Challenger has been in business since 1985, emerging from the closure of the Lord Safe Company’s New Zealand operation. We have developed a manufacturing niche for Safes and related products, particularly after we became the only remaining New Zealand manufacturer in 1999.
We pride ourselves on making “real” Safes, ranging from small domestic 25L capacity models up to large 500L high-grade models weighing over 2 tonnes. The Safes are made to an Australian/New Zealand Industry standard (AS/NZS 3809) which recommends a “Grading System” for security protection based upon time of breaching the safe; i.e. how long it takes "the burglar boys" to break in! Challenger was involved with the Australian Standards Committee for the compilation of the 3809 Safe & Vault standards.
We have invested significant time & money to redesign our Safes for quality of manufacture and better ergonomics. The new designs have been rated as "World Class" by experienced industry professionals on both sides of the Tasman.
As the only specialist Safe manufacturer left, we are able to tailor a new Safe to our Customer’s requirements. We have also developed ancillary and “after-market” security solutions for our Customers as their own requirements have changed.
We offer a variety of services to Customers including:
Fault Service: (24hours x 7days) Our technicians will go to your site and repair and/or advise on any problems that you are experiencing with your equipment.
Safe Lock Outs: (24hours x 7days)We have specialist technicians to get your safe open.
Combination Changes:For security reasons, it is recommended that combinations are changed regularly. Our technicians can assist with this process.
Preventative Maintenance: We recommend our Annual Service to ensure smooth operation of your Safe from year to year. The service involves an extensive checklist of all working parts, including an inspection of the lock mechanisms.
Lost/extra keys: We provide a key cutting service.
Refurbishment of existing safes: We use our extensive factory experience to renew the look of your old Safe, update locking systems if required, and reconfigure the internal fit-out to meet your current needs.
Delivery/Relocation: We specialize in freighting Safes nationwide and can arrange delivery worldwide. Let our experienced movers and technicians help organise the installation/relocation of your Safe. In the Auckland region and for specialist jobs nationwide we recommend and use Safe Haulage for "peace of mind" installations.
Disposal: If you no longer need your safe we can arrange to dispose of it. Dumping is no longer required as our recycling company is able to handle even the biggest Safe and turn it in to clean fill and reusable steel.
We see integrity as a keystone to our business, and we believe our own high standards coupled with the Code of Ethics of the NZ Security Association we belong to are fundamental to our Customers' faith in the qualities of our products and service and therefore the ongoing success of the Company. We strive to "delight the Customer".
