Although it is common to believe that safes and vaults are alike, there are distinct differences. This is where terminology can become confusing. Vault and safe are usually interchangeable. In technical terms, a vault can be described as a safe; However, a safe is not called a vault.
Both units are designed by the safe manufacturer to serve the same purpose. But the thing is, how are they different from each other? The construction and installation in your place create critical differences between them. Vaults are usually built into a building’s structure, while safes are freestanding, independent, and portable. Safes can also be installed into walls. A vault is generally treated as a room and reinforced with a steel door or other security standards.
A vault is an immovable storage unit built into a structure such as a bank building. On the other hand, a safe is usually smaller and made from metal. Vaults can be as large as rooms and are made from steel-reinforced concrete metal boxes. Vaults can hold much more and larger items. Meanwhile, safes are typically made of steel and are smaller. They can also be carried around with a combination or digital lock. These safes are more affordable, practical, and offer the best security.
As we know, safe and Vault come with fireproof features, but Vault offers more security and protection; two parts are essential for a fireproof vault to work correctly. The first part is the dual activated thermal seal. This prevents heat from passing through the gaps. To provide maximum protection, it has two seals. These seals are only available on the most recent safes.
Commercial users can use Vaults, such as banks, jewellers, and anyone who has large cash balances like credit unions or casinos. Vaults are also suitable for businesses that deal with cash, valuable artwork, weapons, or other essential items. Vaults offer additional protection, such as security guards and security monitoring systems with alarms.
