Historic Capabilities


  • Historic replication
  • Re-use of historic materials
  • Modification of existing historic materials
  • Reuse of historic hardware and components
  • Finish matching, and refinishing when needed
  • Wood profile or moulding matching

Case Study

With our bullet resistant wood frames and jambs we
can utilize three different approaches for historical
replication or refurbishment:
• Reuse existing historic hardware
• Recreate mouldings and profiles
• Re-purpose salvageable components

In this particular case, initial drawings were created
to the exact specs of the original historic windows
and doors. SafeWood Designs engineering team then
worked to recreate the windows and doors with
bullet resistant security upgrades while still
maintaining the original historic look and feel.
