Stockinger safes – the true story.
We’ve been making exceptional safes for demanding customers at our factory in Neuried near Munich, Germany, since 1978. Company founder Hans Stockinger’s vision was to transform the unsightly safes and locked boxes that were the standard of the day into appealing interior design objects. The result: The world’s best safes.
A frequent question: How secure is a Stockinger safe?
There’s no doubt about it - a safe’s most important job is to protect its contents from unwanted access. That’s how the safe got its name. But does that mean that every safe is really safe?
No, of course not. That’s why Swiss and German insurance associations have defined security classes for safes. Most insurance companies worldwide apply the SSV and VDS security classes.
In a nutshell: Stockinger safes are as secure as your bank. No one has ever been able to break into a Stockinger safe.

each one of these masterpieces offers maximum security thanks to its unique design, armoured elements and patented locking system.
What to consider when buying a safe
The first question you should ask yourself is simple: Which and how many valuables should your safe hold? A watch connoisseur will look for different qualities in their safe than an art enthusiast or collector of historical documents. We generally recommend calculating at least an additional 30% in reserve space as collections tend to grow with time.
The second consideration is the value of the objects you are planning to keep in your safe. We recommend asking your insurance company which security class you need before purchasing a safe. The higher the SSV or VDS class, the higher the insured amount an insurance company will generally cover.
How are safes insured?
For a safe to be covered by an insurance company it needs to comply with certain security classes on which the insured value and premium are based. Most insurance companies throughout the world apply the standards defined by the VDS German Association of Property Insurers and the SSV Swiss Insurance Association.
