GB20L SentrySafe - 20 minutes fire protection at 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, and water protection for spray (not waterproof - not to be submerged under water). This is not a security (no locks) safe. See the video!

The "Sentry GB20L Guardian Storage Box" is a very nice file box. I would assume that the claims made about surviving a hot fire for 20 minutes are true. Fire is something I could not test. What I could test was whether it could take water being sprayed at it, in my case a garden hose, without filling with water. I sprayed the unit with the top on tight with the clamps down as shown. I sprayed water on the sides, top and directly at the seam between the lid and sides. I then turned the unit on its side and again sprayed. I turned the unit on its side in my test since this could easily happen during a fire from various causes including the force of a fire hose. It had water all over the inside of the unit with just a minute or two of spraying. The instruction papers which I left inside were soaked. This unit is heavy and easy to get into and will make a good file box, but not necessarily keep your papers entirely safe. I have a locking safe about the same size as the Sentry.I payed only about twice the price for the safe as compared with the Sentry Storage Box. The safe will float, and protect the interior from water and fire. The Sentry storage box will likely do neither. I would recommend the "Sentry Storage box" only as a very heavy file box.

Trying to avoid buying a large safe for important papers, a hard drive and photos, I ordered two different types of Sentry storage items. On the plus size, the Guardian Storage Box is very sturdy but not too heavy to move between rooms. And I'm certain that in the event of a fire or water leakage, my items will be safer in these than they were just on a bookcase shelf And, while the interior dimensions are as stated, "...(HxWxD), and has interior measurements of 12 x 10 x 15 inches," I misread them and consequently can store less than expected. If you do not need something that locks and do not have a large volume to store, this appears to be a viable solution. Unfortunately for me, I'd have to buy several to hold everything I'd like to and it would not be cost effective. In fact, as far as photos, it would be much cheaper to send them off for scanning or do it myself and then save the usb drives rather than the paper photos.

I was excited at the chance of getting a bigger secure file box but a bit disappointed when I finally got this. First, as others have pointed out, there is no way to lock the box. I was hoping it would at least have a hole through the lid and box or through the handles that hold the lid on so that a padlock could be put on it. A lot of the storage box's around this size at least have some way to put a padlock on them. I suppose I could put a hasp and padlock on it somehow. The other thing that's odd about it is its size inside. It appears to be the right size to hold regular sized hanging folders. But, it's about a half inch to narrow. If it was about 3/4 inch wider it would be the perfect size to put a wire stand in it to hold the regular sized hanging folders. After some looking I found by the measurements of the inside of the box, 9.75" deep, 12.25" wide, & 15.25" long, and looking for legal size storage folders it should be just the right size for those. I've never worked with that size documents before but there should be a small frame for legal size hanging folders to just fit in this box. Since from its odd size letter size papers don't fit very well in it but it should work for legal size papers that you need to store.
All though it may be made to survive a fire and keep items inside safe from damage, since the lid can't be locked onto it, in a fire, all it would take is one good blast from a fire hose and the lid would go one way, the box another way, and the contents every which way. If you live along the Gulf Coast where you can get hit with a hurricane it might be usable for storing semi-valuables to protect them from possible storm damage. Even though they are quite heavy, even full of papers and other items, it should still float in a flood.

I don't know why, but I assumed that this box came with the files shown in the picture--it does not. Also, I found that hanging files do not fit,the box will not close fully. However, there is ample interior space to store files, items, etc..., and the latches fasten securely. There is no means of locking the box to secure contents. The box is heavy, presumably because of the material needed to ensure that it is both fire and water safe. I would recommend this storage box only to those who absolutely need fire/and or water protection for important paperwork. Anyone else seeking file storage would be better served by something lighter in weight with a locking mechanism.

I love that they are so much lighter then our old one...it would have been better if there was a little lip on them for the folder hooks..i am thinking of what I can put there...the top closed with the folders on the lip but there is nothing to keep them from slipping right off if moved a hair
