Safe Selection Guidelines

  1. Fire

    Safes provide protection from fire. Plastic or metal storage boxes provide little or no protection from fire and heat. Paper chars at 405 degrees whether it is exposed to fire or not. Every 38 seconds a residential fire occurs in the United States. Over 300,000 residential fires occur annually. Residential fires account for $4.4 billion of property loss each year.

  2. Theft

    Safes provide peace of mind especially when you're away from your home or office. 4.1 million households are burglarized in the United States each year. Most home break-ins occur between 10 am and 2 pm. Source: Bureau of Justice.

  3. Safety and Security

    If you own a gun, consider the personal liability for how your gun is used, even if you're not the one using it. Reports of over 2 million stolen guns are on file at the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). Over 7,000 violent crimes are committed by juveniles each year using guns found in their own homes.

  4. Protection

    Safes help complete your security and fire protection needs.

    Our homes and offices are full of things that are important to us. Some are replaceable, Others are not. Consider this:

    • TV DVD, VCR Insurance replacement

    • Stereo, Camera

    • Family Heirlooms Irreplaceable

    • Lifelong collectibles

    • Baby Pictures

    • Photo Albums

    Odds are that you or someone you know will experience a devastating loss at some point in your lifetime. Do what is necessary to protect yourself and your family from a completely devastating loss by selecting a safe that will meet your requirements.

  5. Extend the Life of Collectibles

    Another one of the timesaving benefits of a safe is their ability to preserve and extend the life of collectibles that are sensitive to light and humidity. When the love of a hobby turns into a collector's business with values reaching into the thousands of dollars, a safe can help protect the value and original look of these items. Stamps, coins, cards, statues, art, photos and many other collectibles located inside the safe are protected from damaging ultraviolet light. A controlled atmosphere to reduce humidity is also achieved when the safe is installed with an optional dehumidifier. Electric dehumidifier rods help reduce moisture inside the safe by raising the ambient temperature 2-3 degrees from the heat it generates. Installed through the back of the safe, the dehumidifier is warm to the touch and virtually eliminates any rust and mildew buildup on valuables. The standard 12-inch dehumidifier works for most 60" tall safes, but longer dehumidifiers may be required in larger models to reduce condensation.
