How to Make Your Home Bulletproof with BallistiCrete

When we talk to our clients about creating fortified (and at times, bulletproof) homes, they typically ask about windows and doors. They want to know how they can keep intruders (whether random or specific) out of their homes and keep their families completely safe.  We tell them about how our windows are made — how they’re triple-layered and bulletproof, but still beautiful.

Given the nature of our business, we work with a lot of high-profile clientele. Some of them are looking for panic rooms in their homes, while others are looking for ways to fortify both the interior and the exterior, essentially turning the entire home into an impenetrable fortress. We’ve designed custom security doors and windows for Hollywood A-Listers, professional athletes and musicians, as well as lesser-known people on the Forbes 50. The common thread among all these people is simple: they’re in the public eye, they’re wealthy, and they have a desire to protect themselves — but most importantly, their families — from anyone who may be targeting them.
