Not all safes are created equal. Why?

More Steel + Fire Protection = Peace of Mind

Two of the most important elements in gun safe and gun vault construction are steel and fire protection. We construct all of our gun safes and gun vaults with an outer steel body and an interior steel security liner. The interior steel liner provides a secondary barrier to further prevent attempted forced entry.

  • The interior steel security liner is not an option. It is included in all MERIK gun safes and gun vaults.
  • The interior steel liner is the same thickness as the outer steel body. 
  • The interior steel liner creates a "Safe within a Safe."

The construction of a gun safe or gun vault's door and walls are the most critical line of defense from preventing a determined criminal from gaining access to your valuables.

We focus on the following critical areas...

  1. Door plate steel thickness
  2. Door edge steel thickness  
  3. Exterior wall steel thickness
  4. Secondary Interior steel security liner thickness (the Safe within a Safe) 
  5. The placement, size, and numbers of active locking bolts
  6. Lock and locking mechanisms

The above features work in harmony to provide a well-designed gun safe or gun vault at each price point within our 4 Levels of Security. See the chart below to understand the differences in the MERIK Levels of Security from model to model.
