Commercial and cash safes from Safeguard Safes are suitable for where high-security commercial business applications are taking place – anywhere in Australia. Whether your business stores anything above $1k in cash or regularly stores over $500k in any format, you need a commercial or cash safe that can easily meet your requirements.
Our safes are used by hotel and hospitality chains, large capacity venues and many other businesses that require something valuable to be kept in a safe, whether it be jewellery, dollars or more.
Large corporate businesses especially benefit from our data storage solutions through our options for storage of sensitive company data as contained on hard drives or USB backup storage devices. Not only are these impervious to unauthorised access, but they can also withstand fire and other elements that would otherwise render your data useless.These corporate safes can be as discreet or as large you need them to be.
At Safeguard Safes, we provide our services to everyday Australians who also require a safe solution for the storage of cash, passports, wills, deeds, birth certificates, family heirlooms, and even gold.
Our home safes boast all the functionalities of our larger safes. If required, we can offer low-security simple, key safe options, or fire rated, technologically advanced, biometric structures that rival those used in large facilities. Our safe home options can even extend to the creation of a Residential Vault or Panic Room, should it be required.
We will deliver and install whichever option you choose, and you can rely on our refurbishment, maintenance, and servicing to keep your home safe operating as it should. We will ensure your safe is installed and bolted to your wall or floor or will customise it to fit on a safe stand that has been specially designed for your home and its ideal safe location. This prevents even the smallest safe from being removed from the premises.
Safeguard Safes offer a wide variety of professional high quality deposit safes to cater for all levels of security required for your business from under the counter safes for quick cash deposits to small retailers storing limited amounts of cash to the ultimate business deposit safe to deposit large amounts of cash.
If your business is dealing in cash on a daily basis then a high quality cash deposit safe has proven to be a effective way to secure and protect your cash.
You or your staff can simply ‘skim the tills’ greatly reducing cash register holdings to a minimum. Cash can then be deposited quickly and easily into the safes external deposit chute as the top of the safe, where it drops into the main safe area or into a internal lockable safe compartment. A deposit safe allows cash to be deposited whilst the safe door remains locked and secure. Access to the safes contents can then be limited to the manager therefore reducing contents accountability to one person, this is essential where cash control is vital.
A fire resistant safe has been optimized to protect its contents against fire – no matter what is contained inside, and without compromising on the usual safety requirements of a safe.
Not all fire safes are created equal, and it is very important to choose one that meets your storage needs. For example, a fire safe created to store documents will not be able to provide the same protection to Computer Data such as hard drives as paper burns at a much higher temperature than what Data gets destroyed at. You need to select a specially designed fire protection data safe for this, which we are also able to provide. You can also select a data box for your standard document protection safe for fireproof data storage and document storage in one.
With Safeguard Safes, you can find the fire resistant safe that meets your needs and your budget – in addition to the installation maintenance and servicing that we also offer all our clients, whether they be in Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney, Perth or Melbourne.
It is your legal responsibility as the Pharmacy or Medical/Veterinary clinic owner to ensure that the secure storage of Schedule 8 Dangerous Prescription Drugs on your premises complies with the regulatory requirements of the Australian Health and Pharmaceutical Law. With regular health department audits conducted by the relevant authorities to ensure this is adhered to or enforced, failure to comply may result in action being taken.
Safeguard Safes have been supplying drug safes to Veterinary Clinics, Pharmacies, most Australian Hospitals, Medical Centres, Dental Practices and Nursing Homes since 1958. We are recognised as the industry leaders in the supply and installation of drug safes, with each safe specifically designed to meet Australian Health and Pharmaceutical specifications for the secure storage of prescription drugs.
Some of our clients over the past decade include:
- Peter Mac Centre (VCCC)
- Alfred Hospital
- Austin Hospital
- New Box Hill Hospital Development
- Melbourne Hospital
- Frankston Hospital
- Sandringham Hospital
- Sunshine Coast University Hospital
We have also provided safe information to the Pharmacy Guild of Australia and the Pharmacy Board of Australia.
Our drug safes are constructed from solid, heavy duty 10mm steel plate bodies and doors, with locking provided by a high-quality pick resisting secure key, turn dial combination or digital electronic lock. All safes come fitted with removable and adjustable shelving and are provided with bolt holes for solid secure anchoring to most surfaces.
We have many models and sizes available and can custom make a drug safe to any size requested. All safes come with a 5-year warranty on the safe body and 1-year warranty on the lock, excluding freight and travel or damage caused by misuse.
Our trained and experienced staff are security registered and licensed, allowing them to work where a high level of security is required. They can also advise you on a suitable drug safe to provide maximum security for your pharmacy requirements while also recommending the most secure location for your drug safe. We can also provide a price for the supply, delivery and installation on any safes.
Safeguard Safes offers fire resistant storage solutions that can meet your storage requirements. A common concern when it comes to storing data is having a storage option that allows for both paper documentation as well as data storage devices to be protected.
This option is a cost and space effective method of storage, as it prevents you having to purchase two separate safes – one for your paper data and one for your electronic data. It also allows you to control access to all your sensitive information without having to remember multiple codes and keys.
Fire resisting cabinets are perfect for use in corporate businesses where sensitive information needs to be kept secure but also readily available. This includes legal, insurance, accounting and mortgage broker companies.
As with all our safe products, we offer on-site installation, servicing, refurbishment and maintenance services for your convenience.
When your biggest concern is damage from fire, a data safe or data insert is the answer to your problems. A data safe differs from a standard safe, in that it is designed for both security and safety in mind. These inserts are also specially created to protect data storage devices and not paper, and therefore fulfil a special purpose that cannot be replicated with other safes. Data safes are great for storing hard drives, floppy disks, USB storage devices and even server backup devices. These safes can also, in a pinch, provide a temporary place to store lower value items that need some level of security without the investment in a more high-end device. This could include items such as coupons, petty cash, and any other office item you might find necessary. Data inserts serve a similar function, except that they can be installed in other types of safes to provide protection for data without you having to buy a separate safe.
We supply office safes to all industries across Australia. Office safes can be used for multiple purposes, whether you are storing spare company laptops or sensitive company documentation. Whatever the purpose we have the solution. Our clientele require a huge range of different options of safes for all types of purposes whether it be deposit style cash safes, data protection safes (specifically created to protect hard drives and other fragile computer data), heavy duty fire rated filing cabinet safes (protecting against both fire and theft) or standard petty cash safes.
Our team of experienced sales people will work with you to assist in establishing a secure safe that will fit your requirements and meet your budget. All businesses in Australia could stand to benefit from having a secure office safe on their premises.
In addition to our standard and customised safe offerings, Safeguard Safes also regularly offers its clients special, reduced price safes and regular stock clearance sales on overstocked items, decommissioned models and more. You can expect to find these items priced to clear as we prepare to make space for newer and more advanced products to come in.
Our safe specials are excellent quality and ready for installation, and we offer a massive range including new, pre-owned or refurbished safes, so make sure that you enquire about our specials. We suggest that you contact us to discuss your safe requirements and your budget to see if we have a safe special that meets them, or even if we can find another option within our safe range that can suit your needs.
If you are in the business of supplying accommodation in Australia, then you need to offer your clients the assurance of a short term storage area for securing valuable items. You can do this by making sure that your premises have individual hotel safes available.
Allowing your guests to take their security into their own hands gives them peace of mind and prevents you from having to individually keep track of every customer’s valuables in a single, high-risk location. Safeguard Safes offers hotel safes to major hotel chains, motels, inns and guesthouses. As these safes will most likely be used in large amounts, you can purchase them in bulk at favourable prices so you can outfit each room of your establishment with one. Choose small and simple safes for entry level overnight rooms or more complex larger safes for high-end or business suites.
These safes are designed to be user-friendly so that anyone can use them without assistance. We allow these safes to have their combination easily reset with a master key and we can also issue the combination directly to the person in charge if anyone forgets or loses their access details or key.
The Government and SCEC (Security Construction and Equipment Committee) are standing interdepartmental committees responsible for evaluating security equipment for use in Australian Government departments and agencies. The SCEC is required to report to the Attorney General’s Protective Security Policy Committee, which was established by the Australian Government to develop and enforce guidelines for protecting of local governmental resources.
Only certain models of safes are SCEC endorsed and have undertaken strict testing required to be classified and approved for SCEC endorsement. These safes are used in government and defence contracts and agencies as they have been tested by the Government and SCEC Committee and found to meet their strict regulations.
SCEC safes are given a Class grade of A, B or C and are regularly tested for their compliance. Safeguard Safes are qualified to install, open, service and repair all Government and SCEC endorsed safe products, including filing drawers, key custody safes, high-security safes and more.
Keys or cards provide access, this means the security of these items is vital for a lot of industries. Safeguard Safes has options for the storage of keys or swipe cards in safes specially designed for this purpose. You can store house keys, automotive keys, fobs and high-security keys for any purpose. This is a useful option for places like hotels that need key storage to house and protect keys and fobs as well as car dealerships or Councils that need to store dozens of car keys and high-security master keys respectively.
Many clients are not aware that there are safes created for the purpose of storing these specific items and instead opt for poor quality thin steel cabinets that can easily be penetrated. We offer our clients standard low budget low-security key storage which acts as a great deterrent in office environments or any place where the keys are not extremely valuable and the level of security needed is not high. Alternately, our high-security heavy duty style cabinets provide serious protection against burglary attacks and can house 100's of keys if needed. These safes let keys be hung on internal hooks with removable hanging boards and removable sections. This provides the convenience of being able to carry large amounts of keys around if needed.
Safeguard Safes stock and supply a small range of gun safes for the protection of guns. If you have a gun or rifle on your business or personal property, then you should ensure you have the necessary means to store it safely and securely. We stock high-quality rifle safes and pistol safes that are secure against possible theft. These safes are in full compliance with government regulations and come standard with a minimum One Year Warranty. Some have warranties up to 5 years with 2 years on the actual locks.
To get the best out of your gun safe, allow us deliver the safe to your property and have it installed by knowledgeable and skilled technicians who know what they are doing. Alternately, if you are not sure what particular safe would best meet your gun storage needs then contact the team at Safeguard Safes today and we will be happy to discuss your options with you.
When you need an extra layer of security, then you should consider a floor or wall safe. This Safeguard Safe product differs from others because it needs to be specially fitted and installed in a floor or wall area. It is much more difficult to remove a safe when it is embedded in concrete. Most of these kinds of safes having flush fitting entry points, are easy to conceal and incredibly discreet.
With three sides of a floor or wall safe protected by thick walls of concrete (or a standard cavity brick wall) most products of this kind come with an automatic fire rating of at least one hour when fitted on ground level, and are also water resistant in certain situations. If a safe is fitted into an upper level the level of fire protection will vary according to the type of surface surrounding it as well as the type of safe.
Installing a floor or wall safe requires specialist knowledge, as no two environments will be exactly the same. We recommend that you allow us to deliver and install your floor or wall safe so that you receive the full level of protection a properly fitted floor or wall safe offers.
SECURE, RETAIL COMMERCIAL SAFES
Our commercial safes are in high demand with several retail chains across Australia, including metropolitan areas such as Victoria, Queensland, and New South Wales.These safes have been optimised for the unique needs of retailers, where a high cash volume on the premises is a daily reality and robbery, burglary and internal theft is a constant concern. Here, an investment in a high-quality commercial or cash safe more than pays for itself as it is used over time to keep one’s daily assets secure.
Our discreet retail safe options include floor and under-counter safes. Cash management Safes are best for retailers who need to make frequent cash and coin deposits and a mailbox or deposit slot safes are suitable for retailers who need to allow staff members to make frequent deposits, without providing access to casual and low-level employees who often handle the cash.
SELECTING A HOME SAFE
The type of home safe you choose all depends on your safe storage needs and budget. We have safes for less than $200 as well as those that exceed $5,000 (depending on the functions required). We are trusted stockists of the Guardall, Burg Wachter, Chubb, CMI, Diplomat, and Yale brands. You can select a key, digital, combination, biometric or key locking mechanism. Each home safe comes with a Fire Rating (providing the amount of time in minutes the safe can withstand fire) as well as a Cash Rating (the maximum value in Australian dollars that the contents of the safe can be insured for).
SELECTING A DEPOSIT SAFE
All our new & improved deposit safes have anti-fishing devices included on all models to prevent removal of deposits once deposited into the chute. On various versions of the digital locking models a self-locking latch automatically locks immediately when the safe door closes. This greatly reduces the chances of staff leaving the safe open.
Our commercial grade deposit safes are the preferred choice by many leading businesses around Australia including financial institutions, retail chain stores, major banks, credit unions, government, police and defence departments, and many city councils.
Our staff have the experience and knowledge to provide safe advice on the most suitable deposit safe to meet your needs whilst also recommending the most secure location for your safe and also provide that all important information on the best method to anchor the deposit safe down to give it the highest level of protection.
We also offer a professional safe delivery and installation service, conducted by experienced, accredited and licensed safe technicians who have the skill and expertise to provide such a service based on years of experience to clients with similar safe needs as yours. Don’t put your security at risk, don’t use a unlicensed safe company, make sure you call Safeguard Safes, a name you can trust.
Safeguard safes offer a wide variety of high quality deposit safes to cater for the level of security required for your business, from under counter safes for quick deposits to small retailers safes to store limited amounts of cash to high security business safes to deposit large amount of cash offering maximum protection during and outside business hours.
CHOOSING YOUR RESISTANT SAFE
If you are not sure which fire safe is best suited to your needs, you can contact us today to discuss your options. We stock the Guardall, Yale, Diplomat, Chubb and CMI range of fire safes. As a general rule, most fire safes should provide a minimum of half an hour of protection against fire – although our highest fire protection available is 2-3 hours.
We recommend that you take into consideration your location to the nearest fire station (as well as how soon you can reasonably expect to get help in case of fire) when choosing a level of fire protection for your fire safe.
We have cash rated fire safes ranging from 10 000k to 1 000 000 of various sizes and shapes. If you are looking for more information on our fire resistant cabinets or fire resistant data safe/data insert, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
GOVERNMENT REGULATION COMPLIANT DRUG SAFES
Please ensure that you contact your local government to confirm the exact compliance regulations in your area as these change from state to state and differ depending on the amount of drugs being stored in the safe. For further clarification you can also contact our professional team of trained staff for confirmation and information.
Most of our government compliant drug safes are constructed from a single layer of 10mm mild steel plate with continuous welding of all joints. A full-length steel lock keeper bar is welded on the inside of the cabinet. A full-length steel bar is also welded to the inside of the cabinet on the hinge side, acting as a tamper-proof recess dog bar. When the cabinet door is closed it is flush with the body of the cabinet and has a clearance around the door of no more than 1.5mm. The cabinet door incorporates a hardened steel plate at the site of the lock attachment, protecting the lock from drilling. Our Ratner Drug Safes are fitted with a German-made six lever pick resistant lock.
ACCESS CONTROL CAPABLE DRUG CABINET SAFES
Access Control Capable Drug Cabinet Safes come fitted with a standard key operational lock. Access control modifications and upgrades are a unique and specialized concept and are priced according to individual specification. In addition to offering standard key and keypad operated safes, we are proud to introduce a new concept in which these safes are manufactured, allowing them to be commissioned into any new or existing electronic access control system. Our team can upgrade any existing old style key operated safes into this new generation fully monitored access control electronic operated safe.
It is important for these safes to be able to be integrated into existing Hospital A-Control Systems, as most major institutions need full control over their safes due to drug theft. Our team works together with these organisations to develop a better way of controlling and monitoring safe entry that makes all individuals accountable each time they enter the safe. This significantly decreases overall drug disappearance and theft.
We supply the full range of Ratner Dangerous drug storage safes, which are manufactured to set sizes but we can manufacture them to any size required as well as set them up to work with access control.
SELECTING YOUR FIRE RESISTANT CABINET
We sell 1 and 2-hour fire resistant filing cabinet safes and they can come in 2, 3, 4 drawer options. These can be used to store standard A4 documents and can also include a specialised data insert boxes to protect hard drives, disks, CDs, USBs, and other computer accessory storage devices. These cabinets also come with a security rating that allows you to store low to medium value items for your peace of mind. Choose from a Chubb, Diplomat or Locktech brand cabinet, with a fire rating of 30 minutes to 120 minutes. Our wide range of prices ensures that you will find the perfect fire resisting cabinet for your budget.
“I have always felt it’s better to be safe than sorry, which is why my law firm uses a fire resistant cabinet to store all our confidential documents. I know that I am the only one that can access the documents, but it’s really convenient for me to have it on the site too. When there was a small office fire in the next door building, I felt safe knowing that if the fire reached my office, I would have the time to save my files.”
SELECTING A DATA SAFE OR DATA INSERT
As with all our safes, we offer a wide variety of sizes and brands to meet your data security requirements. Due to the level of protection required by a data safe or data insert, the walls of the safe can be up to 300mm thick on the inside. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you check the internal dimensions of your selected data safe or data insert against what you intend to store it in before you finalise your purchase. Choose between the Chubb, CMI or Diplomat Safe brands, which offer protection ranging from 60 minutes to 120 minutes. Our smallest safe’s dimensions are 412 x 352 x 433, while our most spacious model dimensions are 1685 x 1200 x 720. If you are unsure of which safe will best meet your data storage needs, contact us today.
SELECTING AN OFFICE SAFE

“I am a lawyer and my data on paper and in digital files is my entire work. If anything happens to that data I would be in deep trouble. I contacted Safeguard Safes a few months back through their website and the next day someone was in contact with me, ready to assist me. I don’t really know much about what safes can do but they explained to me the fire ratings and what I need. I picked a great safe and it really gives me peace of mind.”
“I get all my safes for my various office locations from Safeguard Safes. I have done so for years. They are the only place I really trust to offer me a safe special that I know is of a really good quality. Just because you aren’t buying a brand new safe doesn’t mean you are willing to put up with poor quality. I know that if I select a pre-owned or refurbished safe from Safeguard Safes it will perform as expected as long as it needs to. I outfit various different types of offices with safes. No two offices are the same and there is never a one-size-fits all solution. Safeguard Safes recommends the ones that will work within my budget and needs and not the most expensive one.
In the past I tried to go with other safe providers just to see what is out there. All I can say is that I always come back to Safeguard Safes. Once you get used to the excellent service it’s hard to go anywhere else.”
SELECTING A HOTEL SAFE
Safeguard Safes hotel safes are built to accommodate the most commonly stored items with ease, such as laptops and hard drives or jewellery and keys.

“Getting an SCEC endorsed safe is a pretty complex affair. I learnt the hard way that if you go with someone who doesn’t know what they are talking about it can have a very negative consequence on your business functions. Don’t take a chance like I did. Go with Safeguard Safes in the first place.”
SELECTING A KEY SAFE OR KEY CABINET

“In my line of work I need to own a gun. Even though I don’t use it often, I need to have it near me. So I need some place to keep it safe. A Safeguard Safe product helps me. I can keep my weapon on my premises but when I leave at night, I know it’s locked up tight and safe. It’s a safe area but I don’t want to take any chances with it. I liked that Safeguard Safes delivered the safe to my door and I have made the appointment to get it serviced. When that happens, they will come to me to do it which is a real time saver when you are a busy person. I am now thinking about getting another safe from them for my home because of my great experience with them.”
SELECTING AND INSTALLING A FLOOR/WALL SAFE
Safeguard Safes floor safes are best fitted before a concrete slab is poured during the process of building new constructions. This allows us to prepare the floor properly. We can supply, fit and install any size floor safe into any floor (including timber and concrete floors) but unlike installing a free standing one this will be a large scale project that must be planned carefully to avoid inconvenience, wasting time and wasting money. In these situations, the floor safe is affordable, with most of the cost being incurred in the installation process. There is no ‘one size fits all’ process to this so we suggest you contact a member of our team to discuss your unique situation.
