The FBI reports that there were an estimated 1,401,840 residential burglaries in the United States in 2017 alone. That amounts to 3,840 unlawful residential property entries every day. Reports like this can make homeowners cringe in their seats. However, shocking as it is, break-ins are not restricted to residential properties. Schools, government facilities, and businesses also experience their fair share of burglaries and break-ins. If anything, this report should tell you there is an urgent need to do something about your home security.
When we talk about home security, alarm systems and security cameras readily come to mind. As good as they are, these additions to the home can only notify you and/or the authorities after a break-in has happened. They do little to prevent burglars from having access to your home in the first place. Too many times, we hear about burglaries turning into violent encounters. If you could effectively prevent criminals from breaking into your home, this is unlikely to happen. And it starts with your door.
HavenShield door barricades are designed to make your homes almost impenetrable to invaders. Criminals get a lot of joy when they try to kick in most of the current door designs out there. However, kicking-in a HavenShield door barricade is an impossible task. The intruder has to expend a lot of time and effort in a bid to bring down a door that’s secured by the barricade. If you’re at home, you’ll have enough time to secure your family and call the police. And if you’re not, you’ll be buying the authorities the time they need to respond to your alarm company’s call.

Securing your door with a HavenShield door barricade does not require any expertise. Furthermore, it does not depend on electricity or the internet. Thus, there’s zero chance of system failure or security breach due to hackers.
Protection during an active shooter event
Sad as it sounds, active shooter events are almost commonplace these days and many establishments are at risk; schools, government properties, healthcare facilities, worship centers, and malls are examples of establishments that have experienced at least one active shooter event since the turn of the century.
If you’re in charge of any facility that may be at risk, a HavenShied door barricade could be a smart way of protecting the people in the facility during an active shooter event; as long as you can gather the people around the vicinity into a room. The shooter would need time to break the door down and help would have arrived before they’re able to do that.
