Fire rated home safe options to consider
Either come in, or look through some Fire rated safe options


Our three main suppliers, CMI, Chubb and Yale all offer good levels of protection

With a minimum of 30 minutes fire rating and adequate burglary protection they have slightly different specs and cash ratings.

The cash rating is the value for which you will get insurance cover for.
