The Guardian makes nearly all of the features found in higher tier vaults affordable!

With nearly all the features found on the Titan included in the Guardian, you get the same high quality security at a much more affordable price.

Cranking up the heat to 1680°, the Fort Knox Guardian is certified for 90 minutes of inferno fire protection. This is accomplished with the 1-3/4" reinforced fire door consisting of a 3/8" steel plate, 2 layers of C-rated fire board and 10 gauge steel inner reinforcement. Add in the heat activated Palusol dual thermal door seal and your vault will be locked, sealed and ready to block the worst that flames have to offer.

When it comes to security, the Guardian is UL listed due to its 7 gauge, uni-body construction, remote relocker system, drill deflector bolt guard and patented multi-gear drive, 5 to 1 reduction rack & pinion locking mechanism with up to 55 rack and pinion machined gears. Combine all of that security with (20) 1.5" active solid steel locking bolts strategically placed at the sides, top, corners and bottom of the door and you have a vault that is extremely difficult to get into, even when you know what you're doing. Unique to Fort Knox is the Star Corner Bolts that adds significant pry resistance and adds the "cool" factor to this vault.

On the door itself lies a S&G Group II manipulation resistant lock, spy-proof & key lock dial protected by a drill stop hard plate with recessed multi-bearings. After you dial in the correct combination, you'll turn the 5 spoke clutch drive handle available in gold, chrome or black chrome and see the beautiful two tone interior. On the back of the door lies a very handy door panel organizer that will allow you to keep your smaller items like pistols, passports, magazines available and organized. All sides of the safe consist of velcro compatible carpeting for additional storage room.

In terms of functionality, the internal power supply system will allow you to plug in your dehumidifier and other various electronics. While the door is open the bolt detent system will keep the bolts secured inside the door until the door is securely closed.

Fort Knox believes in and stands behind the quality and workmanship of the Guardian series by offering a comprehensive lifetime factory warranty.
