    I'm working with the safe pictured, and I would like to determine the weight. I've found a brochure online that matches the size exactly, but the rating seems different. (Class V3 vs 240-280 resistance points).

    I'll speculate "Kos" in the brochure is referring to Kilos? I've research "dwt" but I'm unsure of what unit of weight this is?

    TIA,
    DH

    2500 kilos and the 49 1/4 is hundredweight (cwt) long 112 Lbs though, not short US 100.
    2500 kg = 5500 lbs = 49.1 cwt

    Huw,

    So, a misprint on the brochure. I still had to look up "hundred weight" as I never heard of it, never mind long and short.

    Thank you for setting me straight!
