What is the Best Type of Safe for Documents?

Car titles, birth certificates, passports, social security cards. There are a lot of important documents in our lives that need more protection than a bedroom dresser or kitchen drawer can provide. That is why a document safe is a logical and economical solution. There are several things to consider before purchasing a document safe.

First is the safe’s level of protection from fires. Depending on whether you are looking to store traditional paper documents or multimedia items, you will need a safe that keeps the internal temperature below 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Second is whether the safe is water resistant. It is important to know whether the safe comes equipped with high-quality door seals because your important documents can be destroyed within minutes during a flood. Third is the safe’s level of security. Having items like your social security card or your taxes stolen can having long-lasting effects. A document safe should have a high-quality dial and electronic lock that is U.L. rated.
