This is DuraPlas™, the most durable, longest lasting finish available. It withstands damage from elements and whatever they may bring. Its build and design withstand direct impacts. The matte black surface stays beautiful.

Our state-of-the-art DuraPlas™ developed within the automotive industry. This thermoplastic held true under a range of rigorous conditions. We’ve taken it as far as marine environments where salt spray environments can greatly diminish the lifespan of most metals. We protect our solutions to last out in the real world. As a part of our environmental consciousness, we’ve committed to keeping our vault materials PVC-free.
