In today's marketplace, not all gun safes are built equal. The security offered by cheap, lightweight gun safes is often little more than illusion. Deceptive-looking gun safes lull many buyers into a false sense of security.
Remember in the old movies how the bank robbers used dynamite to blow up safes? Those were heavy, tough safes ‐ too tough to break into using conventional tools. Unfortunately, dynamite is no longer needed to enter many of today's lightweight home safes - all a thief needs is a couple of large screwdrivers.
Champion still builds gun safes the old way: heavy and tough! the gun safes are built up to a standard, not down to a price. In fact, Champion Gun Safes are the heaviest, strongest, toughest safes on the market.
A Champion Safe body is pressure formed from thick A-36 carbon steel plate with fully welded top and bottom caps ‐ not from smaller pieces of steel skip-welded together. Unlike our competitors, all welds are continuous.
All Champion doors are built out of heavy A-36 carbon steel plate with sandwiched fire insulation. A composite door offers more security and better fire protection than a plate steel door.
Champion uses only heavy-duty, ball bearing internal hinges. Internal hinges cost considerably more but add additional security.
To protect the lock from attack, Champion is the only home security safe company to bond industrial diamonds to its through-hardened, tungsten steel hardplate ‐ whereas many safe companies use only case hardened mild steel to save costs.
According to many locksmiths, Champion has the "strongest, smoothest boltworks in the industry." Champion is the only company to use active bolts on all of its safes ‐ no cheap dead bolts. Roughneck™ bolt guides provide lifetime ease of operation.
Champion Safe uses the two best locks built in the world. All mechanical locks are Sargent & Greenleaf™; all electronic locks are made by La GARD™ or Sargent & Greenleaf™‐ the two most reliable electronic locks made in America.
Champion Safes feature multiple relockers that collectively protect a safe against drilling and forced entry.
Champion Safe is the only home security safe company to use a glass, bank-vault type relocker. Glass relockers come standard in our Crown Series

Remember, it's what's inside that counts.
