A New Solution


International Bank Vaults operates South Africa's first and only private safety deposit vault in South Africa, providing a value added service to all major private bank clients. International Bank Vaults' facility is conveniently located at the Gateway Theatre of Shopping, Umhlanga, just minutes from Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The site was chosen for its proximity to some of the most significant business and residential developments in KwaZulu-Natal. In addition, the layout of the Gateway complex facilitates International Bank Vaults' strict security standards.

The idea for the company was conceptualised in 2004 and the facility became operational in April 2005.This valuable initiative came about as a solution to the huge waiting list for safe deposits being experienced by many individuals. Such facilities are not the core business of traditional banking and consequently there is no expansion growth being implemented in this key area by banks to meet public demand.


International Bank Vaults offers protection, confidentiality and convenient access to its clients most valuable possessions. The guiding principle behind International Bank Vaults is to offer clients peace of mind.

Theft or Natural disasters such as fires or floods can cause extensive damage to valuables stored in your home. The same principle applies at your workplace, where fire could destroy irreplaceable valuables or electronic data.

International Bank Vaults operates a secure safety deposit vault, which is a modern-day fortress, constructed of steel-reinforced concrete, and protected by a sophisticated, multi-tiered security system. It is monitored by highly trained professionals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
