Why Do You Need Fireproof Storage Cabinets?
While many important documents have been transitioned to digital versions, keeping paper copies is still common. This is especially true of employee and state records, healthcare facilities, as well as tax information. In addition, original documents often come as printed copies, which tend to be required in verification processes.
If your filing cabinets aren’t at least fire resistant, these documents are at risk. Businesses might not realize how common fires are and how costly they can be. According to the US Fire Administration, in 2011 over 85,000 fires led to over $2 billion in damages for businesses.
Fireproof safes and filing cabinets can protect your vital documents and files to help minimize your risk of loss. Companies can store cash, bonds, and valuables to keep them on hand without risking their loss in a fire.
Fireproof File Cabinets to Suit Your Needs
To choose the right fireproof filing cabinets, consider your business’ needs with regard to style, capacity, and fire rating.
Select a Cabinet Style
Fireproof file cabinets come in a number of styles, and are typically made of metal. Color options can vary, but often include black, neutral, and gray tones. File cabinets can also offer different file orientations. Lateral file cabinets organize files as books would be organized on a shelf (these are most often used in healthcare), whereas vertical file cabinets keep folders in a horizontal orientation, so the drawers are deeper.
Choose a Desired Fire Rating
When purchasing a fireproof filing cabinet for your Virginia, Maryland or DC office, it’s essential to consider your desired fire rating. A fire rating indicates the highest temperature the cabinet can withstand and for how long.
For instance, Fireking fireproof file cabinets offer a UL 1-Hour Class 350 Fire Rating that can withstand temperatures of 1700 degrees for up to an hour. With this fire rating, your internal cabinets would reach a temperature of 350 degrees. These ratings vary from piece to piece. In addition to fireproofing, some file cabinets are also waterproof so your documents remain protected when the fire is extinguished.
