Diplomat MTD safe for demanding applications

Protection against theft combined with protection against fire and heat. The BURG-WÄCHTER Diplomat series safes provide double security, making them the ideal place for your valuables! This is because the Diplomat safe with resistance grade I is type-tested, monitored by ECB•S/VdS and certified for burglary protection according to EN 1143-1. The models are available with mechanical lock or with electronic lock including fingerprint.

At least one hour of fire protection

In the Diplomat, your documents are protected from fire and heat for at least one hour. This is exactly what the certified fire protection according to EN 15659 guarantees, which is why our developers have designed the wall with reinforced special fire insulation. Furthermore, special heat insulation is installed to ensure that the temperature inside the safe rises only slowly. In addition, the door gaps are sealed with special swelling material.

The Diplomat – For your safety

  • Type-tested security monitored by ECB•S/VdS
  • Resistance grade I
  • Certified burglary protection according to EN 1143-1
  • Certified fire protection according to EN 15659 (2009 version),
  • Fire resistance LFS 60 P: 60 minutes’ fire protection for paper

Diplomat safe: Highest quality with resistance grade I

Extreme protection thanks to the complete safety package

The Diplomat safe owes its enormous resistance to it’s three-walled body. The safe door also adds security with its four-walled construction. For this purpose, the door hinges are inset, which further increases protection against the safe being broken open. The same applies to the four-sided locking with extra-strong round bolts. Special reinforcement (supporting material in the walls) protects crossbar-like bolts. A further plus is the emergency locking system with two non-resettable, independent systems. All components result in a complete security package that makes a forced opening much more difficult! To install the fire protection safe securely, it comes prepared for wall- and floor anchoring. Of course we deliver the installation hardware together with the safe.

The safe is also approved as a gun cabinet

Thanks to its slim body, the Diplomat offers plenty of space inside. One or two adjustable shelves, depending on the model, ensure that valuable items are properly organised. The MTD 740 and MTD 750 are delivered with one shelf, the MTD 760 and MTD 780 with two shelves. Even after the tightening up of the German Weapons Act (§36) in July 2017, you can store an unlimited number of handguns and ammunition in the Diplomat. In addition to its “inner advantages”, the safe scores points with a classic, elegant silver-metallic paint finish. Special coatings are also available on request.

You have a choice of locking systems!

The safe models, which come in four sizes, are available with two locking systems. Of course with the classic key (K models). Or the modern electronic locking system “SecuTronic” (E FP models) for opening by code or fingerprint. The high-security double-bit “SecuSafe” lock offers a convenient something extra. Namely, should you ever lose a key, you can simply order a new set of keys and reset the lock to the new keys. If your old key has been stolen, it can no longer be used to open the safe thanks to the resettable lock!

New electronic “SecuTronic” provides comfort and safety

The modern electronic-safe unit “SecuTronic” TRSE 12 H FP offers well thought-out features for security and convenience. For example, the control screen offers a sloped touch control panel with graphic display. Instead of tediously looking for the “On” button, all you have to do is swipe the control panel. This immediately activates it and illuminates it in two colours. Furthermore, the sloped control panel guarantees optimal viewing even from above. You can, of course, freely select the opening code. One admin code and nine user codes are available. You can also view the opening history directly on the display.

Opening time delay, lock-out time, connection to alarm system

The “SecuTronic” TRSE 12 H FP electronic lock has an opening delay (max. 99 minutes). This means: After the correct code is entered, the programmed time must elapse before the safe can be opened. Once three incorrect codes have been entered, a lock-out time is activated. This means that burglars have no chance to try lots of combinations. In addition, Diplomat safes can be connected to an alarm system or alarm message system. All these details give you even more security!

Additional information

Dimensions N/A

I'm looking for a safe with fire protection. How much fire protection does each safe offer, and what do the different levels mean?

The indicated levels serve to classify the individual models within the BURG-WÄCHTER family. If you are looking for a safe that offers both tested fire protection and certified burglary protection, we recommend a safe from the Combi-Line series, the MTD F 60 or an OfficeDoku.


My safe is locked and I don't have my keys. What can I do if I can’t find any keys?

Contact a local security specialist (dealer search on our homepage). If the key has been stolen or lost, depending on the value of the safe we recommend either replacing the safe or installing a new lock. If you are looking for a specialist, our service helpline

+ 49 (0)2335 965 366

will be happy to assist you.


My key broke. What can I do?

First check whether the key bit is stuck in the lock. If this is the case, try to remove the broken-off part of the key and open the lock with the second key. Afterwards you should take the duplicate key to a specialised dealer in security products (locksmith), who will make a duplicate key for you.


What happens to the code set when the batteries are changed?

As a rule, the code is retained and does not have to be reconfigured by BURG-WÄCHTER for all current safes following a battery change.


I want to change my codes. How do I find the operating instructions?

On the BURG-WÄCHTER homepage you will find the appropriate operating instructions for each safe.


The electronic lock on my safe is not giving out any more signals and/or is not responding at all. What can I do in this case?

The first thing you should try is to change the batteries. If necessary, you should clean the battery contacts and spray them with pole grease or contact spray. If the electronic lock is still not giving out a signal, you should try to remove the batteries and then press the ON/Enter button several times (at least three times), insert new batteries and try again with the known code.


On which safe can you replace the door:

a) after a break-in?

b) to change the locking system from S to E?

Both after a break-in and if you wish to change the locking system, VdS-approved safes and gun cabinets with resistance grade 0 (N) or higher offer the option to replace the door. That means this is possible with the Karat, Diplomat, Office, and Royal safes.
