Ballistic Shield

ballistic shieldIn a world of increasing threats, we all know physical security is a top concern. In the not too distant past, we learned about the vulnerability of electric substations when ballistic attacks took place. These attacks resulted in unprecedented power outages. Since then, many substations have been tasked with hardening their physical security at these locations.  The StrongWeld Defender creates a ballistic shield that protects your entrance from attacks.

Why StrongWeld Defender: Ballistic Shield?

The StrongWeld Defender series of ballistic gates is the premiere defense against ballistic attacks at substations, water treatment plants, natural gas processing plants, power plants and oil refineries. When paired with ballistic resistant walls, these gates complete an anti-ballistic perimeter that maximizes security at any location.

What makes the StrongWeld Defender so effective?
• Fully automated and access controlled (or manual)
• Obscures line-of-sight to hide ballistic targets
• Constructed from non-corrosive materials
• Engineered for wind-load
• Provides a MAXIMUM SECURITY solution
