TRTL-30×6 Jewelry Safes

TRTL-30×6 Jewelry Safes are at the top of the ladder of commercial safes.    Lets start with what it means. First it is a label from UL or Underwriters Labratory.    So if you see any TRTL-30×6 you know its been tested and certified for what it is.

The TRTL stands for ToRch and TooL resistant. 30×6 means for 30 minutes of tool time burning or spinning on each side of the safe.    That is more impressive than it sounds. Because the average blow torch really isn’t going to do much damage on the safe. UL will use what is called a “Lance” which is like a blow torch on Mega steroids and a complete asbestos suit must be worn during its use.    Because the user will be submerged in a cloud of sparks and smoke the likes that no blow torch can through off.

It is also important to point out that even though it says 30 minutes of tool time or burn time.    The actual amount of time it would take to do this test is hours!    Because they are using a stop watch during the test, they will start and stop the watch several times and allow the metal to cool before they can put plastic cameras in the hole to scope the lock or see where they are inside the safe.

TRTL-30×6 safes are normally not found in homes and are designed mainly for banks and very high end jewelry stores. Don’t get me wrong we have sold these to individuals for home use and we set them in their garage.    Virtually turning them into a bank.

The TRTL-30×6 is very much over kill for most situations unless your insurance company has told you that is what you need.    We do get many people calling wanting this ultimate in maximum security safes and most times I try to discourage or at least tell them to talk with their insurance company before they buy one.

New TRTL-30×6 safes can run as much as $30,000.    Which is why we don’t carry any new models in stock. However, we do have refurbished models that start around $5000 and that includes shipping.
