The First Alert 2702DF 2-hour fire rated safe offers a high level of anti-theft security as well as extended fire protection. This model also features an automatic re-lock system, 1 removable/adjustable shelf, and a lockable pull-out storage drawer. Dry fill guarantee: the safe is guaranteed not to develop mildew from moisture originating in the safe's insulating material for five years. All First Alert fire safes are covered by a 5 year manufacturer's warranty and will be replaced free of charge if damaged in a fire.Protection from Fire:
According to the National Fire Prevention Association, most residential fires last less than 30 minutes with fires lasting longer than 1 hour being rare. Fire duration is affected by the amount of fuel available to the fire and the length of time required for the fire department to respond to a fire call. The 2702DF fire safe has been awarded a JIS (Japanese Industrial Standards) 2-hour fire rating verifying that it will withstand an external temperature of 1700 degrees Fahrenheit while maintaining an internal temperature of less than 350 degrees Fahrenheit. The 2702DF is therefore a good choice for a residence or office with above average fuel sources and or located longer distances from the fire department.Protection from Thieves:
The First Alert 2702DF fire safe's anti-theft features include steel construction, heavy duty steel hinges, and 6 solid steel locking bolts: 4 live and 2 dead. The fire safe's electronic keypad lock allows users to program a personal 3 to 8 digit pass code. The digital lock is designed to be used in conjunction with the entry key. The entry key can be left in the keyhole using only the digital lock to secure the door, or it can be removed for an extra level of security. Two entry keys included. Also included is an emergency override key which can be used to bypass the digital pass code and open the safe in case of battery failure (4 AA batteries included).
