Luxury Panic Rooms and VIP Evacuation Services Are in High Demand

During this Coronavirus Pandemic, Celebrities and the Ultra High Net Worth are turning to Bunkers, Safe Rooms and SWAT-like security teams…

Protecting the rich and famous is a serious business. That’s why many prominent celebrities, athletes, and business tycoons are taking control of their safety and installing safe rooms, often referred to as “panic rooms,” in their homes. “It’s not a luxury; it’s a necessity,” say Darren Sukenik, luxury sales broker with Douglas Elliman in New York, “for anyone with significant means or significant staff, or a coterie of people coming in and out of the house.”

A panic room is most successful based on its ability to camouflage itself: An extra bedroom, unused maid’s quarters, or a few closets that are strategically eliminated from the floor plan provide the most clandestine locations, hidden behind fake bookshelves or doors. Entry requires a passcode or combination, and, in some situations, thumbprints. Common requests include everything from generators and infrared surveillance systems to sleeping quarters and an escape tunnel. Many come equipped with Kevlar lining and autonomous air-filtration systems.

Sukenik says that in the luxury home sales market, a property with a safe room is even more desirable to prominent buyers, particularly if it’s able to serve double duty.

“A lot of women use it as a dressing room. It truly is your own bank vault in your house. People could also use it as a wine cellar, because they’re climate controlled. They could use it for cigars, jewelry, papers,” Sukenik says. “It could be a room that’s actually used, but completely fire rated or flood protected—and locked off.”

It could be a home office, or walk in closet, that also acts as a safe room in case of an intruder or an attacker.

Beverly Hills and Bel-Air in California, The Hamptons in New York, London, Monaco, Paris and all major global cities are a specifically popular destinations for safe rooms.

Many prominent actors, politicians, and business executives have gone a step further in their mission to protect themselves and their families. Ultimate Personal Security Protection is an extreme level of security equipped to protect you from everything from burglaries and terrorist attacks to kidnappings for ransom. But these highly trained professionals are hardly your average security workers. The training process is comparable to a mix of the U.S. Marine Corps and the Secret Service.

Unfortunately celebrities and UHNWI’s might not be as safe as they think. There is a huge difference in security protection services out there.
