Guard Shacks with Ballistic Ratings! 800-326-4403
Demand for Ballistic Rated Modular Buildings has prompted many modular building manufacturers to hire sales managers and create entire divisions for Welded Steel and Ballistic Guard Shacks!. Ballistic Buildings manufacturers fabricate a multitude of buildings for the military, for land, ports of entry, and any access control points all around the world. Military bases, chemical plants, and anywhere where security is a concern. Manufacturers fabricate buildings that protect our soldiers, guard, guards at various different access control points leading into and out of our country.
One of the biggest pushes forward for this ballistic building indistry was definitely 9/11 when our country was attacked and the push came forward to increase our security around all our borders. So back modular building manufacturers really stepped up quickly to increase the fabricating of ballistic buildings and guard shacks and to protect our borders.
We are definitely proud that we’re a part of the protection of all our military folks around the world. Our ballistic buildings have been shipped, not only at our bases here in our country, but around the world. And I’m just happy that we were part of that, that we’re saving and protecting lives.
Let’s look at the different types of ballistic glass that can be installed in a ballistic guard shack! The first one is for an upper level three. This is by far the most popular in ballistic rated guard shacks. Probably nine out of every 10 ballistic buildings, it’s fair to say, is a level three. The glass is a little over an inch thick in most cases, unless it’s insulated. That protects against all handguns, five shots and a 12 inch square. It can handle that. The second type of ballistic glass is a level eight, and this is about one and three quarter inches thick. They go up to three and a quarter to three and five, six, six inches thick when they are insulated. The level eight can handle three 008, which shoots 147 green bullet at 2700 feet per second. So this piece of glass can handle five shots and a 12 inch by 12 inch square. It is installed for special occasions where a client needs that extra level of security.
