Looks like the real thing right? It is not...only the black dials are purchased off the shelf from a locksmith. The door, hinges, rods, and paddle wheel were completely fabricated from a combination of lightweight and medium weight foam and then skim-coated with plaster to seal in the material. After sanding and painting the surfaces closely resemble the vault doors you might see at a local bank. This was our solution to providing the customer with a lightweight but realistic vault door to be placed on display in their showroom.
