It is important to keep your guns securely locked away at all times and if you own a gun you must follow strict Home Office requirements to store it safely and securely.
All the gun cabinets installed by Banham meet with the strict Home Office requirements.
Guns can be used by burglars or other criminals when they are attempting to carry out a crime so keep your guns securely locked away at all times. Your gun cabinets should be kept out of view too, so fix them to a wall away from windows.
