1: Handgun Safe manufactured from Lexan Polycarbonate.

Australian made Handgun Safe (also known as Hide Away Safe) is made from Lexan Polycarbonate.

Lexan is a General Electric trademarked impact modified Polycarbonate known world wide for its:

Lexan is a resilient memory material which makes the Handgun Safe prise-proof, assuming that a thief finds it in the first place.

2: Lexan is as Tough as Steel and virtually indestructible.

Lexan is also incredibly light weight, but as Tough as Steel and virtually indestructible.

The high security, light weight range of safes are manufactured by Hide Away Safe Co, the Australian manufacturer, using their own special formulae of Lexan Polycarbonate.

The Handgun Safe was originally designed in 1993 as a Day Safe.

What do we mean by a Day Safe...

The Handgun Safe is installed somewhere easy and quick to get to but still hidden from sight in your house or apartment so when you come home you place your wallet, watch, jewelery, car keys etc in the Handgun Safe (Hide Away Safe) instead of placing them on the bed side cabinet or kitchen bench top or any other out in the open place you leave them.

Passport Safe...

Is the same as the Handgun Safe except instead of the convoluted foam on the lid and the base we include four removable insert boxes.

To secure passports the two center insert boxes have had half the height and width removed allowing up to three passports to sit on top and still allowing the bottom half of both insert boxes to be used to secured valuables.

If you don't need to secure passports...

Then we suggest the mk2 Deluxe Safe, its the same as the Passport Safe except all four removable insert boxes are the same height as the Safe.

Need a bigger Safe...

Then we suggest the larger mk3 Hide Away Safe, its five time the volume of the mk2 Deluxe Safe.

We know for a fact taking less than 30 seconds to secure your valuables in a Safe you will use it on a daily basis instead of leaving valuables on top of your bedside cupboard, on the kitchen bench top or similar.

Tip...

For the individual purchaser the above is the reason to purchase the Handgun Safe.

We also want you to know why the military, police and security companies based their decision to buy the Handgun Safe (Hide Away Safe) from 1996 and still purchasing them today October 23, 2018.

First...

For similar reasons an individual made their decision plus being light weight but as Tough as Steel and virtually indestructible and including pick and drill proof Abloy PROTEC lock.

Second...

The Hide Away Safe Co (the manufacturer) use their own special formulae of Lexan Polycarbonate that with stands diesel and petrol being thrown over it and it WILL NOT melt as other polymers (common term plastic) do.

3: Heat resistant for backed up computer data protection.

Most people know if you leave a CD or DVD on the dash board inside your car in the sun even at 28 degrees Celsius it will be above 40 degrees in the car and within about 30 minutes or so the CD or DVD will be reined.

As we have said above Lexan is light weight but as Tough as Steel and virtually indestructible. If you are not impressed with those benefits I am sure the following will.

the added bonus of Lexan is
it is heat resistant

Once you close the lid of the Handgun Safe it does not transfer heat to the inside of the Safe.

Heat destroys backed up computer data no matter what it is stored on...

Data Backup Safe...

Is the same as the Handgun Safe except we do not include convoluted foam on the lid and base and we don't include removable insert boxes as we do with the mk2 Deluxe Safe.

If you want to keep your backed up computer data in a vehicle in a secure location (not in a bag on the back seat covered by a towel or blanket) the Data Backup Safe (Hide Away Safe) is the only Safe in the world that will protect your backed up computer data not only from being stolen but also from heat.

5: Why did we choose to manufacture a Safe from Lexan Polycarbonate.

The Handgun Safe was designed as a high security, light weight, anti-theft device. The selection of the material was primarily with consideration for impact resistance and overall strength, we were not concerned about fire.

Lexan Polycarbonate is virtually indestructible.

...why...

First...

Nothing is fire proof, it is only fire resistant.

Look at any metal fire Safe and there will be a label saying:

fire proof for 15 minutes at 400c
or something similar

A house fire burns at a few thousand degrees.

We assume you are intelligent enough to understand what we are saying.

Second...

Our intension was to make a light weight, virtually indestructible Safe with a pick proof and drill proof lock.

that is exactly what we did

6: The reason fire only makes up a very tiny portion of your insurance premium.

98% of people do not live in fire prone areas.

In Australia comparing theft versus fire insurance claims it is in the order of 820 theft to one fire claim.

That means there is one fire claim (that could be just a minor kitchen stove fire) to every 820 claims of theft.

You now know why fire IS NOT a major concern to insurance companies unless you are one of the 2% of people who live in a fire prone area.

All other countries have a similar insurance claim ratios.

...your only concern is...
protecting your valuables being stolen

7: Monitored heat test.

A question we are asked occasionally.

Is the Handgun Safe fire proof...

To answer that question in 1995 we conducted a monitored heat test on a Metal Safe and the Handgun Safe (Hide Away Safe). We wanted to compare the condition of an identical piece of paper in each Safe after being placed inside a kiln for 15 minutes at 400c.

This is what we did...

A piece of paper was torn in half, one half was placed inside a Metal Safe and the other half was placed inside a Handgun Safe. Then both safes were placed in a kiln that had been pre-heated to 400c and left in the kiln for 15 minutes.

The end result being...

After 15 minutes both safes were taken out of the kiln. The internal temperature of the Metal Safe reached 250c and the piece of paper inside was starting to char (paper will start to ignite around 250c) compared with the Handgun Safe internal temperature was only 150c and the piece of paper inside was unaffected.

This experiment showed...

Physical condition of both safes.

Physical condition of the piece of paper inside both safes.

The protection of the contents inside a Safe is the most crucial factor of Safe ownership.

WARNING

People tend to die in house fires when they spend time removing valuables and keepsakes thinking the fire is not all that serious.

it is smoke that generally kills not the flames
