Good morning James, and welcome from Florida (Tampa Bay area). I also had to bolt my safe to the wall rather than the floor. What you will need to do is to be sure that you bolt it directly into the center of a stud. You will also need to be sure that you have a piece of plywood between the wall and the back of the safe to account for the width of the molding at the base of the wall. You will see what I am talking about when you position the safe against the wall and find the bit of space between the two. I also put down a couple of pieces of ceramic tile under the safe to be sure I had a level surface for the safe to sit on.... Hope this is of some help .

Welcome from Florida. Is your loft under heat and air or it is subject to extreme heat and cold? That could lead to issue with rust if not properly.
If concrete floors are in the mix, you'll want something between the concrete and the steel to prevent chemical interactions.
