The SF6036E5 Gun Safe by AMSEC is an excellent value providing solid security and over 20 cu.ft. of secure storage. While may have room inside the home, this safe is most often a garage safe due to its size. Garage safes are best placed in a location not visible from the street or covered safe with a Safe Cloak.
We like the SF6036E5 for the extra steel in the door. Doors are the most frequently attacked part of the safe so AMSEC has beefed up the doors of all their gun safes for your protection. The SF Series has a 3/16”-thick steel plate door, as compared to most safes in this class that have a 12-gauge door. For comparison sake it helps to know that 3/16” is equivalent to 7-gauge, the smaller number gauge represents thicker steel.
The SF6036E5 comes standard with AMSEC’s UL Listed E5 electronic lock. Digital locks have become by far the most popular safe locks due to their ease of use and convenience. You set your own combination and can change it at any time. This lock is back lit making it easy to use in the dark as well. The U.L. listing is very important; this internationally recognized independent testing agency has given their stamp of approval confirming the high security this lock provides. Any lock with a backup key will not meet this criterion due to the additional point of vulnerability. The E5 lock is powered by a single 9-volt battery located in the keypad of the safe for easy replacement when the safe door is closed. Battery life is typically one year but varies based on use.
Fire protection is another strong point of the SF6036E55. This safe is certified by ETL-Intertek for 60-minutes of fire protection. These days most of us live in near a fire station such that 60 minutes is adequate protection. When comparing safes based on fire protection be sure to look for independent verification of the ratings. Many safe manufacturers don’t get their safes independently tested leaving actual performance in question. Don’t take the manufacturer’s word for it, look for independent confirmation.
