Safes for Home or Business

Safes are typically grouped into “Fire Safes,” “Burglary Safes,” and “Gun Safes.” Fire safes are designed primarily to protect your valuable papers from damage by fire. In most parts of the country, a fire department will have water on a fire within a matter of minutes. UL-listed fire safes are often tested to two-hours in a simulated house fire, which is ample protection. While no safe can guarantee to be “fire proof,” today’s fire safes offer excellent protection for your valuable documents. Quality fire safes will have group-2 combination locks and offer some measure of protection from forced entry, but are NOT considered burglary resistant.

Burglary resistant safes undergo vastly different testing and must meet different criteria before labeling. Gardall Safe Co. has a line of burglary/fire rated safes that offer a strong combination of both burglary and fire protection. Come by The Key Shop and see our safes on display and we will give you a more in-depth explanation.

Gun safes are just that...designed for the secure storage of firearms. Most are available with some degree of fire resistance, and most are available with considerable resistance to forced entry. Interiors can be configured for varying numbers of long guns and hand guns as well as ammunition storage and space for other gear. A dehumidifier is strongly recommended. Call The Key Shop for some informed guidance before you purchase a gun safe.

Safe Servicing


The Key Shop can service your safe, old or new. Changing the combination is important whenever there is a personnel change in your business or if you suspect the combination has been compromised. This is not something to try without proper training as lockouts can be expensive.
