An underfloor safe offers outstanding security for cash and jewellery. It can be discreetly hidden from view, typically inside a cupboard, set in re-inforced concrete and covered with a mat, hidden from view. Even if a burglar discovered it, an underfloor safe is much more difficult to attack than a free standing safe of equivalent cost. When installed, the immensely strong door is recessed below floor level, making a physical attack even more difficult. A top cover plate then fits flush with the floor. Another benefit of underfloor safes is the level of insulation provided by the concrete encasement, which gives a high degree of fire resistance.
Although primarily designed for installation in a solid floor, an equally satisfactory installation can be achieved in a wooden floor, by constructing shuttering to contain the concrete.
