If you were buying a modular vault (with huge interior air volume), furnace, or oven, I would suggest using insulations commonly used on those items.

Since you are looking at safes, I would suggest using insulations commonly found in their construction. There are only three places you will find ceramics in the safe industry: A few gun safes, the interior compartments of UL listed data safes, and on the doors of the occasional non-UL listed safe where the manufacturer does not have the ability to construct a door with cast materials.

Don't take my word for it, ask any other professional in the safe business (not gun safe business). Every UL rated fire safe, vault door, and file cabinet on the market uses cast material. I am assuming that is because it is the only material that will pass the test.
