For the ultimate in security and peace of mind, the formidable Dreadnought is fitted with special ‘ABP’ (anti-blow pipe) protection, to provide resistance to attack by thermic lance or cutting equipment, in addition to various other innovative attack counter-measures. With its class leading VdS certified grade 3 lock, it also 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 the short key bits in a purse or wallet, rather than carrying around a bulky traditional key. With a circular access diameter of 142mm (5.6”), it is suitable for the high-security storage of all types of jewellery, watches, coins, cash and other valuables, and is renowned in the industry as the gold standard of underfloor safes.

  • Key escutcheon dust cover (or data badge on combination safes), stamped with individual safe build number.

  • Additional connecting neck sections are optionally available for the Dreadnought (these allow the vault to be installed under double thickness concrete, for additional security).

Ease of use

The safe door has been designed with ease of use as a priority, and thanks to an innovative and originally patented design, it can be refitted by simply locating it, (with one hand), directly back into the vault collar, in any direction, throughout 360 degrees. There are no fiddly, fixed locating bolts, hinges or mountings to line up, as with many other alternative underfloor safes.


Underfloor safe consists of a super-armoured, solid steel ‘floor vault’, fitted with a CIRCULAR, highly engineered, extra-thick solid stainless steel, fully removable, safe door. 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 special ABP protection to resist the use of flame/heat (using heavy cutting equipment or thermic lance).

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.
