    Default Chubb Safe.....odd looking ?

    Not sure if the pictures have uploaded......if they have does the front of this Chubb safe look slightly odd in the dimesion department ? Surely accessing the top quarter of the unit would be at best tricky ?

    It's a Night Deposit safe with the hopper at the top of the back fitted through a wall. This leaves room for the wallets to accumulate and pyramid up to door lever.

    Being hinged on the "wrong" side always make them look a bit odd too.

    Default Sunk in the ground

    Also to note. Theyíre almost always sunk into the concrete floor. As this one is. The distance from the top of the door you see to the top of the safe, will be roughly the same bellow the door to the bottom of the safe. Iíve seen many different shapes and sizes of these. Sometimes the doors are higher or lower and even on the side.
