The EVRH is the first depository safe of its kind for retail stores, restaurants, or any business environment. It incorporates the extra protection associated with a high security safe and an activated depository slot. Constructed of a high density composite door and body, this safe offers excellent burglary and fire resistant protection by providing a temporary storage for excess cash throughout the day. Accumulated cash can be transferred through a tamperproof slot into a secured inner compartment as a deterrent to armed robbery and internal theft. Cash management safes act as a convenient and secure way station between the cash drawer and final disposition of daily receipts, whether to a bank, armored car pickup or transfer to a high security safe.
