Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What storage conditions are ideal?
Your safe is best stored in a cool, dry location. If you’re planning to store your gun safe in an area with fluctuating humidity or temperatures, you may want to use a dehumidifier to ensure your safe doesn’t absorb any moisture from the air, which can cause rust.
Is my safe fireproof?
Although there is no such thing as a fireproof gun safe, Champion’s gun safes are fire resistant, providing protection to the items inside for a certain period of time during fire exposure. While your safe is unlikely to survive a days-long blaze, it should be able to protect your guns through a relatively routine house fire that is extinguished quickly.
Will my safe shield electronics from damage during a fire?
Your fire-resistant Champion Safe can keep its internal temperatures below 350 degrees Fahrenheit, even during a fire–however, temperatures above 125 degrees Fahrenheit is hot enough to damage most electronics items, like CDs, hard drives, flash drives, and laptop computers.
How long will my electronic lock’s battery last?
If your new safe has an electronic lock, you may find yourself wondering how long your battery will last. Under normal conditions (that is, accessing your safe an average of twice per day), you should expect to get at least a year of use out of your electronic lock. You’ll be alerted as soon as the battery begins to run low, and can change the battery at your earliest convenience (preferably with the safe door open).
