Sentry®Safe Launches First-Ever Fire-Resistant Storage Box

- Provides Storage Capacity for Critical Business Archives -

ROCHESTER, N.Y., -- SentrySafe, the world leader in residential and small office security-storage containers, today announced the Guardian(TM) Storage Box is available now at your local independent office products dealers and at Staples, Office Max and Office Depot in January 2012. The first-ever fire-resistant storage box, the Guardian is the only long-term storage container that is proven to protect your important business documents from fire, water and other environmental damage.

"In today's economy, it's more important than ever for businesses to protect their valuable data and be cost-efficient," said Jim Brush, SentrySafe president and CEO. "In addition to being the first of its kind, the Guardian Storage Box provides tremendous value for the safe storage of your critical business archives. In fact, two Guardian Storage Boxes are 65 percent less expensive than a standard two-drawer fire file while providing the same storage capacity."

Two Guardian Storage Boxes are 80 percent lighter than a standard two-drawer fire file due to lightweight, innovative insulation technology. Listed at $159.99, the Guardian Storage Box holds both letter and legal-sized documents; has basic fire protection which is ETL Verified for 20 minutes fire protection at 1200 degrees F /649 degrees C; and ETL Verified spray resistant for protection from water. Latches secure the lid in place to keep valuables safe from environmental damage, and units are stackable up to three units high to provide a convenient storage solution when space is limited. When stacked, the Guardian Storage Box still guards against fire and water damage.
