Browning Vault Doors don't try to disguise the fact that a highly secure area is behind them. They are simply highly secure. Period! A properly built vault room allows you the greatest amount of latitude and creativity in the way your guns are displayed. For those of us with collections of unique and rare guns it gives the ability to show or display the guns without moving them in and out of a conventional safe, risking dings and scratches. A vault room using a Browning Vault Door also adds greater versatility allowing safe and secure storage of expensive gear, documents, heirlooms and more.
Or if you are handy, plan it out yourself to design a room that is fully secure top, sides and bottom. This usually involves concrete walls or concrete filled blocks for walls, a secure reinforced ceiling (suspended concrete is ideal), some attention to fire resistance in the walls and ceiling and a sized door location that will fit a Browning Vault Door and the appropriate anchor fasteners.
When all is said and done, for an extensive collection of guns, art or large valuables, a walk-in vault is the ultimate in convenience. To finish off these built-in security areas, Browning clearly offers the finest Vault Door. Vault Doors add strength and a "don't tread on me" safe-like appearance to your home.
Designed to fit a variety of wall types and installation requirements. The minimum rough door opening for the Clamshell Vault Door is 82” X 40”. Clamshell flange design uses an internal and external flange for additional security and improved appearance. Can be secured into an existing door frame using the clamshell flange or, for additional security, using expansion anchors or lag bolts (not included). Clamshell flange has a 3-1/2” range of adjustment to fit walls with a minimum thickness of 8” to a maximum thickness of 11-1/2”.
