A fireproof safe can also be a lifesaver when it comes to protecting your most valued possessions and important papers. Bank safe deposit boxes may seem like a reliable and secure option when storing valuables. Cameras, security guards, and tons of steel can make this seem like a viable option but exactly how secure and convenient are safe deposit boxes?
Did you know that items stored in bank safe deposit boxes aren’t insured by the FDIC? As stated in their consumer news, “Plus, cash that’s not in a deposit account isn’t protected by FDIC insurance.” So this means that any cash you have stored in the safe deposit box that’s not deposited into an account is uninsured as is any other valuables or paperwork.
Items like passports, wills, and extra keys are not only uninsured but also inaccessible during certain hours. For these reasons, a fireproof safe is an excellent option when it comes to storing your valuables. The following items are just a few to be considered when storing items in your safe:
Cash!!! It’s still king, and always good to have some on tap for emergency situations. Valuable jewelry and/or coins. While cash can be deposited into a banking account to gain interest, it’s also inaccessible during possible hours of need.
Legal documents! Important documents like living wills and powers of attorney. In an emergency, access to documents like these can spare stress and anxiety saving much needed time when seconds count.
Health care proxies and contact information. Who knows where this information disappears to when there’s an emergency.
Pharmaceutical contact information, a list of family doctors, and prescribed medication used on a regular basis.
Speaking of wills, if you are designated the executor in a will and it’s stored in a bank safe deposit box, the box it typically sealed when the box’s owner passes.
Other documents like original social security cards, original birth certificates, and passports should also be kept in a fireproof safe for retrieval in times of need.
Important documents related to retirement and bank accounts, outstanding debts and creditor information are also a great idea to keep in a fireproof safe.
Titles to your vehicles and extra keys are also helpful to have handle in an emergency.
Insurance policies for your property and your agents contact information. If you have to file a claim at an odd hour, you will need easy access to these documents.
Family photos saved to external hard drives or CDs are not only valuable; they’re irreplaceable. When storing magnetic media like hards drives, be sure the safe you choose will protect your data. In these cases, you may need to opt for a fireproof data/media safe that provides a higher level of protection from fire.
Lastly, in addition to storing your valuable items in a fireproof safe, you should also consider placing paper items like cash, birth certificates, etc. in a waterproof ziplock bag then placing that inside a fireproof bag. This will give an added measure of protection from fire or the fireman’s water hose should them have to extinguish a fire in the area of your safe.
The safe. These timeless machines are some of the toughest around. How do 21st century safes keep thieves out and even protect your valuable from a raging house fire?
More than 500 super strong parts work together. The outer shell is a sandwich of ultra-tough steel and slabs of ground up rock fireproofed to 1,200 degrees. 26 hardened steel bolts clamp the door deep into the sidewalls and a lock with 1.2 million possible combinations gives easy access if you know the code.
The secret to what makes the safe so strong is the way engineers make its steel skin.
In this 300,000 square foot Utah factory that these Liberty safes begin life as 9 ton rolls of coiled up steel. It’s 5 times thicker than the steel used on car body work, and incredibly tough. Workers must wrestle this super strong steel into a precision formed box. It’s a mighty engineering challenge.

When the goal of owning a firearm is protection, the speed at which you access it becomes just as important as storing it safely when it’s not in use. Gun safes provide an added layer of protection with gun ownership that protects family members and prevents theft. Biometric gun safe locks are the latest technological advances among safe manufacturers offering quick secure access to firearms or valuables.
When we think of home or office safes, the iconic large-dial combination lock types of safes is what may come to mind first, but the days of the cannonball safe are gone. Since we sit on the cutting edge of technology, the evolutionary path of safe technology is also seeing great benefits from today’s technology pool. Some of the biggest advancements in safe technology have come from the improvements made with locking mechanisms as safe manufacturers now offer biometric locking mechanisms as an option when purchasing a safe.
Biometric Gun Safe Anatomy
The term biometric refers to an automated user-identification method using physical traits. These physical identification traits include fingerprints, the iris, face, veins in the hand, signatures, thermograms, and voiceprints. Biometrics are more secure than traditional methods because they are more difficult to steal. Even before the days of CSI, detectives dusted crime scenes for fingerprints left behind as a means of identification.
As you know, everyone has a unique fingerprint, but with so many unique combinations for fingerprints, how do biometric gun safe locks work? Within each fingerprint are unique identifiers called minutiae points or the major features of a fingerprint. The biometric lock has a template stored in it’s database that matches these points onto their template and assigns a code to your print. Since this technology pulls from a digital database, it’s possible to store more than one fingerprint, and some have the capacity to hold up to 100 unique fingerprints. It’s a good idea to store more than just one of your own fingerprints and/or maybe more than one person’s print. If something happened to you, who else besides a locksmith would be able to open the safe?
The Good, The Bad, and The Biometric
The good news with biometric locks is no more lost or forgotten passwords. Another advantage of biometric mechanisms is the compact size needed for the touchpad and the low cost to produced them, making them optimal for small or large devices. The scanning surface for fingerprint biometrics is just over one half inch. The other obvious advantage of biometric lock is speed. With just one swipe of your finger it’s possible to gain access to a safe’s contents. Many people may have no need to quickly access their jewelry or important documents, but when it comes to home security, begin able to quickly retrieve a firearm could mean a great deal.
The disadvantages of biometric gun safes are minimal but definitely worth mentioning, one of which is smearing. If the identifying finger gets sweaty or wet, this will negatively impact the device’s ability to correctly match the fingerprint pattern denying access to an excited user.
About one third of American households own a firearm, keep yourself and your family safe with the responsible storage, and quick access provided by a biometric gun safe.
