your personal requirements. We can also supply safes with round lids should you require it. These bespoke safes would, however incur extra costs and waiting time due to the complexity of construction.

The safe is best installed by a builder or an advanced DIY’er due to the work involved in making a void in a concrete floor. The safe can benefit from a free fixing kit which sits around the safe to add extra strength to the installation. The positioning of the safe is a personal choice but it doesn’t have to be “under a rug”. Consider installing the safe and then placing items of furniture over the top, a cabinet, a fridge or a settee for example. You’re limited only by your imagination as to where to place it.

 

Underfloor_Safe_Reinforcingkit

                                           

As the safe ends up in a concrete casing, the security level of the safe depends on the door. Side by side the doors look very similar but if you were to pick them up one at a time you would feel the difference in weight from the 2k to the 6k as the steel gets thicker and the lock gains more levers, and in the case of the 4k and 6k, locking bolts..

                                        

 Underfloor_Safes_Square

 

Once installed, the door is covered by a water resistant dust plate that lies flush at floor level. Simply remove the plate using the two finger holes to access the door. The safe is now hidden from view and a burglar could step over the safe many times and not realise its even there.

Because of the unique way the safe is installed, its probably the only safe that can grow with your needs. You never know what the future holds. Maybe you’ll be the beneficiary of a will and suddenly your 2k rated door isn’t enough. Rather than having to dig up the whole safe to replace it, you simply change the door. Its that simple. It couldn’t be easier to upgrade. the Pro First Under Floor Safe.

As a company we are proud to have the Pro First Under Floor Safe as an exclusive within our range of safes. The solid construction and the high security locks should make it your go to under floor safe.

More and more people these days are discovering the peace of mind of having a home safe. You’ve heard the stories time after time, “they stole my grand mothers wedding rings and they are irreplaceable” repeated on the news and social media. The days of leaving valuables in drawers and under beds is, thankfully, fast becoming a thing of the past. In days gone by, safes were confined to the wealthy but now the safe has become a necessity over a luxury.

It’s a sad fact that burglary is still rife in 2018 and its always better to be pro-active rather than re-active. An insurance company will insist on you getting a safe after a break in so why chance grannies rings being stolen before you’re forced to get a safe? Better to buy now than buy in regret later.

So, you’re in the market for a compact and sturdy home safe that is as robust as safes come. 

The PWKA Protector Duo is a front runner in this sector. Its construction provides substantial protection for your valuables up to the tune of £40,000. It even has fitted carpet to protect your jewellery from scratches and damage. Now that’s attention to detail.

Finished in 1 shade of grey The PWKA Protector Duo is stylish as well as secure. Behind the heavy 4mm solid steel door, the 8 lever key lock and hefty 20mm locking bolts there is an extra internal lockable compartment for the most expensive items, should you wish to share the remainder of the safe with someone else. This compartment is protected by a cylinder lock whilst the main safe is secured by locking bolts using the double bitted keys. The body of the safe is made from 3mm double walled solid steel and comes with a 2 year manufacturers guarantee against faulty workmanship.

So how secure is it?

Very, is the answer. Designed to be secured back AND base with the included fixings and made from 35 kilograms of your finest high grade steel the PWKA Protector Duo is not going anywhere, anytime soon. Its so secure, that on the continent it is a popular, trusted and highly recommended hand gun safe. Now that’s a safe safe(!)

 Deraat_Protector_Duo

In addition to protecting your valuables from theft, its sturdy construction will also protect against fire for 30 minutes. This really is an ideal safe for the home or office. Finished in grey the PWKA Protector Duo is a departure from the normal black associated with the majority of home safes.

As with all non-AIS safes, we always recommend you confirm the cash rating given to a particular safe will be honoured by your individual insurance company before committing to buying a safe, as they have the final say on the level of cover they will provide.

So that’s our PWKA Protector Duo safe. A perfect solution to the average households needs or a small businesses overnight cash storage problems. A good sturdy home safe that will serve you well.

Where are the car keys to your stock of motor vehicles? Chances are, they are all on little ‘L’ shaped little hooks on a wall in the office with little brown paper tags on them or little plastic cable ties telling you which is which. The same goes for repair garages. The customer drops their car off and you hang them on the wall, often in plain sight of everyone, registration numbers clearly visible.

As if anyone in this day and age needs reminding, the vast majority of cars these days are stolen by obtaining the keys as modern security methods have all but wiped out the traditional ways of stealing them. Now, whilst someone looking around your car on the driveway would draw suspicion from yourself or your neighbours, your dealership relies on people doing exactly that on your premises day in and day out. Most of these people are genuinely looking for their next car and will loiter around for quite a long time, often with nothing more than a “just browsing” response. Unfortunately, in addition to the genuine customers, there will be a fair share of those with other thoughts on their minds.

They’ve spotted the car they fancy the look of and have noted the registration number. A bit of distraction next and someone is quietly approaching the wall of keys and lifting the keys of their choice. Before you know it, there’s the sound of an engine starting and they are away. At best, you’ve just lost a valuable asset. At worst, you’ve just lost a customers car. At the very worst you have just lost any chance of claiming on insurance as the keys were easily available and insecure.

The solution is to invest in a Rottner Security Fire Key 20 EL. This robust and fire proof  key safe is the perfect remedy for making keys safe from falling into the wrong hands.

                                           

Fireproof_KeyCabinet 

 

 

Providing a safe haven for 20 car fobs/keys as standard the Rottner Security Fire Key 20 EL will protect your keys from malicious use and, if the worst was to happen, fire for 30 minutes thanks to its special fire resistant filling inside the double walled construction. The cabinet is accessed by a hefty door which has an electronic lock linked to sturdy solid metal locking bolts. Once secured to the wall by the included fixings the Rottner Security Fire Key 20 EL will ensure your keys are protected from the heat of a fire. After all, if the fire happens in the office, you are left with cars untouched by the fire but rendered useless by the loss of coded key fobs. Who wants to buy (for example) a BMW with a glob of melted plastic for a key(!) The cost involved in replacing and recoding two sets of keys for 20+ vehicles can easily run into the hundreds each! The cost of replacement car keys has sky rocketed since the introduction of key-less entry vehicles which, despite the irony, has seen even ‘average’ family cars commanding £300 for replacements.

Trust the Rottner Security Fire Key 20 EL to save you from the hassle!

When ordering online it can be easy to get a bit carried away. Suddenly you’ve got a parcel(s) coming and you’re at the mercy of the 6am – 6pm delivery window.

 You know the dilemma, you want your online order to arrive but you’re worried that it will arrive whilst you’re at work or you’ll take a 10 minute trip to the local shop and miss the delivery. There’s always a neighbour if they’re in or your delivery can be left in the porch and hope it remains there until you get home.

If this is the case in your house then you should consider a Rottner Security Parcel Keeper so you never miss another delivery ever! Once secured, your eagerly awaited items can be left safe and sound waiting for you to open it at your leisure.

REASON ONE:  Rottner Security Parcel Keeper T05766

The only question you have to ask yourself is how much do you actually order online? If it’s the occasional item our single delivery parcel keeper may be better suited to your needs. Just leave the parcel keeper unlocked in your porch or attached to a wall, and when the parcel is delivered the courier simply places the item(s) in the parcel keeper and closes the door locking the items inside.

 Small Parcel Keeper

                                            

REASON TWO: Rottner Security Parcel Keeper 1000

However, if you’re fully integrated into the online world you may be expecting items from multiple suppliers and, more than likely, multiple couriers. In that case you will need our deposit type parcel keeper. The courier simply lifts the lid, inserts the parcel(s) and closes the lid dropping the parcel(s) into the belly of the safe. The design of the lid prevents fishing attacks. As no locking of the parcel keeper lid takes place, it does not prevent the next courier leaving parcels as they just use the same technique to deposit their delivery.

 Large Parcel Keeper

 

 

 

 

I think a lot of us have seen the parcel left by a popular delivery company, where the card says ‘we have left your parcel “on the roof” ………sorry!’ and pondered where your own delivery would likely end up being left if you were out. It may be an extreme example but where would your parcel end up? In a bin? Under a bucket? Over the back gate? All of which are often used but, more importantly, also well known to opportunist thieves.

 Nothing is worse than spending all day at work, wondering if your parcel is going to be where the courier left it. It can lead to un-necessary stress particularly if its something as valuable as a mobile phone for instance. If its been delivered but gone missing, the onus of having to prove you haven’t received it will be on you. Better to know its safely contained within a sturdy, secure parcel keeper.

 So, if you’re expecting one parcel or ten, you can rest assured we have your parcel security covered with the Rottner Security Parcel Keeper range.

It's easy to be wise after the fact, but a simple reality is that people often only consider buying a home safe after a burglary. Even then its mainly on the insistence of the insurance company.

After being burgled, your insurance company will often insist on a safe being brought that is certified to an adequate amount to cover what you lost in the burglary and any future acquisitions. This takes the decision on the type of safe out of your hands as the insurance company will only be satisfied with a safe of equal or increased cash rating.

Habitual burglars are wise to all the “brilliant” hiding places you have thought of in your home. If you’ve thought of it, you can guarantee, so has the burglar. They are also very savvy when it comes to going out on the prowl. It will be very unlikely that your average domestic burglar will want to be caught “going equipped” since being career criminals, they are likely to have attracted the attention of the police before. Because of this, when they do break in, they are often after the easily pocketed items. The days of the tv and dvd being taken are now mostly history. Easily sold items, rings, watches, loose money, jewellery, phones and tablets are now the norm. A huge increase in the theft of gold jewellery is continuing to grow amongst the Asian community. When items are left lying around or in locked drawers they are easy pickings for the thief.

Depending where you’ve decided to conceal your safe in the house an intruder may not even be aware there’s a safe to find. However, if they do come across a safe they still have huge obstacles in their way. Burglars are predominantly “in and out” types. They don’t want to be spotted, disturbed or confronted. Time taken to attack a safe is more time to be discovered. In addition the noise created by trying to open a safe would certainly draw attention from neighbours or passers by. The sturdiness of the safe itself protects it from being opened with items lying around the average house. Your safe is going to do its job in your average run of the mill burglary.

 

So, you’ve been unlucky enough to have experienced a burglary, what’s next?

Well, your insurance company will have given you a cash rating for your safe. They are also going to give you conditions. These conditions must be met to get the full cover the safe offers. Lets assume your cash rating is £10,000. (£100,000 valuables) Well you just buy a 10k safe right? Unfortunately its not that easy. Did you make it easy for your home to be burgled? Was the door unlocked for example? You could buy a 10k safe but if the insurance company think your house is insecure or they are not happy with the positioning etc they could refuse to cover you for the full amount of the safes rating (unless the safe is an AIS approved safe where the cash rating is guaranteed covered by UK insurance companies)

If you decide on a 10k rated safe that does not carry the AIS mark you must discuss the make and model with your insurance company BEFORE committing yourself to a sale. An insurance company is quite within its rights to offer only 6k cover on a non AIS 10k safe despite that safe being certified at that rating.

A safe is not an everyday purchase so you want to be sure the safe you buy is going to be suitable for years of use. Make sure you consider future valuables when considering the size you need. You don’t want to be at full capacity now and have to buy a bigger safe in the future. Prices always go up so buy the biggest safe you can first time and it will serve you well.

Finally, once your safe is in your home, have it secured with the included approved fixings and stash your valuables inside.

The Elmz Module Post Box is the perfect system for multi-occupancy residences as it combines good looks with versatility.

The first thing that strikes you about the Elmz Module Mailbox is its contemporary design and clean lines, making it the ideal choice for existing and new build apartment blocks alike. Adding that touch of class and refinement to the entrance of your building, the Elmz is a compact unit but still manages to hold plenty of mail.

Measuring 125mm x 305mm x 390mm, each individual module easily swallows up A4 size mail and the retrieval is via a full width front opening door so its by no means pokey or impractical to use.

 Multi Occupancy 4 Apartment MailboxMulti Occupancy 8 Apartment Mailbox

 

Available in black or white the Elmz Mailbox makes a classy addition to any foyer. Each module comes with a cylinder lock and two keys allowing the building owner to retain access should a tenant lose a key. If a tenant leaves without returning the key, the cylinder lock can be easily changed to preserve security for the next user.

In this climate of identity theft the Elmz Mailbox will give tenants peace of mind that their post is well protected whilst it is in the communal area, whilst also preventing fraud from dubious people who frequently use communal buildings to commit offences by having merchandise and/or mail sent to an address in an apartment block and intercepting it from the doormat in areas without a mailbox system in place or from old vulnerable mailboxes before the tenant even realises their address is being used in this manner and being left at risk of being linked to criminal activity and having their address blacklisted. The only way to eradicate this is to improve the security of tenants mail.

As for the Elmz Mailbox systems flexibility, It doesn’t matter how many apartments share the communal area the Elmz system can adapt and grow as required. It enables you to work around limited or awkward wall space problems because of its endless permutations as, whether you buy individual units or in multiples of 4 or 8, the units fit perfectly together due to their flush finish and can be easily slotted together in any configuration before being fixed to the wall. All modules are separate units however you buy them, so if you need 8 but can only have them 2 high, your 8 pack can be arranged to suit.

Multi Occupancy Black Apartment Mailbox

But it uses don’t end there, the Elmz Mailbox is perfect for use as an internal mail system in the workplace. Replace your pigeon hole system with the Elmz Mailbox for more security in the office and avoid confidential paperwork falling into the wrong hands. Each module has a transparent window for flat number or name / department again granting the user flexibility to change use or tenant name with ease.

So however you wish to use the Elmz Mailbox Module System you can be sure that it will enhance the look of your building entrance and make it appealing to tenants, would be tenants and visitors alike.
