The panels of the VeriTrust vault are constructed from spun ceramic fiber capable of withstanding temperatures well above 2000°F during five hours of testing. The UL Class 125 vault door assembly is made up of both an outer vault door and an inner door. A thermal break between doors enhances data protection by increasing the barriers to migrating heat. The unique structural steel design offers 3 times the strength of a normal building construction.
The VeriTrust vault exceeds NARA standards for military, federal, state and local government protection of archives. We maintain the only UL certified fireproof vault that meets rigorous specifications of the following certifications:
- NFPA 75 class 125 – four hour magnetic media
- NFPA 232 class 350 – four hour rating
- ANSI IT9.11
VeriTrust’s vault is equipped with FM-200 and 3M Novec dry-gas Fire Suppression System, control panels, sensors, tank, piping and door interfaces for automatically sealing the vault in the event of a smoke or heat detection within the vault chamber.
VeriTrust maintains precise offsite tape storage environmental conditions of 40% relative humidity and 68°F; which can extend media lifetime from 5 to 15 years. These conditions are closely monitored 24/7 through an environmental monitoring system.
