Are your school's documents protected from disaster?

Fireproof filing cabinets are tested to withstand extreme heat, and options that can protect your files from 1700-degree flames for up to a full hour are not uncommon. In addition to protection from fire damage, most fireproof files can withstand damage caused by a 30-foot drop, which may come in handy in the event of a serious fire. Finally, you know those sprinkler systems will be going off at the first sign of a blaze. Fireproof filing cabinets are built to keep the unit tight ans secure, meaning your important documents won't fall victim to water damage caused by those sprinkler systems or firefighters hosing down the area.
