AMSEC BFS912: Compact Security, Maximum Protection

The AMSEC BFS912 burglary and fire safe delivers an unparalleled level of security for its size, bringing peace of mind to those who prioritize the safety of their valuables. Engineered with precision and care, it stands as a bulwark against the threats of theft and fire, embodying the quality and reliability synonymous with the American Security brand.

Exceptional Fire and Burglary Protection

At the heart of AMSEC BFS912’s design is its robust protection against fire, with ETL verification ensuring the safe withstands temperatures of 1775°F for a remarkable 80 minutes. This level of fire resistance safeguards critical documents, digital media, and other sensitive items from extreme conditions, preserving them for recovery and use after a fire incident.

Complementing its fire protection capabilities, AMSEC BFS912 boasts a UL Residential Security Container (RSC) Burglary classification, a testament to its ability to deter and withstand forced entry attempts. This classification is supported by the safe’s 1-3/4” double-wall steel construction, featuring a 3/16” steel barrier and a unique fire-resistant barrier that adds an extra layer of security against both physical attacks and high temperatures.

Innovative Security Features

AMSEC BFS912 is equipped with a bounce-resistant E-Lock featuring an illuminated keypad, enhancing user access in low-light conditions while maintaining strict security measures. The inclusion of a U.L. Type 1 High Security electronic lock (E5LP) further underscores the safe’s commitment to security, offering a sophisticated mechanism that is resistant to tampering and unauthorized access.

Massive hardplate and two relock devices act as formidable deterrents against drilling and other invasive breach attempts, ensuring the safe’s contents remain secure. Additionally, the locking mechanism is reinforced with three 3/8” x 1” steel locking bolts and three 3/8” x 1” steel deadbolts, providing a triple-layered defense system that secures the door firmly in place against forced entry attempts.

Advanced Locking Mechanism: Security Meets Innovation

The heart of AMSEC BFS912’s security features lies in its advanced electronic locking system, the E5LP. This U.L. Type 1 High Security electronic lock is engineered for reliability and ease of use, featuring an illuminated keypad that ensures accessibility even in low-light conditions. The lock’s design incorporates a 15-minute penalty lockout after several incorrect attempts, deterring unauthorized access through guessing combinations.

This sophisticated locking mechanism is further bolstered by a massive hardplate designed to resist drilling, and two relock devices that activate to secure the safe’s contents even if the lock is compromised. The combination of these features signifies a robust defense strategy against various forms of safe-cracking techniques.

Unyielding Construction and Fire Resistance

The BFS912’s double-wall steel construction, measuring 1-3/4” in thickness, offers a formidable barrier against physical attacks. This construction is complemented by a 3/16” steel barrier and a unique fire-resistant material that together provide a dual layer of protection against both burglary attempts and fire exposure.

The safe’s ETL Verified fire protection rating of 1775° F for 80 minutes places it among the elite in fire-resistant security solutions. This certification assures that the contents of the safe—be it important documents, digital media, or personal valuables—remain protected even in the extreme conditions of a fire, offering unparalleled peace of mind to the user.

Practical Design and Aesthetic Appeal

Despite its compact dimensions, the BFS912 does not compromise on style or functionality. The safe’s sleek black body and contrasting gray door offer a modern aesthetic that fits well in any room or office setting. Moreover, the safe includes two anchor holes with provided hardware, allowing for a secure installation to the floor or wall, which adds an additional layer of theft prevention by ensuring the safe cannot be easily removed or relocated.

The interior space, though optimized for compactness, provides ample room for a variety of items, from jewelry and documents to small electronics, ensuring they are both secure and organized. The interior’s dimensions are thoughtfully designed to maximize storage efficiency without occupying excessive space in its environment.

Its UL Residential Security Container (RSC) burglary classification and ETL verified 80-minute fire protection rating ensure that valuables stored within are safeguarded against the most common threats.
