Why Should I Buy a Floor Safe? FAQ’s & All the Basics You Need to Know


If you’re searching for a safe to keep your belongings secure, then a floor safe might be perfect for you. Below, you’ll see some frequently asked questions that tell you everything you need to know about floor safes before you buy: 


What is a floor safe?

Unlike other safe options, a floor safe is unique as it is specifically designed to be embedded in your flooring. They’re sometimes called underfloor safes, and they usually go into the concrete foundations of your property. They aren’t ideal for protecting items from fire damage, but they do possess some features that make them a worthy purchase.


Why should someone buy a floor safe?

If you want a genius way of hiding your valuables, then a floor safe is arguably your best bet. It can be set into the floor and easily covered by a rug or piece of furniture. This shields it from the naked eye, making it harder for people to find than a standard safe. If someone breaks into your home, they’re not likely to find a floor safe as it’s so easily concealed. 


Plus, even if someone does find the safe, there’s not a lot they can do about it. The door is near enough impenetrable, and it’s stuck into the ground. So, they can’t even carry the safe out to try and dismantle it later on. 


A floor safe is also an excellent idea if you have limited space in your home for a regular home safe. Seeing as it’s fitted under the floor, it won’t take up any extra room in your house. 


What to consider when buying a floor safe?

Here are some of the typical considerations to take into account when buying a floor safe: 


  • Size: Most floor safes are quite large and can store many items. Think about how big of a safe you need before you buy – this can help you save a bit of money. 
  • Security: Obviously, the critical concern is the security of the safe. This can be measured by looking at how thick the walls and door are. The thicker the better, and this is easily shown by the weight of the safe. Heavy safes are made out of very robust materials, so you know they’ll keep everything secure. 
  • Ease of access: How easy is it to get into the safe? If you need to evacuate your home or take something out, then you want to unlock it quickly. As such, check the lock options to find one that’s easy to use. 
  • Installation: Where can you install the safe in your home? Make sure you have a suitable area of flooring for your safe to be fitted into. 


What do floor safes cost?

Floor safes can be quite expensive because of the installation involved in them. But, like all safes, the price fluctuates depending on the quality, size, and so on. Realistically, a good quality floor safe will set you back a few hundred dollars. 


What’s the difference between a cheap floor safe & a more expensive one?

Expensive floor safes are constructed out of better and thicker materials, making them harder to penetrate. You may also get waterproof ones, though this is rare. Cheap floor safes don’t give you peace of mind as they’re usually easier to break into. It makes more sense to invest in an expensive option if you want to be sure that your items are protected.
