What must a safe be able to endure?

Test procedure of the ESSA gives precise definitions of resistance grades

FRANKFURT/M. – April 2009. Everyone who buys a safe wants to have a dependable safe which withstands every attack. With many models, however, one will try in vain to find reliable information about their actual resistance. This is completely different with ECBS-certified products. The blue certification mark of the European Security Systems Association (ESSA) informs at one glance about the individual resistance grade category. Before that, these safes must provide proof of their quality in precisely defined test procedures.
Cheap products are flooding the market; often such offers sound very promising. In the event of an emergency, however, most of them will miserably fail – but then it’s already too late for the owner. In contrast to the manufacturers of those countless no-name products, the manufacturers of certified safes must provide proof that they can keep their promises of security. So for the end user, the blue ECBS certification mark is a guarantee of security.
The resistance grade shown on the certification mark is proof that the products have undergone massive attack tests with the latest burglary tools. It also documents that they have passed an anchoring test. An important aspect – safes weighing less than 1000 kilograms must be solidly anchored in the wall or the floor. For safes with particularly high security demands, the repertoire even includes tests with explosives or a test with the diamond core drill. If the “burglary experts” at the neutral testing laboratories succeed in cracking a product, it will not be granted an ECBS certification.
The ESSA issues certificates for safes of the resistance grades 0 to VI in accordance with the European Standard EN 1143-1 and, furthermore, for secure safe cabinets of the security classes S1 or S2 in accordance with EN 14450. The standards set out detailed attack tests with precisely defined minimum requirements for every resistance grade. Users will find a product locator with information about the manufacturers of safes on the homepage of the ESSA where, in addition, details about the recommended insurance sums for the different resistance grades are given: www.ecb-s.com.
