We refit old bank safes to create one-of-a-kind, customised, impenetrable firearm storage units
Many low-end, off the shelf gun safes are hopelessly inadequate. They meet the minimum legal specifications but in reality offer absolutely no realistic safeguarding of your firearms.
What Captain Safe do:
- Our onsite experts can refit an old bank safe to your specifications to create a one-of-a-kind, customised gun storage unit.
- We can fully recondition safe locks, hinges, and security mechanisms for the highest standards in the Security Industry.
- Or, if you prefer, we can sell you a brand new gun or firearm safe or vault.
The end result? An impenetrable gun safe to the level of bank-grade security.
Such was the craftsmanship of these second-hand safes that, 40 years on, they remain fully functional and in excellent condition. These safes were built to a specification to ensure that no one could illegally gain entry to the safe … at all … EVER!”
Fire Rating on Your Second-Hand Gun Safe
When it comes to protecting your firearms in the event of a fire, you need to consider a high-quality, durable safe that is adequate for the purposes you are buying it. This includes its fire-resistant rating.
When it comes to our second-hand safes, we make a guesstimate of its tolerance to extreme heat based on years of experience installing and customising bespoke pre-used safes.
Sizing Up Your Needs For a Bespoke Gun Safe
It’s a fact – your gun safe will appear to “shrink” over months and years as your gun collection grows.
Plan to go bigger than you need … if you can afford it, and your storage space allows.
Take into consideration the storage of other items in your safe like sights, scopes, grips, glasses, cleaning gear, spare parts, toolbox, etc.
In terms of your immediate and future firearm storage, our experts at CAPTAIN SAFE can customise for you an impenetrable, fire-resistant bespoke safe that is competitively priced and meets your precise specifications.
Selecting a Pistol Safe
You are not permitted to store ammunition in the same lockbox as your pistol. Hence different lockboxes.
Separately locked compartments provide for storage of a variety of pistols, ammunition, while also multi-purposing as a mum and dad home safe.
So the need for more than one safe is not required.
For example, we can take a Spika Pistol Safe and weld it into an old bank or warehouse safe for incredibly secure storage, while well and truly exceeding, and future-proofing all firearm storage regulations.
Owning Firearms Comes With Responsibility
ALL gun owners / person in possession of a firearm in Australia must ensure that their firearm:
- Is kept safe
- Is not lost or stolen; and
- Does not come into the possession of a person who is not authorized to possess the firearm.
It is acceptable to have a purpose-built storage unit that has two separate lockable compartments (one for firearms and one for ammunition). This is classified as separate storage areas, and therefore suitable.
The key consideration is that firearms cannot be readily accessed by persons not authorised to do so.
In addition to this general safekeeping requirement, there are specific legislative requirements for the safekeeping and storage of firearms that you should familiarise yourself with :
Category A,B,C,D & H
The firearm must be stored in a gun safe that is deemed not easily penetrable.
Category A & B firearm safes can be constructed of hardwood or steel but suggest all gun safes be made of steel.
Should the safe weigh less than 150kg (when empty) it must be securely fixed to the framework of the premises.
It must be fixed securely and must house the firearms with a lock of sturdy construction.
Ammunition storage must be in a separate lockable container/compartment to that of any firearm.
