Reinforced Fire Doors:
Our new Reinforced Fire Door adds 2 layers of fire protection to either the 3/8” or 1/4” solid steel plate, then reinforces the door with additional 10-gauge steel for added security (Over 30% thicker steel than other composite type doors). This nearly doubles the standard fire protection from 1450°F in 50 minutes to temperatures of 1680°F in 90 minutes. The Reinforced Fire Door is standard on the Titan, Executive and Guardian Series as well as the Executive and In-Swing Vault Doors.
Fort Knox has a very extensive preparation and multi-stage paint process and uses only the finest professional auto paint available. Our state-of-the-art paint facility includes a state-of-the-art oven to bake on the paint for the most durable finish possible. Fort Knox is the original author of the "Lifetime Paint Warranty."
Fort Knox has made an interior of your safe Rock Solid. With our commitment to excellence, we don't just use glues and screws to adhere the interiors to the inside of the safe. We stud weld the fire board and shelving system to the metal interior. This means that your shelving brackets are connected, all the way through, rock solid quality. Fort Knox offers a synthetic carpet with a latex backing to insure resistance to elements such as moisture, heat and excessive wear. Our interior can also change with your needs. Our modular interior is again, flame resistant and will not attract or retain moisture. The soft carpeted shelves and gun racks provide protection for your guns and valuables and have an elegant appearance.
Clutch Driven Spinner Handle:
Our attractive, clutch-driven handles are designed to slip when excessive force is applied to prevent damage and foil attacks.
Heavy Gauge Steel and Double Reinforcing Welds:
Each Fort Knox safe uses American made steel with up to 80,000 psi tensile strength-it's truly tuff stuff! All welds are inspected to insure 100% penetration from the inside of the safe to the outside. Then we reinforce the entire structure with additional welds on the inside of the safe for optimum strength.
Reinforced Steel Liner:
For added security, Fort Knox offers an optional 10 gauge steel liner, the thickest in the industry. By having a thicker liner, a would-be burglar will have to attack twice. This will buy twice the time and twice the security.
1½ Inch Locking Bolts & Star Corner Bolts:
Another first in the home and gun safe industry is our patented Star Corner Bolts. This puts a gear-driven, one and a half inch diameter locking bolt in each of the four corners of the door. This makes it virtually impossible to peel the corners of the door. Again, Fort Knox leads the industry in innovative design.
1¼ Certified Fire Protection:
This standard fire package has been tested and certified to keep the inside of the safe under 350°F, while outside temperatures reach 1450°F in 50 minutes. We use two continuous layers of 5/8" UL listed, type "C" fireboard insulation and a high temperature, heat sensitive expanding door seal for optimum protection. You deserve to be certain-don't settle for less!
