Tann and John Tann Safe Opening Service

At Key Elements we provide a specialist safe and vault opening service for any age or model of John Tann or Tann branded Safes, Vaults and Strongrooms.

We are based in Colchester in Essex and travel all over the UK to open Safes and Vaults.

Our local areas are London, Hertfordshire, Essex, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire. We can also travel further within the UK & Europe just ask.

Lockouts on a John Tann or Tann Safe or vault can because of lack of maintenance, lost keys, forgotten or unknown combination, and many other faults can occur that will stop a safe or Strong room from opening and cause a lock out!

It is not uncommon for a John Tann or Tann Safe to have had a lock changed at some point during its life, as many are older, and some are verifable antiques, and so they could be found with other brands of safe locks fitted and even electronic safe locks.

We use the most advanced methods to open safes and vaults using safe lock picks and decoders and many closely guarded secrets we have developed ourselves.

With some faults the Safe or Vault might need to be drilled to deal with a fault for example if the lock appears to work but the safe or strong room will not open, then it will most likely need to be drilled to investigate the cause of the lock out and get it open.

First thing to remember is a safe or vault is designed to be drill proof, explosive proof, thermal cutting proof, grinder proof and any other way that has been employed in trying to open a safe. They will have additional devices that will get set off if drilling by an amateur or an inexperienced Locksmith, inexperienced Safe Engineer or a burglar
