DID YOU KNOW that every 19 seconds a fire department in the United States is responding
to a fire? (National Fire Protection Association)
Sentry®Safe offers the best fire protection in the business. In fact we invented
fire-resistant storage containers 80 years ago. Our Safes can withstand temperatures
ranging from 1,150° F to 1,850° F.
Underwriters Laboratory(UL) tests are independent tests of Sentry®Safe Fire-Safe®
products. For a product to earn a UL classification, the documents/items stored
inside must remain completely undamaged after being subjected to ½ hour (1550°F
(843°C), 1 hour (1700°F (927°C) or 2 hours (1850°F (1010°C)
of fire exposure.
Only products with the Underwriters Laboratory(UL) mark have been tested to withstand
these stringent conditions.
Different strength UL tests are required for paper, media and sensitive material
storage. These tests, on top of the security that already comes with the Sentry®Safe
brand name, provide the ultimate insurance that your possessions are safe from harm
while inside a Sentry®Safe product.
In case that isn’t enough, Sentry®Safe products also undergo ETL Semko testing.
ETL Semko is an independent testing firm which verifies products are in compliance
with the manufacturer's specifications for fire endurance.
