Been looking for a second safe to house less firearms, and more stamp albums; but seem most I've searched for are tailored towards guns and less toward books/literature/paper.

Any out there have a decent safe with adjustable shelves that accommodates books and so forth?

The problem always becomes humidity control. I use different products in my gun safe to combat moisture but it is a pain. Paper and stamps are not worth the risk unless I guess you live in the desert.

Fireproof safes have a double wall with an insulating material in between. During a fire this material hydrates to keep the temperature down inside the safe. But that causes everything in the safe to be subject to very high humidity levels. Not good for mint stamps.

Thanks for the replies; I use the silicon desiccant packs in the bottom of my current safe to help control humidity; although it is strategically located as well in a room with a return air and a register over said safe; best I can do in SW Florida.

That said, looking for models/makes of safes more tailored towards books and paper.

I've actually thought about simply turning an existing closet in to somewhat of a "safe" room by installing a metal door as well, but prefer a safe.

Thanks again.

A Solid Hardwood should do, Yale locks drilled deep so they cannot be stuffed with cloth or paper to keep them open. I wish I could move to TX where one can shoot thieves.
