In today’s marketplace not all safes are created equal. In the quest for corporate profits, safes have become lighter, their walls thinner. Many safes are now constructed of thin-gauge metal bent to look thick, offering little more security than your old high school locker. These cleverly disguised products may look substantial but can be pried open in only a few minutes.
Even reputable American safe companies are providing cheap, China-built imports with inferior designs, substandard materials and offering low levels of security. You’ll find these inadequate safes offered at big retail stores for less than $1,000. The security offered by cheap, light-weight safes is often merely an illusion, lulling many unsuspecting buyers into a false sense of security.
Remember in the old movies how the bank robbers used dynamite to blast safes open? That’s because those were heavy, tough safes—too tough to break into using conventional tools. Unfortunately, dynamite is no longer needed to enter many of today’s lightweight home safes; all a thief needs is a couple of large screwdrivers.
Champion still builds safes the old-fashioned way—heavy and tough with thick American-made high-strength steel! Our safes are “built up to a standard, not down to a price.” That’s why our safes are the heaviest, strongest, and most secure safes on the market.
The old adage, “You get what you pay for,” never had more meaning when purchasing a safe. Sometimes the cost difference between low quality and excellent isn’t very much – an amount you probably won’t remember a year or two from now. A few dollars more can purchase a higher quality safe offering greater security, satisfaction and lasting value.
