FAQs safes

I am looking for a safe with fire protection. How much fire protection does which safe offer and what do the levels mean?
The level information is used to classify the individual models within the BURG-WÄCHTER family. If you are looking for a safe that offers both tested fire protection and certified burglary protection, we recommend a safe from the Combi-Line series, the MTD F 60 or an OfficeDoku.

My safe is closed and I no longer have a key. What can I do if I can no longer find a key?
Contact a local security specialist (dealer locator on our homepage). If the key was stolen or you lost it, we recommend either replacing the safe or installing a new lock, depending on the value of the safe. Our service line + 49 (0)2335 965 366 will be happy to help you find a specialist.

My key has broken off. What can I do?
First check whether the key bit is stuck in the lock. If this is the case, try to remove the broken part of the key to open the lock with the duplicate key. After that, you should take the duplicate key to a security dealer (locksmith), they will make a duplicate key for you.
