Let’s talk fire protection. Safes can range from a fire protection of 30 minutes to a whopping 150 minutes. When considering which fire protection rating you require, first decide where your safe will be located. Fire on the ground can be about 1200F degrees but on the second floor of your home or business, fire can measure about 2,000F degrees.
So if you are looking for a safe to place on a second or third floor, you may require a longer fire protection. Another thing to consider is the integrity of both the safe and its fire protection. As for Ed’s rule of thumb, go for a protection of at least an hour. To see Ed’s recommendations, watch this video.
