Custom Sized Vault Doors | Instant Pricing | Sturdy Vaults

  • $ 2,590.00
Shipping and tax included! 1-6 weeks till completion.

Info


Now all vault doors come standard with 3/8" thick plates with 8x12" Stainless Upgrades and go thicker from there depending on the package you pick.
Weights vary based on size and options. Please call us for these details.
Wait times are 6 weeks till completion, and transit is 2-10 business days.
If the rough opening measures over 80" in height, we do not enlarge the door, but the top of the frame. During transit, these vaults lay down with the height of the vault now being the width direction on a pallet. Most freight trucks have a hard time unloading objects over 84" wide with their lift gates, so means to take the vault off the trucks maybe necessary.
If you are going for an alternative size than what is listed here, please contact us.

 

Features

3" Deep Doors Made With Thick Plate

Sturdy Safe doors won't flex since we make them with 3/8" to 9/16" See package tab for more details. The inside door frame is mostly made of 3/16" plate. >Read More

Unbendable/Undamageable Supported Deadbolts

Sturdy's 8" long, 7/8" solid bar active deadbolts are supported on each end and welded on. This means no matter how hard one tries to pry, or slams the door with the deadbolts sticking out, they will not deviate from their original trajectory and remain operational. >Read More

Lifetime Warranty

This no nonsense warranty covers fire, malfunctioning, and burglary. When it comes to fire and malfunction, we also cover shipping both ways and locksmith entry. Extra warranties available. >Read More

1/2" Hot Welds

Sturdy welds are laid on thick and hot for more penetration and strength. Most safes use cold welding to minimize cosmetic problems. The bodies are continuously welded. >Read More

3 Shelves In The Door Of Non Fire Lined Vaults

Who needs a weak door organizer when you have sturdy 10g shelving in the door? Only available in non fire lined vaults. >Read More


Dark Gray And Black Paint

Sturdy Safe's semi gloss paint is laid on thick and is twice as durable as auto motive finishes. It's also easy to touch up with little notice. >Read More


Hardened Hardplate

Our drill punch resistant Hardplate is hardened to the extreme by another facility, and then free floating instead of welded on to not degrade its strength. It's backed by our relocker for additional security from drill entries. >Read More


Patented Pressure Activated Relocker

Our Relocker is not sensitive glass or spring. It's pressure activated so it will only fire when someone is putting a lot of pressure on it. You can slam the door and never worry about being locked out by accident. Glass or spring Relockers cannot do this. >Read More


Group 2 Model 6730 Combination Lock

Our spin dials are commercial grade quality, key changeable and easy to read black with white numbers. >Read More


Damage Resistant Linkage

Unlike our competitors, Sturdy's linkage is so strong problematic clutches and shear pins are not necessary. These parts are designed to break when force is applied, so you would need to baby their vault or get locked out. >Read More


Combination Deadbolt Reinforcement

We do not want to rely on the strength of a combination box for the needed strength in the lock system, like most manufacturers do. This adds about 16,000 pounds of resistance, which helps make our vaults be the most durable, abusive-resistant vault on the market. >Read More


Commercial Quality / Free Of Servicing

Sturdy's linkage will never need to be serviced, nor will it break, even with years of abuse. We offer a lifetime of linkage warranty coverage to back up this claim. >Read More


Exposed Hinges

Unlike hidden hinges, exposed hinges allow the vault door to be accidentally slammed open without damaging the hinges, as well as being able to open a full 180 degrees. >Read More

Packages

 

What comes standard:

  • 3/8" Door
  • 8x12" Stainless Upgrade

These are the most popular options customers order. It's the perfect package for the customer who wants to stop a high powered tool (ex: grinders, sawsalls) from breaching the vault longer. Comes with a 8x12" Stainless Upgrade that is 3/16" thick, which protects the heart of the lock system from any high power tool attack by covering: the combo box area, hard plate, relock and striker (which is the primary piece of linkage being locked out). Since this plate is on the exterior of the door, it adds to the commercial look of the vault which customers really enjoy and burglars question.

Mounting / General Info

Rough Opening

Make your opening a minimum of 5/8" to 3/4" (total) extra room from side to side and 1/2" extra room from top to bottom. Make it a 1/4" larger than that if you do not have much faith in your cement guy. If you ordered a custom sized vault door from our website for a preexisting opening, we automatically reduce the vault to meet your rough opening dimension. When mounted, and the door open, figure a minimum of 9/16" worth of clearance from the bottom of the door, to the floor, so keep in mind the thickness of your carpet, tile, etc, to determine if you need to create more of a threshold.

What You Need to Purchase

For standard size vault doors, purchase 10 anchors that are 1/2" to 5/8" in diameter and 3-4" in length. Custom sized vaults will have a different amount depending on the size purchased. You will also need to purchase high PSI mortar, shims, sledge hammer, roto hammer drill and wedging blocks.

 

General Mounting Info

If you purchased a Panic Button, make sure it's disengaged (pulled out) while installing. Only engage it when you want to lock yourself inside. You are basically hanging it like any pre-hung door, with the exception that it's too heavy to shift around as easy. It allows total adjustment of the frame to match the hang attitude of the door. There are no flanges, so you can recess the door as far in the opening as your opening depth will allow. Here is a forum where a customer shows how he built his vault room and talks about how he installed his Sturdy Vault.

WARNING!- OUR VAULT DOORS SHOULD NOT BE LEFT OPEN, OR UNLOCKED, WITH CHILDREN UNATTENDED. THIS IS A COMMERCIAL VAULT DOOR AND OUR TOLERANCES ARE VERY TIGHT, WHICH WILL PINCH FINGERS OFF.

 

Read the entire instructions before beginning! Be cautious and use good judgment. These instruction are just an outline and installation of the vaults are recommended to be done by a professional. We will not be liable for death, injury, or damage to property. Put the vault into position as shown here. Be sure to have it laid down on some type of support so the dial and handle does not get damaged.

Once erect, at least one man will need to be on the inside. Position it in the doorway the way you want it. Do not worry about the attitude of the door at this time. Put some marks around the frame on the cement door entry way. Then, you will need a few guys to help open and stabilize the door. The door might drag around the framing when opening at this point, but no worries. You will likely need a pry bar or 2x4 to pry the door up (and out) to a 90 degree angle. To not loose fingers, be cautious of pinch points. As the door swings open, lift and pull the door at the same time, stabilizing the frame.
Once open, the door will need support on the outside corner, to help hold it up and to move frame back into the marked position (remember the marks you put on the cement door way).
This is a bad example picture, but place an anchor stud ONLY in the frames anchor holes near the top and bottom hinge. Now that the frame is secure on one side, there should be a gap on the other side. If the door doesn't match up, hammer the frame in or out, and then wedge it (with wedging blocks) into marked position. Open and close the door, and check the attitude of the door compared to it's steel frame. Carefully close the door. Once closed, determine which direction you should shim the frame (between cement and frame). If the door is fitting well into the frame, both center locking lugs should engage and disengage with perhaps a little bit of clearance. If these conditions are good, skip to the last pictures instructions.
You should be reading this section because the frame may require adjustments with shims. Where you insert the shims will depend on what part of the frame is sticking out. For example, when you shut the door, and the door hits on the top first, and doesn't quite close on the bottom, you would loosen up the top anchor, and slide a 1/8" (or thicker/thinner) shim in between the frame and the wall, and place the shim about an inch away from the upper anchor bolt. Tighten the anchor back up and make sure the frame is fitting good. This may require more tapping with a big hammer and wedging into position. If you have an outswing vault door, adjust the gap in between the frame and door, by removing the square tubing that is located about 4ft up, and in the way of the walk through area. If the door is rubbing on the bottom, loosen the bottom stud, and place a shim all the way across, just below the stud. When you tighten it up, it will drive the frame upward on the open side.
Now that the frame is fitting good, go ahead and fill the gap between the frame and cement wall, which should be about 5/8" to 3/4" with high PSI mortar. Let it cure, then remove the wedges, and fill in the wedge gaps with mortar. Test to see if the door open and closes properly. Finish installing the rest of the anchor studs at this point. If you need anymore tips, please give us a call.

Extras

Fire Liner

The whole door is stuffed with 2.5" of 2300° Ceramic and 1" of Glass Blanket.
Then it's compressed by a 16 gauge inside steel liner. A fire gasket cannot
be added. Click here for information on our fire rating and other detailed information.

PANIC BUTTON

This will allow you to lock yourself inside the vault with the push of a palm button as you would need for a panic room. Pulling the button unlocks. With the push button engaged it is impossible to spin the dial from the outside, thus preventing anyone from locking you inside. If you did not engage the push button and someone was to lock you in by spinning the dial on the outside (which is a very purposeful act) it would require 3 minutes of work and a couple of basic tools to get out.



Twin Lock System- One Spin, One Electronic

Two separate and complete locking systems that force locksmiths to breach two dials instead of just one. Both dials need to be in working condition in order to get in. One dial does not override the other. The first dial is the original spin dial (S&G group 2 model 6730 in black) that comes with the safe and the other dial is the Electronic Lock (S&G D-Drive) This option has additional benefits such as ease of access (by leaving the spin dial in the unlocked position and just using the electronic to get it). The electronic will have a 2 year warranty. Beyond the 2 year period we void the warranty wherever we state we will cover the locksmith entry and replacement dial. However, we will still honor the rest of the warranty.



Twin Lock System- Two Spin Dials

Two separate and complete locking systems that force a locksmith entry to breach two dials instead of just one. Both spin dials need to be in working condition in order to get in, and are S&G group 2 model 6730 (in the easy read black). One dial does not override the other.

D-Drive Electronic Lock

These type 1 electronic dials by S&G have less moving parts and boast a longer lifespan. Fewer parts = less potential to break. Even though they will last longer, we still recommend electronic locks to be used for people who have a hard time seeing the numbers on standard dials, because, like most electronic devices, they are not made to last forever. THIS OPTION DOES AFFECT THE WARRANTY! These are warranted for two years including locksmith entries. Once you are past the two year period, the portion of the warranty where we state we will cover locksmith entries is then voided.



Gold Hardware

Add instant class to your color changed safe by switching the handle, dial and decals to gold. Perfect for those searching for beauty and brawn.

 

Key In Dial

This is not to be used as a quick access into the safe! It's strictly used to lock the use of the dial by anybody who has the combination to prevent entry.These cannot be put on electronic locks.

 

Locksmith Resistant Hard Plate Upgrade

A hard plate comes standard with every Sturdy Safe however, this option is designed to keep locksmiths out. It's a diamond/carbide bit resistant machine tool pin hard plate that is as hard as ball bearings. It protects the primary linkage being locked out all the way to its source. Odds are very high a locksmith would need to destroy the safe to gain access. For this option you would need to believe a burglar is smart enough to know locksmith entries, which has never happened in our whole history. THIS VOIDS A SMALL PART OF THE LIFETIME WARRANTY by requiring the home owner to pay for the locksmith entry, if ever one is needed.

 

 

Extra Lifetime Warranty

To better understand what this warranty will cover, you should know what the standard warranty covers first: We will fix or replace the vault for free if it was burglarized, in a fire (for a fire lined vault), or if the safe is malfunctioning in anyway, shape or form. When it comes to the malfunctioning or fire, we will cover shipping (back and forth) as well as locksmith entries if needed. When it comes to the burglary, you would need to pay for shipping and locksmith entry, unless you get this extra warranty.

Dark Gray and Black Speckle

This is the new color that comes standard. It blends in best for the majority of rooms and garages. This speckled semi gloss enamel color changes look amazing. Because of the speckle it's easy to touch up without noticing and it doesn't shows smudges so cleaning the safe will not be needed as much as solid color changes.
