Product: ArmorGuard

ArmorGuard adds a level of protection never before available in security fence barriers. This tested and proven bullet-resistant ballistic fiberglass laminate provides protection from a wide range of small-arms fire.


Panels

ArmorGuard panels feature multiple ply ballistic fiberglass laminate produced from ballistic fiberglass impregnated with a thermo set polyester resin binder. This process creates a barrier that allows bullets to penetrate into the material, but not pass through.

Guardian Unions

Extruded aluminum Guardian Unions, with panel brackets, secure the security mesh panels to horizontal rails within the Guardian Fence System®. The GU BT-S Guardian Union is secured with bolted steel straps, maintaining high strength in the fence system.

Posts and Rails

Panels are affixed to steel rails, which are attached to the steel posts. This modular configuration allows for fast installation - and means that exact post spacings are not a requirement!

Gates

Choose from a wide range of gate styles, including pedestrian and drive Swing gates, as well as Slide and Cantilever gates.

Benefits

Ballistic Resistance

Bullets are imbedded into the multi-ply layers, rather than ricocheted as they would be with steel or aluminum armor, providing greater protection for people and property. Choose from a wide range of material thicknesses to meet risk-based requirements.

Security Integration

Installed with the Guardian Fence System, an ArmorGuard barrier allows for seamless integration with intrusion detection, surveillance and access control.

Modular Design

The modular design of the Guardian system allows for easy and affordable installation, upgrade, repair and maintenance.

Architectural Mesh Options

An additional powder-coated security mesh, such as LouverMesh, can be easily integrated into the design, providing a more aesthetically-pleasing appearance to the barrier, while maintaining ballistic protection and anti-cut, anti-climb resistance.
