Due to insurance requirements I needed a high value safe. The Phoenix Fortress SS1182e seemed to suit this requirement exactly. Although more expensive than the key version the digital type did not require another safe just to secure the key. Although there were a few disappointments the ease of use on both opening and closing the locking device is major plus. Notwithstanding the disappointments I am very happy with the installed product.

There were however 3 disappointing aspects of the safe as supplied.

The instructions to install the security bolts were a little confused since two versions were included. One indicated drilling a 20mm hole the other indicted drilling 10 mm holes both to the required depth. Both instructions bore no relation to the 10 mm bolts supplied. The final result was to purchase separate Rawl Bolts.

The internal shelf appeared to be adjustable as shown on one of the indicated photos on the website whilst another showed it at a fixed height. This then restricted the items that I wished to installed with the shelf in this fixed position.

The 3rd item is that the safe can only be opened to 90 deg. It is essential therefore to ensure that sufficient room is allowed to install the various items . The safe therefore takes up a little more space than expected in my location.

Pros: Easy to install, and once you worked out how to programme the code for the first time no problems. Otherwise I would give it a 10/10. Storage capacity was fine for what we needed. Cons: instructions on how to set up the code were poor, unclear how to get it into programme mode. That said, once mastered, an excellent safe and gives you great peace of mind when you are out.
