Understanding Safe Ratings

April 11th, 2012

Safes are not all created equally. You can actually select the level of security you want your safe to have, from a classic wall safe to a fireproof gun safe. The letters that follow the name of the safe will let you know what you’re looking at. The TL rating means that hand tools will not open the safe. TRTL refers to the safe being impervious to hand tools and torches. The TXTL is the strongest class, with protection against hand tools, torches, and explosives. Most general consumers will find that the lowest classification is plenty, but it’s nice to know that more protection is possible.
