Fire Safety The higher the fireproof rating, the more fireproof your safe will be. The ratings are labeled in terms of hours and degrees. The hour rating determines how many hours your documents would be safe in a fire and the degree rating is the temperature at which the contents will be held during that period of time.
Burglar Safety The right office safe should have an RSC rating or determination of the level of difficulty to break into it. The ratings are determined by professional locksmiths who use various techniques to attempt to break into it. Not all safes are rated for burglar safety. If you have difficulty locating one that is rated, fully evaluate its structure and the location of the bolts to determine for yourself how burglar-proof it is.
Choice of Locks There are a variety of different locks available on office safes. The typical lock type is mechanical, but there are also electronic locks available. The most secure safes offer a combination of both mechanical and electronic to ensure the safety of its contents.
