Firelock™ is the world’s leading manufacturer of media-rated modular vault chambers. Unlike poured-in-place concrete vaults, Firelock vaults are constructed from individual panels, filled with a heat-resistant ceramic material and are lightweight, movable, and expandable. When combined with current high density storage systems, Firelock vaults offer extremely high space efficiency and a considerable cost advantage per cubic foot of storage.
The value of assets stored in Firelock vaults today reaches hundreds of billions of dollars and ranges from priceless animation cells and World Wrestling Entertainment videos to pharmaceutical research records and U.S. Department of Education student loan information.
With a Firelock server vault, you invest in the highest performing vault on the market today to ensure the protection of your most vital records and irreplaceable items. You gain the ability to store microfilm, computer media, file servers and paper in one location, and the peace of mind that comes from knowing that all the environmental and fire protection elements are in place.
Firelock has been in business for over two decades, and during that time has installed over 1,200 vaults around the world. In the United States there are vaults in 44 of the 50 states, as well as Europe, the United Kingdom, Scandinavia, South America, Africa, Korea, China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Because of this broad experience, Firelock knows how to build a vault that will provide our clients with maximum protection today and have the flexibility to grow with them over time.
Features & Benefits
|Modular construction||Built from panels that are 24 inches wide and can vary in height from eight to 20 feet, vaults are custom-designed to meet current needs and can expand as those needs change.
Lightweight, modular vaults allow for maximum storage flexibility without exceeding floor load requirements in high rise office buildings.
|High temperature protection||
|Solid framework||Unique structural steel design that offers 3 times the strength of a normal building construction.|
|Magnetic shielding and roof protection||Magnetic shielding components protect against the most common electromagnetic fields that can damage media stored archivally in one location. Firelock’s Roof Deck protects the vault when sprinklers activate or during fire fighting process.|
|Essential environmental planning and design||Firelock vaults are pre-designed to integrate dust and vapor resistant lighting, humidity control, and fire suppression systems which are not harmful to the environment and do not add to global warming.
Proper environmental control is critical for sensitive microfilm and magnetic media. Our AC Duct/Damper assembly provides air circulation without violating the integrity of the vault.
