The Hollon 12 Gun Black Hawk 1 Hour Fireproof Gun Safe BHS-12 is a good quality gun vault that will protect your precious belongings from theft, as well as fire and water. Much of the damage your property sustains during a fire may in fact come from the water used to put it out. Hollon's Black Hawk gun safes feature a heat-activated door seal that expands during a fire, making the safe air and water-tight. These safes are fire rated for 1 hour with the external temperature at 1400°F, while the inside stays a relatively cool 350°F.
Superior Security Features
This gun cabinet keeps your gun collection safely locked away, protected behind a battery of safety features. There are 10 massive 1½” solid steel active locking bolts on all 4 sides of the door. The 10-gauge steel construction gives you a solid layer of protection. A ball-bearing hardplate is welded into the door to protect the lock against drilling and punching attacks. Even a high-speed drill is no match for this hardplate – the ball bearings will snap the drill bit or dissipate its force so that it just rotates forever without having any effect.
Proper placement of the safe will do a lot to enhance its security. It is better to place it in an out-of-the-way spot, such as the basement, forcing would-be thieves to find it before they can even start trying to break in. The safe weighs 375 lbs. While it's unlikely that burglars would try to load it up and take it away, you can prevent that by bolting it down (4 pre-drilled anchor bolt holes are provided). This also prevents it from tipping over, and stops thieves from gaining prying leverage on the door. Placing the safe near a wall or in a corner makes an attack on the sides and back much more difficult.
Choice of High Security Lock
This gun safe gives you several options to choose from when it comes to locks. The SecuRam SafeLogic e-lock has a variety of security features. If an incorrect code is entered 4 times the SafeLogic will go into lock-down mode for 4 minutes. This makes it too time-consuming for thieves (or misbehaving teenagers) to guess the combination through trial and error. This UL-listed Type 1 lock has an internal relocker that will trigger the bolts if the lock is damaged, as by a drill or punch attempt. There is 1 manager code and 1 user code. The manager can easily delete or reset the user code when necessary. This energy efficient electronic lock uses a single 9-volt battery, opening 10,000 times or more before you have to change it. The low battery signal tells you when it needs changing.
A Place for Everything
This gun safe has a maximum capacity of 12 guns, with 7.5 cubic feet of interior space. There is a fully customizable interior gun rack with a foam-backed plush gray surface. The top shelf is steel-reinforced so that it can support heavy loads. The heavy-duty canvas pocket door organizer holds pistols, ammunition, and other miscellany. The Black Hawk gun safes come equipped with a UL-listed fire-resistant electrical outlet with 3 plugs and 2 USB outlets, so that you can lock up your electronics and charge them at the same time. An LED light kit with motion sensor technology lets you see what you're doing.
Before you make your gun safe purchase decision, give some thought to the future. Do you anticipate your collection growing? You want a safe that can continue to accommodate your needs for several years down the road.
Clean Classic Style
The durable gray powder-coated texture finish doesn't show smears and fingerprints for a clean and tidy look. The hardware has a black chrome finish, as does the lock, for a cool contemporary style. Exterior dimensions of this gun cabinet are 22”L x 16”W x 59”H. Interior dimensions are 18½"L x 12½"W x 55⅝"H.
