Can THE truckvault
Take The HEAT?
It’s a common question posed by TruckVault customers. Yes, based on our product testing. However, it must be stated that TruckVault units do not have an official fireproof rating.
We recently had the privilege of participating in a Day Creek Fire Department training session. TruckVault supplied a Dodge Durango, fondly named The Durangatang, complete with a TruckVault unit for the department to burn in a controlled setting. Check out the video below to see these professionals in action, and how the TruckVault fared in the end.
As our crew was packing to leave, the team was quickly ushered away from The Durangatang which spontaneously reignited (see minutes 23-61 on the graph). Our sensor stayed online during this time and firefighters continued their work on the vehicle. While the MacBook Pro was not inside the drawer at this time, all other gear, including the ammo magazines, were at the mercy of the TruckVault’s integrity. Surprisingly, upon re-approach to the vehicle, all items remained intact and cool to the touch.
The Durangatang will live on in TruckVault history. Not just as ashes and charred framing, but as a testament to how extreme our team is willing to push product testing for the sake and safety of our customers.
