Exactly what I wanted. Can't fault it.

Several reviewers seem to have been disappointed by capacity. I can't understand this. The dimensions (int and ext) are clearly and accurately given in the spec. Don't criticise the product if you can't be bothered to do a little research before buying.

For day to day use - guarantees, bonds, papers that you need but can't remember where you put, passport and some ready cash. Strong enough to give confidence.

Not sure what you do to get in to the box if there'as been a fire, the keypad is not protected at all. If I had space I'd have a bigger one, there's a limit, anything over A4 is not possible.

Sturdy construction - confident it's a good safe.

Electronic lock seems sensibly designed to minimise potential tampering.

Great size for fitting in a wardrobe or other confined space.

Provided bolts perfect for fixing to the floor.

You'll need to buy yourself a 14mm drill bit to drill a hole for the bolts!

This Safe is big enough to take A4 folders and envelopes yet small enough to be installed inside a wardrobe or cupboard.Having some fire protection it is ideal for those insurance documents,passports etc that you don't want to lose.

Easy to install and at a very competitive price it is a very good buy all round.

Its ok it does the job.

The safe is mounted on its side and the door falls off maybe a split pin would hold it in place.

Exposed hinges easy to cut off.

I should have got a slghtly larger safe to hold folders.

Robust construction with simple operation. Website layout very intuitive. Purchasing process very easy. Good sales communication and delivery service very good.

An internal shelf as standard would have made the product more usable.

Other secure mounting options which don't destroy the fire integrity of the safe.

Great compact cost effective design. Just not quite big enough to store A4 Wallet files without creasing them. This would be good.

Very easy to open and close. Gives one a secure feeling to put the Deeds of the house and special jewellery in it.

We could not secure this anywhere in the house without ripping off the skirting boards. My husband had to construct wooden blocks on the concrete below and bolt to that which may not be quite so secure. As it's low down and therefore dark we have had to put a plastic box in it to pull the items out to see them which is fine but takes up some of the space.

I really like the safe. It is obviously well made, you can see that just by looking at it, it's all smooth corners and no gaps between fitted pieces. I particularly like the ability to use more than one pass code at the same time. My wife needs to access and, having different ideas on passwords makes it difficult but with each using our own it's so simple. It's a nice size for home use with plenty of room for all the usual stuff and knowing it's as safe as it can be should there be a fire is a must these days. All in all a great safe with everything I need.

I bought this safe for my business as it isn’t always easy to get away from work to get to the bank with cash receipts. For me this safe has plenty of room inside. The safe was delivered as per the sellers website. It was easy to install and set up for use. I have had no problems operating the safe or with security. I would definitely recommend this product should anyone want a small secure safe. The safe was heavy enough to encourage no one to try and take it away but the easy method of bolting it to the floor from inside makes it very secure from theft from the property

The safe I purchased was for its cost very sturdy,secure and easy to operate, it was very easy to secure the safe to the floor useing the pre-drilled holes, setting up your code following manufacturers instructions was a breeze. The safe had plenty of space for my documents etc, there is also a separate draw for smaller items like keys etc.

Good value for money, large enough to fit A4 paper inside a typical A4 document folder with an additional small tray in the top for miscellaneous items. The build quality seems to be good especially for the price and the keypad feels like it is also decent quality. It was supplied with good mounting hardware which suits fixing to most solid surfaces. It was very easy to program a new code. I cannot really provide an expert opinion on exactly how secure it is, but it is heavy and appears to be of a good, secure design for the price.

FAQs [24]

FAQs (24)

» Ask Question   

I am interested in buying the FireStar Safe but like some of the reviews feel nervous about relying on the electronic lock. The plastic looks flimsy. How would I get access if the lock was maliciously damaged or it just failed?
Although an electronic lock cannot be considered 100% failure proof it is very unusual for a lock to fail. Problems generally experienced by electronic locks tend to be forgotten PIN codes and flat batteries. If you forget your code we can supply a unique master-reset code on production of a proof of purchase and the batteries are installed from the outside of the door and can easily be replaced should they go flat.

In the unlikely event of a failure a qualified locksmith would be required to open the safe. If this occurred during the warranty period the safe would be replaced if required.

We are thinking of buying this fire safe, please could you advise on the size/type of fixings that secure it to the floor, as we need to check with our premises that we'd be able to attach it without causing any damage.
The fixing bolts provided with this safe are called Expansion Bolts, with the dimensions - Length: 105mm and Diameter: 12mm. The bolt is designed to anchor against the material it is bolted to, the optimum being a solid concrete surface.

Is the safe fireproof even with the bolt holes in the bottom?
Jonathan, Devon
The safe arrives with a rubber plug inside each of the bolt holes in the bottom of the safe. This will ensure the safe is air tight and fire proof. The safe is designed to be installed to a solid concrete floor by using the fixing bolts included. Once installed correctly, the safe will be secured from theft and air tight to allow up to 60 minutes fire protection in up to 945° C heat.

I am looking to put the safe in our bedroom on the first floor. Can the safe be bolted to the floorboards? Or does it require to be installed into concrete?
Steven Cullum, Edinburgh
The safe ideally needs to be installed to a concrete or brick surface. Floorboards, unless fixing into the joist, are not strong enough. If you don't have a solid floor surface, you could consider a chemical (glue) installation.

Does the safe retain the same code if the batteries run flat, or would the code need reset using the master code?
Steven Geelan, Alloa
The safe will retain the same code if the batteries run flat. You would only need the master code if you forgot your code.

If the safe is damaged by fire, how do you get it open, assuming the keypad is melted or no longer functioning?
Mike B, Stockport
We offer a Lifetime Fire Warranty with this safe and if ever the keypad was melted due to a fire and no longer accessible, we would send a locksmith to open the safe professionally and we would also organise a replacement safe to be sent to you.

Is there any reason I can't fit this safe in a cellar below ground level within a solid stone wall? The base would be secured into a concrete pad as you suggest and then I would fill all around the back and sides with expanding foam simply to offer more insulation. The cellar is dry and at a constant 12 degrees all year round. The hole to be fitted into is not near an outside wall and so is not prone to any external water.
Anonymous, Sheffield
Fitting the safe into the cellar is perfectly fine providing it is not subject to damp conditions. The FireStar Series comes prepared for floor fixing rather than to the wall due to the fire protection. Our advice is to install to a concrete floor.
