Fire is an unpredictable hazard that can destroy almost anything in its path. A fire cabinet can protect valuable items from both heat and flame.
Fire safety is an important thing to keep in mind as you are setting up and maintaining an office but even with excellent fire safety, accidents can happen. If they do, it is prudent to keep a fire resistant container like a fire cabinet to put important data and documents in. That way, if a small fire or a raging inferno is set in your office, you can rest assured that the important documents will be safe inside.
Any business or home that has important documents can use a fire resistant container. However, this article will discuss several places that can particularly benefit from a quality fire safe, including:
- School offices that keep student records and paperwork.
- Any home office with important document or digital media.
- The professional offices of private practice doctors or lawyers.
- Any business that keeps records or tax forms.
School Administrative Offices
There is often a lot of paperwork that goes into running a school including student records. Even if a school is making an effort to be paperless by moving all important data to a digital format, backup hard drives and disks need to be kept safe as well. A large fire resistant cabinet like Phoenix FS1514K Fire Ranger would be able to hold a large amount of records or hard drives. It would also keep them safe from theft as well as fire.
A Home Office
When you work from home you may have plenty of papers and files to keep track of, especially if you run your own business. A security cabinet can be a very useful to organise and protect your important documents and media. Unless you have an unusual amount of documents and data to take care of, a small cabinet like the Phoenix FireFox SS1621E will work well.
A law office is a prime example of a place that keeps a lot of paperwork that absolutely needs to be kept safe. Case files and legal records need to be kept safe from both fire and theft. For that reason, a security safe with a good security rating is as important as one with high fire resistance. The Chubbsafes Duplex Secure Fire Resistant Cupboard is a large container that can withstand heat and flame for 2 hours and it can also withstand physical attacks and tampering.
Doctor’s and Dental Offices
Like law offices, a doctor’s office has to keep plenty of paper and digital records. A fire cabinet can keep patient records and other important data safe from theft and damage.
Business that Keep Records
There are many other businesses that are responsible for keeping records and paperwork safe. Most workplaces have some form of physical or digital documentation that is essential to daily business. A quality fire safe or cabinet is a smart investment for many types of offices.
