A fireproof safe is a very prudent investment for a business. But how should you best use it? In this article, we’ll cover the items that businesses should keep in a safe or vault.
It seems like every summer catastrophic wildfires are in the news. Homes and businesses turned to ash. Those images are burned into most of our minds. You may not be able to control the weather, but your business doesn’t have to be victimized if you keep your valuables securely protected.
Here are 8 items that should be stored in a fireproof safe or vault at all times.
When you choose a safe or a vault, don’t assume that it is rated against fire. Check for a fire rating from the Underwriter’s Laboratory, an independent organization that tests the capability of safe and vault products. Ideally, you want a product that can keep paper safe. This means internal temperature shouldn’t rise above 350 for 30 minutes or more. You can read more about fire ratings here.
