This safe or cabinet is designed to offer Fire resistance to protect paper documents, but has no formal test certification. The 30 minutes fire resistance is provided by usually inserting fire resistant material between the inner and outer body of the safe or cabinet.

Is this chest suitable for storing server back up tapes? How many would fit?

Unfortunately this fire chest is designed and tested to protect digital media and paper documents only. Although it is not tested for tapes, which are affected by heat at lower temperatures than either digital or paper media, it will offer some protection. Both Sentry and First Alert did offer such a chest, but they are no longer available in the UK. The only tested option for you is a Data Safe such as those found here - http://www.safeoptions.co.uk/fire-safes/fire-safes-tape-data
