Browning safes make a great investment. Whether it is to protect valuables from fire or theft, or to safely keep guns away from curious children, owning a safe is a great idea. And a beautifully handcrafted safe just looks fantastic. Contrary to what you may think, all safes are not created equal. Let’s cut through it just a bit and discover just what it is about Browning safes that makes them one of the world-class leaders in the safe industry. They have been making safes for over 30 years and all of the quality, precision, tradition, and craftsmanship that they are known for goes into each and every safe that comes off the production line. Let’s look at what makes Browning different, and what to shop for when looking at safes.
First of all, Browning safes is the innovator of many of the features that are marketed by safe companies as premium or essential features in their safes, like vault type cam locking systems, advanced fire protection, easy access, high capacity gun storage, and living room quality finish.
Let’s explore some of the things to look for in a safe. These are things you may not have thought about unless you are in the business of making safes. Browning safes adhere to the old adage, what you can’t see does matter. Not all browning safes have all the features, but with a little effort on your part you can easily learn about them and decide what ones are important to you.
Obviously, theft protection has to be the first thing to look at. Your safe must be able to keep an intruder at bay until he either gives up because it is taking too much time, or making too much noise. Criminals often start by attacking the safe door. Browning safes have a dual form door on many of their safes. This is much better than safes made with just one thick door because it makes the door rigid and strong. Some other safes have doors that can be pried, bent, and warped on the hinges. Even with a thick door, it can still bend. Not good.
Browning safes have a locking mechanism that allows the locking bolts to move on a cam system. External force is, therefore, ineffective against this system because pressure applied goes to the cam and not to the lock itself. Other manufactures bolt systems can be opened by drilling the side of the safe and applying pressure to a bolt. Browning safes have protection right up front and makes it virtually impossible for a thief to gain access because the bolt is isolated from the lock.
Another thing to check is the door frame itself. You want to find steel reinforcement, not wood trim or even sheet rock for strength. The door frame is a critical part of the safe and Browning safes are, once again, solid with real steel reinforcement. External hinges allow the door to open 180 degrees. And, even if they are cut off, the door still remains closed because the bolts are still engaged behind the hinges. This feature also makes the safe easier to move by allowing the door to be removed. #5 screw diameter
