Building and constructing a modular bank vault or panel vault for security and storage is no easy task. With vaults weighing tens of thousands of pounds they require heavy equipment and several trained installers to ensure that the vault is plumb, level and square at all key points.
Typical wall panels in new vault construction have 8"x8" a 1/4" steel in each corner.
The vault panels should be attached to each other and to the floor anchor plates by 3" of weld. This can be done as a 3" long weld or three 1" beads.
Included in the image above are the primary welding points that must be made for proper construction and vault assembly. This welding detail is one of the most important features in the erection of a modular vault.
