With its enlarged 216mm square opening, the Caretaker is ideal for the secure storage of larger valuable items, including many laptops and tablets, large paper document files, plus the full range of smaller valuables including jewellery, watches, coins and cash. Add in 4 large, stainless steel, locking bolts, a host of integral attack resistance measures, a high quality VdS lock, and our class-leading build-quality, and the Caretaker stands head and shoulders above the alternatives, as the class leading square-door underfloor safe. Fitted with a VdS Grade 2 key lock as standard, that offers the facility to simply change the key to a new pattern, without lock disassembling, if an original key is still held (if spare keys are lost, or are in the possession of an unauthorised keyholder for example). It can also be supplied with the option of a convenient ‘detachable bit’ key lock system, allowing users to keep short key bits in a purse or wallet, rather than carrying around a bulky traditional key.

  • Precision engineered, fully removable, solid steel door.
  • Robust steel floor vault.
  • Key locked safes supplied with 2 keys as standard (additional keys are available).
  • Key escutcheon dust cover (or data badge on combination safes), stamped with individual safe build number.
  • Connecting transitional neck section (to allow installation beneath a substantial thickness of reinforced concrete). Fabricated from steel plate and powder coated in a antique silver-black, durable, ‘hammered’ finish.
  • Internal bottom ‘pan’ cover. Fabricated from steel plate and powder coated in antique silver-black, durable, ‘hammered’ finish and designed to further protect the lock and entire safe mechanism.
  • Discrete, flush fitting, floor level dust cover. Fabricated from steel plate and powder coated in a silver-black, durable, ‘hammered’ finish.
  • Full installation instructions and installation compliance certification (for completion following correct installation).

Ease of use

The safe door has been designed with ease of use as a priority, and thanks to an innovative originally and patented design, it can be refitted by simply locating it, (with one hand), directly back into the vault collar, in any one of 4 directions. There are no fiddly, fixed locating bolts, hinges or mountings to line up, as with many other alternative underfloor safes.


Fitted with a high quality, fully certified lock, and made using only select materials, each safe incorporates various attack counter-measures to resist lock picking, lock-tampering/damage, drilling, abrasive disc or saw attack, heavy impact, leverage and use of flame/heat.

Additional Product Information

Internal Dimensions of  Safe Vaults

The following are APPROXIMATE internal dimensions and volumes of each safe vault (floor storage box) only. This information is provided to give a practical understanding of the amount of storage that each vault size provides.

These dimensions are slightly different to the external vault measurements, which are slightly larger, due to the thickness of the vault walls, and the anti-extraction flange. They also do not include the size of the connecting transitional neck section (that connects the vault with floor level, to allow vault installation beneath reinforced concrete). Please contact us for full external dimensions if these are needed when planning your installation.

Weights are approximate only and are based upon standard key locked underfloor safes. Weights will vary with different lock configurations and if a deposit tube facility is selected.
