Lexan Polycarbonate is used to manufacture the Hide Away Safe. Lexan is a General Electric trademarked Impact Modified Polycarbonate known world-wide for its great strength and extremely high impact resistance.
Lexan is incredibly Light-Weight but as Tough as Steel and Virtually Indestructible.
A resilient memory material which makes the Hide Away Safe prise-proof, assuming that a thief finds it in the first place.
The Hide Away Safe range of High Security safes are manufactured by Hide Away Safe Co, the Australian manufacturer, using their own special formulae of Lexan Polycarbonate.
For people who use the Hide Away Safe as it was originally designed in 1993 as a Day Safe. Meaning you have installed the Hide Away Safe somewhere easy and quick to get to but still hidden from sight in your home (many places) so when you come home you place your wallet, watch, jewellery etc in the Hide Away Safe then slide it back into its Docking Station and lock it.
We know for a fact taking less than 30 seconds to secure your valuables in a Safe you will use the Hide Away Safe on a daily basis instead of leaving valuables on top of your bedside cupboard, on the kitchen bench top or similar.
For the individual purchaser the above is the reason to purchase the Hide Away Safe, we also want you to know why the Military and to a lesser extent Police and Security companies based their decision to buy the Hide Away Safe.
Most people know if you leave a CD or DVD on the dash board inside your Car in the sun even at 28 degrees Celsius it will be above 40 degrees in the Car and within about 30 minutes the CD or DVD will be reined.
As we have said Lexan is Light-Weight but as Tough as Steel and Virtually Indestructible. If you are not impressed with those benefits I am sure this will, the added bonus of Lexan is, it is heat resistant. Once you close the lid of the Hide Away Safe it does not transfer heat to the inside of the Safe no matter how hot it gets on the outside.
Heat destroys Computer Data no matter what it is stored on:
If you want to keep your backed up Computer Data in a Vehicle in a secure location (not in a bag on the back seat covered by a towel or blanket) the Hide Away Safe is the only Safe in the World that will protect your Data not only from being stolen but also from heat.
Lexan Polycarbonate is so strong it is used in High Security applications to manufacture products such as:
The Hide Away Safe was designed as a High Security, Light-Weight, anti-theft device. The selection of the material was primarily with consideration for impact resistance and overall strength, we were not concerned about fire.
98% of people do not live in fire prone areas. In Australia regarding theft versus fire it is in the order of 820 occasions to one. That means there is 1 fire claim (that could be just a minor kitchen stove fire) to every 820 claims of theft. You now know why fire IS NOT a major concern to insurance companies unless you are in the 2% of people who live in a fire prone area.
All other countries have a similar insurance claim ratios.
A question we are asked occasionally:
Is the Hide Away Safe fire proof.
To answer that question in 1995 we conducted a monitored heat test on a Metal Safe and the Hide Away Safe. We wanted to compare the condition of an identical piece of paper in each Safe after being placed inside a kiln for 15 minutes at 400c.
This Is What We Did
A piece of paper was torn in half and one half was placed inside a Metal Safe and the other half was placed inside a Hide Away Safe. Then both safes were placed in a kiln that had been pre-heated to 400c and left in the kiln for 15 minutes.
The End Result Being
After 15 minutes both safes were taken out of the kiln. The internal temperature of the Metal Safe reached 250c and the piece of paper inside was starting to char (paper will start to ignite around 250c) compared with the Hide Away Safe internal temperature was only 150c and the piece of paper inside was unaffected.
This Experiment Showed
Physical condition of both safes:
Physical condition of the piece of paper inside both safes:
The protection of the contents inside a Safe is the most crucial factor of Safe ownership.
The price to replace the Hide Away Safe is a small investment after the trauma of a fire.
People tend to die in house fires when they spend time removing valuables and keepsakes thinking the fire is not all that serious. It is the smoke that generally kills not the flames.
