DuoGuard has been approved in accordance with the European standard, EN 1047-1 in fire class S 60 P, which means the safe will protect paper documents for one hour. This certification was awarded by ECB•S (European Certification Board•Security Systems). To comply with this standard, DuoGuard has been exposed to a constantly heated environment of over 1,000°C, during which temperature is measured and relative air humidity checked.
STAGE 1 Fire Testing: The safe is placed in a furnace and heated to a constant temperature of almost 1,000°C for 60 minutes to simulate the effects of a severe fire. Its internal temperature is measured during the heat and must never exceed 170°C, which is the temperature at which paper starts to suffer damage.
STAGE 2 Fire Testing: The safe is removed from the furnace and cooled. The internal temperature continues to be measured during the subsequent cooling down period. When opened, it must not exceed 150°C.
DuoGuard has been approved by ECB•S in accordance with the European EN 1143-1 standard for burglary protection in Grades 0 and I. A range of attack tools were used to test DuoGuard’s level of resistance, ranging from basic tools to sophisticated thermal and electrical equipment.
