Army Entry Control Point Solutions

Entry point protection is the first step in a comprehensive site defense plan and military installations. Entry control point (ECP) must be secure enough to screen personnel and vehicles without sacrificing appearance and portability.

The U.S. Army takes on critical military duties and protects the country from threats. While working in combat zones or training at high-security military bases, military personnel need access to protective equipment that can hold up against any attack or impact. Defenshield physical security equipment for U.S. Army bases is ballistically rated for firearms, blasts and flying fragments so that military personnel can do daily tasks, monitor threats and feel safer on the job.

Our physical security solutions and ballistic equipment for Army bases secure high-risk control points on military property. With Mobile Defensive Fighting Positions (MDFP®) and SafePoint® equipment, your personnel can move freely and respond more quickly to violent and terrorist attacks. Defenseshild also provides custom-engineered solutions to meet specific site or threat needs.

Physical Security Solutions for Army Bases

If you’re looking for a security solution that can blend into the environment without sacrificing durability and performance, Defenshield can deliver custom equipment for your organization in bulk. High-quality Army base security equipment is essential at Army bases that are at risk of violent attacks each day. During wartime or under the threat of terrorism, ballistic-resistant shields for Army security can be great defensive resources from unauthorized personnel, weapons, explosives, trespassing vehicles and other high-risk threats.

Physical security solutions can help protect entrances, exits and security checkpoints from firearm threats and forced entries. Sergeants of the Guard can use physical barriers at access control points to manage visitors, personnel and traffic flow while screening each person for access. An active vehicle barrier offers additional protection against traffic violations or mobilized threats near the base. Entry control point officers can also rely on physical security solutions to simplify communication with the Sergeant of the Guard and send immediate notification in the event of a security breach.

As people move in and out of the military base, MDFP units make it easier to monitor situations, deter threats and prepare for issues that may arise. You can also purchase security options for rooftops and overwatch positions so your personnel can monitor dangers without exposing themselves to the risk of blasts or sniper attacks.

Modular Army base entrance safety equipment, including ballistic podiums and armor systems, adds a layer of front-line protection against pistol and rifle rounds, blast and fragments.

Ballistic-Resistant Shields for Entry Control Points

Defenshield supports Army base applications with ballistic-resistant MDFP units and SafePoint equipment, accessories and armored barrier systems. MDFP units from Defenshield are the ultimate defense mechanisms against Army base threats. They’re maneuverable with durable tires for reliable transportation and come with reinforced glass so that security forces can scan the environment from all directions. Our selection of MDFP units includes the DS-180 Series model, DS-190 Series model and DS-390 Series model. Plus, our sturdiest units can handle up to 30-06 armor-piercing rounds.

Our security entry point protection equipment supports Army personnel and applications from full-body threats while keeping clear visibility for comprehensive security. Our experience providing life-saving protective ballistic resistance and physical barriers for Marine base security and entry checkpoints gives us the edge to understand your base’s specific needs according to risk and application.

MDFP units are ideal for indoor and outdoor security measures, and they can withstand high-impact blasts, flying debris, fragments and gunshot and sniper rifle attack. With a sound barrier in place, Army personnel has more time to assess an incoming threat and react accordingly from a safe distance.

Because ballistic levels vary, you should always defer to the most recent published standards, as performance requirements are subject to change. Ballistic certification is a rigorous, comprehensive review of a piece of equipment’s resistance, and tests are always performed by recognized third-party ballistics testing facilities and laboratories. These standards ensure every piece of ballistic-rated protection is safe, configured correctly and free of vulnerabilities like gaps or inadequate construction.

The two main certifications for ballistic-resistant protective materials come from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), a U.S. Department of Justice agency with 0108.01 Standard for Ballistic Resistant Protective Materials, and the Department of State (DOS) Standard-STD-01.01.

Current ballistic levels also meet most or all of the following organizational standards:

Along with a wide range of MDFPs, Defenshield offers Barrier Cap™ equipment, desk units, swivel casters, searchlights, heaters, tow bars and communication systems for security applications. We also use Camography™ to customize your equipment to fit the environment. The Camography layer has no impact on the Army base security entry point’s defenses. It lets units customize the visual appearance for specific concealment needs, visual appeal in non-combat installations or to match any chosen color or pattern. Image samples are also available.

All our physical security equipment for Army base entry points is enhanced with a powder-coat finish, which minimizes rust and wear and tear from the elements. We engineer, manufacture and test every product to ensure it meets the proper standards for ballistic ratings. This gives you confidence that our equipment will deliver the optimal performance when your security forces need it most.
