There are a lot of gun safes available in the market today. Even the local town carpenter might boast of selling gun safes as the consumer need for them has risen considerably.
But very few companies take the time out to carry out the research and development required for a safety item of the key importance of a gun safe, and Steelwater happens to be one of them.
And if you compare the gun safes out there in the market, Steelwater turns out to be the most robust when it comes to possible burglar attacks and fire-resistance.
We know that words alone will not convince you, and they shouldn’t. And if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth a ten thousand.
Therefore, we have uploaded a set of videos where we test a gun safe from our company with a series of brutal tests that test its durability under different conditions. We completely batter the safe, starting from punching it, to breaking its hinges, to trying to pry it open.
We then move on to attacking it with an axe, and you’ll see for yourself that all this time, we only managed to just chip away the surface of the safe. We try to pry open the safe again, this time with a team of us trying, and still to no avail despite the box having suffered a lot.
For the ultimate test, we drop the safe from a height of over twenty feet, and again, video being your witness, you’ll find that it was still not manageable for us to pry the safe open.
Our safes have also been lab-tested to check their resistance to heat and fire. We have given you the fire-resistance stats below in the individual product description, and you’ll find that our safes can withstand very hot fires for a long duration.

Also, while many other companies come out with different model names and numbers every year, these often turn out to be the same old versions, but just marketed under different names and thus priced higher.

Steelwater 20 Gun Safe Review 2018 two varieties: The “Steelwater Standard Duty-EGS5922” and the “Steelwater Heavy Duty-SW592216.”

The Steelwater Standard Duty–EGS5922 model comes equipped with an EMP-protected digital lock or a mechanical one, depending upon your choice. The EMP-protection makes the safe resistant to harmful ionizing radiation.
Both the digital and mechanical locks have their own pros and cons, and neither one can be said to be a hundred-percent better than the other. We therefore leave the decision upon you the customer when it comes to figuring out which lock would be safer for your needs.
