Fireproof
Protects data from loss up to 1550°F for 1/2 hour *

DataCast endothermic fire insulation technology protects your data from extreme heat. The DataCast formulation forms a chemical bond with water molecules that, at temperatures above 160°F, releases water vapor to limit the internal temperature of the unit during a fire.

* Per ASTM E119

Fan-less Near Silent Cooling
Perfect for home, small office or studios

Our latest FloSafe airflow cooling technology designed for near silent operation. Perfect for customers with sensitive ears who want the cooling and fire protection but want the silence. If destructive heat levels are sensed, such as in a fire, the FloSafe vents limit and protect your data from the extreme heat.

Waterproof
Protects data from loss up to 10ft for 72 hours

HydroSafe water barrier technology is designed to protect data loss from fresh or salt water damage, including full immersion. While keeping your data dry, the HydroSafe technology still allows heat to dissipate during normal operation.
