What do you need to know when buying a vault door?

Updated: Apr 12

When purchasing a bank vault door, there are several key factors to consider:

  1. Firmness: Ensure that the vault door meets the required standards for protection against tools such as hammers, drills, and flame-cutting guns. Choose a protection level (e.g., 30 minutes, 60 minutes, 120 minutes) based on the value of the items being stored.

  2. Size: Consider the size of the items that will be stored in the vault and whether specialized equipment like trailers or forklifts will be needed for transportation. Plan the size of the vault door accordingly.

  3. Lock: Select the type and quantity of locks based on the number of users and security requirements. Understand the characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages of different lock types.

  4. Appearance: Choose the finish of the vault door (e.g., painted, stainless steel) based on the intended use environment and personal preferences.

  5. Transportation: Vault doors are heavy, so ensure that appropriate mechanical equipment like forklifts and cranes are available for safe transportation.

  6. Installation: Follow the installation process carefully and ensure that workers adhere to safety protocols during installation.

  7. Maintenance: Regular maintenance is crucial for the longevity and effectiveness of the bank vault door. Schedule inspections every six months to check the operation of each component and lubricate moving parts as necessary.
