Designed, engineered and manufactured right here in the U.S.A., Pendleton Safes aims to provide our customers with the absolute best in every facet of safe technology. Our safes are built to uncompromising standards in security, and pioneer the industry with intuitive solutions for not only storing, but managing large, varied collections of firearms and other valuables.
With 3 safe series and over 45 customizable options, including a breakthrough modular rotating shelving system, a Pendleton can be precisely configured to suit the needs of each individual owner, making them the most versatile safes on the market today.

Security is our priority at Pendleton. That's why all Pendleton safes are equipped with an array of advanced, industry-leading security features, created by accomplished engineers with extensive experience designing safes and ATM systems in the banking industry. Pendleton's security features reinforce all points of potential vulnerability – areas that professional safe-crackers can often exploit on other, lesser safes.
We don't mess around when it comes to steel thickness. Measured in inches, not gauges, our King Series safes are clad in 1/4" steel all around, while our Bishop and Knight Series feature 3/16" steel sides with 1/4" steel tops and bottoms. Our high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) steel is stronger per pound and more resistant to corrosion than typical carbon steel. From Wikipedia, "HSLA steel is commonly used in cars, trucks, cranes, bridges, roller coasters and other structures that are designed to handle large amounts of stress or need a good strength-to-weight ratio."
Our unique plate-bolt design provides over 50 inches of solid steel surface area. That's approximately 5X more surface area needed to cut during a break-in, compared to the typical round-bolt design used by most other safe companies.
Pendleton safes employ a special fail-safe system to prevent forced entry. If excessive rotational force is applied, as in the event of a break-in attempt, the handle will shear off, preventing further tampering and disabling the handle mechanism.
Where other safe manufacturers use "chain-welding" to secure certain seams, leaving areas vulnerable to attack, we fully weld and grind smooth every square inch of seam on each safe body for a virtually seamless finished product.
Our precision manufacturing facilities use laser cutting technology to achieve the tightest tolerances for all parts and mechanisms. With less than 90/1000" gap between the door and its frame, Pendleton safes are extremely resistant to pry-bar attacks.
A red LED indicator light on the safe exterior alerts you when the safe door has been left ajar, providing added security and peace of mind.
