AMSEC is now offering additional security peace of mind with our new BF HD series gun safes. These safes are built to the same high quality standards as our current BF Series gun safes. All BF HD Series safes include a 4 gauge inner liner for added security protection.
AMSEC’s BF Gun Safes use a proprietary fill material called DryLight, which offers exceptional fire protection without adding excess weight. This superior fire protection was confirmed at Intertek, the industry’s leading independent laboratory for gun safe fire testing. When analyzing the fire performance of competitive safes, be sure to weigh reports from independent laboratories against unverified factory testing.
During fire testing, Intertek kept our BF Gun Safes in their test oven for two hours. Within 8 minutes, the furnace temperature was raised to 1200° F, and that temperature was maintained for the remainder of the two-hour test. This method is consistent with the UL-72 fire test curve. Typical house fires only reach temperatures of 1100° F. A safe is considered to have failed this test if temperatures exceed 350°F anywhere in the safe. Our safe passed the test as internal temperatures never exceeded 325° F during the two hours of testing. Paper typically starts to ignite at 450° F.
