Safari Safes, like all other home security safes, are not fireproof.
They are fire resistant to varying degrees. Each Safari Safe is tested
in a very sophisticated, environmentally controlled furnace. This
furnace superheats the air surrounding the safe to the correct test
temperature, and heat sensors placed in the bottom, middle and top of
the safe monitor the increase in interior temperature over time.
At Safari, we run three tests, a 1200-degree F. test for 30 minutes, a
1200-degree F. test for 60 minutes and a 1200-degree F. test for 90
minutes. The inside temperature of our safes must not exceed 350 degrees
F. in this time. We use two independent test facilities, including Intertek (E.T.L.), which are capable of raising the temperature in
approximately eight minutes to the desired point and sustaining it for
the rest of the test period. Many factors could affect fire intensity in
an actual home fire. These include the safe’s location, the type of
building, nearby fuel sources, wind, humidity, and many others. With
these factors in mind, we believe our testing is the most fair and
unbiased test available to determine fire resistance.
