Ballistic Equipment for Places of Worship

In recent years, the demand for improved security solutions in religious organizations has grown more urgent than ever. Places historically linked with safety and shelter have become more vulnerable to unexpected dangers. This shift has triggered a critical evaluation of the mechanisms to protect persons within their gates.

The pursuit of sturdy, dependable protection has led to innovative safety technology customized to specific surroundings, emphasizing the significance of proactive security measures to safeguard the safety of congregants.

At Defenshield, we believe that places of worship should be safe and support efforts to uphold that belief with bulletproof doors, windows and panels, which will help make your members’ lives safer.

Bulletproof Security for Churches, Synagogues and Other Places of Worship

Several defensive measures are available to help religious institutions protect their congregation and staff. Bulletproof materials can withstand gunshots in the event of an active shooter situation. Forced entry doors and windows are available to defend building exteriors or entrance points within a space against physical manipulation.

Windows Systems

One element of security to consider is installing bullet-resistant glass. Defenshield Inc. sells glass that is half the weight of ordinary glass and up to 10 times more resistant against bullets. The defensive glass comes in various thicknesses and is mounted on the interiors of churches and synagogues to provide a transparent barrier against attackers. Choose from Level I to Level IV bullet-resistant glass pane windows to protect congregations and personnel.
