Different Safes for Different Needs

The type of safe that you purchase will definitely depend on your particular needs. Most people do well enough with the lowest classification of protection, because they are just trying to keep documents or a few pieces of jewelry out of sight. You can figure out what kind of safe to buy by checking the letters in the safe name. TL means that the safe is impervious to hand tools, while TRTL refers to torches and hand tools. The TXTL means that the safe is protected from hand tools, torches, and explosives. These will be followed by a number, which states how many minutes someone must work at the safe, such as TXTL-60.

Don’t Assume You Don’t Need a Safe

Even if you think you live in a quiet and safe neighborhood, you are still at risk for a home invasion or a house fire. Studies show that a burglary occurs every fifteen seconds in the United States, with over two million home invasions occurring last year. With those statistics in mind, you can hardly argue the fact that you should have somewhere safe to keep your valuable belongings, as well as your important documents. Even the lowest rated safe, the TL-15, can keep your belongings protected against hand tools for up to fifteen minutes. Since most thieves spend less than five minutes inside, you can rest a bit easier.

We gave an overview of the TRTL-30×6 series of jewelry safes from Mutual Safes in a previous post.  This posts goes into the details of how these top of the line safes are constructed, and what sizes are available.

The TRTL-30×6 series uses a concrete material with inner and outer magnesium steel hardplates.  The concrete material contains nuggets and carbon fibers that increases its tensile strength and gives the material a density of 26,000 Psi.  The door frame and each individual bolt chamber is protected by reinforced armor plating to resist even the most determined attack.  Available locking mechanisms are UL listed Group 1 combination dial or electronic keypad.  Multiple relockers are synchronized to keep the safe locked in the event of an attack.

The TRTL-30×6 series is fireproof tested at 1750 degrees F for a period of 2 hours, without the temperature inside the safe rising above 350 degrees F.  The TRTL stands for “Torch and Tool Resistant”, and is a UL standard, one of the highest available.  These safes are available in 4 sizes — 30″ x 30″ x 32″, 43″ x 30″ x 32″, 67″ x 30″ x 32″, and 69″ x 44″ x 36″.  The safes weigh 2000, 2600, 3800 and 5500 lbs. respectively!  Value Safes carries these safes in like-new factory reconditioned versions which are priced at less than half the price of new units.  They can be seen at the following link:  TRTL-30×6 Series Jewelry Safes.
