Airport Physical Security Equipment
Security is a critical component of airport management as airports remain a target of choice for jihadist networks, terrorist groups and other violent individuals. Strong security systems maximize the protection of workers, flyers and assets so everyone can feel safer in the airport. Many airports have begun incorporating physical security components from Defenshield, which provides ballistic protection while not looking out of place. For example, Defenshield offers durable bulletproof glass for airports, which can help save lives during threatening situations.

Ballistic-Rated Security Equipment for Train Stations
Because trains are such a popular method of travel, there are risks at every train station. Defenshield’s physical security solutions for train stations protect employees and passengers from gun threats. From mobile defensive fighting equipment to ballistic furniture, Defenshield has multiple products that can blend in with the environment while offering reliable protection for guards.
Train Station Safety
Today’s train stations are often at risk with a growing prevalence of terrorist threats, theft and other security issues. In high-risk areas, safety is the first priority, and we offer a variety of equipment to help transportation authorities meet the necessary standards.
While transportation ballistic solutions fit airport settings, Defenshield bulletproof security systems can also benefit populated train stations. Combined with careful monitoring and the proper protective gear, bulletproof barriers for airports and train stations can help law enforcement and security personnel secure their stations against violent intruders.
Train Station Physical Security Solutions
Defenshield’s work stations, guard systems and accessories are well-suited for train station security. SafePoint® shield systems offer multipurpose functionality, stopping bullets while serving as convenient desk stations. Train station security personnel can use these guard stations to increase their safety and response times in a security emergency.
Shield systems also offer maximum visibility, which is ideal for large train stations with greater volumes of people. Security guards can see everything that’s going on around them through reinforced glass without sacrificing their safety. Other products designed to meet train station security standards range from communication systems to search lights and full glass partitions.

Ballistic-rated glass for airports and train stations protects against firearm threats, so security personnel can respond to emergencies quickly and save more lives in the process. Defenshield provides a variety of train station and airport bulletproof shields, including custom security solutions for the transportation industry.
