Have you gotten a price on the doors yet? I can email them but I thought I would check here first. I have never thought of a Vault, but after looking at your photos I realized I have a space in my basement that could be perfect.

I better add this was also for an opening of 40" x 83".
I have never bought anything like this so I was hopping some one here could give some input on what might have the best fire rating est.....

The second link is a company that makes doors for DOJ, FBI, and what not. They also have a picture of a door they made for a gold mining company that can have a fork lift drive through it. I found these websites while looking for a gun safe of my own. Hope it helps out a little.

IMO, I would buy a vault door that opens in...that way you can also use the room as a safe room for natural disaster, and get it open if something falls against it from the outside.
as make sure it has a panic bar to open from the inside after locked.
phone line is a good idea, also an air line...small pvc piped to the yard somewhere with a cap on it....that way fresh air can get in if necessary.
a couple fold down cots, lots of bottled water, and a case of MRE's and you can last a while...
as remember a portable tiolet that uses trash bags, so you can go and tie up TIGHT if you have to be in there for any time.
of course of things like portable weather radio, cb, lantern, whistle, etc...the list is long of options.

Man, I wish we had basements in TX. I would love to have a panic room/vault/man cave like that.
