Fire Water Resistant Safes
Fire and Water resistant safes are good for either commercial or residential use. Besides protection from burglary, they also offer significant protection from fire and water damages. Some fire & water resistant safes can provide twice more fire resistance than ordinary home safes. As a rule, such units come for sale with really thick walls and door. Fireproof water-resistant safe has airtight construction. It helps prevent water from getting inside in case of fire when a fireman’s hose or sprinklers are used. Depending on size, exterior design and included features, the price for the safe varies from a couple of hundreds to a few thousands.
Safes with such characteristics vary in size. It means that a future safe owner can buy a safe with the dimensions they need.

Are fire and water resistant safes waterproof?
Water resistant is absolutely different from waterproof. Waterproof means that the water will never get inside the safe even being immersed into water fully. Fire and water resistant safes are not waterproof but they can protect content from some amount of water (fire sprinklers, for example) for a limited period of time.
Fire and water resistant safes should also provide a high level of protection from burglars. It is possible only in case a safe is built from strong steel and equipped with a sophisticated locking mechanism. The best fire and water resistant and anti theft home safe is the one that comes with a lock from dedicated brands such as S&G Electronic or DialLock and several locking bolts for more security.
