What is a doomsday bunker? Have you ever thought about the apocalypse? Or a worldwide virus breakout?
If your answer is “Yes”, then you’ve probably thought about where you’re going to stay and live for that time. Somewhere safe, I assume?
This video shows how elaborate you can be with hidden bunkers!
Bunkers are used and created for global or national outbreaks. They can be underground, above ground, or anywhere.
Bunkers are great for having when a disease such as Coronavirus hits and there is nowhere else to go. They are also useful for when there is a tornado, intruder, or any type of disaster.
Many people have bunkers for tornadoes, outbreaks, and more. Some places even have turned it into a luxury fad.

Though, underground bunkers can get super expensive. So, how else can you protect your family through a crisis or apocalypse?
One way that you can put more protection into your home is by adding ballistic glass to your windows.
What is Ballistic Glass?
Ballistic glass is not “Bullet proof” glass, because bulletproof glass does not exist. However, it is extremely resistant glass that will stop bullets from entering your home.
Unlike Hollywood expectations, the ballistic glass will not keep all of the bullets out. Once it continues to be shot at, then it will start to break. However, it does greatly slow down the possibility of home invasion and entry.
You could even use the ballistic glass to put in jewelry stores, business buildings, and even car windows.
Ballistic glass is a great addition to any home or survival bunker.
Also, if you’re worried about bacteria forming inside your bunker or hideout, have no fear!
There is also an antimicrobial glass that eliminates bacteria when they come in contact.
The antimicrobial glass is great for eliminating bacteria from glass objects that we touch daily. I mean, think about it! How often do you touch something that’s super public and a lot of people touch and then touch your phone?
Antimicrobial glass is great for your survival bunker.
How does the Antimicrobial Glass Work?
The glass has an antibacterial agent called ionic silver, which is put into the glass for sustained activity.
The glass has unique materials and contents that kill the bacteria that is placed upon the glass.
This video explains how the antimicrobial glass kills the bacteria. They use the glass on phones with a touch screen, but the glass can be used for many other glass objects.

Creating a safe space is important for any emergency.
If you do want to go the dooms-day bunker route, then you can certainly modify it and make it luxurious!
You can use our dielectric mirror to create a Hidden Television. This is great for saving wall space!
A Hidden Television is a TV with a mirror in front of it. The mirror in front of the TV is an optical grade dielectric mirror that resembles a standard mirror when the TV is turned off. Therefore, creating a beautiful framed mirror in your bunker.
But, when the TV is turned on, you have a framed TV! There you have it! A mirror and a TV in the same space!

A smart mirror is great for a doomsday bunker because similar to the TV mirror, you are saving wall space and getting multiple uses out of the mirror.
