Which Fire Safe for me?

Fire safes are an important investment for the household. They are an important purchase because of the personal things we keep in our home such as passports, deeds, birth certificates, marriage certificates to name but a few. Some fire safe models are very heavy due to the level of protection required and we recommend where possible situating them on the ground floor and ensuring it is bolted down. 

Fire resistant safes are designed to protect different items and this is because paper and computer data tapes get damaged at different temperatures. Ensure you are protecting items with the right type of fire resistant safe and remember that computer tapes such as LTO or DAT tapes get damaged by fire at a much lower threshold than other items such as paper.

The benefits of a firesafe include:

  • All documents such as passports and title deeds are stored in the same place and easy to find
  • Different choice of fire ratings available
  • Choice of fire protection and models with a higher level of security
  • Choice of locking options with electronic lock being the widest to choose from
  • Good tip is to gather together items you want to store to see how big a firesafe you need
  • Having a fire resistant safe gives you the peace of mind that in the event of a fire your items are protected

Protecting images and videos from damage could not be simpler than purchasing a fire safe from our digital media storage range - you might think why do I need to do this when it is stored in the cloud, but who backs up the cloud?
