About Us

TacticalWalls is a family owned and operated business, based in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Our products are proudly manufactured in the United States. Every product is hand crafted, using mostly U.S. sourced materials, whenever possible.  We make products that are simple to install, are easy to use, and offer discrete storage solutions for every room.

Founder, Tim Matter, came up with the idea for the first product while trying to solve the familiar problem of limited storage space. He needed a way to store firearms safely out of sight while maintaining quick access to them. His answer was an elegant solution that took advantage of the unused space inside the walls. This idea became the first Tactical Walls product: the 1450M, which was released in January of 2013.

Tim Matter is a husband and father. He served four years of active duty in the USAF as a crew chief on F-16’s. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design from the Art Institute of Philadelphia. Tim enjoys shooting, riding motorcycles, and making people laugh. He loves creating and designing, and is always working on some new project.
