We established SafeWood Designs because our changing world means that safety and security needs are increasing and gun violence is a very real threat. An unfortunate threat to our schools, homes, places of worship, offices, and businesses.
In today's market nearly all ballistic doors, walls and room products are "cookie cutter", often leaving your home or business looking and feeling like a prison.
Why should having safety and security mean losing warmth and elegance? In an ideal world, all secure surroundings would be beautiful, blending with existing millwork and furnishings completely undetected.
At SafeWood Designs you can have both beauty and safety.
