Fireproof Wall Safe
Greg from California– Verified Buyer
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.

'Safe with this safe'
Larry from Irving, TX
This safe is larger and heavier than I expected. Planned to install in a wall, but it's too large. I poured a concrete pad in a closet and mounted it to the floor, enclosed in framing and wall board, textured to match. Looks great and plenty secure for valuables.
Even a cave man would want one.

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.
Great Safe but Tough to Install
Ferris Bueller from Chicago, IL– Verified Buyer
Great price point on this safe. Difficult to install and the instructions were lacking. 50/50 on if I would buy this safe again.
Early Riser from Ashland, OH– Verified Buyer
[...] The safe has lots of room for storage of documents and personal items. It is very heavy and sturdy but a little difficult to install. Once it was in place it was easily covered by a picture and is attractive when uncovered. I feel confident about it's ability to protect my documents and property.
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.
