I was looking for a fire safe for documents but didn't want to pay a fortune. This one seems to fit the bill for the price I paid. Of course I haven't tested it as it does get ruined if it is exposed to fire - the lid melts closed. It is extremely heavy and difficult to move around as it doesn't have handles. - I wouldn't be bothering to try and save it if I was running out of the house from a fire. It locks with a key and a spare is supplied. It would have been nice to have an extra 2 keys as I would like to leave keys with other relatives and obtaining extra keys is a palaver as you have to have your ID verified. Also, the instructions tell you to register it in order to have a free replacement if it is spoiled in a fire but after endless going round in circles it seems this is no longer necessary. Overall it is fine for the purpose we purchased it and we are very pleased with it for what it cost us.

Great. We have no Rolex or tiara to save from prying eyes. This safe is for important documents. These include birth and marriage certificates, passports, house and fire insurance, all the things you need and would be lost without if your house burns. Where would you find the deeds to your house, which you will need to produce or mortgage certificate? What happens if one of you passes away? The other needs to find out not only where you have bank accounts but with which bank or building society. We also include our will here. Then there are old documents from our family heritage, birth, marriage and death certificates and a few ultra precious old photos. Our present society needs proof of everything about you before it will sanction anything. This safe holds our lives safe. Thank you

My bank no longer provides a safe-deposit service so I needed fire-proof water-proof storage for deeds, wills etc.

This is proof against fire for at least one hour, which is twice the length of time offered by most other makes. It is slightly more expensive than some - I'm happy to pay extra for the extra security. It is quite heavy but I find it perfectly manageable (I'm female and in my 70's). It comes with 2 keys - I would have liked a third to leave with a relative. The key is an unusual make so I will have to make a journey to the nearest city to get one cut. This is my only (very minor) quibble.

The safe is strongly built and of a reasonable size and weight. This makes it easy enough to find a space for it within the home which is out of sight but accessible to its owner. The key gave me some issues when opening the safe for the first few times but this seems to have settled down with use. My only real surprise is the warning that came with the safe about not storing valuables inside it which might be affected by water or damp in the event of a fire due to the internal construction of the safe. But this can be circumvented by using a "sea-to-sky" type waterproof bag to place such items in before storing them in the safe.

This safe is a very efficient storage solution for home and family usage. It is a good size overall to manage a safe storage solution and easy to locate within the home. The exterior dimensions seem somewhat large versus the internal storage space, I suppose this has something to do with the Fire & Waterproofing qualities that the safe provides. The construction is extremely robust and all components appear to give the safe a quality of build that is very good value for money. The ease of usage is a real bonus, no batteries to run out and no security codes to remember - a simple key does it all!

The fire chest was selected for the sole purpose of securing personal items - which are always going to be a nuisance to replace if lost or stolen; worst still if there is a fire. It is capable of storing A4 documents flat - Certificates and the like. The only negative is that it is awkward and heavy to be lifting too high, so really needs to be low down. I'm surprised that no consideration was given to having a handle or two incorporated within the design.

That said I am likely to be purchasing another one as it has sparked a debate within the family for a need to keep documents safe!

This is the prefect size for what I needed. Seems very well built. Confident my valuable and important items are well protected in the event of a fire. It’s nice and heavy as well so wouldn’t be easy to carry out the house. Would definitely recommend to anybody looking for a fire safe.

Will hopefully never have to find out how effective this product is!

The weight, though heavy, is manageable and it seems of sturdy build, with adequate space inside for your vital documents. There is no way to secure it to the floor, so it should be seen as a ‘fire chest’ rather than a ‘safe’ to prevent theft. I keep mine at the base of a wardrobe, discreetly out of site.

My one concern ( and this really is important) is that the lock and the opening catch mechanism, ‘feels’ less ‘robust’ than it ought to, with the catch occasionally ‘sticking’ before opening. This needs addressing by the manufacturer in my opinion.

A Great safe. We bought it to keep important documents safe from fire or flood and it would appear to be just what we needed.

Needs a handle though!

This box has a nice chunky feel to it and seems to seal well when closed.

It now holds our passports, birth certificates and USB backups for our computers etc in an upstairs cupboard. Hopefully it will make the difference between them surviving a small domestic fire and being destroyed in one should the need arise.

Glad I bought it.

Much smaller than a safe and more portable, can be stored more conveniently around the house. We have managed to fit all important documents etc into it but that has now filled it. The lid is not the easiest to release with quite a small catch. The lid is very heavy and easy to accidentally drop as again the catch is small so not much to hold as you open it. You do need to slam it shut for the catch to engage something to be mindful of and check if you do purchase one of these, which I would still recommend. We haven't had a fire, flood or break in just yet so very hard to comment on it's effectiveness.

After a lot of research, we ordered this item as it appeared to be the best product available to meet our needs. It is easy to use, of good quality and has more than adequate storage capacity. The lock provides a good level of security. A good value for money fire and waterproof chest.

Hopefully the chest will never be tested but from its construction I'm confidant it will protect the contents if the worst happens. It's big enough for a portable backup disk and a reasonable amount of documents (as I have used it for) but a bigger size might be needed for more substantial items. For more security a chest permanently attached to a wall/floor would be better but would be significantly more expensive and be less flexible in its location.

The chest is solid and well made and while it has not been tested (and I hope it won't be), I'm sure that it will protect as it should. Storage space is fine for A4 size documents, but wouldn't take anything bigger. The unit is quite heavy so is not something you're going to move about a lot. All in all happy with the purchase and I would recommend it to others.

The proof of the pudding is how well it responds in a fire which hopefully never happens! It is well made, robust and capacious and is accurately described. It takes A4 papers. It is quite heavy. Overall it is exactly as described and good value and delivered in a timely fashion.

I am looking for a Waterproof Fire Chest that is not easily "picked" but that can actually withstand burglars as well. I like this one but is it secure?
Anonymous
Fire Chests are designed to protect documents and sometimes digital media from fire and water damage. Although they have a lock, they are not deemed particularly secure. Additionally a potential thief could easily carry a fire chest away.

Ideally you should consider one of our Waterproof Safes. These include fire and water protection, a much more secure lock and include the option to be bolted to the floor.

Does silica gel need to be used to prevent condensation/mould in this item?
Phil, Bury st Edmunds
If the safe is opened regularly you shouldn't experience any issues, however the manufacturer recommends a desiccant pack/silica gel to prevent any possible moisture build up from the fire insulation material.

Will the chest be effectively sealed without locking it or is it only effective if the keys are used?
Anonymous
The chest will click closed and will be fully sealed but will not lock unless the key is turned. However we recommend the lock is used as if the chest tips over in a flood/ fire or drops from a height the mechanism may spring open.
