Churchill Bulldog CBS12 Large Capacity Underfloor SafeIf you require a really large capacity safe, but want it hidden from view then the Churchill Bulldog models are the ones to assess. There are 2 sizes – the CBS11 425mm (17”) in height from floor to bottom of safe and the even larger CBS12, which is 590mm (23”)in height  The Churchill Domestic Underfloor security safes are designed for installation underground in the home or in retail shops or petrol stations to protect cash and valuables from violent attack and burglary.
