Fire accidents rank number one when it comes to statistics on loss of property and documents in organizations. Every year, organizations across the world lose billions of dollars' worth of property to fire accidents, most of which turns out to be documents and other physical objects of value.
To cut down on or even prevent this loss of property, businesses are now turning to quality fireproof safes to store valuable documents and other artifacts. Fireproof safes and file cabinets are among the most sought after office storage systems today.
Fire resistant safes and file cabinets are made of special materials that are highly resistant to fire, high temperatures and the physical effects of the fire, while at the same time, protecting their contents. Fire resistant safes are usually classified into different categories or classes based on how long they can last in a fire at a certain temperature.
There are models that can range anywhere from half an hour to four hours. Fireproof safes are put through rigorous fire resistance tests to ensure that their contents are fully protected from the effects of the fire. Fireproof safes are quite expensive, and come with the added cost of greater vulnerability to physical attack. Fire safes serve as excellent safe-boxes too.
