Security standards

Security standards

All Chubbsafes’ certified products are tested for function and durability by the world’s most recognised test houses to ensure the products fulfil your security expectations and meet insurance standards. They are submitted to test with extreme resistance requirements against burglary, fire, firearms or/and explosives.

Burglary tests

Chubbsafes manufacturing processes are constantly improved with new barrier materials that are slimmer, lighter and cheaper than existing materials in order to reach optimum efficiency and quality.

Burglary Resistance: European Standards and Security Grades

Safes and vaults are awarded a Grade for burglary resistance. The grading system is important as the contents of a safe will only be insured for the correct value if the safe carries the appropriate grade. As the insurance ratings differ from a country to another, the insurance details shall be checked with your Gunnebo local contact.

Burglary resistance: south african standards and security categories

Safes and doors are awarded a rating for burglary resistance. The rating system is important as the contents of a safe will only be insured for the correct value if the safe carries the appropriate rating. As the insurance ratings differ from a country to another, the insurance details shall be checked with your Gunnebo local contact.

Chubbsafes' products meet the conditions of the following South African standards:

Strong Room Doors

SANS 949:2019

CAT1 - CAT5

Certified Safes

SANS 751:2008

CAT2ADM - CAT5


Product features included in the burglary resistance test

  • To provide the appropriate level of protection, the products are tested to comply with the latest industry standards. Within a test, there are single product features tested, and not only the safe as such:
  • The wall and door barriers
  • The boltwork
  • The drawer sliders
  • The lock
  • The handle
  • Base fixing strength
  • Preparation for alarm installation
Levels of resistance

Alongside extremely strict standards, you will also find a number of others that are less stringent in terms of resistance (*The UL 72 test doesn't necessarily involve conducting a drop test).

Fire Resistance

Chubbsafes solutions are also compression tested and fire-resistant products are given thermal resistance tests in extreme temperatures to simulate the conditions of a real fire. For fire protection, these standards vary according to whether you want to protect paper documents, digital media or other highly sensitive objects. This is because the temperature at which data media (e.g. 50°C) and documents (e.g. 170°C) deteriorate differs according to the item protected. Fire-resistant products are certified in accordance with the standards in the table below.

The temperature at which data media (e.g. 50°C) and documents (e.g. 170°C) deteriorate differs according to the item protected. In order to fully protect data media, industry standards indicate that products should carry ECB•S EN 1047-1, UL 72 Class 125 or NT Fire 017 60/120 DIS.
