The high-carat protection for your valuables
It’s not only carats that you can secure in our safe, after all everyone has many different things that he or she holds precious and special. And exactly for these objects our Karat provides security at home. The same applies to cash money, jewellery and important documents. In fact, the security cabinet by BURG-WÄCHTER is extremely robust and provides great resistance against opening by force.
Here is how the Karat is built
The body of the Karat consists of three steel walls. Furthermore the outer surface is produced with especially hard stainless steel. This perfect interplay provides a flame-cutting protection. Especially strong steel is installed in the door. A thick plate of 7 mm SM steel in the double-walled door ensures security. The locking system works with square bolts on three sides. The bolts on the top and on the bottom are protected by an integrated steel roller. All this allows a considerable additional protection against opening by force. For instance against drilling, flame-cutting and breaking-open. A further advantage concerning security: the thermal puncture-proof emergency locking system in front of each bolt.
Protection against fire and theft
In addition to external violence the Karat resists also fire. Thanks to its fire-resistant material (according to DIN 4102-A1) and a surrounding fire-breaking seal in the body, the inside of the safe gets warm only slowly. In this way your documents and files, as well as cash money are protected for a longer time. A security cabinet can really be this safe. Moreover burglars can not take it away, thanks to a stable anchoring. For this reason the Karat works as standard with drilled holes. With the fastening material – delivered with the safe – the Karat can be firmly anchored in a wall or on the floor.
In case of key loss: just reset the lock!
With both safe sizes you can choose between two locking systems. Of course with a mechanical key (model K). Or with the modern electronic locking system “SecuTronic“ (E FP model) for opening by code or by fingerprint. The high security double-bit lock “SecuSafe“ of the Karat safe provides an intelligent advantage. In fact, if you lose one of your keys, you just need to order a new key set and reset the lock to this new set. If someone stole your old key, the safe can not be opened any more with it thanks to the resettable lock! Our video shows how it is done.
Modern electronic lock with fingerprint
The modern electronics of the safe “SecuTronic“ TRSE 12 H FP combines security and comfort. In fact, the operating panel provides a sloping touch-sensitive keypad with graphic display. Instead of struggling to find the “on” button, you only need to skim over the interface. In this way you activate it and turn the two-tone lightings on. Furthermore the sloping display guarantees also an ideal top view. Of course you can freely choose the opening code. An admin code and nine user codes are available. Moreover you can read the opening history directly on the display.
The Karat provides blocking time, opening delay, connection to alarm system
The lock “SecuTronic“ TRSE 12 H FP provides an opening delay (max. 99 minutes). It means: After entering the code the set period of time passes, until the Karat gets open. After entering three wrong codes a blocking time is activated. In this way burglars have no chance to try many codes. Furthermore the Karat safe can be connected to the alarm system. All these details increase your security even more!
Authorized for short weapons storage
The safety cabinet is delivered with an adjustable shelf. This way you can organize your valuables as you wish. Thanks to the slender design the inside can be optimally used. The smaller Karat model MT 24 has an interior volume of 25,8 liters, the bigger model MT 26 reaches 45,3 liters. Both have an elegant and timeless platinum grey finish. Furthermore in the Karat you can also store up to five short weapons, ammunitions included, according to the tightened German weapons law (§36) of July 2017. Thus the security cabinet Karat is a safe and responsible place to store weapons.
