"I cannot say enough great things about my Magnum Extreme door by Smith Security Safes!
Before the purchase, Doug answered all my questions and there were many of them. The purchase and delivery was smooth and fast, especially for such a large and heavy item. The installation was exactly how described and the door quality exceeds expectations. The door is perfectly balanced! It can be moved with one finger even though it weighs 10x more than I do.
Doug has been great to work with before, during and after the purchase. I highly recommend Smith Security Safes and I will be a returning customer when I build my next vault."

"I just wanted to send you a quick note to tell you how pleased I am with the heavy duty door. Your guys were great helping load it into my truck and the main thing…….QUALITY.
Quality construction, quality operation, quality appearance and quality personnel. It's refreshing to see it still exists. You're a blessed business man."
- Barney C.

I appreciate your working with me to design this custom size door. I will gladly recommend Smith Security Safes to anyone looking for an affordable solid door or safe with great customer service."
