Enhancing Security Measures at Air Force Bases
Explosive blast safety is a top priority for those in the military. At high-risk Air Force bases, security forces guard both indoor and outdoor security checkpoints to ensure that everyone who moves in and out is authorized. Air Force security checkpoint equipment increases safety for security personnel by protecting against bullets, explosive blasts, and other high-impact threats, with the added benefit of window systems that provide clearer sightlines without unnecessary exposure.
This level of blasts and fragmentation preparedness is essential for inside and outside military facilities. Durable blast mitigation ballistic equipment for Air Force bases feature excellent mobility and visibility, allowing personnel to move freely and see potential threats from all directions. This type of equipment can also serve as a deterrent for attackers because it prevents easy access.
Whether you need a specific type of workstation, partition or barrier, Defenshield will customize a solution that offers the proper caliber of protection and blends in with the environment. We use Camography™ to tailor ballistic furniture and barriers, so they fit the workspace aesthetically.
Ballistically Certified Entry Control Point Equipment
You can order custom blast resistant design entry control point security equipment for Air Force bases by partnering with Defenshield. We offer units in bulk to ensure that your Air Force National Guard security personnel receive the support they need. Defenshield’s high-visibility MDFP and SafePoint® wall panel armor systems are designed for both indoor and outdoor use, and every unit is tested for blast protection in combat and highly secure areas.
Enhanced with solid ATV tires and a powder-coated finish, our ballistic-resistant blast protection shields for Air Force security are durable and withstand the elements. In addition to holding up against gunfire and flying fragments with their blast-resistant design, MDFPs can handle harsh weather and resist the damaging effects of rust. These units provide the ideal cover during attacks, allowing you to defend the base and see threats coming from greater distances.
Defenshield also offers a variety of accessories for fighting positions and workstations. We have desk units to help security personnel stay safe as they do other tasks, and our awnings provide top coverage in areas with high blast risks from explosive devices. Our Bridgeport armor panels connect multiple MDFP units, which extends their range of protection. Searchlights, heaters and towable bars also give security forces advantages in outdoor military environments like the National Guard.
