Yes, make them dedicated windows.
See the Elisp manual, node `Dedicated Windows'.
See the Elisp manual, node `Choosing Window'.

The easiest way to do this is to use `special-display-regexps', giving it a
regexp that matches all buffer names. By default, a "special-display" buffer is
shown in a dedicated window.
