Government and Military Standards

Military Handbook Class A Vault Penetration Times, Table 10 and 11

An industry leader serving the needs of government and military agencies, International Vault routinely provides physical security solutions to the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines by meeting specific General Services Administration (GSA) and Military Handbook certifications and requirements for modular vaults, vault doors, and pre-assembled modular armories.

All of our military and government grade products must pass Underwriters Laboratories (UL) testing before going on to achieve Government Service Administration (GSA) certification.

 

For offices referencing the Military Handbook - MIL-HDBK-1013/1A (MILITARY HANDBOOK: DESIGN GUIDELINES FOR PHYSICAL SECURITY OF FACILITIES), International Vault offers turnkey solutions by providing modular vault construction meeting the Minimum Construction Requirements detailed in section 5.4 (pages 105-108) for both Class A Maximum Protection and Class B Adequate Protection vaults.

  • For Class A Vaults, forced entry penetration attacks are not practical at low and medium threat levels (Table 10, page 106 - MIL-HDBK-1013.)
  • For Class B Vaults, low forced entry penetration attacks are not practical and medium penetration attacks are withstood from 4 to 10 minutes (Table 11, page 109 - MIL-HDBK-1013.)
  • Both Class A and B Vault specifications require vault doors and frames meeting Class 5 federal specification AA-D-600C.
  • International Vault is the only company in the world making a lightweight modular panel meeting GSA certification.

Penetration threats are classed in the Military Handbook as Low, Medium, High, and Very High.  Low level attacks correspond to the use of simple hand-held tools. The medium level is comprised of all hand-applied and some battery-operated tools. High level attacks include the use of power tools such as burn bars, jackhammers, and more.  Very high level threats include the use of explosives.

The Military Handbook ratings are comprehensive, covering both vault panels and vault doors, as well as locks and video/audio surveillance and communications systems. 

International Vault offers a variety of customizable vault solutions meeting Military Handbook requirements, including our MegaCrete Vaults, Pre-Assembled Modular Armories, Lightweight Vaults, and Scimitar Vault Doors.
