The customer had asked us to provide a Safety Deposit Centre to fulfil the needs of his potential clients in the Leicestershire area. From the very start of the project it was obvious that the customer was aware of the potential, being involved with a local bank that offered the service and whose deposit centre was now completely full.
We provided detailed information of the available lockers and advised on the most suitable sizes to give a spread of options to his clientele. We manufactured shipped and installed a grade X EX CD demountable strong-room fully tested and certified to ECBS standards. This grade of vault offers a bank grade of protection with the added security of explosive (EX) and Core Drill (CD) certification
The vault was filled with multiple columns of our lockers with cast aluminium doors making a stunning impression to any customer. The finish is timeless. In other vaults additional lockers have been installed alongside those that have been used for 20 years and the difference is hardly perceptible. Several private cubicles were provided for customers to examine their valuable jewellery money or paperwork within the safety of the vault
All customers were registered on the system with a facial photograph and access to the vault is gained via finger biometrics and a proximity card or pin code. Finally, the locker cannot open without the use of a high security key which cannot be copied. These are supplied in duplicate in a sealed pouch to the customer when they first pay for their locker. If they lose both keys the only means of access is drilling out and destroying the lock
We liaised with Alarm and CCTV specialists to complete the security package and provided insurance facilities via a Lloyds of London insurance broker. The client was able to provide an insurance cover of £30,000 per locker for a comfortingly small yearly premium.
The cost of the project was in excess on £1,000,000. Our customers steadfast work in assessing the potential has proved itself. Within 18 months they announced they had recouped their initial investment with only 50 % occupancy of lockers. The yearly rental now provides an ongoing revenue stream

Well it’s a new year, a time for self-reflection and looking back at the year passed, what worked and what didn’t, always working towards self-improvement. Here at Phoenix Safe we have been doing the same, only instead of looking back at ourselves as people, we looked at our products, what we could do to improve and better our ranges.
And this is what we came up with, our new and improved HS range of safes!
We have ditched the plain RAL9003 in favor of a sleek RAL7024 graphite grey. Complete with contrasting Phoenix red shelves as standard. Not only are our new safes stronger and more secure than ever before, they now do it in style.
With the larger grade sizes of the HS safes they boast new and improved bolt work, this slanted edge bolt work ads a sleek and sophisticated feel to the safes, while not compromising on the quality or security of the safes in any way.
In the past we favored light construction of our HS safes, we received feedback on this from you our customers and we have listened. The new range of HS safes are all HEAVY CONSTRUCTION, giving you what you have asked for, that tougher heavier robust feel to your security safe.
At Phoenix Safe, the clue is in the name for what we are most well-known for, our fire safes, with this in mind when the redesign of the HS range started, it was apparent one thing we wanted to include. Dual Fire and High Security, that’s correct, these new improved High security safes, also have built in fire protection as standard, so when you are buying one of the new Phoenix HS range you are getting what we always want our customers to have, peace of mind. Peace of mind that your treasured valuables are not just protected from undesirable hands, but also that they are protected if the worst happens, and a fire breaks out at your premises or home.
At Phoenix we have poured our hearts and souls into the new design of this range of safes, every detail has been meticulously checked and considered, to make sure we are producing not only the best performing products, but also the best looking. There is no excuse in 2018 to not perform at our best and also do it in style.
A worrying statistic that has jumped out at us this week is that 23% of us keep our valuables in drawers and 20% keep them in a wardrobe! That’s a whopping 43% keeping items that matter most to us, such as family jewellery, watches, laptops or anything you can think of that matters to you, in locations well known as hiding places and completely unsecured.
If someone wants to break into your house, don’t make it easy for them to find what they want and leave quickly. A few weeks ago we highlighted that burglars spend an average of less than 10 minutes in a house, to grab what’s at hand and leave. So if confronted with a home safe, it provides a fantastic deterrent, and as we mentioned previously, deterrents are preventatives. Why give burglars an easy ride?
A modern home security safe is not just for the wealthy. Here at Phoenix we have products to suit every budget. It is a firm belief of ours that every home should have a safe, either to protect cash & valuables from theft or important records from fire as well as being affordable. Our home security safes can provide protection for £1,000 up to £1m of valuables.
Safes such as the Compact Home Office SS0721 Series or Vela Home & Office SS0800 Series are ideal security safes for anyone looking to protect a small amount of cash (up to £1,000) or a few valuables (up to £10,000 worth). These safes are fitted with an easy to use digital lock but they also have a key override system and each safe is supplied with 2 keys, just in case you forget the code. Having twin locking bolts and concealed hinges, these small, discreet and secure safes are an ideal solution for any home. They are also ready prepared for being bolted to the floor or wall and fixing bolts are supplied, meaning once secured, a burglar could not just pick it up and leave.
If you require a safe for insurance purposes, then we have a variety of those too. Safes certificated to latest European EN security standards, approved by the Association of Insurance Surveyors and the UK Police. Safes such as the Fortress SS1180 Series are a very affordable range of high security safes.
If you are looking to protect your important paper records, such as passports, insurance records and birth certificates or backup of your family photos stored on hard drives, DVDs or USB Sticks, then we can also recommend the Titan FS1280 Series Fire & Security Safe. This range has been tested to provide protection against fire for hour at temperatures close to 1000 degrees Celsius. As well as providing security for up to £2,000 cash or £20,000 of valuables, the Titan FS1280 Series is a very affordable all-in-one ‘Fire & Security’ safe.
Our Home Safe recommendations:
When you decide to buy a safe, you can take comfort in the fact that the value of what you want to protect, will always outweigh the cost of the safe needed to protect it.
