Safe & Vault Services is operated by Hamill & Son Safe Technicians. For over a decade Hamill & Son have been recognised within the industry as one of the top safe engineers in Europe. We are specialists in the non-destructive opening of safe locks such as Fichet, Tann, Systec, Chubb, Kaso, Weirtheim, Dudley, Milner, Chatwood, and others. We are one of the few operating locksmiths in Ireland actually equipped and skilled to pick open safe locks. We can pick open locks with lost keys or damaged keys. We are frequently called on to train safe technicians all over Europe and in the U.S.
In 2005 chief technician Will Hamill was selected from thousands of technicians all over the world by Discovery Channel for its pilot show “Impossible Heists” where he defeated the show’s security system within the challenge time winning the “impossible” challenge.
All our technicians and operational staff are certified by Kaba Mas and S&G Switzerland for all electronic lock types. All our installers are also fully qualified locksmiths. We are Ireland’s proven experts in safe and vault supply, emergency opening and repair, thanks to our decades of experience in high security safes, ATMs, bank vaults, and every safe within homes and businesses.
Amateur safe technicians or unqualified sales people can leave you with big losses when it comes to certified safes and vaults service or insurance requirements. Incorrect specification of a safe can result in a void insurance claim. Many big name companies employ sub-contractors with little real knowledge. Cutting a safe will invalidate it’s certification in most cases. Fitting an uncertified lock has the same result. This is all work for validated experts.
Safe & Vault Services has four full time staff.
