Safes & Strongrooms

Our safe breakers use over 250 different devices and tools for their tests. These include crowbars, saws, diamond core drills, abrasive cutting tools, and oxygen lances heated to several thousand ­degrees for thermally separating even the hardest materials. Additional devices and tools are used depending on the latest perpetrator trends. We determine the VdS resistance level of safes using a formula that takes into account the tool groups used as well as the types and periods of attack.

Many manufacturers also take the opportunity to attend specific testing sessions themselves, thus gaining insights for further optimization of their safes.

We safeguard the great trust of all leading manufacturers of high-quality safes in VdS services with comprehensive technical options – but ­primarily with the competence of our engineers gained through many years of experience.
