The Mechanical Malicious Acts Laboratory performs tests to validate the compliance of safes and strongrooms
The tests consist in perform the products with manual, electrical and/or thermal tools to meet the requirements of the standards.
The requirements are:
- "Total access" which usually involves opening the door in a destructive manner,
- "Partial access" which consists to perform a hole large enough for an arm to reach some of the valuables (this requirement does not apply to strongrooms),
- "Anchoring" which results in the removal of the safe,
- In addition, safes must be equipped with high security locks to resist non-destructive attempts at opening.
The classification of the products is used to select those capable of resisting break-ins, whether by amateur or experienced burglars.
