Fireproof Safes & Commercial Safes
When unexpected disasters like a fire happen, we are often caught unprepared. And, one of the worst things that could happen is losing valuables such as cash, legal documents, and important memorabilia. To protect your important assets, the best solution is to have a reliable fireproof safe. Whether at home or at the office, installing a reliable fireproof safe will save your valuables and ease your worries.
At Apex Locksmiths, we do more than improve your locks and security systems. We also offer the best quality home and commercial safes. We have a wide range of business safes and money safes that come in different sizes and locking mechanisms. If you are looking for a small fireproof safe for home use, we also have a number of options from trusted brands that will keep your most important items secure.
How Do Fireproof Safes Work?
At every safe’s door, you can find information on how long your particular safe can keep your items from being destroyed. It also tells the temperature the safe can withstand and what types of disasters it will protect against. The biggest thing to look for is UL Rating, which indicates how fire-resistant a safe actually is. The UL rating is followed by a sub-rating, which will tell you the expected time that your documents will go undamaged. For example, a UL Class 350 1-hour safe means that during the typical house or office fire of about 1700 degrees F, the safe will keep items in the safe below 350 degrees for approximately an hour.
If you live far away from a fire department or have fewer people around to catch the fire quickly, it would be best for you to get a safe with a higher rating. If you are unsure of your needs, talk to the experts at Apex Locksmiths. We can help you choose the best fireproof safe that’s right for your situation, location, and budget.
Important Items You Can Store in a Fireproof Safe
As you build your business or personal life, you collect important documents that need to be kept in a safe storage area. While your office drawers or home bookshelf may seem like a convenient location, they won’t be able to save your papers from a roaring fire. With all the things you have to deal with when your home or office goes under fire, having these documents safe from harm can make your life a little easier. Here’s a list of items you might want to store inside a fireproof safe:
- Passports, identification cards, and birth certificates
- Insurance policies for home, vehicle and life insurance
- Safety deposit box information, access codes, and keys
- Investment papers like stocks, bonds, bank accounts, and retirement funds
- Social security cards
- Personal wills and power of attorney documents
- Healthcare and employment documents
It is also a great idea to keep a thumb drive with family photos and important files in case the original items are destroyed during a fire. However, keep in mind that while your safe may be fireproof, it may still be susceptible to burglary. So, make sure to get a fireproof safe that is also strong enough to prevent thieves from gaining access.
