Cash and Fire Ratings on Safes

All safes come with some sort of rating to indicate:

  • What kind of protection they provide.
  • How much of that protection they provide.

There are two main types of rating which you will see mentioned frequently: the cash/valuables rating and the fire/data rating.

Cash and Valuables Rating

The cash rating of a safe gives an indication of how burglar resistant it is. The higher the cash rating, the more secure the safe is. These ratings are generally based on insurance industry security standards. The valuables rating – sometimes called the jewellery rating – is always ten times the cash rating, as valuables tend to be more difficult to steal.
