Fire Safes – Making the Right Choice
When choosing a proper safe for fire protection be sure to check for its fire protection rating. These ratings are really the only way to know the level of fire protection the safe has.
The Underwriters Laboratory (UL) and Intertek’s Electronic Testing Lab (ETL) are two of the most highly respected independent testing facilities preforming fire testing on safes. Safes with a UL or ETL fire rating have been proven to withstand rigorous fire testing. These tests prove that the safe can maintain an internal temperature of less then 350 degrees Fahrenheit while exposed to a fire with temperatures above 1,700 degress Farhenheit for a specific time duration. The safes are exposed to the extremely harsh conditions for intervals ranging from 45 minutes to up to two hours.
