Steampunk Era Vaults That No Villain Can Crack

A safe is a unique and powerful engineering marvel designed to intimidate villains and protect valuables. It’s rare, however, to find one that can achieve both while showcasing mechanical beauty in a way that does not weaken the structural design. Inspired by steampunk, a genre which re-imagines modern technology through the lens of Victorian-era materials and steam power, these safes easily communicate invincibility and craftsmanship to monocle-sporting baddies.

Vault #1 – A perfect fit for Hellboy’s Kroenen: A slender mix of brass and steel badass.

Vault #2: Flashy, elaborate and over-the-top like Dr. Arliss Loveless in Wild Wild West.

Vault 3: Self-confidence and style surrounded by luxury, just like Dorian Grey from the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
