Hayman Rockies safes are the highest-tier product in their lineup now. [Hayman]

Hayman Safe Co. has launched a new lineup of heavy-duty gun safes in four different sizes. The new Hayman Rockies safes enter the lineup as the company’s premium offerings, loaded with desirable features to keep your firearms safe and secure.

Gun Safes @ TFB:

The four safes in the new series are made to hold 16, 22, 34 or 45 long guns. All safes include an organizer on the inside of the door for storage of handguns, ammo or accessories. They also come with adjustable, flexible gun racks and shelves to help you organize your belongings. The interiors are fabric-lined; a 110V and USB outlet lets you power electronic gadgetry inside the safe. LED lights will automatically turn on when you open the door, to illuminate the interior. A silver/gray powder coated finish protects the safe’s exterior from corrosion.

Auto-relocking is standard; if tampered with, the lock will automatically re-lock itself. The safe’s bolt handle and the door pull handle are both constructed of titanium for a premium feel as well as long-term durability.

All that steel comes with a weight penalty; the largest safe in the lineup weighs 1510 pounds. [Hayman]
The bodies of the Hayman Rockies safes are constructed from beefy steel. The walls are 3/16-inch thick, and the doors are 1/2-inch thick, with a drill-resistant reinforcing plate protecting the lock/relocker mechanism and strong hinges to resist break-ins. The three-way locking bolts are 1 1/2 inches thick, with 10 locking bolts on the two smaller safes and 12 locking bolts on the two larger safes. Hayman is so confident in the security of their safes that they offer a lifetime burglary guarantee (a one-year parts/labor warranty is also standard).

All the Rockies safes are pre-drilled for easy securing to floors or walls. Their weight ranges from 610 pounds for the smallest safe to 1510 pounds for the largest safe. That’s an important consideration, if you’re going to be installing one of these in your house—make sure your floors are good for it.

The new Rockies safes carry the US RSC label and are rated for 120 minutes of fire protection. That’s a half-hour longer than their mid-range Black Hills models (which are rated for only 90 minutes).

You’d expect to pay big bucks for this level of protection… and you’d be right. The 16-gun safe has a $3,130 MSRP. The 22-gun safe has a $5,700 MSRP. The 34-gun safe has a $5,900 MSRP, and the 45-gun safe has a sky-high $6,900 MSRP. But if you’ve got guns that are worth protecting, you may not even worry about the price tag?

Hayman Rockies safes are made in Florida; for more details, see their website here.

    " The walls are 3/16-inch thick, and the doors are 1/2-inch thick"

    That's an actual safe instead of a dinky security cabinet full of drywall filler

    Unimpressed, especially given the asking prices

    They mention 1/2" thick steel plate door but do not specifically say that the plate itself (ie..the outer skin on the door) is 1/2" thick or the whole door is 1/2" thick. The front plate is probably much less. A steel plate can still be called a "plate" even if its as thin as a soda can. Sounds impressive though doesn't it?

    Details on safe design and build specs from this companies website are basically non existent. Lousy pictures with no details or close ups. Another red flag! Just your standard boiler plate dimensions and weight numbers basically.

    1. I want to know the thickness of all steel panels inside and out..including fireproofing at each dimension (Top/Bottom/Sides & Door)
    2. I want to know the details of the fireproofing material used between the steel skins
    3. I want to know where the steel was sourced from, who put it all together and who inspected the final product
    4. I want to know who tested the advertised Fire Rating and was it certified by them
    5. And the list goes on........

    The weight to size ratio of a safe will tell the tale alone. Steel is heavy..assuming you are using enough of it. Big boxes should be heavy if they are using a decent amount of steel within them.

    A Fire-Ax swung with bad intentions would likely make a dogs breakfast out of these in a hurry.

    I can only speculate that we are looking at Chi Steel skins filled with drywall to make it look usual. I'll withhold calling out the usual suspect brands who follow the same design model asking for top dollar to prevent hurting feelings.

    Sorry but I need to call BS when I see it. So much crap out there floating around for unexplainable prices.

    Good safes aren't that much more and they will publicly list all the details of all the example questions I posted above, at minimum.

    These safe companies need to do better on the details of their product. Without proper details one is left with speculation and that can lead to people looking elsewhere....even if their speculations are wrong on a given product!
