Our most recent installation was a Fire Safe by AMSEC (American Security) for a customer who has cash and jewelry in his residence. The customer is a Jeweler and often works at home, and pays for precious metals and gems with cash. Needless to say, the safe had to be burglary rated, as well as fire. We selected a safe that met those requirements and that was also in the price range we agreed upon. In this case, we wanted a model around $400.00 dollars. This safe also met my customers other requirement that it have an electronic lock. The location for the safe is a small area, so I chose an upright model to take up less space, but provide good storage area for all the items to be protected. We went with the ES149 model, the spec's are listed below:
(ELECTRONIC)ES914 / ES149 / ES1814Features:
350°F 1-Hr U.L. listed fire rating.
State-of-the-art DL4000 Electronic Lock.
Combinations are fast and easy. Emergency key-lock override system with two (2) keys, bright blue LCD display with a low-battery indicator and a power override battery box. Side boltwork mechanism incorporating two 1/2" steel deadbolts prevents door removal if hinges are removed during a forced entry attempt. (ES1814 model: 1" x 4-1/2" rectangular steel deadbolts). One (1) drawer shelf. Impressive 1/2” thick door with attractive two-toned sage finish. (ES1814 model: 5/8" thickness). Four (4) rubber feet. (ES1814 model has four rolling casters).
This safe is a great deal and the customer was very happy. Installation for this type of safe takes about an hour, and is not impactful on the construction of your home or business. The electronic lock is easy to use and has many features to keep the owner from being locked out which saves hassle and service calls!
