Ammunition Safes From Champion Safe Co.
Are you searching for an ammo safe? Well, look no further than Champion Safe Co. Much more than an “ammo can,” Champion ammunition safes provide real fire and burglary protection for your ammunition and gear; and asking a gun enthusiast to buy another gun safe just for his ammo is like asking a cigar lover to buy a humidor to keep his matches dry. Buying a Champion Ammunition Safe keeps your investments from going up in flames. This isn’t just an expensive “ammo can” to hold your gear, but a necessary way to practice smart strategies when it comes to your passion. Give us a call if you have any questions about our safes.
There’s no question that you want to keep your ammunition safe from natural disasters and accidents of all kinds. Exposure to extremely high temperatures during a fire (or even prolonged heat exposure) can cause the ammo to rupture in its casing which then causes it to spark and send small pieces flying through the air. However, it’s not the violent exploding burst you may see in Hollywood movies. Many of the components of the ammunition, like the case and the bullets, will stay stable during a large fire. It’s the chemical properties between the gunpowder and the priming mixture which cause the problems. Extreme humidity also creates corrosion of the brass casing and warps the case which leads to friction that can wind up weakening or displacing the cartridge in the chamber. An ammunition safe is really the best way to keep your ammo protected from the elements. When properly cared for, your ammunition should last for up to 10 years.
Ammunition Safe Fire Protection
To defend your investment, there’s Champion Safe Co. Our innovative gun safe design incorporates the elements of the most advanced safes out there. We use a high percentage of gypsum which activates water vapor at 262°F, and acts as a cooling agent for your ammo, guns and other valuables. We make the safe door from thickest steel available, so the damage of the fire stays on the outside. Our door seals work to keep the heat out by expanding and creating a barrier against the heat and humidity. Our ammo safes are tested under the most realistic scenarios, so you know they can handle the heat. Even if your ammunition safe was in a remote area, it would be extremely unlikely that a firefighter would be in danger from an ammunition safe surrounded by flames. Pyrotechnics expert Steve Wolf, who has over two decades’ experience, has observed just how safe burning ammunition is for those who are properly outfitted with safety gear.
Tips for Ammunition Safe Storage
Humidity can damage ammunition, so if your basement shows signs of humidity, it may not be the best place for your ammo safe. If that’s really the only realistic storage area, you can actually add a dehumidifier to the safe to ensure the ammunition stays intact. It is also not advised to put your ammo in the trunk of the car as the heat can get pretty intense in an enclosed area of a car. Champion Safe Co. doesn’t just protect you against heat and humidity: you’re saving your ammo from thieves who may want to use your own property against you.
