Why Should I Buy a Fireproof Safe? FAQ’s & All the Basics You Need to Know


A fireproof safe could be the perfect purchase for you. If you’re thinking about buying one or are maybe unsure as to why you need one, then check out these frequently asked questions to tell you all you need to know: 


What is a fireproof safe?

Simply put, a fireproof safe is a type of safe that’s designed to protect the contents from fires. It’s made out of fire-resistant materials that ensure everything inside remains unharmed. Typically, these safes have to layers of metal – one on each side of the fire-resistant material. This helps to protect the material from any other outside forces like physical knocks and scrapes. 


Why should someone buy a fireproof safe?

Nobody ever plans for a fire – they don’t tend to be things that you can predict. In most cases, fires happen as a result of accidents. Therefore, you have limited time to react in this situation, and your first and only thought should be to evacuate the premises. As such, if you have any personal or valuable belongings, then they could be destroyed by the fire. If you have a fireproof safe, then you can keep your most prized and important belongings inside it, protecting them from any fire damage.  


In essence, a fire safe just adds an extra layer of protection and security for those items that you really can’t afford to lose. 


What to consider when buying a fireproof safe?

Naturally, the first thing to consider is the level of protection it provides. Some fireproof safes offer more protection than others, which means they can protect certain items better than others. For example, if you need to protect paper documents, then your fireproof safe can’t let the temperature go above 350F or they’ll combust. By comparison, if you have magnetic media, then the safe can’t go above 125F. So, check the fireproof information to see how cool the safe can remain. 


Likewise, check the level of protection in terms of minutes. Fire safes usually have three levels: 30 mins, 60 mins, and 120 mins. Obviously, the more protection, the better. 


Then, you have to think about the size of the fireproof safe. How big of a safe do you need? It depends on what you’re storing and how much space you physically have to keep the safe on your premises. 


What do fireproof safes cost?

Of course, the price is also a consideration when buying your fire safe. This can vary depending on the factors we spoke about above. You can find some large fireproof safes that are hundreds of dollars, then small fireproof safe boxes that are under $100. More often than not, if you want a high-quality fire safe, then you should be prepared to pay a few hundred dollars for it – if not more. 


What’s the difference between a cheap fireproof safe and a more expensive one?

Realistically, the main difference is quality. Expensive safes are made using higher-quality materials and will have better fire safety ratings. They give you peace of mind as you can trust that they’ll work and keep your items protected. In effect, you get what you pay for!

About Jacksonville, FL

Jacksonville is the most populous city in Florida, with over 900,000 people estimated to live here. It’s a city that’s had a history of large fires, with plenty of wildfires affecting the region – and the whole of Florida – as of late.

This is the largest city in the continental United States, and there’s plenty around for residents and tourists to enjoy. Jacksonville is always sunny, but it doesn’t get as hot as other parts of Florida. As a result, the summers aren’t unbearable, but the winters are nice and mild. It’s a surprisingly affordable city to live in, which is probably why it’s become so populous as of late! Located along the Floridian coastline, Jacksonville is seen as one of the leading distribution centers in the US. Large freighters often dock here before setting off all over the country. 


Alongside all of this, Jacksonville is also known for its range of beautiful urban areas.
