Home Defense Philosophy

About Us

        Tactical Walls is a family-owned and veteran-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.

Our Home Defense Philosophy

         Let’s face it. A home invasion can be a VERY harrowing experience. Caught completely off guard, the likelihood of you being overwhelmed and full of adrenaline in a stressful situation is perfectly normal. The question is, what do you do in this stressful situation? How do you manage your body’s natural reaction of fight or flight? Do you have the fine motor skills necessary to open your gun safe? Can you even make it to the gun safe before you or a family member comes in contact with an intruder? These are very important questions. Questions that our products are designed to help you answer.

         With over 8,000 home invasions each year in the United States (source: ITS Tactical), it is safe to say that having a plan is a crucial piece of home defense; and that plan should be flexible, because there is no one way your home may be broken into. You need to be prepared for the unknown. Planning for a home invasion can be uncomfortable, as it should be. You must consider the worst case scenarios in order to plan for them. Flexibility is key, speed is paramount, and multiple points of defensive options could very well make a difference in a life threatening situation.  The more options you allow yourself, the better your odds of success. Tactical Walls products give you the flexibility to formulate your own plan, for your own home, and your own family.

        Put simply, our products are designed to give you a fighting chance. They allow you the flexibility to place the defensive tools necessary to protect your family wherever you think they will be most beneficial. Because we offer multiple styles and sizes, your options are limited only by your imagination. One basic template a lot of our customeres follow is: a larger primary staging solution in the bedroom, with two smaller secondary staging solutions located near the front and rear entrances to the home.

        While we may not have all the answers, we at Tactical Walls strive to offer plenty of varied elegant solutions classically designed with you in mind. Check out our shop all products page to see which combination of our products may work best for your home defense plan.

“And he said, The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my savior; thou savest me from violence. I will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.” 

– 2 Samuel 22:2-4 (KJV)
