Defenshield partitions heighten security during upcoming Iraqi elections
January 6th, 2005
Defenshield Inc. announces deployment of its DS-181 bullet, blast and fragment resistant partitions to polling locations for the upcoming Iraqi elections.
Through a contract valued in excess of $250,000, Defenshield is providing a superior level of protection to US and Iraqi security forces, as well as the Iraqi voting public. These partitions, similar to other Defenshield units deployed by the Department of Justice, The Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense and civilian agencies provide the highest level of protection in a mobile, stand-alone device.
“Defenshield Inc. is proud to provide this level of protection to the Marine Corp and our Iraqi and coalition allies. This is an important deployment in a very hostile area. With 150,000 US Military personnel supporting this operation, protection from groups who wish to disrupt the democratic process through violence and intimidation is the top priority.” said Collins White, President of Defenshield Inc.
The Defenshield product line is certified up to NIJ Level III (assault rifles), NIJ Level IV (30-06 armor piercing), and is certified by the US State Department to Standard 01.01 for resistance to both 5.56mm and 7.62mm NATO rounds.
