- Protect your safe from any kind of damage the installation process may cause. Find something to cover it with so it won’t get all dusted and scratched.
- Be sure to measure everything up. Put some marks on the floor where you decided to install your safe.
- Make some holes in the safe so it will be easier to mount it.
- Now it’s time to cut out the space for your safe. Pick a tool that is the most convenient for you. You may use a hammer drill, rotary hammer, jackhammer, etc. After you choose the instrument, start digging.
- Put your safe box in the hole to see if it fits in. The doors should be on the same level as the floor. Make sure to leave some extra space for the concrete on the sides.
- After the fitting, drill some holes in the floor for mounting. Then clean everything out, all the dust and broken or unnecessary pieces of concrete. Put the safe inside and make sure it’s in the center. Now mount your safe with some bolts.
- Your safe is inside and now it’s time for the final touches. Start filling all of the empty spaces with concrete. After you’re done, leave it to sit for 48 hours so that it can solidify.
