AMSEC Brute B1816– Wide Door In-Floor Safe
AMSEC’s B1816 is the largest and deepest of their Brute Series Floor Safes. The 16” of depth and extra-wide door offer an excellent combination of access and capacity. Add to that the excellent burglar protection derived from AMEC’s 60+ years safe building expertise and you and have solid security solution.
The B1816 and all AMSEC’s Brute Series safes have a heavy duty 1/2” solid steel plate door that is extra wide measuring 11-3/4” x 16”. This large opening is convenient for large bulky items including cash trays. The door is locked solidly in place with three 1” diameter drive resistant locking bolts and a one piece heavy duty dead bar, all to prevent door removal in a forced entry attempt. All this makes for a heavy door, but don’t worry, it is accompanied by pistons which make lifting it open a breeze. When properly installed the safe is encased in concrete. Together the door and concrete installation provide trustworthy protection from both burglars and fire.
A UL Group 2 mechanical lock is standard with the B1816 floor safe. This is the lock you typically see in movies with the spin dial. It is a high security, highly reliable lock but does take some concentration and good light to dial in the three-digit combination. The safe can be upgraded to an easy to use ESL5 or ESL10 digital lock but keep in mind, electronic locks are vulnerable to water damage. Regardless of what lock you choose, it will be protected by a spring-loaded relocker and a large carburized hardplate.
Floor safes such as the B1816 are great when space is at a minimum as they are installed in the floor, often in an out of the way place. Once installed add the included cover plate and cover with a section of carpet or rug. No one will even know it is there.
In-floor safes such as the B1816 are an excellent solution for securing valuables you don’t need to get to often. Unless you enjoy doing deep knee bends and digging around in a dark hole they are not the best for frequently accessed valuables.
Due to the nature of in-floor, concrete installation these safes are susceptible to moisture problems. We highly recommend using a desiccant bag or silica gel can to protect moisture sensitive items. Ziplock bags or air tight plastic storage containers are also helpful. Also keep in mind, most floor safes are not water tight so your air tight bags and containers will protect in the case of water from above as well.
