Enduring Quality

This new 920 cabinet was sent to a federal agency for extensive burn testing in the fall of 2018. Although the side of the cabinet reached approximately 900 degrees Celsius (1650 degrees Fahrenheit), there was no water within the cabinet from the sprinkler discharge and items in plastic bags inside the cabinet were unaffected by smoke and soot.
