Ballistic Equipment for Schools & Universities

Due to possible security threats schools and universities may face, utilizing effective life-saving ballistic equipment for protection is paramount. Schools and universities are institutions attended and staffed by unprotected and unarmed civilians. Durable, mobile equipment with enhanced capabilities can provide head-to-toe protection. Two factors play a role in civilian gunfire defense — inadequate brick-and-mortar defense and a lack of personal armor.

During mass shootings or gunfire threats, people seek shielding from brick-and-mortar structures or under tables. Finding an adequate corner or wall in time is often challenging in these situations. Another worrying factor is that the collective school body doesn’t wear personal body armor. These two combined create a weak security defense for schools.

Creating a School Shooting Defense Plan With Ballistic Equipment

Incorporating school shooting safety products starts with an effective plan. Parents, the school board and other bodies have vested interests in the safety of schools and a collective stance against shooting defense aids for quicker, more effective results.

Employ combat-proven, robust Defenshield Safety Desks, Safety Benches and bulletproof partitions around school entrances and along corridors to help keep the collective school body safe while waiting for law enforcement. Request assistance from the school board and resource offices to help you keep your school environment safe for scholars, educators and faculty.

When incorporating any armor system, seek two crucial certifications from the manufacturer:

These tests and certifications are rigorous, testing the armor and the system. Schools must be aware of these certifications and only partner with a ballistic resistance manufacturer whose solutions have undergone both tests and meet both standards.
