Standardized Testing From Independent Laboratories
AMSEC is one of the first manufacturers in the gun safe industry to use standardized test procedures from independent laboratories to substantiate our burglary and fire ratings. Standardized independent testing provides consistent test procedures that can be used across the industry so consumers can meaningfully compare ratings between different safes when making a purchasing decision.
In the United States, the most recognized testing organization for burglary resistance of safes is Underwriters Laboratories (UL). UL publishes standards and administers tests to check if products meet those standards. Standards include specific tools that are used during a break-in attempt and a specific time limit for the test. There are several different burglary classifications that establish specific levels of attack resistance. The most common listing in the gun safe industry is Residential Security Container (RSC).
The ETL logo on our fire-rating labels indicates that our ratings have been verified by independent testing at Intertek Laboratories. Intertek is a multinational independent inspection, product testing and certification organization with over 38,000 employees in over 100 countries. To test our products, Intertek places our safes in a furnace with 8 gas burners. The test furnaces reach 1200°F in 8 minutes. That temperature is maintained for the duration of the test. Five separate thermocouples monitor the temperature inside the safe. To pass Intertek’s test, the internal temperature inside a safe must remain below 350°F. Paper burns at approximately 450°F.
