Fort Knox 2017 Vault Door 8248 Executive
As time goes on, all collections grow. A vault room will give enough secure storage for any collection including guns, personal heirlooms, business and family records, jewelry, photograph and art work. Fort Knox vault doors are designed for easy installation in a custom, walk-in security room. The heavy, fire protected, steel doors can be set in a pre-formed concrete or cement block opening. Your security room with the Inside Release Mechanism, offers safety for your family as well as protection for your valuables. Available in the attractive high gloss centerpiece, that carries many of the same features as our Titan series or the no frills, textured finish for the conservative budget. The inside swing model will compliment your vault as a storm shelter or hide-a-way. Create “Peace of Mind” in knowing your family and other valuables are safe.

Trim Options: Choose from multiple styles, and colors. This includes the standard Classic trims, Elite, Performance, and double Diamond. For those that want to go out of the norm, there is the Riveted Trim. This puts 24 rivets on the door to give it a more industrial look. This goes great with the distressed paint option.
Paint: Every Fort Knox Vault Door comes standard with a textured finish. Textured finishes are great for keeping away fingerprints, and are much more resilient to damage. Gloss finishes are great for use as a center piece in your home, or to express your interests. They are painted with a 5 stage paint process, much like what you would find on a luxury vehicle. For those that want something even more original, the Two-Tone Paint job (Door one color, and the body a different one), the faded paint (door and body different colors, but over sprayed onto the door), or the Distressed Finish (matte black paint, and randomly distressed) can be chosen.
Locking Mechanism: All Fort Knox Vault Doors come standard with a Group 2 S&G mechanical lock. This can be upgraded to a key locking dial, electronic lock, manipulation proof mechanical lock, or even Fort Knox’s Redundant (allows for both a mechanical lock, and electronic lock for ease of access, on one locking bolt).
Inner Steel Liner: This feature is normally overlooked, but is also one of the most important. Adding an inner steel liner basically is creating a door within a door. Each layer of inner steel liner is a 10 gauge steel that is beneath the standard outer steel shell. If a thief is trying to cut into the side of your safe, they may get through the outer layer, only to find another layer to get through. This layer also becomes more difficult than the first due to the location of the steel. Fort Knox allows for up to 4 additional 10 Gauge Inner Steel liners. For the cost, this cannot be beat, and is highly recommended.
5:1 Gear Ratio: Fort Knox has become one of the top in its business due to its innovation. With the 5:1 Gear ratio they have taken it one step further. Every Vault Door now comes with this feature. It allows for the handle to be spun multiple times to open the door instead of a ¼ turn like most doors. It creates a much smoother experience. This door also has a clutch system that prevents damage to the door when undue or excessive force is applied on the handle. This means that if someone tries to force your door open, it will not be permanently damaged.
Hinge Type: Every Fort Knox Vault Door comes with internal hinges. It can also be switched to an external hinge with hinge caps at no additional cost (hinge caps are an upgraded option on the Maverick). The Executive Vault Doors are also compatible with the 2S Crane Hinge. This allows the door to pull completely away from the frame. See the video below to see it as an example on one of their vaults.
Bolt Detent: This feature is often overlooked, but very
important. The Bolt Detent keeps the bolts from extending when the door
is open, so that when closing the door, the bolts do not hit the safe
and damage the paint, or the bolts. This comes on every Fort Knox Vault
except for the Maverick series.
Relocker: All Fort Knox Vaults (Not Maverick) come with the Fort Knox Triple Re-locker System. The re-locker system is meant to drop in position and keep the door closed if someone attempts to cut out the lock. This is just one more step that Fort Knox takes to keep your valuables safe.
Locking Bolts: The Executive (Outswing) series of Fort Knox Vault Doors come standard with 24 1.75" locking bolts, this includes the 4 patented star corner bolts. The in-swing models are not compatable with Star Corner bolts and will come with 20 1.75" locking bolts.
Door Swing: Every Fort Knox Vault Door comes standard with a right side hinge, however Fort Knox allows for the option to move the hinge to the left side.
Stainless Steel Liner: The stainless steel liner is much like the inner steel liner, where it creates a door within a door when added. The different between the two, is that this form of Stainless Steel dissipates heat throughout the metal, which makes it much more difficult to use tools, or cutting torches on. If a thief is able to get through the outer layer of the door, they will be very hard pressed to get through this 10 gauge stainless steel, even if they brought the right tools. This liner will be in the door itself and will not be in the frame unless a custom quote is created for this.
ArmaKnox Bullet Proof Steel Liner Option: This option is for those who have everything. This adds a liner of steel, much like the Inner Steel Liner, to the interior of the door. The difference with this option is that it is a 7-Gauge ArmaKnox AR 500 that is rated to be bullet proof with 3 shots of a .44 magnum Pistol. This liner will be in the door itself and will not be in the frame unless a custom quote is created for this.
Easy Glide Ball Bearing Hinges: Every Fort Knox safe
comes with Easy Glide Ball Bearing Hinges, which make opening your safe a
breeze. These are adjustable and tamper proof. Internal hinges allow
for the door to be opened 100 degrees, and the external allow for a full
Relocker: All Fort Knox Vaults (Not Maverick) come with
the Fort Knox Triple Re-locker System. The re-locker system is meant to
drop in position and keep the door closed if someone attempts to cut
out the lock. This is just one more step that Fort Knox takes to keep
your valuables safe.
Star Corner Bolts: Star Corner bolts work with the standard bolts to add even more protection to your door. The number one place a thief will go to pry open a door is going to be the corners. On most doors, this is the easiest place to get play. With the patented hardened star corner bolts, this now becomes one of the hardest places, and will make the thief spend much more time on a vault door, only to give up and try somewhere else. Star Corner Bolts are available only on the Executive External Hinge versions of the vault doors.
