Fire Safes Ratings
When deciding on a fire safe it is important to be aware of the safe’s fire rating. Tests for fire ratings are performed by the independent testing facilities of Underwriters Labortory (UL) and Intertek’s Electrical Testing Lab (ETL). These ratings provide the customer with the fire protection level the safe offers. The tests subject the safe to a fire temperature in excess of 1,700 degrees Fahrenheit for a set exposure duration. All the while maintaining an internal temperature of no greater than 350 degrees Fahrenheit. By passing such tests the safe is then awarded a certificate. These range from 45 minutes to two hours.
Below are the Underwriters Laboratory (UL) fire safe labels for one hour and two hour ratings:
Here are Intertek’s ETL fire protection labels for two hours, one and a half hours and one half hour:
