AMSEC BF1716: The Pinnacle of Protection and Peace of Mind

In an era where the security of your valuables and the integrity of your important documents can never be taken for granted, the AMSEC BF1716 stands as a fortress against the unforeseen. This safe is the embodiment of what it means to combine cutting-edge technology with the unwavering reliability of traditional security measures. With its dual-certified resistance against fire and burglary, the BF1716 offers unparalleled protection for both residential and commercial settings.

Engineered for Endurance and Security

The AMSEC BF1716 boasts a robust “B-Rated” heavy-duty construction, ensuring that it can withstand aggressive attempts at unauthorized access. The 1/2″ solid steel plate door is a formidable barrier, further reinforced by the safe’s unique proprietary fire and burglary-resistant material. This design not only meets but exceeds the UL certification for Residential Security Container (RSC) burglary protection, making it a trusted shield against intruders.

But the BF1716’s defense capabilities don’t stop at burglary protection. It also comes with an ETL certified 60-minute fire protection, tested at temperatures up to 1700°F. This level of resilience ensures that your documents, digital media, and other valuables are safe from the ravages of fire. The dual seal design, featuring a silicone foam seal and a heat-expanding intumescent seal, offers an added layer of defense against smoke and water damage.

Sophistication in Security

Beyond its formidable protective features, the AMSEC BF1716 is a model of sophistication. The door, at 3½” thick, incorporates not only the half-inch plate steel but also a proprietary material that offers resistance to both fire and forced entry. The safe’s body, with a thickness of 2-5/8″, encloses this same unique material between 1/8″ outer and inner steel plates, creating a sanctuary for your valuables.

Security is further augmented by three massive 1″ diameter solid steel chrome-plated locking bolts and a full-length dead bar that locks deep into the body of the safe, preventing door removal during a forced entry attempt. A UL-listed Group II lock with a spring-loaded auxiliary relock device stands ready to thwart any lock tampering attempts, ensuring that the contents of your safe remain inaccessible to unauthorized individuals.

Customization and Aesthetic Appeal

The AMSEC BF1716 is not just about unparalleled protection; it’s also about blending seamlessly with your personal or business space. Available in durable and attractive granite finish or sandstone textured finish, it offers aesthetic flexibility to match any interior décor. The large chrome-plated dial and matching handle, complemented by a plush velour interior, add a touch of elegance to the robust security that the BF1716 provides.

With an external height of 22.25 inches, a width of 21.75 inches, and a depth of 21.75 inches, the BF1716 is designed to accommodate a variety of storage needs without imposing on your space. Its weight of 412 pounds underscores the safe’s solid construction and the serious protection it offers.

Advanced Security Features of the AMSEC BF1716

The AMSEC BF1716 stands as a testament to American Security’s leadership in the safe manufacturing industry, setting a benchmark for both fireproof and burglary safes. This section delves into the advanced security features, lock options, and adaptability of the BF1716 to meet the specific needs of its users, further solidifying its position as a top-tier choice for safeguarding valuables.

Locking Mechanisms Tailored for Ultimate Protection

Flexibility in security is a cornerstone of the AMSEC BF1716, offering a variety of lock options to suit every preference and requirement. From mechanical locks with key-locking spy-proof dials to the latest in electronic safe locks like the ESL5 and ESL10, the BF1716 ensures that access to the safe’s contents is both secure and convenient. Each lock option is designed to integrate seamlessly with the safe’s robust security features, providing an additional layer of protection against unauthorized access.

The inclusion of a U.L. listed Group II lock with a spring-loaded auxiliary relock device highlights the safe’s commitment to security. This feature acts as a fail-safe, automatically engaging to secure the safe’s contents if the lock is tampered with or subjected to severe impact. Such attention to detail in the locking mechanisms underscores the BF1716’s role as a guardian of your valuables.

Designed for Versatility and Customization

Understanding that the protection requirements and aesthetic preferences vary from one user to another, the AMSEC BF1716 offers extensive customization options. Whether it’s a choice between a durable granite finish or a sandstone textured finish, or custom options such as two-tone, discontinued colors, or color matching to specific specifications, the BF1716 can be personalized to fit the unique style and security needs of any setting. This adaptability makes the BF1716 not just a safe, but a personalized security solution that reflects the user’s taste and requirements.

The BF1716’s design also considers practicality, with a recessed anchor bolt hole and mounting hardware included to securely anchor the safe in place. This feature ensures that the safe remains immovable, adding an extra layer of security by preventing the entire unit from being physically removed or relocated by unauthorized persons.

A Legacy of Trust and Assurance

Owning an AMSEC BF1716 comes with the assurance of support and reliability that is synonymous with the American Security brand. The safe’s lifetime fire replacement guarantee, coupled with a one-year parts and labor warranty, offers unparalleled peace of mind. This commitment to customer satisfaction is reflective of American Security’s confidence in its products and its dedication to providing security solutions of the highest caliber.

Proudly made in the USA, the BF1716 not only supports American craftsmanship but also ensures that users are investing in a product that meets the strictest standards of quality and reliability. This emphasis on domestic manufacturing contributes to a legacy of excellence and innovation in the security industry.
