Hayman Safe Company developed the Ozark series of gun storage safes because high-quality and durable firearms storage can represent a significant investment for gun owners, and discerning gun owners do not want to spend good money on lower-tier, box store safes yet may struggle to justify a large premium safe.

The Ozark series are built to Hayman Safe’s uncompromising material and construction standards to deliver premium protection from forced entry and fire but at an affordable, entry-level price point. These safes are sized for easy repositioning and relocation and are offered in two sizes and interior configurations. Both feature a 3/16-inch steel plate door with a 1-inch total door thickness. The safe’s body is 1 inch thick and is made from premium 14-gauge black powder coated steel. Fire protection is rated for 30 minutes of content protection at 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit.

Entry security comes courtesy of a three-way active bolt work that includes eight, 1-inch locking bolts to maximize resistance to forced entry, while a three-spoke chrome handle allows for smooth-locking bolt operation. Both safes use a programmable digital lock system with a relocker in the event the lock is attacked. A hardplate is also added to further protect the lock and relocker from a direct assault.

Ozark safes offer ample storage inside for long guns, handguns and other essentials. The smaller model can accommodate up to 11 long guns in the vertical rack position while the larger model can fit up to 20 long guns. Each model comes with its own shelving configuration and a back-of-door pocket organizer that can secure handguns, magazines or other smaller items.
