What are safe deposit box systems and why are they highly secure?

Safe deposit box systems are installations of deposit lockers that are securely stored in a locked, certified strong room or vault room. The process of accessing a safe deposit box is secured by a crypto memory card, a pin code, and a biometric scan. This solution offers the highest level of security for the storage of valuable items such as gold and precious metals, jewellery, bonds, contracts, and other important documents.

Gunnebo is a leading manufacturer of security systems, including safes, strong rooms, vault rooms, vault doors, authentication technology, and user administration software. Gunnebo offers safe deposit box solutions to banks, credit unions, and private service operators who rent them out to clients.

Safe deposit box systems come in two categories: conventional, mechanical lockers; and fully automated lockers based on robot technology. While the fully automated system enables customers to access their safety deposit box at any time and without the need of staff assistance, the conventional solution is usually only accessible during bank opening hours. However, the integration of high-security electronic locks and automated user authentication can enable 24/7 self-service access also to conventional locker facilities.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How secure is a safe deposit box system?

Gunnebo strong room and vault doors solutions are an essential part of this secure system. Our strong rooms are designed to shield physical attacks, core drills, and explosives, and are certified by the European Certification Body ECB-S in accordance with the EN 1143-1 standard. This system uses multiple layers of authentication, including a crypto memory card, pin code, and biometric scan, to secure user access.

In this way, Gunnebo safe deposit box systems provide the highest level of security for the storage of valuable items. Since no safety deposit locker can be 100% secure against theft, fire, or flood, it is still recommended that the box's contents be insured. Insurers recognise the ECB-S certification system and take it into account when calculating premiums.

What can you put in a safe deposit box?

A safe deposit box is a secure way to store valuable items like gold, cash, jewelry, securities, bonds, and important documents. Banks and other financial institutions may ban the storage of weapons, drugs, and other illegal or dangerous items. When renting a safe deposit locker from a financial institution or private service provider, customers are advised to always check the terms and conditions.

Who can access a safe deposit box?

Depending on the terms and conditions of the service provider, multiple individuals can have access to a secure deposit box. In such cases, individuals who have agreed to share a box are given keys as co-tenants. The process of adding a new user to a service may require them to visit the registration office, provide identification, and sign documents agreeing to be included as a co-tenant.

In fully automated solutions, new tenants will receive an additional access card, a pin code and a key to the box itself. For systems that feature biometric authentication, a biometric scan of any additional tenant must also be carried out. It is always advisable to check the local service provider’s terms and conditions.
