Fire Resistant Safes

Each year, fires are directly responsible for billions of dollars in property damage and hundreds of lost lives. Although fire safes are in no way a deterrent to fire, a quality fire safe can at least provide protection for your important non-negotiable documents, and pictures.

Fire safes are designed and built to be resistive to fire. U.L. testing carries three basic resistive ratings:

  • 1 hour
  • 2 hour
  • 2 hour plus impact

For the majority of fires, one or two hour safes provide excellent protection. Following the the format of traditional safes, fire safes usually come with more advanced organizational options. The basic design of a good fire resistive safe is a hollow sheet metal casing filled with fire resistive insulation.

Special consideration for commercial buyers:
The more fire resistant a building is, the hotter it's contents will burn. Businesses in well-built fire resistive structures should invest in a 2-hour U.L. rated safe. Check with your builder or local fire marshal to get an estimate of your building's fire resistiveness.

Fire safes offer only baseline theft deterrence. Negotiable documents, cash, or jewelry should be stored in a good quality burglary and fire resistant safe . If your important records or documents are stored on microfiche, floppy diskettes, or other digital media, consider investing in a media cooler insert or separate media cabinet .

If theft deterrence isn't a consideration but fire protection is, consider investing in a fire-resistant filing cabinet . These cabinets offer excellent fire protection for your tax records, insurance policies, customer lists, etc.

What our customers say:

Years ago, Sterling was in the market for a company to take care of our security needs. On recommendation from another bank's security officer, Allied Security was selected and has more than lived up to their reputation of being second to none when it comes to equipment value, personal attention, and exceptional service. For anyone seeking a "security partner," I enthusiastically recommend Allied."
