The Maverick is Fort Knox’ entry level, most economically priced safe that they offer. Just because the Maverick has a great price tag, doesn’t mean that it lacks in construction or functionality. This safe comes in a variety of 6 different size and capacity options allowing you to pick out the perfect size for you application. The smallest of the Maverick lineup provides 8 cu. Ft. of storage space perfect for storing just a couple long-guns. The largest of the series is a 41 cu. Ft. model that provides storage for up to 57 long-guns. The interior of the Maverick is completely customizable and provides 8 different layout configurations to fit your specific needs! That is such a rare option on most brands entry-level designs.
The fire protection rating is slightly lower than all of the other models from Fort Knox but is still substantially higher than any brands entry-level safes. The Maverick provides 45 minutes of fire protection at 1200°F through the use of UL listed fireboard in all 6 sides of the safe. Also included are two different types of door seals, the first is a basic seal that will protect your valuables from smoke damage until the second seal becomes activated. The second seal is a Palusol heat-expanding seal that grows 7 times its size to protect your valuables from being damaged by smoke and heat.
The security features that come standard in the Maverick safe are the reinforced fire door, quadrafold door frame, concealed ball bearing hinges, folded door and an 11 gauge steel unibody construction. If you’re wanting more than just the standard, the Maverick has completely customizable security options including a ballistic metal upgrade, corner bolts, stainless steel reinforcement, thicker body and an inner steel liner. Ft Knox believes that even entry-level safes should still provide a high level of protection and keep intruders from accessing your goods. They even urge you to compare the Maverick to other manufacturers high-end safes. Do not dismiss this just because it is labeled as entry level.
The Maverick comes in a variety of different color, textures, and finish options to make your safe unique. With nearly unlimited exterior, interior, and hardware color combinations. I find this to be the best part in picking out a safe from Fort Knox. In addition to the awesome color choice, the Maverick is compatible with several awesome accessory options including a fluorescent lighting package, an electronic keypad lock, door rack, dehumidifier and more!
The Maverick comes with the Fort Knox comprehensive lifetime warranty that covers your safe from manufacturers defects, flood damage and fire damage. It also includes the lock, unlike most manufacturers. Fort Knox will replace or repair your safe for free. You’ll be hard pressed to find a warranty that is this good.
REINFORCED FIRE DOOR
Our Reinforced Fire Door adds to layers of fire protection to the 3/8" or 1/4" solid steel plate, then it reinforces the door with additional 10-gauge steel for added security (three to four times more steel than other composite type doors). We have found a way to improve on the Reinforced Fire Door. This new folded door adds more steel to the door edge while giving us a cleaner looking edge.
Fort Knox offers a thick durable Zolatone paint finish for those safes that will be placed in garages, shops or storage rooms. This finish is harder to scratch and comes in four great colors.
75 MIN FIRE PROTECTION
We use UL Listed, fireboard insulation on all 6 sides and insulate behind the hinges to avoid any hot pockets. A high temperature, heat sensitive expanding fire seal expands to seal the safe around the entire door. Locked, sealed and ready to bock the worst that flames have to offer.
