    E - CAT Safe - Recommendations

    I'm in the market for a new safe.

    I'm looking for recommendations for a affordable E-Cat safe. I have been told that some 'E-CAT' safe brands are not considered worthy due to the type of steel used/ tensile strength etc. Ideally looking for something around the 1K mark or under.

    I've heard Kilwell is a good brand. Proline?

    Has anyone had a go at getting one built and certified?

    Cheers.

    Interesting. I have enquired abut the Bite Extreme. Cheers.

    Have they changed the specifications recently? Old certs would be no more than 12-24 months old?

    Yeah built one - two sheets 6mm steel and two Ross 5 lever locks set me back about 800 IIRC before any welding

    Passed as a box of stout construction rather than a safe I think, sorry was a while back
