Kaso safe in an extreme building fire

At Kaso we often open safes damaged in building fires around the world. Recently we opened a Kaso safe that had suffered in the forest fires in Greece. The house was burnt down to the stone wall. Opening is always a thrilling and emotional event – we cannot guarantee the state of the contents, if the conditions have exceeded what the safe is designed to withstand. 

This particular safe model was tested to withstand a heat of over 1000 degrees for one hour, but according to the owner, the safe had been at least four to five hours in temperatures above 700 degrees. 

This time the result made everyone and especially the owner very happy: our customer was delighted with the good condition of stationery and keepsakes.
