List Of Safes By Their Gauge of Steel In 2023

We may get commissions for purchases made through links in this post. Thanks for the support! 👍

There are hundreds of safes on the market today, all ranging in different thicknesses of steel. However sometimes it really is hard to know which safe has what. Below is a list of all gauges of steel, and what safes have that thickness. This list is based off of the steel in the body of the safe. Please keep in mind, the higher the gauge number, the thinner the steel. Thinnest steel is on top, thickest on bottom.

This is just the beginning of the list, but should give a good idea of what the industry as a whole favors for thickness. It also should help you find the best bang for the buck when it comes to steel thickness.
