12 Gauge Safe Body Performance
There is virtually no difference when it comes to the amount of time it would take to penetrate high tensile 10 gauge and 12 gauge. As you can see from the picture above, it only takes one blow of the fire axe to pop a hole in it this large.
This is a 10 gauge safe pictured laying down on the left. According to the owner, the robbers started at the bottom of the safe and cut the frame. Then they pried the lip out past the bolts in the door. They used a saw to cut the lip at each point till they needed to pry past the bolts to open it.
Attempted break-in! Perpetrators failed. Worked on a Sturdy Safe with a cut off wheel and grinder for 20 minutes and still couldn’t get in. Went only for the side of the safe made of 3/16” steel (shown here) and didn’t touch the door. They gave up and left 2 minutes before the cops showed up.
