What are your hours of operation?

What good is a product that is only rated for one hour? Fires last longer than that.

Fires rarely burn for more than 10 – 20 minutes in one location. As it passes through the building, the fire's intensity changes as flammable items are consumed.  

What good is a product that is rated Class 350 or Class 125? Fires get much hotter than 350°F or 125°F.

Files are tested to external temperatures of 1,700°F.  Class 125° and 350°F are internal temperatures for computer media tapes and paper documents.  

What kind of finish do you find on FireKing Cabinets?

All FireKing cabinets are finished with an electrostatic powder coating. The powder is applied to all sides including the bottom panel. Powder coating is more durable than paint and scratch-resistant, providing a quality appearance. Eleven standard colors are available on most models.

What percentage of consumers believe standard filing cabinets are fireproof.

59%. Our research shows fifty-nine percent of consumers believe standard filing equipment will provide protection for their vital documents. Furthermore, 30 percent do not believe fireproof files will provide adequate protection. 20 percent are completely unaware of the need to protect records or the availability of fireproof file cabinets and data safes.

Why are FireKing files impact tested?

Heat isn’t the only hazard during a fire. Ceilings fall and floors collapse. If a file cabinet is not rated for impact, it could split open and fail in this situation. For FireKing cabinets to carry the 7/17/02 11:21 AM Page 11 Composite UL 1-Hour fire and impact rating, a fully loaded file cabinet is heated at 1550º F. for 1/2 hour, dropped 30 feet onto a bed of rubble, inverted and placed back in the 1550º oven for another 1/2 hour. The contents must survive this test for the cabinet to earn the rating.

Why are the Medeco locks considered high security?

FireKing’s proprietary Medeco locks are considered high security because of three features: key control, pick resistance, and physical strength. 

Why do I need a special file? My everyday files are metal - they won't burn.

Standard Metal Files offer no protection from fire. They will actually directly conduct the fire's heat inside, where your records will ignite and burn.

Why do I need a special product for computer media? Don't fire files and safes protect everything from fire?

FireKing files are rated to protect both documents and electronic media to include CD, DVD, hard drives and thumb drives. To protect records kept on tape you need a data safe which carries the UL Class 125° rating. 

Why do I need special products to protect computer media?

Computer media is considerably more susceptible to heat and moisture damage than paper records, and therefore must have a considerably greater degree of protection. FireKing Data Safes and MediaVaults are designed to provide superior protection against not just heat and humidity, but also dust and magnetic interference. They offer complete protection for your company's computer media.

Why should I buy records protection products? After all, I'm insured.

Fire insurance is available, but many fire sufferers found out the hard way that insurance will only pay on losses that can be documented. If your records are lost, you must still be able to document to the insurance company exactly what was lost and what it was worth before they will pay. Fire sufferers have also found out that some items can never be totally reconstructed, even if insurance pays. Vendor/client files, contracts, personnel files, engineering blueprints, accounts receivable and payable - can you and your staff remember or recreate all the information for all these categories? Personal records such as wills, passports, wedding/divorce papers, birth certificates, baby pictures, household goods inventory, tax records, and personal treasures (such as art masterpieces by your child) should all be protected at home.

Why should I purchase records protection products? Won’t my insurance cover my records?

The proper business insurance will cover your records. The catch is, you must document all your losses. If your documents are destroyed, that will be extremely difficult. In addition, there are business records and even personal items that are literally irreplaceable. No amount of insurance can compensate for their loss.
