Great day at the Security Institute’s State of Security Event. Our Access Control stand looks great in the exhibition area.
Insafe exhibited at the IfSec 2016 show last week which was held at Excel, London. It was a very successful three days with many existing customers visiting us and plenty of potential customers coming onto the stand to see our range of Safes, Safe Locks and Services as well as the new line of Access […]
We are all proud at Insafe that The Security Institute (SyI) recognised the contribution of Insafe and Alan Bullock (CEO and Founder) for years of support towards the Institute, and it’s events, which held a presentation of appreciation at Westminster Abbey on 19 August 2015.
Insafe are proud to say we will be exhibiting at IFSEC 2015. We will have a large stand to showcase our latest range of safes, safe locks and access control systems and will have our safe engineers at hand to give demonstrations on the latest security technology. Would be good to see you there, Ryan […]

Almost two months after the devastating raid at Hatton Garden Safe Deposit, police have made a number of arrests.
Following the daring Hatton Garden vault raid over the Easter bank holiday weekend many are reconsidering how to protect their treasured possessions.
The raid has effected many people and businesses, from private individuals who have lost personal treasures, to craftsmen and retailers in the jewellery trade who use safety deposit boxes to hold their valuable stock. And even those who’s possessions were stored in the vault’s deposit boxes but were not stolen are still not able to access it while police investigations continue.
Many banks including Barclays HSBC Lloyds and TSB have decided to wind down their safe deposit box service whilst others such as Metro Bank are increasing the cost by up to 50%. Nat West only offer the derive at a few branches and their is often quite a wait to get one.
Contrary to popular thought the history of safes is very interesting, especially to us. The first safe actually belonged to Pharaoh Ramesses II back in the 13th century BC and it was the ancient Romans that first fixed lugs in the safe locks used.
You will see from the excerpt below a basic history of safes, and how they have evolved from the wooden locking safes, to the incredibly secure systems we use in business and at home today.
Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s InSec at the Tower of London and for helping make it such an amazing day, we could not have done it without your support.
And, a huge thank you goes out to our brilliant speakers. All the presentations were engaging, entertaining and informative.
