Growing up in Israel, Omer became familiar with bombings and missile threats at a young age, but it wasn't until he moved his family to America that he truly felt threatened by gun crime. After witnessing the active shooter drills that his daughters participate in monthly, as part of their education, he felt compelled to come up with a safer, less traumatizing solution. Using his military training, background in government projects and 15 years in real estate, Omer developed Remo Doors. A recreation of the ‘Mamad' – the safe room that he grew up with, in Israel, Remo's bullet-resistant doors can turn any space into a safe protected sanctuary. Protected spaces are legally required to in Israel – from private homes to schools, each new building must have a designated space to shelter from bombs and chemical weapons. Omer's installations in America have received support from over 25 state senators including Ted Cruz, Kamala Harris and Charles Schumer.
