Deposit Safe Fraud & EN1143-1 Alteration

EN1143-1 Safe Alteration Will Void Certification

When a pneumatic tube, capsule deposit, rotary trap or letter slot is fitted to any certified safe, the safe can no longer be treated as a certified unit as its barrier material has been extensively breached.

Despite this fact many unscrupulous safe suppliers claim that a safe certified EN1143-1 remains certified even after this kind of major alteration has occurred and will also claim that the altered unit also maintains its cash rating. This kind of intentional deception is fraud.

When a certified safes (EN1143-1) is altered in any significant way the correct procedure is to remove it's certification labels so as not to misrepresent the unit as a certified safe.
