If you are reading this, you've probably realized that most safes you've seen, really aren't that safe.
Nearly every type of safe you see on the market is either a B-Rate or RSC, meaning it is rated for break-in attempts that last up to 5 minutes. In the grand scheme of things, this really isn't a lot of time and a determined burglar would be able to access the safe, if they know what they're doing. If you're looking for a safe that is so tough, the insurance companies will back it up for $100,000 - $150,000, you've come to the right place.
This AMSEC CE2518 is approved as a TL-15 and the technical definition of a TL-15 safe is as follows: "Signifies a combination-locked safe designed to offer a limited degree of protection against attack by common mechanical and electrical hand tools and any combination of these means. Has successfully resisted entry* for a net working time of 15 minutes when attacked with common hand tools, picking tools, mechanical or portable electric tools, grinding points, carbide drills and pressure applying devices or mechanisms." Basically they take every tool a smart burglar would use and punish the safe for 15 minutes. If the safe survives, it is rated TL-15 and Qualifies for Mercantile & Broadform Insurance Class ER with a Bank Rating of BR. So I'm sure you're wondering, how do they accomplish this?
Let's start with the massive 6" door, constructed of a 3" defense barrier of outer and inner steel plates creating a single structure encasing a unique, high density fire and burglary resistant composite material. This defense barrier on the AMSEC CE2518 houses a proprietary amalgamation of nuggets and steel fibers to withstand concentrated attacks with the most sophisticated equipment used by burglars. On the door of the AMSEC CE2518 lies a U.L. listed Group II Key Changeable combination lock. The hinges offer a vertical height adjustment and utilizes an oil impregnated bearing ensuring easy door operation.
The locking mechanism on the AMSEC CE2518 is equipped with six massive 1-1/2" diameter chrome plated solid steel locking bolts that move deep into the body's protected bolt chambers. The body is formed to combine a total protective thickness of 3-1/2" enclosing a high density fire resistant composite material with nuggets and steel fibers. The reinforced drill resistant door frame protects the door and each individual bolt chamber from severe side attacks. The proprietary inner barrier protects against peeling attacks.
This AMSEC CE2518 TL-15 safe has been tested for up to two hours of fire protection at 1850° and successfully maintained an interior temperature of less than 350° for the entire duration of the test.
The AMSEC CE2518 comes standard with one high strength adjustable shelf included, a tri-spoke handle and a pull handle that makes opening the heavy door a breeze.
