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.
