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


Many different types of safe are perfect for protecting your belongings. A wall safe is unique, and it might be the ideal solution for you. Before you make your purchase, here are some frequently asked questions that you should find helpful:


What is a wall safe?

A wall safe is built into one of the walls in your home. You can conceal it behind paintings or tapestries, and it offers easy access. They differ from conventional safes because they are literally embedded within the wall, whereas standard safes are freestanding. 


Why should someone buy a wall safe?

Wall safes are a convenient option if you want to hide your valuable possessions in an easy to reach location. We offer floor safes as well, but they’re harder to get to as you need to crouch down to the floor. A wall safe is more convenient for people who perhaps can’t bend down that low – like the elderly. 


Not only that, but wall safes still offer a high degree of security. They can be well-hidden, keeping your items safe if you’re ever burgled. Plus, it’s almost impossible for the average person to remove a wall safe. By the time they’ve managed to get it free, the police will be at your door ready to arrest them!


What to consider when buying a wall safe?

You need to think about the following before you buy as it will help you find a wall safe that’s perfect for you: 


  • Installation location: Consider where you will install your wall safe, and if you have walls that are suitable for them. If your walls aren’t thick enough, then it might not be the right option for you. 
  • Size: Of course, you need to think about how spacious the safe will be as this controls how much you can put in it. 
  • Thickness: You need to have a safe that’s thick enough to withstand heavy blows. Wall safes can be thinner than floor ones, but they’re still strong enough to handle lots of force. 
  • Water/fireproof: Check to see if the safe is either waterproof or fireproof – ideally both! Or think about whether or not this matters to you. 

What do wall safes cost?

The cost of a wall safe varies depending on the quality. They can be more expensive than standard safes because the installation process is more complicated. Really, the price goes up as you look at the thicker and more secure safes. Usually, you should spend a few hundred dollars on a good quality wall safe. 


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

A cheap wall safe tends to be quite small and will have thin walls. You’ll find that most cheap safes save money by reducing the thickness of the materials, but this means you don’t get the same level of protection. Expensive ones are made using better materials and are often much larger and thicker. In essence, the difference is that a cheap wall safe can probably be smashed in with a hammer, while an expensive one will hold firm.
