The most important thing to note is that since paper burns at 218–246 °C, it is crucial to buy a safe that wouldn’t burn when surrounded by fire at this temperature. This is why safes are rated with fire ratings, which basically tell you how long the safe would last until it starts burning and probably even destroying the contents inside.
But Always Remember
A safe has to be of good quality anyhow. Some fire safes look sturdy because they are big, but they offer a weak lock with small bolts. The lock can be easily drilled or lock picked. The bolts are not resistant enough to intrusion. The sheets of steel that form the carcass are too thin and can be easily cut.
That is why, we only recommend buying a good safe that is fireproof, and not just any fireproof safe. If you hesitate, first check the weight of the safe. If it is too light, there is a problem with the thickness of the steel and its bolts size. If you ever found your safe cracked open or stolen, you might understand that the primary risk is theft, long before fire or floods. So choose a good overall safe that also has fire resisting capabilities.
