AMSEC UL2018 UL Two Hour Fire & Impact Safe
U.L. Fire Resistive Rating Classification
The following is an explanation of the Underwriter's
Laboratories' fire resistant container testing procedures on the Class
350F, one hour and Class 350F two hour Fire Labels.
U.L. Label/Class 350F-one hour and Class 350F-two hour.
The safe will maintain an interior temperature less than 350F when
exposed to fire for a period of one hour at 1700F or for a period of two
hours at 1850F. Safe must successfully undergo all other requirements
for the Fire Endurance Test, Explosion Hazard Test and the Fire/Impact
Test as stated below.
Fire Endurance Test
After heat sensors and paper are placed inside the safe,
the unit is locked and exposed to a uniformly distributed fire. The
furnace is regulated to reach a maximum temperature of 1700F for a
period of one hour, or 1850F for two hours, then allowed to cool without
opening the furnace. The interior temperature is recorded throughout
the test and during the cooling period until a definite drop is shown
and must never exceed 350F. Once cooled, the unit is opened and examined
for usability. The units locking mechanisms and parts fastenings are
examined for security and the interior examined for visible evidence of
undue heat transmission
Explosion Hazard Test
The safe is locked and placed into a furnace preheated
to 2000F. This temperature is maintained for 30 minutes (2 hour test is
45 minutes) and if no explosion results, the unit is allowed to cool
without opening the furnace doors. Once cooled, the unit is opened and
examined for usability. The units locking mechanisms and parts
fastenings are examined for security and the interior examined for
visible evidence of undue heat transmission.
Fire Impact Test (Manufacturer's Option)
After the explosion hazard test the safe is removed from the furnace
and within two minutes is dropped 30' onto a riprap of brick on a heavy
concrete base. After impact the unit is examined for deformation,
rupture of parts, damaged insulation and any other openings into the
interior of the unit. Once cooled, the unit is inverted and reheated to
1550F for a period of 30 min. (2 hour test: 45 min. at 1638F). Once
cooled, the unit is opened and examined for usability. The units locking
mechanisms and parts fastenings are examined for security and the
interior examined for visible evidence of undue heat transmission.
