A keysafe is as the name suggests: a safe to hold keys. Often used in homes that have cleaners whilst no one is present, enabling the cleaners to access the house without being in possession of the actual key, they are a useful tool. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, meaning they are used by people from all walks of life, from private individuals to multinational companies. They are convenient, tidy and most of all a safe place to store keys.
What is a Keysafe?
A keysafe is, as shown above, a safe in which to store your keys. More and more often, they are used in buildings where many keys are necessary, such as hotels, motels, nursing homes, hospitals and so on. But individual people will also use keysafes, giving them the peace of mind that all their keys are in one place and that only certain people (who hold the key or code to the keysafe) can access them.
Because they are so varied, they come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes, ranging from keysafes that hold a single key and are compact and portable, to huge safes that will hold further integrated safes for other valuables or classified documents.
