Concealing your safe

Safes are beginning to gain more and more popularity. They’re ideal if you want to keep prized possessions safe from burglars. However, just having a safe may not be enough. It’s always wise to try and conceal it, in case of it being broken into or taken, in the unfortunate event of a burglary.

TMN are specialists in providing high quality services, becoming one of the best locksmiths Northampton has to offer. We also provide security upgrades, bars grills and safes, lock opening/replacement, and property clearing. Since our establishment in 2010, we have accumulated much knowledge on the best ways of concealing safes.

So here’s a few ideas for you to consider:

Mount it in the wall – This is one of the easier options, especially if it’s small enough to fit in the wall. Bigger safes can still be concealed well, but it can be more difficult. Once it’s inside the wall, it can be covered with a painting or a bookshelf for example.

Hide it in the floor – Similar to hiding it in a wall, if it’s small enough it can snugly fit in between two floor joints. Larger safes will require more planning, and will perhaps involve a structural engineer. Once installed, you can cover it with tile, carpet of hardwood flooring.

Camouflage – This method is ideal for smaller safes, as they can be hidden behind utility appliances such as a washing machine. They can also be housed within cupboards with clothes and other things.

Disguise it – The best type of safe is specially designed to look like something else. Hidden in clear view is a sure way of tricking the most expert of thieves.
