Gun Safe Quality, Security and Flexibility for Responsible Firearm Owners

The right to own and carry firearms is a time-honored tradition considered, by many, to be an important part of our heritage.

Responsible gun owners take this tradition very seriously. As lawful gun owners, they take pride in their prudent use of firearms for legitimate purposes. Likewise, they take enormous pride in the firearms themselves–firearms that often represent one-of-a-kind investments.

Whether you’re a hunter, sportsman or hobbyist, owning a firearm, using it safely and handling it wisely go hand-in-hand. Securing and protecting your collection against damage, unauthorized use, theft and possible accidents is a vital part of this responsibility. It’s the pride component in pride of ownership.

SentrySafe understands the unique safety and security issues that conscientious firearm owners face on a daily basis. Our extensive family of gun safes and cabinets — available in various sizes and capacities — accommodate individual storage needs with a host of standard and trade-up features that can include fire protection, dual locking systems (combination/electronic), high quality live/dead bolt provisions and configurable inferior shelving alternatives.

Protect Your Stuff From Fire! Sentry Gets Put To The Test!

People are buying safes to protect there property and money in these tough economic times.

ABC News set 2 home safes on fire, A Sentry Safe HD4100 and a competitor model.

They locked up the same items in both safes.

  • A Thumb Drive
  • A CD and DVD
  • Paper Work
  • Money

Members from the phoenix fire department were on stand by for safety reasons.

Wooden pallets were setup to mimic a house fire.

Both boxes were burned for 10 minuets @ 1500 degrees, typical for a house fire.

When the competitor’s model was opened only ashes remained, the Money, DVD, and paperwork were gone!

As for the Sentry Safe, The concrete was pealed off and the safe appeared to seal it self shut during the fire. Fire fighters peeled it opened to find the paper’s money, DVD and thumb drive in tact. It doesn’t even look like the fire touched the items. Nothing is damaged or wet from the fire.

SentrySafe employees LIVE UNITED for local United Way

For decades SentrySafe has supported its local United Way’s annual campaign. Jim Brush, CEO of SentrySafe, has been a longtime United Way board member and this year is leading the campaign. As Campaign Chair, Brush has donated his time and resources to helping the United Way meet its 2009 fundraising goals.

“Given the economic challenges facing our community today, I am encouraging our SentrySafe employees to consider joining the thousands of others who have chosen to support the United Way,” said Brush. “SentrySafe has been dedicated to the United Way of Greater Rochester for many years as we ask our company to not only support the non-profit financially, but to advocate among donors and to volunteer more.”

On March 13, 2009, SentrySafe kicked-off its annual United Way fundraising campaign. This year, SentrySafe hopes to raise $178,000 for the United Way’s 2009 LIVE UNITED campaign. While SentrySafe acknowledges that fundraising this year may be difficult, the company has created fun and engaging opportunities for employees to support the organization beyond monetary results. Some include a company-wide auction with items such as refurbished laptops, desktops, printers, safes, and golf items, along with a great deal of other products, a 50/50 raffle and a Day of Caring. The Day of Caring provides an opportunity for teambuilding as employees donate their time to work on a community project together. The owners also are once again providing incentives for employees to donate by matching any increase in gifts from its employees, by establishing prizes for returning pledge forms early and by offering a day off for first-time gifts of $500 or more.

The United Way of Greater Rochester is just one of the many community non-profit organizations SentrySafe supports. Over the years, the United Way has focused on a prevention as well as intervention model, funding programs that assist those currently affected as well as those that attack root causes—and will spare others future suffering. The
United Way supports solutions that go beyond a quick fix and offer people the opportunity to rebuild and change their lives. SentrySafe is proud to support such a world class agency with a long legacy of success. Together, when SentrySafe, its employees and the community LIVE UNITED, a real difference will be made.
