Provo Steel & Supply Company was founded in 1947 by F.L. (Shorty) Shurtliff, who had a vision of a quality metalworking shop that could serve the construction industry of Utah. With just $600 and this straightforward idea, the business soon spread to other cities and states, supplying steel handrails, stairwells, and structural steel.
In the early 1960s, the renamed ProSteel Supply Company was fortunate to land a contract with the iconic Tropicana Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The contract catapulted the company to a major supplier of structural steel products. But the story doesn't end there.
While having some equipment repaired, a customer commented that he needed a safe to store his guns and valuables. Shorty recognized the opportunity, and in February of 1977 ProSteel began manufacturing gun safes. They established a dealer network, selling their safes throughout the United States. The demand for these safes quickly consumed the company's entire manufacturing capacity.
The Browning tradition of excellence began in 1878 with a single shot rifle designed by John Moses Browning in his father’s gun repair shop in Ogden, Utah. Since then, Browning has designed and sold some of the most legendary pieces in firearm history. Browning began to inquire about the possibility of marketing ProSteel Security Safes through their dealer network and in January of 1983 they contracted with ProSteel to become their exclusive safe supplier.
Today, Browning Safes® manufactured by ProSteel Security Products, combines quality construction, proprietary technology, and patented interior designs that elevate them above the competition and give you peace of mind.

The OmniBarrier® Lock Protection System is a carefully engineered structure of steel hard plate and steel components designed to protect the safe lock from drill, punch and push attacks.
The Formed Door is engineered with a rugged steel face. Inner plate and reinforcement panels provide excellent strength and attack protection compared to the competition.
The Reinforced Door Frame means an integrated return flange strengthens the door opening of the safe for added pry and attack resistance.
Duo-Formed® Door is made from multiple layers of steel formed together to provide superior strength, pry resistance, and attack protection. A Full second panel offers outstanding strength and rigidity.
The patented Force Deflector™ Locking System is a rotating cam device that prevents prying or pounding forces to the bolts or handles from reaching the lock. It is superior to most locking systems used in the safe industry.
Pry-Stop End Bolts secure the critical door corners. Most than two and one-half times longer than regular bolts, they attach to a high-strength steel angle that prevents the locking bolt support bar from bending in a pry attack.
Pry-Stop Corner Bolts provide better protection than other pry-defense designs. Innovative long locking bolts extend diagonally from reinforced support at the corners of the door to protect against pry attack in these areas.
180° Heavy Duty Exterior Hinges allow the door to swing open 180° for unhindered access to the safe interior. Locking bolts maintain security if the hinges are cut off, and external hinges eliminate the need to remove insulation resulting in improved fire protection.
The Gear Drive™ Locking System is used in the finest Pro-Series locking mechanism. It uses robust cam locks and an extensive, multiple diversion bar system to prevent bolt or handle pressure from reaching the lock. Forces go to the cams and diversion bars for protection unmatched by other locking systems.
The Hardened Pin Lock Protection countermeasure protects the locking mechanism from drill attacks. When a drill bit attempts to breach the pins, they are designed to roll, helping prevent the bit from grabbing the material where it can bore through and eventually reach the lock.
