Safe and Secure with Union

Security is a major concern for most people. However, it may seem that a determined thief will be able to walk away with whatever he or she wants. What’s important to remember is that most burglaries are crimes of opportunity and speed.

Chris E. McGoey, a security consultant in Los Angeles, says that burglars generally go for what they can grab in one run through a house. “Once they get their arms full,” he adds, “they’re out of there.”

From Consumer Reports: A 1.2 or 1.3 cubic-foot safe probably weighs about 100 pounds empty, making it a less attractive target than jewelry, cameras, small electronics, and other more portable items a burglar might spot. Many safes also come with bolt-down kits, a further deterrent to thieves in a hurry. Other safes can be concealed in a wall or anchored in a concrete floor.

In addition to protecting valuables, another consideration is storing important documents which should be protected but still readily accessible such as birth certificates, passports, estate-planning documents, life-insurance policies, savings bonds, stock certificates and tax returns.

While you can’t put a price on peace of mind, you don’t have to spend a fortune to secure important items. Check out the Union Safe Company brand of safes. There are several different types of safes in the Union line from which to choose depending on your security needs.
