Review - Burton Home Safe 1E

Review - Burton Home Safe 1E

How do they do it? Brexit has caused a price increase on most imported goods, but Burton Safes have blasted the opposition away with their new Burton Home Safe range.

The Burton Home Safe offers, from less than £500 delivered, an Insurance approved (AIS) thoroughly tested Eurograde 0 high security safe. This safe has a certified £6000 Insurance Cash Rating (£60,000 for valuables such as jewellery) and a Drill resistant digital electronic lock. What's the catch? Well, let's look at the detail.

  • The small size may put you off, but there are two large sizes available - very keenly priced
  • The Digital lock cannot be upgraded to a more sophisticated version with Audit control or Time Lock
  • No adjustable shelf option

All-in-all we think Burton Safes have got a winner here. Of course, there are more sophisticated safes available with fingerprint or audit controlled multi-user locks, such as the Burg Wachter Karat, but then you would have to pay up to twice the price. However, none of the other premier brands have a safe in their portfolio that offers the security and features of the Burton Home Safe 1E at such a low price.
