Can you not bolt it down to something somehow?!?!

Saying that, the locking mechanism looks a bit flimsy, so am I to take it that these are not designed to ONLY protect from water / fire.... (I now think that is probably what you were getting at).

You are right, and this does NOT have a metal skin. It has a plastic inner and outer skin with a fire retardant material between the two

You could put it inside a safe... ;)

Saw this at the weekend and meant to go back for it later in the day (as its not exactly lightweight, didn't fancy lugging it around town). A non-removable bolt down etc safe would be better, but as a protective box it seemed like a bargain.

The only plus on the theft side is I suppose that the theif has to choose to spend time breaking into it - as they are unlikely to run off very fast carrying this. Perhaps someone fancies buying one and testing its theft-deterrent status? :D

(Actually, given it's weight, that postage is a bargain, I may just buy it now and save myself some effort!)

Let's be realistic about this:

These things are designed not for security but are for precious papers so that if there is a fire, the contents will survive both the blaze and the water from the sprinklers/hose. That's why they're fire and water proof.

They are only (unlike more expensive safes) fireproof for 30 mins.

So: think about it, allowing time for your house/office to be on fire, someone to call the fire brigade, them to arrive (they do a good job, so I'll assume they'd be there in minutes, I'm not knocking them), them to then contain the fire and put it out.... only 30 mins? Really?

I think it sounds cool but is not going to be of much use in a real fire scenario due to very limited resistance. Just my opinion.

I understand your comment - but it is resistant to the highest temperature for 30minutes, so it could protect for much longer.

I guess it depends how bad the fire is, what risk you want to take, and how much you want to spend 'insuring' that.

I bought one by the way :-)

The clasp on this doesn’t look as if it would last long after a few sharp whacks with a hammer but as you say it’s not supposed too

Looks like an excellent price but consider the Sentry boxes as well. They are deservedly the market leader.

Bought a proper fireproof safe from ebuyer in the January sale for £40, it weighs a ton and would take 2 people to nick it (I had to help the delivery driver with it). this is probably a better option as the only things I'd want to save in the event of a fire would be photos and family things which are irreplaceable.
#16
Can I just point out that this is not heatproof? So if you put magnetic media in it; usb keys or something, they'll probably be blank when you pull them out after a fire.

And while I think of it, did anybody read "Fahrenheit 451" by Ray Bradbury - so named becuase paper spontaneously combusts at 451 degrees Fahrenheit? So, if you put it half way to it's limit of 1,500 degrees, anything inside would still be well singed (after the oxygen in the safe was used up, the fire would go out).

6% quidco too!

I'd have to say that I too would not expect the 30 minutes thing to be a problem.

Even in a bad house fire (and lets bear in mind the odds of that if you are a reasonably careful person) you wouldn't be looking at the box being in the middle of a raging inferno for a solid 30 minutes. There's a limit to how long the combustable material in your house that is also within reasonable contact to the box, is going to maintain a fire.

Just looked at the sentry ones - and most of their range carry a standard 30 minute fire-proof too, so it must be sufficient.

I did however find one comment online where someone queried how tough these cheaper end boxes would be if they were, for example, upstairs in a house and the floor burnt through. A case that breaks open under that kind of drop would become useless. A case of using the right product for you, and then using it in a sensible way I think.

On a side note - while I've been searching for this stuff, I came across http://www.keepyousafe.com

Sounds like a good idea in a lot of ways (assuming you beleive them in that they Can't access the info). Anybody know anything more about this site? It seems like a good solution to the document storing problem for all us web-savvy people...?

Good point :thumbsup:

Actually, maybe it's also waterproof so that you can store it in your aquarium to keep the max temperature down during the fire.

American Express offer a service a bit like that, too - an annual fee of £20, though.

Hot.

Not a single sensible negative point made. Limitations accepted.

Picked up one of these yesterday at Woolis; £12.50 at Woolies Enfield. Fire safety wise looks ok and very heavy, however build quality not on par with Fire Sentry boxes which I also have ; as mentioned previously lock clasp is plastic so would not provide much protection but as a fire proof/waterproof box to keep documents in (as long as you hide it somewhere) and bearing in mind it costs £12.50 cannot complain too much.

Still available...
