As a company that is focused on keeping people and assets safe and secure with our bespoke panic and safe rooms, we’re always keeping one eye on global politics and how decisions that politicians make every day affect our industry.

In recent months there seems to have been a distinct increase in news stories that refer to nuclear war. From the posturing Twitter conversations of certain world leaders about who’s got the biggest button and rising unrest in the Middle East, to the false missile alarm in Hawaii, all of this uncertainty is leading more and more people to question their safety in the event of a nuclear attack.

“Nuclear fallout shelters and bunkers have obviously been around for many years – there are thousands of them in service across the globe, many of which were constructed during the Cold War – and we’ve worked on several such projects over the years,” says Paul Weldon, managing director of The Panic Room Company. “However, there has undoubtedly been an upsurge in individuals wanting more information on this particular type of shelter and since the inauguration of Mr Trump.”

Continues Paul: “A nuclear fallout shelter is specifically designed to protect occupants from radioactive debris or fallout resulting from a nuclear explosion. Following an explosion, the shelter will minimise exposure from harmful fallout for those inside and afford a safe haven to live until radioactivity has decayed to a safer level.

“A nuclear shelter or bunker is the ultimate protection and the design and installation of one is well within our capabilities.”
