Presidential Lift Federal Ballistic Resistant Podium

The Presidential Federal Ballistic Resistant Podium is the only ballistic resistant podium in the market with “Float Technology”.  This podium creates a comfortable presentation vehicle for presenters of all heights.  At the touch of a button, the powerful electronic lift mechanism will smoothly and silently adjust the height up and down a full 15.75″ for a wide range of work surface heights.  Our proprietary Float Technology allows the corners to expand and contract to match the compound angles throughout the lift process for a beautiful consistent appearance.  This feature creates a uniformity that does not discriminate in height.  Tall, short, and everyone in between can stand confidently as the podium can easily adjust to your desired height without notice from the audience.

Your presenters will also have an extra line of defense should situations escalate, because the front of the Presidential Federal Lift is lined with NIJ ballistic rated materials.  Although completely concealed in a clean finished look, this NIJ protection will be available to the presenter at every height position offered by this podium.

Additional features include an abundant use of the hardwood species of your choice, fabric covered top, supple leather covered handrails, solid hardwood drop down work surface which can be set at an angled or flat position, work surface also lifts for access to hidden materials inside, flat reveal above the work surface which is perfect for microphones and/or lights, grommet holes throughout to allow for convenient cable management, full depth shelf inside podium body for storage organization, and caster for convenient maneuverability.

Optional laser engraved seal also available with the artwork of your logo, call for information.
