Safes have changed little in the last 200 years, but Cannon has found two ways to make your gun storage a little better. The first makes the user interface better, while the second makes the safe a little more secure.
Commander 24, 40, & 64
Historically, you’ve had two options in safes: Those whose doors open 180 degrees, or those with a flat front. Opening 180 degrees for wide-open access required mounting the hinges on the face of the safe, which makes them stand out into a room and much less appealing. Flat fronts are much better looking, but it’s hard to access the inner corners.
Cannon’s NextGen Hinges are built flush with the face and sides of the safe but still open 180 degrees. They look modern and give you all the access you need. If you build cabinets around the safe, it needs less than two inches of relief to let the door open all the way.
Along with the new hinges, the edges of the face are all chamfered and the whole thing looks modern and will be stylish for a long time to come.
Military-Grade Locking Plates
Most safes use round bolts that engage around the door frame to keep it secure. The Commander series now has plates instead of round bolts. The plates offer much more surface area and resist prying better than round bolts. There are nine plates that lock around the door.
Accessories & Features
The Commander series comes standard with two 110-volt outlets and two USB outlets. There are fully adjustable shelves and gun slots, too. They’ve also got various stretch pockets and pouches on the door. This is the 40, and it’s got six pistol slots and five pouches. One of the large pouches is big enough for documents and features extra insulation for fire-resistance.
These safes are guaranteed water-tight for 72 hours in 24″ of water. The 24″ exception is because of the power outlet.
The lock can be opened with a finger scan or a keycode, and there is a backup key opening. MSRP for the 40-gun model starts at $1499. Keep an eye on Cannon’s website for these brand new Commander safes.
