Challenger Series Utility Safes


Two of the most important elements in utility safe construction are steel and the type of fire protection provided. MERIK put the steel back in safes. We construct all of our safes from the "outside in." We start with an outer steel body, add a proprietary cement filled body cavity (not sheet rock or dry fill mix that can be easily penetrated with common tools), then add an interior steel security liner. The rugged cement filled body cavity and the interior solid steel liner provides two additional barriers to further prevent attempted forced entry. MERIK builds safes up to higher standards, many of which were removed by many other manufacturers in order to sell down to a low price point, rendering most safes ineffective against a tool attack.
