The USA made HS series is one of the most advanced fire and burglary resistant safes in American Security’s lineup. In fact, this is one of the only safes out there that is U.L. Listed TL-30. If you are truly serious about keeping your items safe and secure even in the worst of conditions, consider the HS series.
American Security takes fire protection very seriously and has incorporated several innovative design features that help protect your safes contents even in intense situations like house fires. The HS series provides a generous 2hr fire protection rating at 1850°F by the use of high-density fire resistant composite material that is incased by a solid sheet of steel on both sides. They have also decided to incorporate the popular Palusol heat-expanding seal that will help protect your valuables from smoke and heat damage. When expose to heat, the seal starts to swell and grow to be up to 7 times it’s size creating a seal on all four sides of your safe.
HS series name stands for “High Security” and I really do find that to describe these safes pretty accurately. These safes have a ridiculous 6-inch thick door that contains two sheets of 11-gauge steel as well as a layer of high-density composite material to keep even the most persistent burglar from access your safe. The walls are 3” thick and include a high-density composite material encased in two sheets of steel. The door securely locks to the body through the use of 10 – 1.5” diameter high strength steel bolts that are included on all four sides of your safes door. If you’d like a little more strength, jump up to the HS – RFX series, which has a 3 ½” thick walls with an interlocking inner steel barrier on the sides of your safe. Both models have drill resistant doorframes, proprietary patented hard plate, and an external and internal relocker. You’ll find that the HS series is one of the most secure safes from American Security just under the BF Series.
