Do you live in LA, DC or *gulp* Austin? How are you dealing with the knowledge that you’re now on Kim Jong Un’s nuclear hit list? If a new gun safe’s in your future, you need to be damned sure you can help fight off the Hermit Kingdom’s hordes of invaders after the red dawn breaks, even if the electronic innards are frazzled. No worries. Cannon Safe has you covered with their new dual access EMP Locking System. It “combines the day-to-day simplicity of an electronic lock with the long-term assurance of a manual combination lock.” Reassured? Press release after the jump . . .
San Bernardino, Calif. – Safe buyers no longer have to choose between the speed and convenience of an electronic lock and the unfailing reliability of a mechanical lock. With the all-new EMP Lock, Cannon Safe is now the only safe company to offer a dual-access locking system that combines the day-to-day simplicity of an electronic lock with the long-term assurance of a manual combination lock.
The EMP Lock comes standard on all Armory, Cannon and Commander series safes in 2013.
The day-to-day advantage of an electronic lock is that opening the safe is quick and requires the owner to simply enter the combination on the keypad for immediate access.
The long-term advantage of the mechanical lock is that it is impervious to power outage. In the event of an electromagnetic pulse or any disaster that prevents the owner from getting new batteries for the electronic lock – the manual dial on the EMP Lock will still provide access to the contents inside.
“Cannon’s EMP lock is the cutting edge of high security lock technology. It allows the ultimate user experience with the ease and security of a Type 1 high security lock with the peace of mind of a mechanical override, all of this rolled into the ultimate UL Type 1 rating,” said Aaron Baker, president of Cannon Safe.
“At Cannon Safe we have been the drivers of safe innovations and technology advancements since 1965. This is a huge step forward for safes and for the experience a safe owner will have in the future. The EMP Lock will provide the peace of mind you want and deserve but will only find being a member of the Cannon Family.”
Cannon is proud to be the only safe company to offer a lifetime, hassle-free, zero cost warranty on their safes. If a customer’s safe is ever damaged due to a fire, natural flood, or burglary Cannon will cover all costs including locksmith, freight, parts, etc. to repair or replace the safe, even if the owner is not the original purchaser.
