Sentry Safe 10.4Ltr Waterproof Fire Safe Chest Medium 394 x 394 x 198mm
Perfect for documents
This was bought to protect documents such as deeds, from fire. It is just the right size for the job. It will also hold a small portable computer hard drive to keep backed up data safe. Due to its portable nature, I would not use it to keep valuables or cash in though.

Good for documents
I purchased this to protect my house documents in case of a fire.
It has good storage capacity. I was easily able to fit in a number of A4 documents and still have space for more.
The lock relies on a piece of plastic which wouldn't offer any resistance to a crowbar or large screwdriver, so it's no going to offer much protection against theft but then you can't expect much from a small portable unit as it can be easily picked up and removed anyway.
It is quite heavy and does feel well made.
As for its performance; I hope I never find out.

Just the job
This fire safe is sturdy with thick sides, bottom and top and looks as though it will do the required job, that is, to protect our house deeds, wills and other important documents in the event of fire or flood. All the A4 and foolscap docs fitted in without folding. There is no handle and it is quite heavy, but I had no problem picking it up and putting it in its storage place. The catch is very strong and positive. There is a lock, but it is only a "privacy" lock and not intended to keep out determined thieves.

Fire safe (not tested in fire)
Much smaller inside than the external dimensions but adequate to protect a few documents (like house insurance details) in a fire. Just about holds A4 size documents in an envelope.
