Deposit safes take a number of forms and these affect the classification attributed to them.
Deposit safes are normally located within a building and are primarily designed to enable employees to deposit money or other items without having to open the main door of the safe. Deposit safes receive a classification of “D-#” where # is the grade of resistance achieved during testing.
Deposit safes range from standard deposit safes with manual operation through to the distributed deposit systems employed by supermarkets.
Night safes, on the other hand, are often accessible from the street and are primarily used by financial institutions for providing a secure depositing system for their customers. Night safes receive a classification of “N-#” where # is the grade of resistance achieved during testing.
