LUXURY ELEMENTS – SAFE ROOMS FOR VALUABLES AND FIREARMS
Many individuals or families have valuable collections they want to keep secure, protected from theft, and away from prying eyes but close at hand. This can be anything such as artwork, antiques, or firearms; anything the owner values and wishes to keep safe.
Luxury Elements, your Chicago area specialty building contractor, can design and build a “safe room” in your home for your valuable collections and firearms. Like everything we design and construct, we use our exclusive 7-step methodology to determine your Safe Room’s ideal location and design. We also use the same 3-part CAD design system giving the client a view of the room, from an initial “blueprint” to a final color rendering, to ensure the room will be built exactly as you wish.
See our Complete Home Renovation page for a complete description of our construction processes.
WHAT IS A SAFE ROOM?
A safe room is a discreetly hidden space designed for a particular storage use and built with safeguards against intruders, fire, and storms. The most common safe rooms are for firearms, called “gun safe” rooms, although they can also be designed for other collections. A safe room can be incorporated into home remodels, new construction, or in areas of an existing home and can be easily added to the architectural design. These rooms are armored and are equipped with special vault-type doors to deter burglars, home invaders, or curious children.
Temperature and humidity in a safe room must be kept at an ideal level as it is critical for the well-being of the stored objects. High humidity is detrimental to firearms causing rust and pitting and is also harmful to artwork, objet d’art, and antique furniture, etc. This is why many safe rooms are often equipped with dehumidifiers. Note: An attic is not an ideal location due to extremes of temperature and humidity unless the safe room is temperature/humidity controlled.
IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER ABOUT THE DESIGN AND LOCATION OF SAFE ROOMS
- The Safe Room should be placed in a discreet location in basements, closets or under stairs, etc.
- The Safe Room door is as important as the shielded walls themselves.
- The Safe Room should be fireproof as well as burglar-proof.
- Safe Rooms should be designed to fit the home’s aesthetics.
- Safe Rooms can be designed for storage only or for display and storage similar to a wine cellar.
