Burglar Rating | B-Rate

B-Rate Safes (Also U.L. RSC, Residential Security Container)

B-Rate is a catch-all safe industry rating for essentially any box with a lock on it.

The safe industry had an unwritten standard of ¼ inch body, ½ inch door.

Today, many safe companies use 1/8" steel in the body.

Some will make both 1/8" and 1/4" steel bodies.  

The 1/4" costs more. As steel prices (and shipping costs) increased manufacturers tried many things to reduce their costs. 

No tests are given to provide this rating.

When buying a B-rate safe, look at things such as lock work, hard plates, and relockers.
