Can the Answer safes be placed on a wooden floor without reinforcement?
Yes, the safe can be placed on wood floors anywhere in your home.
Is this safe fire rated?
No, please read our articles on gun safes and fire ratings and gun corrosion. No class RSC gun safe (most gun safes under $10,000) sold in America is fireproof regardless of what the stickers on the door say. see: our article Gun Safe Corrosion and Fire Ratings below
Other than size, what is the difference between the Agile 52 and the Answer safes?
The Agile is lighter, it is 16GA steel, ships flat (It can ship UPS) and you assemble it. The Answer is an all-welded 12GA steel safe. The Answer 12 is 400lbs, the Answer 8 299lbs vs the Agile at 100lbs. Answer Gun Safes ship via truck. While they are heavier and bigger, you can still move them with 2 people and a standard appliance dolly.
Is the Answer safe as strong as a normal gun safe like Liberty or Stack-on?
Yes, The Answer is as strong or stronger than most traditional gun safes. What we have done, is build a quality safe and eliminated the drywall, carpeting, and horrible interiors. Unlike other safes, there are no corrosive materials in any SecureIt safe or cabinet. For more information on gun safes and corrosion, see the article at the bottom of this page.
