UL Listed for Security
- UL hires professional safe crackers try and breach the security of safes. For home and gun safes, UL uses four tests. If the safe passes, all safes within that series receives UL's Residential Security Container (RSC) certification. If a safe does not pass, it's back to the drawing board.
- Test methods include: prying, drilling, punching, chiseling, and tampering attacks to the safe's lock, handle, mechanism and body of the safe. UL even gets to view the engineering drawings prior to the test, thus giving them a head start in knowing where to drill.
- Here are four tests, all timed and very stringent:
- The first test is done by drilling the lock's tumblers attempting to make the lock act as if the combination was dialed.
- The second test is to pry the dial off and knock out the lock tumblers through the lock's back plate permitting the locking bolt to retract.
- The third test attempts to punch in the handle shaft to push out the cam/gear mechanism in order to bypass the lock.
- And the fourth test is to cut a hole in the side of the safe body and attempt to side punch the locking bolts to break the lock or mechanism.
- In every case, Liberty Safes protected against entry and received UL's Residential Security Container (RSC) certification.
- In the following security pages, we will show the security features that made this possible.
