According to the current legislation of Ukraine, weapons must be stored in special metal safes. The law applies to legal entities and individuals, although for enterprises, organizations, companies, law enforcement agencies, the requirements for a gun safe are more stringent. This applies to all types of weapons, in particular gas, traumatic, rifled, smooth-bore weapons.
For storing long-barreled weapons (hunting double-barrels, carbines, rifles), long metal cabinets are used, and small safes for pistols, which are made of durable steel, are used in a weapon safe. Before buying a cabinet, pay attention to the basic requirements for their quality and design.
Features of weapon safes
Structurally, the cabinets consist of a main compartment, but for the safe and practical storage of weapons, ammunition, it is recommended to have an additional compartment - a traiser. Tray capacity may vary. In order to securely fix the shotguns in an upright position, the cabinets are equipped with clamp-type cradles. Some models have removable shelves that increase the functionality of the structure.
Characteristics of weapon cabinets
Main technical and operational parameters of weapon safes:
Burglar resistance class. The level of burglary resistance is regulated by GOST R 50862-2005, there are 5 classes of burglary resistance from H0 to V (V is the most secure design).
Capacity, dimensions. The dimensions of the model depend on the type of weapon stored. Experts recommend taking a wardrobe with a margin. In the presence of optics, the recommended construction depth is at least 350 mm.
Type of locking devices. Electronic, mechanical, combined. The minimum number of locks is 2 or more.
Additional bays for ammunition. They can be executed in the form of separate sections under the lock.
An equally important characteristic is the thickness of the walls, because the thicker the metal, the higher the protection. To strengthen the front part (door), material up to 5 mm thick is used. Reliable cabinets are made of metal with a wall thickness of at least 3 mm, inexpensive models - with a thickness of 1-2 mm.
Choosing a safe for weapons
The order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs indicates special requirements for the storage of a gun by legal entities, law enforcement officers. In this case, the wall thickness of the safe must be at least 3 mm. Civilians can store weapons in any special metal locker, regardless of the thickness of the metal, the level of protection of the lock, etc. The lack of clear requirements allows you to choose a safe, relying on financial capabilities and individual preferences. However, among the owners, the most popular cabinets for weapons with a door thickness of at least 2 mm and side walls from 1.5 mm.
Also, the legislation does not oblige citizens to additionally attach the safe to the wall or floor. But for safety reasons, it is worth fixing the metal cabinet with anchor bolts. This prevents theft of lightweight structures and ensures that the tall, narrow model is 100% stable in the event of an accidental impact.
One of the most important points when choosing a safe is fire resistance. It takes into account the possible risks of a fire, in which an explosion of stored ammunition can occur, as well as the risk of spontaneous explosion of cartridges. The walls of these cabinets are made of extra strong and fire-resistant steels.
