Colorado Wildfires Drive Fire Protection to the Forefront

Written by: Jean van Oppen

This last December, Colorado residents were reminded of how quickly one can lose its family heirlooms that are irreplaceable. The fire that swept through Boulder County burned almost 1,000 homes and caused 35,000 residents to be evacuated. Hundreds of Coloradoans lost items that were invaluable and are now simply memories. As our state rebuilds from this tragedy, fire safety and protection will move to the forefront.

When it comes to protecting what matters most, a vault room is the ideal solution. Homeowners have the ability to design a space that is large enough to protect all of their valuables and protect it from fire. With a Fort Knox Vault Door, the owner has a variety of options to customize the entrance. The doors can swing in or out, swing left or right and different sizes. There is a range of options when it comes to color and texture. This allows the door to not be an eye sore but instead compliment the room. Every Fort Knox Vault Door comes with an inside release handle. This means the vault room can also be used as a shelter to protect themselves from an outside threat.

The most common vault room is built in the basement so that it has concrete walls, floor and ceiling. By securing all sides with concrete, the room is protected from any fire danger that may arise. The installation of the Fort Knox Vault Door is designed to be straightforward. The doors have a frame that bolts together and clamps tightly to the wall. Therefore you do not have to drill into concrete to set the door.
