Question
We have an old Schwab Safe co. inc with a serial # 708528. We are wondering if it contains any asbestos? That was the only Number it beside Underwriter Laboratories Inc. on the plate. WE are at military installation.

Answer
Schwab has been purchased by Sentry Safe of Rochester NY.

They may be able to tell from the serial number when it was made.

Do you have a pic of it? How old do you think it is?

The only definitive way to tell if a safe contains asbestos is to have it sampled.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
