UL RSC Ratings
UL RSC Ratings on gun safes can be confusing. What is this rating? Is it important? Should all gun safes have this rating? Let’s answer these questions and more as we explain why Sturdy Gun Safe doesn’t carry the UL RSC rating.
UL RSC Ratings are security ratings for gun safes that show the gun safe could resist an attempted break in for 5 minutes using simple hand tools. Impressed? We hope not. These security requirements are very low, so it says far more to exceed a UL RSC Rating as Sturdy Gun Safes do.
The UL RSC Rating would come in handy if one was to compare a cheap gun safe without this rating to cheap gun safe with one, but comparing it to a gun safe like Sturdy's wouldn't do any good. Gun safe manufacturers love to get customers to believe the UL RSC Rating carries a lot of weight in attempts to disqualify higher security gun safes without UL RSC Ratings priced equivalent to their own.
Luckily, Sturdy Gun Safe doesn't need a UL RSC Rating to show how secure their safes are. They offer many packages to upgrade the body and door thickness to near high security TL Rating safe standards, and their linkage design is also similar to TL Rating standards. With all this security, why doesn't Sturdy Gun Safe just get the UL RSC Rating anyways? The answer is extremely high costs which would need to be passed down to the customer and it still wouldn't be saying as much about the security of the gun safes as the torchere videos prove.
In conclusion, the UL RSC Rating is simply a low standard security rating for long gun safes that might come in handy when comparing low end safes to each other, but not higher end security safes like Sturdy. Therefore, the UL RSC Rating isn't worth the price that Sturdy's customers would end up paying for it.
