When you are thinking of buying a gun safe you want to keep your firearms safe from intruders because you don’t want them to fall in the wrong hands and that is what most gun safes can successfully do. But, if you want to protect your firearm collection from something more then you have to look for fireproof gun safes because those safes are made with high-quality materials that can guarantee you one of the safest storages for firearms.
Having a fireproof gun safe will keep your firearms secured for a certain amount of time at certain temperatures. I can’t tell you the exact period or temperature because it depends on the fire resistant gun safe you are interested in. But, you can expect a period from about 30 minutes to almost 2 hours or more, and the temperature is somewhere around 1200°F, it could be higher and it could be lower.
There are different sizes of fireproof gun safes so you can choose them by your firearm collection. That means you can find a fireproof gun safe for one or two handguns and you can find them for a bigger number of rifles and handguns. Bigger safes are more common fireproof gun safes, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a small fireproof gun safe, actually I have few smaller models among best fire rated gun safes right in this article.
Fireproof gun safes are often more expensive than regular gun safes but that is not a surprise because they are designed to withstand high temperatures caused by a fire in someone’s home. So, you can’t compare a regular gun safe with a fire resistant gun safe because a fire resistant gun safe is more durable, stronger and it will survive the fire.
