Fire Resistant Safe Ratings and Products

Determining the best safe to meet your storage needs
There are several distinct differences between a fire resistant safe for paper and a fire safe for computer media or data backup tapes. This primarily revolves around the fire safe rating, either a UL 350 or UL 125.

The UL 350 fire rating means that the interior of the safe (during a fire) will not rise above 350 degrees F for the designated time frame (e.g. 1-Hour, 2-hour, etc). This type of fire protection is meant to protect paper documents. Paper chars and begins to burn at 451 degrees F (remember the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury?).

A fire safe with the rating UL 125 means that the interior temperature of the safe will not rise above 125 degrees F for the designated time frame (e.g. 1-Hour, 2-Hour, 3-Hour). This means that computer media such as DLT or LTO tapes, DVD's and backup CD's will be protected in a fire. This type of media safe will also protect your paper documents.

Once you have determined what you will be storing, then you can easily decide which fire safe rating you need to have. We carry both the FireKing safe and Schwab Corp. safe product lines to meet the storage needs of our clients. By having the best choice in the business we can better meet our client's goals for document and data storage.

Why did KL Security choose Dahle, and why should you?

The team at KL Security is dedicated to offering only the best of the best when it comes to our line of products. That is why we chose Dahle USA when we decided to add a line of paper shredders to our offering of office and home solutions.

Dahle paper shredders have set themselves apart from the majority of their competition by adhearing to very stringent design and construction requirements. Built to meet the needs of individuals as well as the Federal Government and their destruction of Classified Materials, Dahle has a solution for any need.

When choosing a document shredder, there are a few factors that should come into play. Here is a brief list to consider when narrowing your choice.

- Strip-cut or Cross-cut: While Strip-cut shredders are generally ok for personal use, Cross-cut shredders are preferred, and required in most corporate and governmental applications.

- Security Level: Are you destroying documents that are deemed internally sensitive? What about documents that are deemed Classified by the Federal Government? Or are you simply destroying that unwanted sale ad? No matter the need, we have the correct security level to meet your needs!

- Sheet Capacity: The Security Level you choose will have a lot to say about how many sheets you can process at a time. The higher the security, the smaller the shred size, the less sheets can be sent on a single pass. If you security needs are not as important as the number of sheets per pass, lower the security level and get up to 100 sheets per pass!


For additional information visit our FAQ page! Or call us Toll Free 866-867-0306.

Refurbished containers meet expectations!

Demand for Class 5 and Class 6 containers is currently at an all-time high. With this increased demand comes longer lead times, often resulting in unavoidable delays. Government sub-contracts require items such as Classified documents, weapons, ammunition, arms room keys, and the like to be stored in GSA Approved Security Containers before work can begin.

Current lead times for new GSA Storage Containers typically runs between 45-75 days. Failure to plan ahead in order to accommodate these longer lead times has resulted in numerous contracts being revoked by DoD inspectors.

Thankfully, there are solutions available on short notice. Refurbished containers that have been re certified to meet up to date GSA and DoD standards are generally in stock and ready for shipment. These GSA Approved re-certified containers are equipped with the new X-09 locks, which meet the current FF-L-2740 standard, include new handles and moving hardware or bolt work and have a powder coated finish that is more scratch and damage resistant (unlike new containers which are wet painted).

If you find yourself in a pinch, and need a GSA Safe, cabinet or container in a hurry, give us a call! We will be glad to help.
