IT security cabinet GranITe vs. standard cabinet 

Upon our request the Federal Insititute for Materials Reseach and Testing performed the following test:

Test of our GranITe-Room vs. standard F90 security room (made of standard F90 sandwich panels). 
The result: Only 5 kg TNT are required to destroy the standard F90 cabinet almost completely whereas the hard- and software within the GranITe-Room withstood a detonation with 12 kg TNT.
