Will provide adequate fire protection. Questionable security!
on 12 January 2011
I purchased this safe to store important documents and computer media. I wanted something to secure these items and was attracted by the added fire protection offered by this safe (30 mins guaranteed protection) from intense fire.
When the safe arrived, I was very happy with the size - it allows for A4 documents to fit inside no problems. The depth is also pretty good so you can store a good amount of stuff inside. It seems to be a common problem with this safe (if you use Google you can find other examples) that there is a strong smell of mould inside. Upon inspection I couldn't find any mould but the smell is quite bad and transfers onto anything that you place in the safe. I'm going to try some disinfectant and see if that resolves things.
In terms of the security protection of this safe - I'm not convinced it'd deter a determined thief. The lock mechanism is very basic and is the sort you'd find on a cash box. This was somewhat disappointing but it'll do for my needs. If you're after something secure, I'd look elsewhere.
