Security Standards

To provide the highest levels of protection, the Fichet-Bauche solutions are tested to comply with the latest industry standards. Products undergo certification tests to prove that they are able to provide the requisite levels of protection against burglary, fire or explosives. The tests are all carried out by qualified independent bodies to ensure credible results based on a recognised classification system.

The various certification tests are conducted under strict conditions by experienced operators armed with plans of the products and a whole range of tools.

In parallel, the Fichet-Bauche solutions benefit from the latest technological innovations with patented barrier materials that provide reduced weight, lighter panels, extra-light insulation, as well as combined resistance. 


Burglary Resistance

european standards and security grades

Safes and vaults are awarded a Grade for burglary resistance. The grading system is important as the contents of a safe will only be insured for the correct value if the safe carries the appropriate grade. As the insurance ratings differ from a country to another, the insurance details shall be checked with your Gunnebo local contact.
