Question: What is the difference between fireproof and fire resistant safe?

In general within the industry, “fireproof” is used to describe the more heavy-duty safes which provide a great deal of fire protection. “Fire resistant” is more typically applied to products which provide a basic level of protection.

What is a fire resistant safe?

Fireproof safes are engineered and designed to protect paper and keep the internal temperature of the safe below 350 degrees, which is the critical temperature where the paper will start to char and burn. Their method of protection is to create steam (moisture) inside the safe.

Can fireproof things catch on fire?

The term fireproof is actually a misnomer, because almost anything containing carbon, if hot enough, can combust and catch fire. When used properly, these fire protective measures can interrupt the burning process.
