Research Safes Before Buying

It is a very good idea to purchase a safe to protect your valuable jewelry and documents, but you should be sure to research your possibilities carefully. Purchasing a fire safe is not the same as purchasing a security safe, though it is possible to find models that include both features. House fires can burn at temperatures of up to 1400 degrees Fahrenheit, so if you have purchased a security safe that doesn’t feature fireproofing, you could lose important documents. The Hollon HS-320-E is a popular fireproof safe, and with one of these, you can rest easy, knowing your belongings are secure.

Understanding Fire Proof Ratings

When you are searching for a fire proof safe, then it is important to note that they will have different ratings that will indicate the temperatures that the safe can withstand and the amount of time. For instance, the UL ½-hour fire endurance test means that your safe would endure a fire that burns at 1550 degrees Fahrenheit for up to thirty minutes. For longer protection times, you can also find a UL 1-hour fireproof safe and a UL 2-hour fireproof safe. These safes have been rigorously tested, so you can rest assured that they will live up to the ratings that have been assigned.

Fire Fyter Fireproof Safes

I have been writting recently about Fire Fyter’s Fireproof Safe manufacturing being stopped in the USA and being moved to China.  The models that are listed on ValueSafes website are currently as of this writting made in Ohio.  As they sell out of stock we will be marking them as sold out until they get the Chinese models shiped. 

So you have a limited time to get a made in the USA safe.  People have asked if the prices will go down once they are in stock from China.   I don’t know that answer on these fireproof safe models.  However, if its like other things they may drop a bit in the begining just to get the brand moving again. 

We are still waiting to see if our favorite made in the USA fireproof safes will be of decent quality once shipments start coming in.  I will remove the made in the USA label once they are in so as long as you see the label and its in stock you will know they from Ohio.  Until then you can check them out here Fire Fyter Fireproof Safes.
