TL 30 Safes

TL 30 safes are safes that have been tested by UL to withstand burglary attempts and to protect the contents from damage due to fire.  A TL 30 burglary rating means that a professional locksmith has attempted to access the safe using common locksmithing tools, and was unable to do so in a period of 30 minutes.  This may not seem like a long time, but to a burglar it is – they rely on getting in and out quickly, and don’t have over 30 minutes to open a safe.  Besides, very few burglars have the skills necessary to open a TL 30 rated safe.

TL 30 rated safes also generally carry a fireproof rating.  A 1-1/2 hour fireproof rating means that the safe has been subjected to a 1700 degree F fire for a period of 1-1/2 hours, and that the temperature inside the safe did not rise above 350 degrees F.  This is a low enough temperature to protect your valuables from permanent damage.  The humidity is also measured inside the safe during the test, to ensure that the safe would protect against water damage due to the water used to put out the fire.  For more information on TL 30 safes.
