Do you need to organize and store your important documents? The SentrySafe HD4100CG offers you enough interior space exactly for that. This safe accommodates hanging folders so it’s a good choice for those who don’t want to dig through a pile whenever they need to pull out a document. You will also appreciate the in-lid organizer, which holds electronic media like CD and DVD discs.
The cabinet is large enough to hold many documents and other valuables that need to be protected from fire and water. The seal is tight and prevents water from getting in. The HD4100 safe is ETL verified for water as well as fire resistance. In addition it is UL classified for fire protection (30 minutes of resistance to 1550°F). The safe comes with a one-year warranty and is guaranteed for after-fire replacement.
With 42 lbs. it is relatively heavy, so best to pick the place for it beforehand. Do not plan on moving it often unless you are strong enough to grab it and go. Carrying it actually not so easy because there are no handles to hold on to.
You can put hanging folders inside and keep your important documents in there. Each folder holds a good amount of documents (about 200 pages or so) but only the 8,5 x 11″ size paper. It has two elastic bands to put on the inside top part to put your passport or wallet.
The design is minimalist and will match most of the home designs. However, it is recommended to keep Sentry Safe HD4100CG out of sight anyway, so burglars do not even attempt to open it, because they are simply not aware of a safe in your house.
If you do not plan to open the cabinet very often, you might want to consider buying an accessory such as dehumidifier to prevent high humidity. Because that could lead to mold and damage your documents.
