Are There EMP Resistant Safe Locks?

According to U.S. News & World Report, the threat of an EMP attack is real in the United States. News about North Korea and Iran's nuclear programs are a constant reminder that this should not be ignored. But it is not just the threat of nuclear attack that we should worry about, there are other instances that could cause EMP problems, too. If a catastrophic EMP event were to happen, our country's infrastructure is poorly prepared for the resulting devastation and chaos. But there is something that you could do to protect yourself and your family in the event of an EMP attack: an EMP resistant gun safe lock.

What Is EMP?

EMP stands for electromagnetic pulses which are short bursts of electromagnetic energy. They can damage or interfere with electrical or electronic equipment. When this happens, the equipment's functionality may be disabled temporarily or completely. While the biggest threat we hear about in the news about EMP is from nuclear attack, EMP could also occur:

  • Naturally from a massive solar flare
  • From a cyberattack
  • From intentional electromagnetic interference weapons

These EMP causes could expose or exploit vulnerabilities in our country's power grid and shut down the electric grid.

What If an EMP Attack Occurs?

Whether from a natural cause or a full-blown attack from a foreign aggressor, the results of an EMP attack would be devastating. Panic would likely result, and when people are scared, they do things that they normally would not do. And you, of course, would want to make sure that your family is safe.

Upgrade to an EMP Resistant Safe Lock

If you're like many people, you have chosen to purchase a gun safe to keep your guns and valuables secure in your home. But in the event of a national emergency, like an EMP attack, if you have an electronic lock on your safe, you might not be able to open it. This would definitely be a time where you might need to access cash that you have stashed away for an emergency because ATMs are likely to be rendered useless. Plus, you'll want to be able to access your guns to protect your family and home if needed. So, what can you do?

We're also proud to announce that our SecuRam TopLit, SecuRam BackLit, and SecuRam ProLogic safe locks were recently tested and certified as EMP resistant by Dayton T. Brown Laboratories, the largest independent A2LA accredited testing lab in the United States. This is the same lab that tests equipment for the military.

You can rest assured that if an EMP catastrophe strikes, you will be able to get into your safe.
