What Do You Need To Install A Floor Safe?
When it comes to storing one’s valuables and precious items away, there’s nothing better than having a safe for such protection. But what can make that safe even better is having a one tucked away from plain sight. Not only does this make it harder for any uninvited ne’er-do-well to pilfer your goods, but it feels cool to have a secret place you keep your stash. Like you’re Batman or something… Okay, maybe not, but you get the idea of safes kept tucked away. So why not have one hidden in the floor?
In the ground, floor safes are not as popular as they used to be, but are certainly the favored types of safe by salesmen who specialize in safes. Per your design layout, floor safes can be very hard to find, making them perfect for their sole purpose. A typical floor safe installation from professionals should only take a skilled installer between 3 – 6 hours.
Here’s what else you should know about your future possible safe:
First off, keep in mind that the bigger the floor safe you want, the larger the hole you will need to make in your floor. Then you need to purchase the right safe to be installed into the floor. But the most important thing is location, location, location. Where will you choose to have the safe installed? Try to avoid locations where there may be pipes underneath, so don’t even think of the bathroom. Floor safes have been installed in wardrobes, under stair cases, under beds, closets, etc. Most will recommend the center of a garage to be the perfect area. Think of it, place a rug or oil drip tray over it, and ouila, a criminal in a hurry won’t even think of the safe being in the garage.
Always do extensive research before installing a floor safe yourself. Call a professional to get ratings on the best safes to use and what necessary preparations to make before installation. Hide away your goods in the floor where it’s safe for sure.
