All about Cash Safes and Security Safes
Cash safes are ideal for protecting valuable items such as money, jewellery and paper work/documents where fire protection is not a priority. These security safes are suitable for the home and business. It is important to purchase a security safes that is matched to the value it has to protect. These safes are graded by a given cash rating. The cash rating on a safe will help you decide the grade of the safe you need. Insurers typically give up to 10 times the cash rating of the valuables. For example, a £1,000 cash rating would become £10,000 for material contents (Please check this with your insurer first). Cash safes are designed to offer burglar resistance. The level of protection offered will depend upon the design of the safe i.e body thickness, (single or double walled construction) door thickness, locking mechanism and weight of the safe. All these design features will help determine the cash rating given to the safe.
All about Data Safes
Data safes are designed to protect your computer and media data, such as video and cassette tapes, from fire. Standard fire safes are NOT able to do so because all types of data media are extremely sensitive to heat. Data materials are much more fragile than paper documents and therefore have special requirements. Diskettes, for example, can be destroyed at temperatures far below the maximum specified for paper. All data safes ensure that the inner temperature of the safe remains below the melting point of 52 degrees Celsius (the temperature that would cause damage to magnetic media) for up to 2 hours depending on the model. Storage of disks also requires humidity levels to remain less then 85%. Data safes protect data media against all known risks; fire, heat, humidity, magnetism, burglary, sabotage and unauthorised access.
All about Paper Safes and Fire Safes
Fire safes are designed to provide a secure fireproof enviroment for the storage of paper documents. This is achieved by ensuring the inner temperature of the safe, cupboard or cabinet remains below 175 degrees Celsius, the temperature that would cause damage to paper. Fire protection safes, cupboards & cabinets are subjected to a variety of tests in time incriments of 30, 60, 90 & 120 minutes within a controlled environment to make certain their maintainability. These safes are ideal for storing valuable documents such as wills, deeds, passports, birth certificates etc.
