First Look: Steelhead Outdoors Nomad 32 Modular Gun Safe

posted on March 28, 2021

Steelhead Outdoors added a new product to its growing Nomad modular gun safe line. The new Nomad 32 provides hunters, shooters and firearm collectors with a mid-size choice in between its Nomad 26 and Nomad 38 models. The model numbers correspond with the gun safes’ exterior width. All Steelhead Outdoors Nomad modular safes feature American-made quality and precision engineered versatility. Nomad safes can be ordered with either a dial mechanical lock or a push button digital lock.

Steelhead Outdoors modular gun safes are easily moved and assembled by two people. Traditional safes require hiring a specialized safe moving company, which is costly, or enlisting buddies on a dangerous DIY adventure each time the homeowner moves. Additionally, the patent-pending construction features a fully dry insulation system, eliminating the need for a dehumidifier.

This system utilizes a radiant heat reflecting coating to reject incoming heat from entering the safe. The metal interior provides additional protection and is made from nearly 100 percent non-flammable materials. The panels are filled with ceramic fire insulation that is rated to 2,300 degrees and is non-moisture trapping so it does not require the use of a dehumidifier and will not release steam into the safe in the event of a fire.

“We put a tremendously high value on customer feedback, and a few people have commented to us that they wanted a safe somewhere between the sizes we were offering. We listened and the Nomad 32 is a direct result of the feedback loop with our current and prospective customers. The Nomad 26 is a great safe for small spaces and its short height allows it to slide into almost any closet, but that same short height can pose an issue with specialty shotguns or other unique firearms. The Nomad 32 features the same 60-inch height as the Nomad 38, and the width and depth are exactly halfway between the sizes of the 26 and the 38.” 

Steelhead Outdoors Nomad Series of premium modular gun safes are designed and constructed to allow for flexibility and mobility without sacrificing safety or durability. Shooters, hunters and gun collectors will appreciate their smart design decisions, such as double wall construction with 12-gauge welded, powder coated exterior panels and 20-gauge interior panel and 7-gauge (3/16-inch) plate door. The patent-pending construction of the Nomad line features dual stage fire protection as well as 2300 deg insulation and radiation-reflecting panels contains no trapped moisture and eliminates corrosion concerns with traditional gun safe fire insulation.

You can either select a Nomad model or work with the Steelhead Outdoors engineers to create a custom gun safe. Custom-built Steelhead Outdoors modular safes can fit any space in the home and are available in a multitude of colors. For more information, please visit
