Fire safes, two of the most important words in home security

If fire safes or fireproof safe is not listed on the label of a safe or anywhere on the packaging then don’t expect your valuables to be spared in a house fire. Most house fires don’t last that long. The home usually burns to the ground in a few minutes. Therefore, it is extremely important that your belongings are safeguarded while the blaze is occurring.

The fireproof safe rating

The ratings of fire safes determine their longevity during a home fire. Protecting the contents and preserving them until the fireproof safe can be salvaged when the home is extinguished is the main goal of fire safes. When looking at fire safes and their ratings refer to the UL label or ETL certified label on the packaging. Typically, the greater the amount time of protection provided determines the cost of the safe.

Determine the size of safe needed

If your budget conscious, you will need to determine the size of safe you need. An exaggerated example would be that you would not want a room vault to store a couple of gold coins. But you do want to know exactly what you plan on preserving in the fireproof safe before you buy. And don’t forget to allow for room for future growth as well.

To sum up, fire safes add safety and security to some of your precious items. A fireproof safe will give you the peace of mind knowing that should a fire occur; you will have the ability to retrieve those items when the dust and ash settles.

This could even safe you’re life or someone in your family’s life since most people die in fires while trying to gather up last minute items instead of leaving the home when they should.

Read reviews and do your due diligence when shopping for a fireproof safe. Your life could depend on it.

      Isn't it easier to just put money at the bank? Well unless someone is earning the money illegally then it think it would be really helpful to them to hide their dirty money.

      Nice lens though ;)

      @Katyusha: That is a sad story. People tend to realize the importance of a home safe only after they have been victimized. I hope they can recover at least some of their items.

      @Sylvestermouse: Yes most of the other stuff is a little more easily replaceable but the documents take a little longer to duplicate. Thanks for stopping by
