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

Business-Class Compatibility

Protects data from loss up to 10ft for 72 hours
