Ballistic Gates

The FDC StrongWeld Defender is the gate of choice when utilities, sub-stations, and other high-risk facilities are looking for ballistic gates.  While bulletproof gates are not a reality currently, this is the closest thing on the market.  Built with ballistic-rated panels, this gate is built to reduce damage from firearms and other ballistic-type attacks on vulnerable facilities.

FERC security hardening and NERC security hardening continues to be a focal point at many power plants, substations and similar utility providers throughout the nation.  While power companies and power co-ops look for solutions to protect their facilities from these attacks, FDC has been building and installing StrongWeld Defender gate systems to get ahead of the problem.  These help satisfy the NERC CIP standards for physical perimeter security.
