ITR-Certified Fire Protection
Protecting your valuables from fire damage is just as important as protecting them from theft. Our revolutionary design of multiple layers of fireboard, dead-air space, and state-of-the-art welding techniques has raised the bar in fire protection. Our safes have been tested and certified in independent scientific testing facilities, passing the rigorous fire-endurance testing with flying colors. All of our standard safes come with fire protection that starts at 75 minutes in the Centennial line and increases to an amazing 125 minutes in the Ultimate line.
All Heritage safes feature Palusol fire seal around the entire inside perimeter of the door, which not only increases the fire resistance but also protects your valuables from water damage that might otherwise occur as a result of fire-fighting efforts.
Our Legacy and Ultimate safes take fire protection yet one step further with our unique Pyro-Shield thermal blanket—with a maximum temperature rating of 2300°F—placed in the ceiling of the safe, where it typically gets hottest during a fire, and in the door, which is usually the weak link in fire protection.
Note: Heritage safes, like most home, office, and gun safes that offer fire protection, are designated as fire resistant rather than fireproof. Fire protection is dependent on many factors, including duration of the fire, available fuel, and location and intensity of heat.
