Hall's Safes from Auburn claims 140F for an hour in a 1800F fire mainly, I think, because they are solid steel plate, no holes for electric cords etc. I like this because it means I can keep eletronics in there too, like backup disks. This is the only safe I have seen to make this claim. Does anyone know of others?

Nope, but I have seen one of their safes thats been through a fire. Outside was UGLY. Inside was fine. I understand the house burned down around it.

Some day I want to upgrade to a big ol Halls safe.

Halls makes good stuff. I've seen their shop and know somebody with one. They construction technique is interesting in that the there's an inner shell thats separated from the outter shell by insulation material on five of the six sides. Many fire safes are just a regular save with insulation material (wall board essentially) stuck up on the inside. The Hall safe is just a better insulated house with fewer points where heat can be conducted into the inside. If I'm ever luck enough to need to upgrade it will be a Hall's safe.

Yeah, they make good stuff.

They can also make custom-sized safes (corner safes, etc.)

Another co, Brown Safe Co. also makes nice high-end safes.
