Burglary safes provide a substantial boost in security. These safes are much more secure than a home safe, but do not have an independent lab certification, like RSC, TL-15, and TL-30 safes do.
They are a popular option for individuals and businesses seeking a secure solution without breaking the bank.

Burglary rated safes are a type of safe that is classified based on its resistance to break-ins and attacks. It is a build specification that the manufactures must follow in order to be classed as a B-rated, C-rated, or E-rated burglary safe.
However, safes that meet the above ratings are not independently tested and certified to meet a specific burglary resistance test.
Business safes that often move a good amount of cash may opt for a burglar safe without a fire rating. For example, cash can be dropped into a nearby safe out of the register in order to protect it from theft. But money is often moved quickly (daily) from these safes to a safe or locations that can provide fire resistant storage. Cash drop safes and deposit safes are good examples of burglar safes without fire ratings.
Of course, you can get them with fire ratings as well. Burglary safes with fire ratings tend to be 2-hour fire rated safes, making them the ideal place to store money on a more permanent basis (weekly) while it waits to get picked up and taken to a bank.
Burglary safes are considered a good entry-level option for securing valuable items up to $20,000 against common burglary attempts.
Their doors will be at least ½ inch thick steel (in total) so as to prevent them from being drilled, pried or otherwise tampered with. Most often this is a solid plate of steel over the entire door.
The safe body will be at least ¼ inch of steel in total as well.
They are a popular choice for individuals and businesses seeking a secure storage solution without breaking the bank.
Due to the construction, they will be significantly heavier than a home fire safe, often weighing several hundred pounds and they will come with bolt down holes so that the safe can be tightly secured to the floor.
Since, in addition to security, burglary safes are often chosen for their price, a quality non-name-brand safe is what you want here so money is not spent on the brand name.
