Fire Resistant Filing Cabinets

In minutes, a fire can wipe out your business and change your life. It takes very little time to start a fire, a carelessly thrown cigarette butt, and an electrical short circuit, things that happen through sheer carelessness, events that are not even in anyone’s control.

Fire devours paper rapidly and greedily. It takes lifetime’s work to set up a business but a few minutes to destroy it. The record of transactions, policies, accounts receivable and payable, statements, licenses, agreements, formulae and blue prints are invaluable. You can get compensation through insurance, but once your vital documents turn to ashes, there is absolutely no recovery. So, make a wise decision before it is too late.


  • More protection through robust construction : The body of a Godrej Fire Resisting Filing Cabinet is designed for greater strength & rigidity. It is fabricated using modern precision tooling and sheet metal working equipment. Only prime quality galvanized steel is used. The thickness of the steel addresses both the structural strength requirements as well as the need to minimize absorption thereby conduction of heat. The cabinet has separate inner and outer shells reinforced in vital places to form a rigid integral body. So, if a floor collapses due to fire, the cabinet can withstand the fall and the avalanche of debris on it.
  • Formidable resistance to heat : Godrej Fire Resisting Filing cabinets have unique features which offer unequalled resistance to heat from fires or hot gases.
  • Tongue & Groove Construction : A special Tongue-and-groove construction employed to prevent the passage of flames and hot gases to the interior of the drawer.

  • The 2-hour fire-impact test at Underwriters Laboratories USA involved heating the cabinet, in a specially designed furnace to almost 1850 F, dropping it from a height of 9 meters (30 feet) and subsequently heating it again in an inverted position to almost 1850 F. Even after the entire duration of the test, the paper records inside the drawers were found to be usable, demonstrating its superior fire and impact resisting capabilities.
