On the inside of the door, a sticker is attached (certificate) of an approved institute, only this can prove the necessary security to the user. The buyer should only consider these plaques.
The test is done by means of the unit temperature-time curve (ETK) with a maximum at 1080 ° C over 60 (S 60) or 120 (S 120) minutes; including heating and cooling phase. The stay in the furnace takes several hours. A drop test is included in the test - the hot safe is dropped from a height of 9.15 m into a gravel bed.
There are different classifications:
FIRE PROTECTION ACCORDING TO EN 1047-1
The safes are tested using a special process of the official Civil Engineering Materials (MPA) in Braunschweig to check the fireproof characteristics. A special fire testing room is used in which the safes are subjected to a fire test in combination with a fall test. Many known testing institutes, such as VdS, ECB-S etc., use this fire protection test EN 1047-1 from the MPA in Braunschweig and certify their products such as the gun cabinets or safes.
The "Braunschweig Test" is divided into two parts and always uses two identical cabinets.
In Part 1, the safe, or gun cabinet must pass a fire resistance test. The temperature increases in this period to the maximum. A sensor inside the cabinet measures the temperature and in order to pass the test, the inner temperature is not to exceed the maximum allowed.
In Part 2, a thermic shock and impact test must be passed. The safe or gun cabinet is heated to 1090 ° C within 30 minutes. Thereafter, within 4 minutes, a fall test from a height of 9.15 meters on a gravel or gravel bed. After the fall test, the safe or gun cabinet is again heated to 840 ° C for 30 minutes. Subsequently, the cabinet remains in the fire room until a clear cooling has taken place.

Which lock is the best?
The following 4 lock options are available. The following overview of the different lock types gives general information. Also, of course, feel free to contact us for further information.
There are four options for the type of lock:
• The double-bitted key lock - is the easiest way to secure the fireproof safe - you cannot forget the security code! Two keys are supplied with the lock - please note that the keys must be stored in such a way that they are protected against unauthorized access. Because of the key-keeping clause or the high risk of theft of the key, insurance companies recommend the mechanical combination or electronic lock.
• The mechanical combination lock works without power supply and without battery. Any change of the secret numbers can be made at any time (only the code owner can make the code change possible!). The safe owner does not need a key and has no risk of loss.
• The electronic lock: this is the most attractive option. The electronic lock is a comfortable way to secure the weapon cabinet or safe. It should be noted here that the lock works with batteries and these changing occasionally. If the battery fails, the lock can be supplied with power from the outside. The secret number combination can be changed as often as you like.
• Fingerprint (biometrical): ensures the fast opening only with finger pressure. No more forgetting of codes or number combinations. Even the misplacing or losing keys is no longer an issue. Up to 60 different fingers can be stored.
Tip: weigh the pros and cons of the 4 different locks for yourself
What do you want to keep in it?
In a fireproof safe you can store smaller and larger items. What size is useful and necessary, should be carefully considered:
Private: There are smaller fireproof safes for smaller, important valuables such as jewellery, passports or cash. Inside appropriately certified cabinets also data carriers such as DVD's and USB sticks can be stored.
Larger fireproof safes can be used for A4 files and documents, but they can also be used as weapon cabinets.
Commercial: Companies can store folders and documents (such as business license, service contracts, etc ...).
If you want to use the cabinet for folders, you should first consider how much folder space should be - there are different sized models - the space ranges from small cabinet for 5 folders to the cabinet with space for about 20 folders - depending on Requirement. Since the vault is in use for a long time, it should not be forgotten that the number of folders will become more and less over time!
Tip: Consider the purpose: for what things and how much stuff you want to give in the safe.
Once you have decided on a fireproof safe, the question arises, where do I install it?
It is very important to find the right location for your safe. The site should not be visible to everyone, the fewer people know where your safe is, the safer your valuables are.
For your fireproof safe, fireproof document cabinet, fireproof security box, and fireproof data cabinet, it's especially important to find a location that is not exposed to direct sunlight, as the fire protection insulation of the vault will respond to a temperature increase. In addition, you should not place your safe in rooms with high humidity.
An ideal location for your safe is an office or bedroom since burglars suspect that location for valuables and search first. By doing so, you will avoid the devastation your entire home as the burglar will focus on the vault.
Also, pay attention to the load-bearing capacity of your ceiling. The weight of the safe should not exceed this in any case.
