Fire ratings are kind of a misnomer. Because on the paid for rating system it does not take into account the actual temperature of the flames, and what is being stored in safes and what is it’s flashpoint.
At Ironman safe we try to provide adequate fire protectionfor your guns, papers and jewelry. Unlike a lot of safes that are being flooded into the big chain stores from Chinese Manufacturing with dubius fire rating claims that could lull you into thinking you have more protection than you actually have.
The imports are doing everything in their power to create lighter safes. Unfortunately safes are NOT like laptops, bigger IS better in the safe world. That is why we do a full exterior powder coating that rejects rust when dowsed by a fireman.
