If the unthinkable happens, are you protected? Each year, homes and businesses across the country lose valuable, sentimental, and sensitive documents to fires. While you probably have an insurance policy for reimbursement, this won’t bring your documents and possessions back. At U R Safe, we supply and install fire resistant safes to customers across Australia. We can help you protect yourself from those situations we all think will never happen to us!
Fire Ratings For Safes
Fire resistant safes are rated by time, usually ranging from 30 minutes protection to 2 hours. This relates to the amount of time items inside the safe are adequately protected from flames and extreme temperatures. It’s also important to note that these styles of safes are not sufficient for data storage. Hard drives, USB sticks, tapes, CDs, and other magnetic media storage devices are much more susceptible to damage at lower temperatures. For safes to protect this kind of data, see our Data Safes page.
While fire resistant safes are extremely effective forms of protection against heat and flames, it’s impossible for these to be completely ‘fireproof’. We warn against buying safes from companies using misleading language and claiming to sell fireproof safes. The two terms are often interchanged in sales material, however, if you expect your documents to be protected in any fire scenario, you’re going to be bitterly disappointed. While safes may be rated to be fireproof, you should always check the rating to learn how long the contents will actually be protected. Don’t get fooled by outlandish, incorrect claims.
Fire Resistant Home Safes
At U R Safe, we provide home safes to give your important personal documents such as birth certificates, or insurance papers, protection in the event of a fire. Sadly, many homes in Australia are lost to fires each year, and the loss of these kinds of documents only adds to the stress and heartache. We can supply and install fire resistant home safes to you anywhere in Australia.
Fire Resistant Filing Cabinets
Fire resistant filing cabinets are an excellent choice for businesses looking to keep both documents and data safe. Paper documents and data drives are stored in the same cabinet, with the bottom draw being solely for data. This means all your important information is stored in one place, and protected from fire for up to 2 hours. The bottom data draw can be converted if not required, giving you even more document storage.
