Northern Ireland’s first Safe Deposit Box facility to open in Belfast City


Building work is underway at a secret location in Belfast for an impenetrable vault which will house thousands of safe deposits boxes.

When it is completed later in the year the multi-million pound vault will be accessible only after a series of security checks including retina, facial and fingerprint recognition, access card and pin – and security guards will be on duty 24/7.

Inside, up to 20,000 boxes in various sizes will be available to tuck away all your treasures such as:

  • photos
  • human ashes
  • cash
  • jewellery
  • gold bullion
  • documents
  • hard drives and USB sticks

In fact pretty much anything you are determined to keep from prying eyes and pilfering hands can be kept safe for a rental fee for the safe deposit box.

But there are a few rules users must sign up to.

There are five items the new Belfast Vaults will not allow to be stored: liquids, gases, firearms, narcotics and perishables.

Nigel Doolin, Director of Operations told Belfast Live: “This will be the first independent safe deposit box vault in Northern Ireland. We will initially open with about 3,000 boxes but we will have a final capacity of between 15,000 and 20,000 boxes.
