FIRE PROTECTION / FIRE PROTECTION CLASSES FOR THE SAFE
The fire test takes place independently of the burglary protection test; this is also documented by an extra badge. A badge (certificate) from an approved institute is affixed to the inside of the door; The buyer should only orient himself by these badges.
The test takes place using the standard temperature-time curve (ETK) with a maximum at 1080 ° C for 60 (S 60) or 120 (S 120) minutes; including heating and cooling phase. The stay in the furnace lasts several hours. A drop test is part of the test - the hot safe is dropped into a gravel bed from a height of 9.15 m.
FIRE PROTECTION IN ACCORDANCE WITH EN 1047-1
A safe is tested for suitability for fire in a special procedure by the official materials testing institute for construction (MPA) in Braunschweig. A special fire test room is used in which the safes are subjected to a fire test in combination with a fall test. Many well-known testing institutes, such as VdS; ECB-S etc., use this fire protection test EN 1047-1 from the MPA in Braunschweig and certify their products such as the gun cabinet or safe with it.
The "Braunschweig Test" is divided into 2 parts and there are always two identical cabinets are used.
In part 1, the safe, safe or gun cabinet must pass a fire resistance test. The max. permitted temperature increases in this period of time inside the cabinet are not exceeded.
In part 2, a burst of fire and fall test must be passed. The safe, gun cabinet is heated to 1090 ° C within 30 minutes. A fall test from a height of 9.15 meters onto a gravel or ballast bed is then carried out within 4 minutes. After the drop test, the safe, safe or gun cabinet is heated again to 840 ° C for 30 minutes. The cabinet then remains in the fire room until it has clearly cooled down.

WHICH LOCK IS THE BEST?
The question of the optimal lock can only be answered individually. The following overview of the different lock types provides general information. Furthermore, of course, each of our sales consultants can advise accordingly.
There are four options for the type of lock:
- The double-bitted lock - is the easiest way to secure the fire-proof safe - you cannot forget a code! Two keys are supplied with the lock - please note that the keys must be stored in such a way that they are protected from unauthorized access. Because of the key safekeeping clause and the high risk of key theft, insurance companies recommend a numeric or electronic lock.
- The mechanical combination lock does not need electricity or a battery. The secret numbers can be changed as required (only the code owner can change this). The cabinet owner does not need a key and has no risk of loss.
- Electronic lock: this is the most popular type. The lock is a convenient way of securing the gun safe. Please note that the lock works with batteries and they need to be changed from time to time. If the battery fails, the lock can be supplied with emergency power from the outside. The PIN can be changed as often as you like.
- Fingerprint: easy opening with just a finger pressure. No more forgetting of codes or number combinations, misplacing or losing keys is a thing of the past. Up to 60 different fingerprint sets can be saved.
Tip: compare the advantages and disadvantages of the 4 different locks
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO STORE IN THERE?
You can store smaller and larger items and objects in a fireproof safe. Which size is useful and necessary should be carefully considered:
Private: There are smaller safes for smaller, important valuables such as jewelry, passports or cash. Data carriers such as DVDs and USB sticks can also be stored in appropriately certified cabinets.
Larger fire protection safes can be used for A4 files, papers and documents, but they can also be used as gun safes.
Commercial: Companies can store folders and documents (such as: business license, service contracts, etc ...) in it. If you want to use the cabinet for folders, you should first consider how many folders there should be - there are models of different sizes - the space ranges from a small cabinet for 5 folders to a cabinet with space for over 20 folders - depending on your needs. Since the safe is in use for a long time, it should not be forgotten that the number of folders tends to increase and not decrease over time!
Tip: Think about the purpose: for which things and how many things you want to put in the closet.
Once you have decided on a fireproof safe, the question still arises, where do I put the cabinet? Finding the right location for your vault is very important. The location should not be visible to everyone, the fewer people who know where your safe is, the more secure your valuables are.
For your fire safe, data protection safe, fire safe document cabinet, fire safe and fire safe data cabinet, it is particularly important to find a location that is not directly exposed to sunlight, as the fire protection insulation of the safe reacts to a rise in temperature. In addition, you should not set up your safe in rooms with high humidity.
An ideal location for your safe is an office or bedroom, as this is where burglars suspect your valuables and look for them first. This will prevent your entire apartment from being devastated as the burglar will concentrate on the safe.
Also consider the load-bearing capacity of your ceiling. The weight of the safe should never exceed this.
