Construction options for your panic room

The most cost-effective and best way to build a panic room is during the construction of a new custom home or building. Up to 20 percent of new custom homes now include panic rooms.

OakWood can also create a secure panic room by converting an existing space such as a den, walk-in closet, wine cellar, upstairs bedroom, basement, or storage area or by adding a custom addition with state-of-the-art security systems.  Let’s talk about the best option for you

Customized for your goals

The type of panic room depends on your goals. We can provide a custom design and build solution for an impregnable, short-term emergency safe-room or a longer-term, fully appointed, net-zero condo style facility with air filtration systems, CO2 scrubbers and high-tech systems for maximum protection. Understanding your goals and planning is the key to success.

Short-term panic rooms

Get protection from break-ins or intruders until law enforcement professionals arrive. These can be bulletproof, fire resistant and unbreachable with concealed access. They usually include battery operated alarms, monitored alarm system, fortified steel walls and door, options for storing supplies and valuables, and other features.

Longer-term, luxury safe havens

Our long-term solutions are limited only by your imagination and budget.  These can be designed to meet the most stringent safety, emergency and threat protection requirements including natural disasters, bioterrorism, bomb attacks—even nuclear war.

Solutions can include blast-proof Kevlar walls, military grade air filtration systems, heat and cooling systems, emergency equipment and provisions, independent power systems, and much more. This is no survivalist bunker; you get a well-fortified, reinforced, highly secure luxury condo for long-term living.

Design plans are reviewed by specialized security professionals with top security clearance.
