Safes with Level 5 security features have many of the great qualities Level 4 safes have. Liberty Safe improves upon those features with thicker military-style bars and improved hardplate lock guards. A great example of a Level 5 Security safe is Liberty’s Lincoln Series of home gun safes.

Strong Steel Construction

Level 5 safes feature 11-gauge steel construction. This strong steel outweighs 12-gauge by almost a half pound per square foot. You get a heavy safe that is strong enough to resist drilling attempts from burglars.

Meets UL-Listed Requirements for RSC

The UL certification for 8M10 Residential Security Containers (RSC) is the industry standard for home gun safes. You can be certain that your Level 5 gun safe has earned its certification through intensive testing when you see the UL Seal of Approval on the inside of your safe’s door.

What is a Tough Door?

Security Level 5 safes include Liberty’s 1-inch Tough Doors. These doors feature an inner steel door plate for even more security than what is offered by a 1" composite door found in Level 2 and 3 gun safes.

Monster Locking Mechanism

The lock of a Liberty gun safe is the first line of defense against thieves. But what happens if that lock is broken or smashed? A Security Level 5 safe features a DX-90 Monster Mech locking mechanism with an over-center, direct-drive cam mechanism. This superior mechanism protects the safe from side bolt punch attacks by removing pressure from all the safe’s locking bolts.

An added benefit is Liberty’s innovative, patent-pending slip-clutch technology that disconnects the safe’s clutch if a thief tries to torque the handles. This mechanism is included with all safes equipped with 1-inch Tough Doors.

Even Thicker Bars with a Security Level 5 Safe

Security Level 5 safes have 3/8"-thick, military-style locking bars. These bars outperform traditional locking pins to keep burglars out with added surface for a stronger defense against a break-in. Depending on the safe size, Lincoln Series gun safes have up to 15 locking bars for excellent protection at affordable prices.

Ball-Bearing Hardplate for Superior Security

The triple hardplate steel used as a lock guard in Liberty’s Level 2-4 gun safes is extremely strong. But Level 5 safes are made even stronger with a ball-bearing hardplate. This special hardplate has ball-bearings embedded into the steel hardplate. The safe’s locking mechanism remains protected. A burglar will quickly become frustrated trying to drill into this plate because his drill bit will snap or just constantly spin on the bearings.
