Residential Safe Rooms Are No Longer a Luxury for the Rich & Famous
Today, safe rooms are often an integral part of new home construction. In other instances, a converted walk-in closet or bathroom is easily be transformed into protective environment. Safe rooms constructed by professionals can transform an existing space into a homeowner's ultimate sanctum. Best of all, the space retains its natural look-and-feel while safeguarding the lives of the family and pets.
Few things are as potentially gruesome as a home invasion. Though the FBI and local law enforcement typically do not track this specific crime, news headlines tell a very different story: from wealthy suburbs to middle class neighborhoods, from the legendary Gold Coast to the nation's heartland, home invasions are now, sadly, part of our existence. For home invaders have no regard for human life; injuring or murdering a family is simply a means to an evil end: stealing valuables and cash.
The very nature of a home invasion - a phenomenon that transcends race, class, education and geography - reminds us that no one is immune from this crime. All of which explains the added necessity of constructing a Safe/Space™, a fortified environment that acts as a protective refuge in the event of a home invasion or other threat.
Today, safe rooms are often an integral part of new home construction. In other instances, a converted walk-in closet or bathroom can easily be transformed into protective environment. Safe rooms constructed by professionals can transform an existing space into a homeowner's ultimate sanctum. Best of all, the space retains its natural look-and-feel while safeguarding the lives of the family and pets.
Some of the features of these unique safe rooms:
include: security door(s) with impact resistant vault like door pins; walls, floors and ceilings reinforced with proprietary ballistic panels and wire mesh materials; surveillance equipment and LCD keypads wired to the alarm system, which aids both family members and the police in pinpointing an intruder's location in the home; power outlets, cell phone chargers, as well as first-aid kits, emergency lighting, water, packaged food, and possibly, self-defense tools.
And, while films and television programs continue to mythologize safe rooms as an indulgence for the super rich or eccentric, actual events tell a different story: safe rooms are becoming an integral part of middle glass residences worldwide.
All though seldom broadcast on the news- safe rooms are increasingly the key factor between life and death. In fact, safe rooms for homeowners are the result of a country faced with economic turmoil and increased violence -- a situation where criminals will stop at nothing to achieve their heinous goals.
In this life or death situation, the only proven barrier against an attacker is a safe room. Throughout this process, one principle is sacred: a safe room is a haven, a place where individuals, families or friends can hunker-down away from harm during the nail-biting period between the alarm sounding and the police arriving on scene.
And in this day and age when a standard room is easily retrofitted for as little as $ 10.000.00 dollars, the lack of a safe room is, according to The Security Sensei™ - potentially a huge blunder: the assault or murder of a child or parent would forever emotionally scar a family, expose friends to unbearable shock and leave a community devastated and in constant worry. Simply said, no homeowner is truly safe without protective barrier to stop or slow down violent intruders.
A safe room is an investment in the long-term value of a home, something that gives extra peace of mind to buyers. Also, a safe room only adds to the worth of a property since there is no aesthetic drawback in fortifying an existing room. The Security Sensei states "For some of my clients, a safe room is as inseparable as plumbing or electricity, necessities that we must never be overlooked"
Also, Take, for instance, this story (but one of hundreds of similar tales across the US) about a prominent Connecticut doctor attacked in the midst of a home invasion that left his two children dead, his wife strangled and his home engulfed in flames:. "Our precious family members have been the victims of horrible, senseless, violent assaults. We are understandably shocked and overwhelmed with sadness as we attempt to gather to support one another," said a statement from the family of Dr. William Petit, Jr., the lone survivor of this terrible event.
This tragedy underscores the importance of having a safe room, something constructed, tested and certified by professionals who have the proven track record to address this matter. This latter point - the necessity of only working with experienced professionals - deserves more attention, because a lot of unsavory characters mislead homeowners and construct safe rooms that fail to offer adequate protection. And yet, these so-called "safe rooms" are wildly expensive and largely ineffective.
One thing for certain is safe rooms are no longer a luxury for the affluent, but are now an affordable means of protecting millions of homeowners nationwide. For without a safe room to protect families from America`s increased violence, the criminals win. Period.
A safe room - the propriety kind designed by The Security Sensei™ who understands the enormity of this issue - can help shield against outside threats. As a haven from the unexpected and unforeseen, a safe room is one of the wisest investments homeowners can make.
