Peace of Mind for a Lifetime

Final Blog

At every point in our life we are creating memories that we wish we could bottle up and save.  Whether you’re moving into a new home, getting married, expecting a baby or even a grandchild, now is the perfect time to afford yourself a little peace of mind.   The things that matter most, they aren’t just hard to replace, they’re impossible.  From the drawing your child did just to say I love you or the picture of you in front of your new house, these are the memories you’ll cherish for a lifetime.  Make sure they’re safe to share with generations to come by storing them in a SentrySafe chest or file.

It’s peace of mind for a lifetime. 

Check out these ideas to help you keep your precious memories safe!

SentrySafe Demonstrates Industry Innovation at National Hardware Show

Blog Hardware show

This week SentrySafe is traveling to Las Vegas for the National Hardware Show. With two new product lines, SentrySafe is proving once again to be an industry leader. Based on consumer feedback, SentrySafe has modernized our products to give them sleek designs and increased security protection. It’s just another way SentrySafe continues to make products to fit your life and create peace of mind for the items most important to you, your family and your home.

SentrySafe developed the first fire-resistant safe over 80 years ago. Since then we’ve been supplying affordable protection to our customers all over the world. Now we’re releasing new rugged designs to our chests and files for the modern home.

SentrySafe is also releasing a fire-resistant safe equipped with an audible alarm to alert you when your safe is being moved or pried open. It’s the next level of protection for those concerned with theft.

We’re proud to add these new products to our full line of safes, all being displayed at the National Hardware Show. For those visiting the show, come join us for a sneak peek at these great new products at booth 6621. Not at the show? Stay tuned this week. We’ll be revealing more about these new additions throughout the week.

SentrySafe Helps #KeepEarthSafe

SentrySafe works hard to come up with new ways to lower our impact on the environment. Tell us how you pitch in to help keep our earth safe on Twitter using #keepearthsafe for a chance to win a fire-resistant safe.  A winner will announced on Twitter Friday April 25th at 10 AM EST!

SentrySafe creates peace of mind around the world by providing people a reliable way to protect the things that matter most to them and their family. But there are things we wish we could protect that don’t really fit in a safe—like our environment. That’s why SentrySafe extends our commitment, not only in the products we make, but the way we make them.

You’ve probably heard that replacing the lights in your home with a more energy efficient light bulb can help you protect the environment, but you may wonder just what type of impact a little light can have? In our case, it’s a small change with a big impact on how much we affect the environment. When we installed LED lights in our warehouses and parking lots, we achieved a huge energy savings. Between these facilities, SentrySafe saved approximately 150,584 kwh per year and reduced an average of 150 kw a day with the new lighting and controls put in place. This will help SentrySafe to reduce carbon emissions by roughly 106 metric tons a year. That’s the same as taking 22 passenger vehicles off the road or the electricity used in about 16 homes in one year!

Last year, SentrySafe also reconfigured our chilled water system including the installation of a larger buffer tank. These changes saved more than 98,800 kwh and 15.8 kw and reduced approximately 69.7 metric tons of carbon emissions annually. That’s the same amount of emissions created by consuming 162 barrels of oil!

Recycling is also a huge part of the SentrySafe culture! It’s a clear solution for reducing our contribution to landfills and emissions created by incinerators. Last year SentrySafe recycled approximately 341,447 lbs. of plastic, 3,112,340 lbs. of metal, 303,440 lbs. of cardboard and 6,033 gallons of oil/coolant!

So now that you know some of the things we did last year to help protect our environment, we want to know what did you do? Join us on Twitter using #keepearthsafe to tell us one thing you did last year to help the environment for a chance to win a fire-resistant safe! We’ll announce a winner Friday April 25th at 10:00 AM EST
