Safes and Hidden Storage

Vaults and Safes

In addition to ballistic and brute force protection, it’s possible to construct safe spaces that require heavier duty security. These spaces can withstand greater offensive forces for much longer timeframes.

Walk-in vaults are guarded by blast proof doors. The lock options include both mechanical and electronic locks and are built to withstand the most severe attacks.

Vaults are typically designed as a smaller ultra secure space inside a larger secure space. Existing rooms can be modified and strengthened, or completely self-contained rooms can be built inside a regular room.
