Liberty gun safes take longer to break into than their competitors. It is said that the average burglary lasts 7 minutes. So Liberty Safe says that making a more secure safe is all about buying more time. The longer it takes a burglar to break into your safe, the less chance that he will succeed because he will just run out of time. To prove their security, Liberty ran a pry test between their entry level safe, the Centurion, and a competitor's equivalent entry level safe.
Both were full size gun safes that were tipped on their backs, this allows for better leverage. Ttwo men then attacked each safe, one had a regular pry bar and the other had a much longer, steel pry bar that allowed for better leverage. The timer was started to see if the safe's could hold up for the 7 minute average burglary time. The competitor safe lasted for 1:15, the Liberty Centurion gun safe lasted for over 10:00 minutes, about 10 times longer than its competitors.
If you think this is impressive, then you will really be pleased with Liberty gun safes higher end models. All of these models: the Colonial, Franklin, Lincoln and Presidential, come with security upgrades. One upgrade in particular is what Liberty calls "Tough Doors". There are five main features to a Tough Door:
- They are a composite door that is thicker normal, at least 1" - 1.5" thick.
- There door has inner steel plates to increase the door's rigidity.
- These Liberty gun safes have larger diameter bolts, bolts that are 25% - 50% larger than their competitors. The bolts also longer, extending 33% further from the door and into the frame. This makes it much more difficult to pry the door away from the frame.
- The higher end Liberty gun safes also have anti-pry tabs which increases a safes resistance to prying by up to 300% than safes without these tabs.
- They have more bolts along more sides of the doors. Instead of just having bolts along one side like most entry level safes, the Colonial and Franklin have bolts along three sides, and the Lincoln and Presidential safes have bolts on all four sides of the door.
All Liberty gun safes are Underwriters Laboratory tested for security. In these tests professional safe crackers try to break into the safe. When a safe passes a certain level of security test, they are rated for that test. All Liberty safes are UL rated, with the higher end safes earning higher security ratings than the safe below them.
Later, Liberty did the same pry test that was done on the Colonial and its competitor, but on the higher level Lincoln safe with the Tough Door. For over an hour two guys tried to break into the Lincoln safe with pry bars, before they gave up due to exhaustion. That was one tough safe! If you need security, then look into Liberty gun safes, and you are sure to a model that suits your needs.
