It’s all about convenience, security and peace of mind at Vault@268
The reason for starting Vault@268 was simple – to give people the power over their valuables, even when they’re safely deposited. Given the restrictions presented by safe deposit boxes in banks, where the client is bound by operating hours and the availability of personnel, the launch of Vault@268 back in 2015 was a game changer. Fast forward four years later, Vault@268 still enjoys the prestige of being Singapore’s first private, high-tech, and fully-automated safe deposit box facility that makes deposits and retrievals as easy as going to the ATM.
Where Privacy and Technology Meet
What is most attractive about Vault@268 is that it eliminates having to deal with institutions or people, as well as having to depend on official personnel to unlock doors for you. At the end of the day, it’s all about ease: Simply insert the access card to enter the secure room, enter your PIN code on the automated dispenser, open the safe deposit box with a personal key, deposit or retrieve your belongings, and finally, return it.
In addition, the facility was designed with the client’s privacy needs in mind, with a robotic arm doing the retrieving of the box for them. And in case unforeseen circumstances arise, the client may also assign a trusted individual as a co-renter to facilitate with emergency retrievals.
The automated deposit boxes come in two sizes and are made by Gunnebo, an international leader in security systems from Sweden. Whether they contain luxury timepieces, high jewelry, confidential business documents, or personal items of sentimental value, rest assured that the safe deposit boxes are in good hands because they are housed within a vault with thick concrete walls and Grade VIII European Certification Body, Security, Fire & Life Safety (ECB•S) certification, supported by the European Security Systems Association (ESSA).
Convenience Above All
Conveniently located at 268 Orchard Road, Vault@268 is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – with or without staff present.
Ms. Charlene Kang, Vault@268’s Executive Director, understands the need for this convenience, particularly with the fast-paced lifestyles her clients lead. Whether they are traveling for work, attending an event that requires them to wear their finery, or dealing with an emergency, clients have peace of mind knowing that whatever they need can be easily retrieved at any time of the day.
“When I was 13, my mum passed away and she put her will in a safe deposit box in a bank, but everything was frozen. My aunt had to apply for a Letter of Administration, but that would take another year,” reveals Ms. Kang. By knowing first hand the kind of setbacks people might face, she has taken matters into her own hands, resulting in a product that has evolved with the times.
In addition, Ms. Kang’s entrepreneurial spirit, paired with a keen interest in technology and robotics, as well as a finger on the pulse of changes in the privacy and security industry, gave her the head start she needed to create Vault@268. It also couldn’t have come at a better time, especially when she recognized that the safe deposit boxes of big banks were slowly becoming obsolete.
Four years into the business, Vault@268 has garnered itself a stellar reputation, earning it a place in the future of security solutions, as well as confidence from their discerning high net-worth clientele.
