Fire rated cabinets and safes have been certified according to a particular standard, and are measured through tests carried out by independent testing authorities. The longer the period in minutes, the greater the fire resistance offered. For example, the critical temperature before paper or records combust is 177 °C. Whereas, data media is damaged at temperatures over 52 °C. Traditionally, Fire Rated Cabinets and Safes come in 30 minute to 120 minute fire rating certifications.
