Safes for Jewelers: What to Consider Before Buying

on Mar 15, 2017 6:05 PM

Buying a jewelry safe isn't an everyday venture for business owners. That makes your purchase decision all the more important.

Even if you're not in the market for a new safe now, chances are you will be sometime in the near future because of increasing inventory values, capacity issues as the result of changing locations, or maybe because you feel that your exposure to burglary has increased and you want more protection.

Based on these situations, safes for jewelers often come with specific buying criteria. Consider these factors and consult with an agent before you make a decision:

Increasing inventory levels

  • What is your current inventory level and what is it valued at?
     
  • What values do you foresee your inventory rising to in 3-5 years?
     
  • Will the safe protect the amount of peak inventory values you carry during the holidays?
     
  • What type of inventory do you carry?
     
  • What is the cubic storage capacity of the safe?
     
  • Is the inside constructed with adjustable and removable shelving?

 

Desired level of protection

  • What is the safe's UL rating?
     
  • How thick is the body of the safe?
  • How many sides have "Safe Complete" alarm protection?
     
  • Are the locks on the safe also UL-listed?
     
  • Does your insurance policy require a percent in-safe or amount left out-of-safe overnight?

 

The layout of your business

  • What are the outside dimensions of the safe?
     
  • Where will the safe be located and how will it be positioned?
     
  • Are there common walls that could expose sides of the safe?
     
  • Is your rooftop secured?
     
  • How much does the safe weigh?
     
  • How will the safe be delivered and who will set it up?

 

Because buying a safe isn't a regular purchase jewelry businesses make, it's important to consider your entire security plan. Upgrading your physical or electronic security will usually present a sizable investment and there might be other areas of your security that need more attention than your safe.

To assess the pros and cons of optimizing certain security features, Jewelers Mutual's Vice President of Loss Prevention, David Sexton, shared his advice and answered questions from jewelers like you in a webinar.

Mashin Sazi Sanati Co. is pleased to announce the development and production of the first stainless steel security system in the world with less than one second response time.
After studying and review of many robberies, this company succeeded to develop a fully automated control panel for the system. The proposed security system is equipped with motors and gearboxes and is capable of detecting any possible intrusions and respond with less than one second.
The security system has two modes of operations:
- Automatic
- Manual
Either mode initiated within a second to provide adequate coverage in terms of space and volume with no personal or property damages. The automatic mode of operation performs several tasks when activated: 1) contacts the police station, 2) starts warning lights and buzzers, and 3) sends messages to the responsible individuals.
When the security system is activated because of a possible theft, the whole space is covered. The security system starts transmitting messages as soon as an unauthorized entry of impact is detected. Only authorized individuals may enter the premises to deactivate the system and reset it.
This company offers its security system to the security companies, banks, jewelry stores, exchange houses, private properties, office buildings, and residences.
