The Hollon 45 Gun Black Hawk 1 Hour Fireproof Gun Safe BHS-45 is a dependable large-size gun cabinet that will keep your valued belongings protected from fire, water, and theft. One of the first lines of defense for this gun vault is a high-security lock.
The Hollon Black Hawk gives you a choice of secure safe locks. The SecuRam SafeLogic electronic lock is a UL-listed Type 1 lock. This means that it is highly resistant to manipulation. If an incorrect code is entered 4 times the SafeLogic will go into lock-down mode for 4 minutes. If would-be thieves (or kids who want to play with your gun collection) try to guess the combination it will simply take too long and be too troublesome. 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 needing a new one. The low battery signal tells you when it needs changing.
Relockers Protect the Lock
This lock has an internal relocker that triggers the bolts when it is damaged. If would-be thieves try to use a hammer and punch tool to push the lock out of its frame, then the internal relocker will be activated. Thieves might also try to use a drill to cut around the lock and get in the safe that way. The Black Hawk series has a ball-bearing hardplate welded into the door to protect against this type of attack. 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 spins uselessly.
Keep Your Property Secure
This gun cabinet keeps your gun collection safely locked away, protected by a number of safety features. There are 14 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. 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. If burglars can't locate your safe then they can't break in! This safe weighs 980 lbs unloaded, so if you place it on an upper floor make sure that the structure can support the weight. This gun cabinet comes with 4 pre-drilled anchor bolt holes so you can bolt it down. This stops the safe from tipping over and prevents thieves from gaining prying leverage on the door. Placing the safe near a wall or in a corner makes attacks on the sides and back much more difficult.
How Many Guns Can a Gun Safe Fit?
The “45 gun capacity” measurement is an estimate based on averages. Your mileage may vary depending on your particular collection. The BHS-45 has 31 cubic feet of interior space – plenty of space to grow into. The fully adjustable interior gun rack with its foam-backed cushioned gray surface keeps your rifles and other long guns snugly put away. The steel-reinforced top shelf 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 charge your electronics and keep them secure at the same time. An LED light kit with motion sensor technology lets you see what you're doing.
Outside dimensions for this gun vault are 45”L x 28”W x 72”H. Inside dimensions are 41"L x 23"W x 68"H. The durable gray powder-coated texture finish resists smears and fingerprints so it stays looking spiffy. The 5-spoke safe handle has a black chrome finish, as does the lock, for a stylish look. The Hollon logo and scroll work are black, so your gun cabinet looks as rugged on the outside as it is tough on the inside. Hollon backs up their products with a 1-year limited parts and labor warranty, a 2-year limited replacement part warranty, and a limited lifetime fire and burglary replacement warranty.
Peace of Mind in Case of Fire
A good quality gun vault will protect your prized possessions from fire and water damage. You don't have to worry about your property surviving a fire only to be destroyed by water. Hollon's Black Hawk gun safes feature a heat-activated door seal that expands during a fire, making the safe air and water-tight, so that the contents stay nice and dry. These safes are fire rated for 1 hour with the external temperature at a blistering 1400°F, while the inside stays a relatively cool 350°F.
