How a Bedroom Security Door Can Help You Get Better Sleep

Many people choose to protect their homes with security alarms, complete with cameras and motion sensors. They’re certainly not a bad idea, but they’re definitely not a guarantee of your safety. At least, not in the same way a bedroom security door can be.  What ends up happening with home security systems is that they’re used improperly, which makes them less effective. Residents set them off accidentally by venturing outside a specified zone, opening the door before disarming the alarm (because they forgot), or the dog is tripping the motion sensors. For all of these reasons (and more), homeowners tend to turn the alarm off when they’re home, leaving them entirely unprotected.  Before long, the alarm is only used when the residents leave for the day, or the evening, or when they’re on vacation.

Why You Need Custom Security Windows in Your Home

We talk mostly about high security doors in our office. After all, that’s what our clients are primarily interested in. And to be fair, they offer the most options for customization, from covering options to state-of-the-art technology to larger than life pivot doors. There’s no shortage of ways we can create one-of-a-kind security doors for our clients. What is sometimes overlooked in the initial discussion with potential clients is custom security windows. It doesn’t seem nearly as exciting or enticing to discuss windows. To most homeowners, windows are merely a necessity — something to keep the weather out and let light into the house. They’re just panes of glass, right? Why bother putting much thought into them? While that’s a perfectly understandable thought process, we don’t entirely agree. Windows vary greatly in terms of features, energyRead more

Insider Look: How Home Security Doors and Windows are Made

When you talk to us about your home security door needs, you’ll probably hear us mention Italy a few (dozen) times. We talk about it a lot because that’s where our doors are physically made — at a massive factory in San Martino Buon Albergo, Verona. It’s where all the magic happens. The artisans who build our products in Italy have decades of experience creating custom security doors and windows that are elegant and inspiring.

How to Make Your Smart Home Brilliant and Secure

Hello there! My name is David Vranicar and I’m the Managing Partner here at Fortified & Ballistic Security. I’m very proud to say I’ve been here since the very beginning — I’m one of the founders of the business.  I meet with almost all of our clients at some point or another, whether it’s at the beginning when they’re trying to decide if they want to hire us, or later on to look at the final product. I take a lot of pride in getting to know the people we work with and for the sake of transparency, I thought I should get down a few things about myself. I think it’s important to know who you’re working with.  Background: Home Automation Before I got into home security, I worked in home automation for many years.Read more
