The evolution of Gardall can be traced all the way back to the 1930's when a successful Syracuse retailer named George Bloch began a safe manufacturing plant by the name of Protectall. With Bloch's sharp wit and business savy Protectall was soon doing a very respectable business. All of this fame and prosperity soon attracted the attention of a major competitive manufacturing rival Mosler Safe Company, who eventually bought the company for a sum of $1 million.
After the acquisition, Edward Mosler was appointed to head the company in Syracuse. With the help of Henry Bluestone, who ran the sales department when Bloch owned Protectall, Mosler successfully ran the company until 1949. At that time, Mr. Mosler Sr. decided to close the Syracuse plant and consolidate it into the main Mosler facility in Hamilton, Ohio.
At that point, Bluestone decided to start a safe manufacturing company of his own and named it Gardall Safe Corporation. After soliciting and eventually recieving some badly needed financial aid, Bluestone set up a crude, modest and mostly under-capitalized manufacturing plant.
During that time, Gardall was located in a building that was owned by the Falso family, also owners of Thor Metal Products. Gardall was experiencig severe cash flow problems and Bluestone was needing some help to stay alive. Bluestone approached the Falso's with an offer to purchase the controlling share of the company. He knew that with their sheet metal fabricating knowledge and ability to invest much needed liquidity into the business, he could turn Gardall into a profitable business.
Adolph and Raymond Falso accepted Bluestone's offer in 1970 and purchased Gardall Safe Corporation. Bluestone remained with the company doing what he did best, sales.
In 1978, Adolph Falso became a full-time employee of Gardall as its president. Under his leadership, Gardall continued to improve the quality of its products and introduced many offerings to the line. After almost 30 years of selling directly to dealers, Mr. Falso decided that the proper selling channel for safes was through regional distribution. In 1985 he began the process of converting his dealer business into a distribution-based business.
In 1986, Gardall was purchased by David Patton and Ed Baroody. At the time Baroody, a corporate accountant, was vice president of finance for a division of Shell Oil. Mr. Baroody assumed the role of President of Gardall.
Today Gardall Safe Corporation sells products in all fifty states and around the world. Gardall has become a recognized leader in residential, small business, and commercial grade safes. The quality and integrity established by George Bloch continue today. Modern manufacturing designs allow Gardall to continue to be recognized for it's security and functionality.

The safe was pretty straight forward to install in-wall. The only thing I was not much of a fan of is that it requires the use of both the combination (4 numbers) and the key to operate. Overall very satisfied for the price.
Easier Then I Thought To Install.

This safe will be used for my family personally and is being flush mounted in the wall. This is a new construction area so after taking measurements from the safe after arrival, I framed in the base and opening. I think it would have been more difficult to mount if it had not been new construction. I like the safe and it appears to be what I wanted as far as fire resistance, heaviness to withstand a forced entry, and visually appealing. I did check into other safes in the same price range and found the interiors to be padded or a shelf in some,or both, with these safes being of the same size and fire rating. I feel the plastic tray is cheap and I would have liked it better if there was a slide in shelf that could be adjusted. Other than not having a shelf, I do like this safe and the metal trim that makes it a wall safe is heavily built and looks nice also. All in all I am pleased with the safe and would recommend it to a friend.

I thought I was getting a more linear safe, but this one is more horizontal. I thought I wouldn't be able to use it, but I made it work and I really like it. It's good quality and sturdy.
