When it comes to your own safety, and security, there are a number of reasons many households are choosing to keep a gun for protection. Properly storing your gun in a proper safe cannot only add more safety for your loved ones but can also provide a secure place to keep other valuables. A gun safe can be a highly ideal way to keep your guns and valuables secure, but choosing one can take a lot of thought and consideration, especially with many makes and models in the market. There are specific ratings and tests done to ensure that the gun safe you chose to keep in your home will do the job you need it to and can be crucial for gaining additional coverage from insurance companies.
What You Need To Know About Gun Safe Security Tests:
In the United States the only safety ratings that most insurance companies will accept are ones given by the Underwriters Laboratories' or UL. When looking to buy a gun safe it should display a UL rating, ones that do not should be avoided. There are a number of UL tests that are done and ratings are giving out accordingly to the tests performed.
UL Tests Include:
RSC- The Residential Security Container is typically the lowest rating test done by the UL. For the safe to pass this rating it must come with a resistant force door, meaning it cannot be pried open with a screwdriver, crowbar or other objects. It must remain resistance to the pry test for at least five minutes of this outside force. It should be noted that the way the test is performed does not require this resistance to be a continuous five minutes. The individuals, who are trained and experienced at breaking into safes, can start and stop the resistance applied to the safe to review and recalculate where to try and open it. These safes DO NOT require a locking system.
When it comes to keeping your guns secure and safe, as well as your other possessions and valuables, you want to be sure to find the highest quality. One of the easiest ways to know if the safe you chose is reliable from the safety ratings it has been given.
