We like the AMSEC CSC1913 for it’s small footprint, good burglar protection and 2 hour fire rating. This safe is five inches taller than its little brother the CSC1413 which allows more secure storage space and an additional adjustable shelf. We also like the bolt detent that automatically locks the door when the safe is shut.
We particularly like this safe for applications with high fire risk in addition to concern about burglary. The 2 hour fire label is a confidence builder. In a factory test the interior of this safe stayed below 350°F for 2 hours when heated to a temperature of a 1700°F. A typical house fire burns at 1200°F.
The CSC1913 carries the Residential Security (RSC) label from Underwriter’s Laboratories confirming this safe was not breached in an attack simulating a typical home burglary.
We stock this safe with the ESL10XL digital lock for ease of use, and can order it with a mechanical lock if preferred. The ESL10XL lock is powered by two 9-volt batteries located in the keypad on the outside of the safe. Batteries typically last at least a year and are easily replaced. We recommend Duracell or Energizer batteries dated at least 5 years into the future to ensure enough power to operate the lock. Multiple incorrect code entries will put the lock into lock-out mode for 15 minutes, protecting the safe from a prospective repeat entry attack.
The CSC1913 safe comes prepared with a bolt down hole in the bottom and we strongly recommend it is put to good use, especially on safes weighting less than 450 lbs. The last thing you want is to put all your most precious possessions into the safe only to have the whole safe carried away by a burglar.
