Mid-Range Security with Safe Security Level 3
Liberty’s Level 3 security safes build on the security features of our Level 2 with several important upgrades. Our Level 3 security safes, like the Colonial and Fatboy 48 are:
Built with with a 1-inch composite door
California DOJ Approved
Constructed with 1/4-inch thick steel locking bars
Made with 11-gauge steel
Made with a triple hardplate lock guard
Protected by an X-Cam locking mechanism
UL-Listed as a UL 8M10 Residential Security Container (RSC)
Protect your home and family with a secure safe.
Level 3 Security safes have received certifications from both the California DOJ and Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for their security features. To carry the esteemed UL-Listed seal, Liberty Safes must go through intensive testing. Following successful testing, they are awarded UL’s 8M10 Residential Security Container (RSC) certification.
Thicker Steel than Level 1-2 Security
A rule of thumb is to purchase a gun safe that has the thickest steel as possible. But the thicker the steel, the more expensive a safe will be. Level 3 safes feature 11-gauge steel that is 0.1196 inch (3.038mm) thick. That is 14% thicker than the 12-gauge steel used in Level 2 Security safes. Thicker steel is more difficult to drill or punch. It is also heavier, which makes it more difficult to remove. A square foot of 11-gauge steel weighs 4.879 pounds, which is over half a pound heavier per square foot than 12-gauge steel.
X-Cam Locking Mechanism
Your gun safe’s type of locking mechanism matters. In a brute force or manipulation attack, your locking mechanism needs to be able to withstand a sustained attack. Level 3 Security safes feature upgraded X-cam locking mechanisms that are more secure than the direct-cam mechanism used in Liberty Security Level 2 safes.
More Locking Bars
Level 3 Security safes feature Liberty’s innovative 1/4-inch thick military-style locking bars. The Colonial gun safe has up to 10 locking bars. Meanwhile, the Fatboy Jr. has 8 locking bars spread around its door’s four sides.
Triple Hardplate for Increased Security
Hardplate steel is specially heat-treated to create a harder surface. Liberty uses triple layered hardplate to protect Level 3 Security safes from drill and punch attacks on its locking mechanisms. Why use triple layers of hardplate? Because it chews up and shakes drill bits to prevent a burglar from drilling completely through.
Liberty Safes offer both burglar and fire protection, which is something not all safes from other manufacturers provide. Liberty Safe makes added security affordable.
