Fires Prove Time and Again…No Match for AMSEC Fire Safes

Monday, September 16th, 2013

When the only thing left standing after a rampaging fire is your fire safe with precious valuables inside, unaffected by the disaster, that’s the moment of confirmation when you think: “Yes. This is exactly why I invested in a high quality safe.”

Don Koester, owner of Four Lakes Chelan Winery in Chelan, WA, had the same thought when his wine-bottling warehouse went up in flames in May 2013. Koester’s AMSEC safe with fire protection held his extensive and irreplaceable coin and stamp collection, among other valuables.

After the fire, Koester saw his safe, but remained afraid…would the safe’s assured fire protection really hold up to its promise? “I was devastated at my losses and it took this long to get my courage up,” he said.

When he finally did muster the courage to open the safe door, Koester was amazed: “lo and behold, nothing was damaged other than some smoke.”

Pray for the best, prepare for the worst, right?

Many times people think that the primary reason to get a safe is to protect their valuables against burglaries, but the home fire statistics may surprise you. In 2011, U.S. fire departments responded to 370,000 home structure fires, according to the National Fire Protection Association, which is proof why a safe’s fire rating is so important. (more…)

New ExecuVault Gun Safes

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

ExecuVault Gun SafeWe are thrilled with American Security Products (AMSEC) newly configured 2-hour fire rated gun safe, the ExecuVault. This safe is perfect for the customer who has just a few rifles but also needs a secure place to store a variety of other valuables. The ExecuVault is actually a multi-purpose safe. It is a gun safe, jewelry safe, fire safe and burglar safe all rolled into one. The body is the AMSEC CSC4520 with serious burglar protection plus two hours of fire protection. The interior offers nicely padded shelving with slots for up to 6 rifles, 3 standard shelves for any number of other valuables and a Stor-It Pack door organizer with zipper pockets and elastic straps to make the most of your interior space. This safe also includes an electric dehumidifier included as a standard accessory. This safe is a great new entry into the gun safes market.

At Maximum Security Safes we have this new gun safe in stock on our showroom floor ready for you to come and check out. If you are not in the Southern California area explore the ExecuVault on our website.
The ExecuVault is dark gray with matte finish and chrome hardware. These gun safes have double steel walls and doors for secure protection. Fire protection is provided by the composite material that fills the steel frame avoiding air pockets that are prevalent with sheet rock style fire protection.

These gun safes come standard with U.L.Listed High Security Group II combination locks including chrome-plated spy-proof dials. Optional high security electronic locks are also available. The locks are protected by tempered glass relock devices and heavy duty steel hinges provide easy, smooth door operation. This glass relocking device is typically found on safes with much higher security ratings.

The ExecuVault is a two hour fire safe that has been tested in a furnace with temperature of 1,700 degrees. After the two hour test period the internal temperature remains below 350 degrees, well below 450 degrees, the temperature that paper burns. The safe is large enough internally that a second smaller fire safe can be placed to provide the best protection for your computer storage media.

The representatives from AMSEC advised us recently that the ExecuVault gun safes will have the UL Residential Security Container rating from Underwriters Laboratory in the near term without change to the design of the safe.

One of the primary differences and advantages of the ExecuVault gun safes is that they are shorter than the typical gun safe. With the standard casters this safe stands 54” tall; with the casters removed the safe is 50-1/2” tall. It can be bolted to the floor to provide additional burglar protection.

Maximum Security is a full service company that provides service, delivery and installation of any type safe, including the ExecuVault gun safes. We have been in business for nearly 30 years and the current owners have been in the same Santa Ana, CA store location for 15 years. We have hundreds of satisfied customers who have purchased safes and used our safe moving and delivery service locally in Southern California and across the country.
