Keep in mind that danger never takes a vacation. Though some of the natural disasters like cyclones and hurricanes may be predicted, they cannot be controlled. But there are other incidents that can be manageable, like burglary and fire incidents.
Almost every home and business protects a valuable possession may it be jewelries or a number of documents, so a guaranteed safe haven for these things must be acquired. If the burglars would go as far as using explosives just to crack open your safe, thus, the owner must go as far also by having a burglar’s resistant and fire resistant safes for their little treasures.
Though it may sound ambitious, but on a very techy world such ours, nothing is really impossible when it comes to safety and even burglary.
Expert burglars nowadays use explosives, chemicals and even diamond grinding wheels aside from the typical common hand tools that can be bought over the counter of different construction and hardware stores. The actual time for the burglars to break into the safe is 15 minutes, but a TL-15 safes have successfully resisted any entry attempts by burglars.
A TL-15 safe is tool resistant for at least 15 minutes and can cover up to $125,000, it can also endure a fire with 1850° F temperature for 2 hours, making it burglar proof and fire proof.
In the field of safety, Underwriters Laboratories (UL) standard testing is known to be the best by making a safer world since 1894. They test and certify safes to be fire safe and burglary safe.
UL give safes two kinds of rating, fire ratings and burglary ratings. UL is a non-profit agency that tests and validates safe to ensure the construction and performance of the consumer’s products.
A fire proof safe can protect our possessions against the actual fire which are usually made of thin sheets molded together to form an inner and outer shell. The units contain insulating materials to maintain the temperature needed to keep any document still readable after a fire incident. In an actual fire, the safe can withstand no greater than 350° F for 30 minutes up to 4 hours duration. They are designed to maintain an internal temperature of 131° F for the documents inside.
Meanwhile, a burglar proof safe are made of solid steel plate or any equivalent depending on the tools that will be used and the valuables it would protect.
A safe given a TL-15 rating by UL have passed the UL 687 Testing Standard using the tools usually used by the testing engineers and expert burglars. To acquire this label, the safe must be constructed of 1-inch solid steel or equivalent to ensure its fire resistance and burglar resistance.
The rating TL-15 can be easily understood when it’s analysed, the code “TL” stands for “tool-resistant” meaning the common hand tools tested by UL can be endured by this kind of safe while the code “15” is the net working time the safe has been tested and endured any attempts to crack it open.
According to the safety security, there are at least fifty different types of attacks to crack open and burglar a safe and UL standard testing ensured that the best burglars don’t steal a penny because they are working on UL, testing and certifying the safe they produce.
There is nothing wrong in thinking of ways to prevent an incident where you could lose everything you treasure, because a treasure became a real treasure when it is sought after and safety is a cure for the uninjured.
