Reinforced Fire Protection
The Legend, Titan and Executive models come standard with the Reinforced Fire Door that incorporates advanced engineering to give you our greatest level of fire protection, 16800 in 90 minutes. Additional fire protection and steel is added to the door without reducing the door's metal thickness, as is the case with other brand safes. This protection will keep the contents of your safe at a lower temperature for a much longer period of time. The reinforced Fire Door is also available as an option on the Guardian, Protector and Defender.
Safes with Reinforced Fire Protection.
Fort Knox gun safes with the new Reinforced Fire Door option (RFD) are designed and tested to withstand severe fire with outside temperatures reaching over 16500F within 90 minutes.
Reinforced Fire Door
Our new Reinforced Fire Door adds a layer of fire protection to either the 3/8" or 1/4" solid plate, then reinforces the door with an additional 10-gauge steel for added security (30% thicker steel than other composite type doors). This nearly doubles the standard fire protection from 1450ºF in 50 minutes to temperatures of 1680ºF in 90 minutes. The Reinforced Fire Door is standard on the Legend, Titan, Executive, Guardian, VD Executive 8240, and In-Swing 8240 models.
