Fire protection cabinet: Protects important documents and reduces the fire load
Fires can cause significant damage to your facility. Most damage is compensated for by insurance. While these are annoying and mean expense, the negative consequences are limited. You clean up the damage and use the insurance money to purchase new business equipment . However, if important documents such as customer data or technical records are lost, it can be an irreplaceable loss. A fire protection cabinet can reduce the risk of a total loss. This consists of fire resistant materials and surface coatings. Depending on the fire resistance rating, a fire safe can withstand a 30 or 90 minute blaze. The chance that the contents will not fall victim to the flames is greater than if you store your files and documents in a standard cabinet.
However, the most important aspect of a fire safe cabinet is to reduce the fire load in a room. A cabinet full of paper can accelerate a room fire to full spread. When this fire load is minimized by a fire safe cabinet, firefighters and rescue workers are given more time to fight the fire. For precise data on the fire resistance of filing and document cabinets, please refer to the individual product pages.
