1. The Purpose Of Government-Approved Safes

Government-approved safes, often referred to as high-security safes or certified safes, serve the purpose of safeguarding items of high value. They are commonly used by businesses, government institutions, financial organizations, and even individuals who need to secure assets such as cash, jewelry, important documents, and firearms.

2. Stringent Standards And Certification

One of the distinguishing features of government-approved safes is the rigorous standards they must meet to earn certification. These standards are set by government agencies or independent testing organizations and are aimed at ensuring that the safes provide a high level of protection against various threats, including burglary, fire, and environmental damage.

3. The Role In National Security

Government-approved safes are not limited to the protection of personal and corporate assets; they also play a crucial role in national security. Government agencies, military facilities, and defense contractors rely on these safes to secure classified information, weapons, and critical infrastructure. The strict certification standards ensure that these safes are up to the task of safeguarding sensitive data and assets that are vital to the nation’s security.

Choosing the Right Government-Approved Safe

Selecting the appropriate government-approved safe is a critical decision. It involves assessing your specific needs and the level of protection required. Factors to consider when choosing a safe include size, type (such as floor safes, wall safes, or gun safes), the materials used in construction, and the various certification ratings, whether for burglary, fire, or environmental protection.

Vault Systems: Adaptable and GSA Certified

Vault systems have evolved significantly over the years. In the past, vaults were constructed by pouring concrete directly at the location where they were needed. These concrete structures were reinforced with steel, commonly known as “rebar.” However, modern vaults are now predominantly constructed using modular panels. These panels are assembled to create a six-sided structure, and the floor of the vault may consist of either the building’s concrete slab or modular panels.

Federal Specification AA-V-2737, titled “Modular Vault Systems,” provides guidelines for the use of panels that can be assembled to create a GSA (Government Services Administration) approved modular vault. It’s essential that such a vault includes a Class 5 GSA approved vault door, meeting the requirements specified in Federal Specification AA-D-600D and its Amendment 4.

The advantage of modular construction lies in its flexibility. A modular vault can be reconfigured, disassembled, or relocated as needed. This adaptability is particularly useful in situations where you need to build a vault on an elevated floor within a leased building. The panels can be easily transported via a personnel elevator to the desired location. When the vault is no longer necessary, it can be disassembled and removed.

Today, multiple manufacturers offer GSA approved modular vault panels. To find a list of these manufacturers, please refer to the Ordering Information tab here: https://exwc.navfac.navy.mil/DoD-Lock-Program/Security-Hardware/GSA-Approved-Modular-Vault-Systems/
