Burton Watchman 9 Open Cons

  • No tested protection from fire or water (although concrete will give heat resistance)
  • Extra cost involved in installation – usually a local builder can easily install
  • As with all underfloor safes there is no official tested insurance cash rating
  • Not as user-friendly as floor mounted safes (a lot of kneeling down if used daily)

The Burton watchman ABP 9 Underfloor home security safe is primarily designed for the business market such as petrol stations, 7-late shops, betting shops, car rental companies for storing car keys overnight, but is also suitable for home use, where the safe is required to protect cash and jewellery from physical attack. There is also a larger model, the ABP 12, which is available as above or with a Deposit tube for depositing cash without the need to open the door. This feature obviously adds to security in a retail environment.
