Fire-Resistant Safes

Fireproof safes are designed to protect contents under extreme temperatures for a predetermined length of time. The specifications vary for each safe design, and each includes information on tested and approved usage.


Fireproof Media Vault: Fireproof media vaults protect electronic storage devices, CDs, DVDs, and other technology in the event of a fire. The locking safe holds a wide range of media and multimedia items with a secure lock and heat protection for approximately 60 minutes at temperatures up to 1700-degrees Fahrenheit.

Fireproof Storage Cabinet: A fireproof storage cabinet provides the spacious storage capacity of a cabinet with the security of a safe and the added protection of tested fireproof performance. These cabinets withstand extreme temperatures for specified lengths of time, which are detailed in the documentation provided for each design.

Insulated Media Storage Safe: Media storage with insulation helps protect contents from extreme temperature changes. Many insulated media storage safes are fireproof, protecting for 60 minutes or other specified length of time. The protection will vary between storage units but generally offers heat protection of over 1000-degrees.


Adjustable Shelves: Adjustable shelves rest on shelf clips or shelf pegs that fit into predrilled holes along the inner sides of a cabinet or bookcase. The holes are set at distributed intervals and accommodate a variety of shelf positions for different storage needs.

Grommets: Grommets are holes placed in strategic and discreet areas within a cabinet to allow wire pass-through for networking or connecting devices. External grommets can provide wire access for reaching power supply, internet connection cables, or other wire management and access.

High-Security Locks: High-security locks reduce risk of tampering and protect contents for greater peace of mind. Data safes, media vaults, and other secure storage cabinets come in a variety of styles with high-security options for many.

Construction Materials

Eco-Friendly Powder-Coat Finish: Paint finish for steel cabinet components is often cured to yield a smooth, matte or non-glossy finish that provides durable protection against everyday use. The paint is often environmentally friendly and the finish protects from exposure to the elements, as well as significant scratch-resistance to reduce rust, corrosion, and other damage.

Scratch-Resistant Finish: Environmentally friendly powder-coat paint is cured for the powder-coat finish and produces a durable, scratch-resistant color that protects steel or metal components from damage caused by everyday use or exposure to the elements.

After-Fire Replacement: After a fire, the lifetime warranty of our fireproof safes and fireproof storage cabinets includes free replacement for immediate continued support and protection of the contents.

Impact-Resistant Design: Impact-resistant design refers to the use of shock and impact absorbing materials such as PVC plastics, vinyl, and other durable materials. The impact-resistance protects from everyday bumps and use, maintaining structural integrity and strength throughout the cabinet or storage unit.

Lifetime Warranty: Lifetime warranty provides repair and/or replacement for specified storage units, safes, and/or parts of the overall unit for the length of use. With fireproof safes and vaults, the lifetime warranty includes replacement following a fire for continued quality support.

Media Storage Capacity: The media vault and media storage safes include detailed specifications for maximizing the storage capacity. For example, if the media vault is used for storing only CDs and DVDs, it may have a maximum capacity of 40 discs, whereas if used to store 3.5" classic diskettes, it can store over 100. The media storage capacity is a guide to help maximize storage use with fewer vaults and safes for cost-effective protection of important media.

UL Class 125: UL Class 125 refers to safes that can protect flexible computer disks in the event of a fire. The UL specifications for Class 125 determine that the storage unit can protect contents from temperatures up to 1700-degrees Fahrenheit with further specifications for 1-hour, 2-hour, and 3-hour durations depending on the design.

UL One-Hour Classification: UL, or Underwriters Laboratories, one-hour classifications specify the protection provided, by tested fireproof safes and similar storage units, for the duration of one hour at predetermined maximum temperatures.
