When choosing the right gun safe for you, it’s important to consider all aspects of security. Not only should your safe be able to protect your guns from burglars or curious parties, but they should also be able to protect your possessions in case of a fire. For this reason, Liberty Safes are made to withstand high heat for long periods of time. However, choosing the best Liberty fireproof safes can still be a difficult decision. Thankfully, there are a few pointers that will get you going in the right direction. Here’s what you need to know.
Are Liberty Safes Fireproof?
Liberty safes are constructed from high-quality steel and are assembled with the use of fireboard, giving every Liberty safe a fire rating. However, not all Liberty fireproof safes are created equal. There are a few things you should know before buying a fireproof safe that will help you make your decision.
First of all, no safe is truly “fireproof”. Rather, they are fire-resistant. To be truly fireproof it would need to be fully resistant to extreme heat forever. No safe can make this claim. Nothing can withstand high heat forever. So you need to understand that your Liberty safe will be fire-resistant, and depending on what you’re planning to store, you’ll need to get the appropriate fire rating.
A fire rating will let you know how hot a safe can burn and for how long before the possessions inside of it become damaged. However, depending on what you’re storing, your belongings may be more susceptible to heat. Electronics can be damaged from heat way before guns or jewelry.
What are the benefits of a fireproof safe?
Despite not being truly fireproof, Liberty safes are an incredible investment that will offer protection against flames for an extended period of time. The benefits of a fireproof safe mean you won’t have to worry about your hidden possessions during a house fire. This means you can focus on what matters the most; the safety of you and your family.
Benefits of fireproof safes include peace of mind, protection for your valuables, and even lower insurance rates in some cases. Take time to think through your needs, and then you can choose the best Liberty fireproof safe according to those needs.
What Is The Best Fireproof Liberty Safe?
Maybe this seems like a cop-out, but there is no “one best Liberty safe”. Rather, the best Liberty fireproof safe is the one that most closely suits your needs! For example, the Fat Boy Extreme is a massive safe with a fire rating of 75 minutes, capable of storing 64 long guns. However, you may not need a safe that big, making it awkward and uncomfortable to have in your home.
The Centurion 12 is a much smaller (and more affordable) safe with a fire rating of 30 minutes and a storage capacity of 12 long guns. This safe much more easily can fit in your closet making it a great option for those living in apartments or smaller homes.
