The top 10 safes of 2020

* Anthony-Neary_Safe.jpgJewellery, cash and sentimental items are all in the top 10 items most commonly stolen from UK Homes.

Although security lights and British Standard locks are ideal for basic home security, taking protection levels one step further could help build on the 37% fall in UK burglaries since lockdown started.

The next step is to protect those sought after smaller items in a home safe.

A safe adds another layer of protection to valuables. They allow people to rest in the knowledge that in the event of someone breaking in, burglars may be deterred by having to break into a safe as well. Many safes also protect your belongings from fire damage and can improve insurance policies and claims too.

Security product and safe specialists Safe.co.uk have provided its top 10 home safes of 2020 to help give people peace of mind through times of uncertainty.
