Hollon Safe B1414C B-rated Safes

Hollon Safe B1414C Safes

The Hollon Safe B1414C comes a Sargent & Greenleaf dial lock.  This is considered the top UL listed dial lock in the industry and should last for decades.  This security steel safe is also a true b rated safe. Where others in the safe industry are thinning the steel (kind of like a 2×4 lumber) Hollon Safe has stayed with the accepted standard that has not changed in the last 100 years.  The door is true 1/2 inch thick steel and the body is true 1/4 inch thick steel.  This safe also comes with 4 bolt down holes. That way you can secure to the foundation.

Hollon Safe also uses over sized bolts at 1.25 inch thickness. Which is 25% larger than competitors bolt size. Makes this safe the finest in the industry.

Don’t Confuse Fire Safe with Security Safe

There are safes available that can protect your belongings from both theft and fire. You must remember, however, that a simple fire safe does not have the security features necessary to protect the contents from theft. Conversely, a security safe that is not rated for fire protection might keep the contents from catching alight, but the materials inside the safe will still be in danger from temperatures that can reach up to 1400 degrees Fahrenheit. Be sure to check all of the specifications before you purchase a safe, so that you can be sure that your safe can protect the way you expect it to.

Biometic Locks – Good or Bad

We all know that technology of the future is being developed every day and some of it is pretty far out there.  I’m sure many people find themselves thinking “wow, I never thought that idea would take off.”  It just so happens I am personally not a fan of Biometric safes.

Although this is supposed to be one of the most secure lock styles available, there are certainly flaws with the idea.  Safes with biometric locks generally come with the capability of programming so many prints into the lock – making it accessible by a certain group of people.  However, most people don’t think of that, and only program their own personal print.  In this case, if that person is away on vacation and has documents in the safe that are needed right away, they can’t just give their code to a friend and have them open it.  This is frustrating for the owner of the safe.

I came across a blog the other day writing about Biometric Safes.  The author points out good points, that it is the safe of the future and many thieves don’t mess with them, however it doesn’t point out the headache it can cause the customer. Until these locks are more user friendly and bugs are worked out of them, I suggest sticking with an electronic lock, in my personal opinion.

TRTL 30×6

I have never seen a safe so impressive until I saw these safes.  The Mutual TRTLx30x6 is a torch and tool resistant safe on all six side for 30 minutes.  This is not something you will find in any other safe except for these.

Those that are looking to protect items of high value and items that need to be protected from normal every day use are stored in these.  I once had someone tell me they had to wear monitors for radioactive substances to open the safe because of what was stored in it.  That should give you an idea just how secure these safes are.

I was doing some searching over the weekend about these safes and came across a pretty good blog.  The “Is a TRTLx30x6 safe for you” article gives just some general knowledge most people want to know about the safe.
