Data and media is easily damaged and should not be exposed to temperatures over 125° F or humidity over 85%. Even a hot cup of coffee can be a real hazard, so imagine what a fire could do. The biggest mistake you can make is to store data or media in a fire safe. A typical fire safe is rated for temperatures up to 350° F to protect paper and will not protect your data or media. A data/media safe uses composite aggregate material to keep the temperatures below 125° F. Along with that material is a thick wood liner which protects data/media from moisture and from outside magnetic interference.
You can purchase a data/media safe that is small enough to fit inside your larger safe if you don’t have a large amount of sensitive items to protect. Many manufacturers also make these type of safes with added burglar protection if this is a requirement. Contact one of our safe professionals in Portland, Seattle or Spokane with any questions you might have about data/media safes.
