What To Look For When Purchasing A Commercial Safe?

When it comes to protect your business investing in a high quality commercial safe is a must. Not only it protect your valuable items and documents against theft but it also keep them safe from any damage caused by fire and floods.

Here are some key points to consider when buying a commercial safe:

UL Rating System

The UL rating system is the industry standard for testing and certifying safes for safety and security levels. 

The ratings range from “B” which offers the lowest level of security and should not be used to protect high value items and goes up to TL-60X6 which requires six sides to be broken before access is gained. 

For businesses looking for a reliable level of protection TL-30 safes are a great option and it offers 30 minutes of heavy duty resistance against break-ins attempts.

Fire Rating System

Another important consideration when purchasing a commercial safe is its fire rating system. This system grades how well the safe can protect stored items from exposure to fire or heat – with ½ Hour rate (protecting stored items against temperatures up to 1500°F within half an hour), 1 Hour rate (up to one hour) and 2 Hour rate (protects against fire and explosion for two hours) being the three main ratings available.
