FICHET's international experience in protection against theft now makes it possible for us to propose our 4th generation safes. The world has seen three major generations of safes:
Wooden and iron safes (16th century)
Safes with a metal structure internally filled (end 19th-early 20th century)
Complex structure safes, invented by FICHET in the middle of the 20th century.
FICHET now offers a new generation: safes with composite structures.
FICHET WORKS FOR YOU
Since its creation, FICHET has constantly invested in research to improve the quality of its safes. Our research centre at Velizy conceives and develops new structures offering ever-increasing defensive capacity. Each new structure is severely tested, both in our laboratories and in official test centres to prove its ability in defeating safe-breakers armed with the most modern tools.
The materials used in the Silver ENIII safe are no exception to this rule: the defensive structure and boltwork have had to satisfy quality criteria in order to guarantee the performance of theses safes.
Computer-assisted design and manufacture, robotics and auto production are all used by FICHET to guarantee cost-effective manufacturing and constant quality assurance in its products.
To provide high-quality safes today and design those for tomorrow is our company's policy.
FICHET WORKS WITH YOU
The Silver ENIII series are part of the latest generation of safes developed and tested by FICHET.
Many criteria must be taken into account when selecting a safe:
The valuables to be protected (which may take many forms, apart from cash)
The internal volume
And, obviously, the crime hazard.
Our specialists will help you analyze and evaluate your risk and advise you on your choice with total discretion. We attach great importance to this service, since a safe must represent the best possible solution to your particular need and must always offer maximum security within its category in order to fully satisfy your requirements.
In addition to protecting your property, a safe must always be easy and convenient to use. This is why we have selected a modern esthetic finish (grained ash-grey lacquer) for Silver ENIII safes and fitted them with all the following as standard:
ergonomically-designed handles with an anthracite grey finish,
an M2i lock operated by a short key,
a CVS combination lock which, with its visual display, is simple to use, silent and discreet,
adjustable-height, removable shelves,
hinges which allow the door to open to 180° giving completely free access to the inside of the safe,
floor and/or wall anchor points,
equipment to allow easy installation of an internal alarm (cable run provided in the bottom hinge)
and the following as options:
on internal cabinet with a security lock to further increase protection and discretion,
a locking cabinet plinth for models 6 and 12, to bring them up to a more convenient height,
systems to protect against armed attack and opening under duress: a time lock and programmable time delay lock.
EFFECTIVE PROTECTION AGAINST THEFT AND FIRE PROVED BY OFFICIAL TESTS
Following tests in the CNPP (1) laboratories, Silver ENIII safes were certified by APSAIRD (2) and awarded the A2P (3) label. A standard model from the series successfully completed a fire test in the CSTB (4) laboratories at Champs-sur-Marne (duration: 1 hour, temperature up to 925°C).

Silver ENIII SAFES PROTECTION AGAINST "COMMERCIAL RISKS"
The prime function of a safe is to provide the most effective overall "boltwork/defensive wall" configuration to protect against a given category of risk.
The ability of the Silver ENIII safe to withstand even the most powerful modern techniques and tools places it squarely in the "protection against commercial risks" category.
PROTECTIVE WALLS IN "CM3"* COMPOSITE
Models include a 103 mm-thick barrier of "CM3" within all defensive walls, including the door whose total thickness is 160 mm. "CM3" is a perfectly homogeneous extra-hard composite which is poured between two steel sheets on all six faces and further strengthened by metallic reinforcements.
The pouring process, and the composition of the compound, ensure the high resistance to compressive loads essential to resist mechanical cutting tools. In addition, tests have shown "CM3" to offer particularly good resistance to the oxy-acetylene torch and the percussion drill.
These properties immediately impede the penetration of any point attack on the walls. Vital boltwork components are further protected by special shields.
A HIGH-PERFORMANCE SYSTEM OF BOLTS
Along the opening edge, at the top and at the bottom, the door is locked closed by 35 mm diameter bolts. A dog bolt bar along the hinge edge forms a solid "bolt" over the full height of the door. Double rebates in the door and safe body form staggered rebates around all four edges to defeat any attack on the bolts and to delay the ingress of hot gas in the event of a fire.
A DOUBLE LOCKING SYSTEM
Once the safe door is dosed and the bolts are in place, the main "M2i" lock key turned and the combination on the CVS lock scrambled the bolt control mechanism is locked at several points. For greater security, these points are spread over the inside of the door, protected by its defensive wall. If any attempt is made to force the door, an active and passive relocking device irreversibly locks it closed.
