    Thumbs up Safes and Moisture

    Has anyone put a florescent light in a safe to stop moisture, and if so how did it work out? Or is a goldenrod the way to go.
    Any info would be appreciated.

    I know this doesn't answer your question about the lights but it is related ....
    I put a couple of Hydrosorbent Dehumdifer bricks in mine & I've never had a problem. I'm in Florida and it is pretty damp down here most of the time.

    The "bricks" are 450 grams of Silica Gel each & is supposed to protect 33 square feet each. They can also be regenerated by warming them up in the oven. I got them at Bass Pro Shop if I remember correctly. Sounds funny but they're great. I have never had a problem with any corrosion or rust & it like a rain forest down here in the summer sometimes.
    Just thought I throw that out there.

    if your interested this is on the box www.dehumidify.com

    I use the goldenrod and silica gel canister, just to be sure. The goldenrod is better than a light bulb for several reasons, it is cheaper to operate and it is designed to circulate warm air in your safe. Try here for a more complete answer to your questions http://www.goldenroddehumidifiers.com/index.htm

    I have a golden rod type heating rod in each safe and have never had a moisture problem. If it's humid where your safe is at, you might want to take extra precautions.
