Product Details and Technical Specification


Pangolin R vehicle safes are dimensioned to suit the vehicle, installation location and weapons.  Usually oriented horizontally with weapons laid flat or upright. Customised interior furnishing protects the weapons from damage by bumping against each other or against the safe.


The full access opening can be arranged to be at the top or front of the safe along a long side. When front opening the hinge is located at the top. The angle at the full open position can be anything up to 180°, depending on space available in the vehicle.


The safe can be mounted flat on the floor of the vehicle or raised on mounting brackets.  Raised mountings are useful for sedans and hatchbacks as this allows stowage space under the safe and access to the boot well for spare wheel and jack, etc.

Note than in order to comply with firearms regulations the safe (or dock) must be mounted by a professional installer who must supply a certificate of installation verifying compliance with SANS 953-1:2018.
