The down side to vaults is cost, space and time. It is a big deal to install a vault. Ideally, a vault will be implemented in the construction phase. Either way, you are going to need a qualified professional to assist you such as a locksmith and a general contractor. Again, price may be a concern, the more options, the higher the price tag. If you are going to invest in a gun vault or any type of vault or safe, please consult a professional locksmith.
Here are some things to think about when shopping for a vault safe: Always install all vaults and safes in an accessible area. You would be surprised of the waste of time and money a vault is if the location is not accessible. Think about adding another safe (in a different location) if the location you are putting your vault in is not ideal. Make sure the vault is thick enough (a minimum of ½ inch of steel) Like with all vaults and safes, weight is important! The heavier the gun vault, vault or safe, the better! Don’t forget that vaults also have a UL rating! Do some research and find out what you need! Also don’t forget about resistance to fire. Convenience is important! The way you access a vault will also pay a part in its usefulness and effectiveness. There are electric lock systems that are wonderful, but can get expensive.
