(As of: 2nd March 2007)
FRANKFURT/M., March 2007. Diskettes and other electronic data media are damaged at about 55 °C already. Sensitive storage media even age when exposed to sunlight. In many safes, the temperature increases so fast in the event of fire that important corporate data are destroyed very quickly. The only reliable preventive measure for the protection of diskettes is using data cabinets made of special fire-resistant materials. Orientation in the jungle of offers is provided by the blue ECB"S certification marks of the European Security Systems Association (ESSA). These products comply with the European Standard EN 1047-1 for fire resistant products which was recently revised and up-dated to meet the latest requirements.
