SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Ballistic Furniture Systems has developed an industry-first ballistic barrier system for furniture used by the general public.
“World events are pushing acts of terrorism closer to our shores, and domestic acts of gun violence have become all too frequent”
The uniquely designed bullet-absorbing technology is integrated into high-quality furniture during the manufacturing process with the sole intent of shielding the user in the event of gunfire in the public space.
“World events are pushing acts of terrorism closer to our shores, and domestic acts of gun violence have become all too frequent,” said Jeffrey Isquith, Founder and CEO of Ballistic Furniture Systems. “Who is exposed? Unfortunately, the general public is.”
The principals of Ballistic Furniture Systems have more than 25 years of experience with the design, manufacture and sale of furniture to commercial markets. The unique application of the ballistic barrier technology does not affect the appearance of the furniture and is invisible to users.
The founders of the company have been providing some of the highest-quality furniture located in public areas throughout the world, such as in hospitals, corporate settings, places of worship and government buildings. Given the brazen gun violence now commonly seen in the public space, there is a growing need to equip the furniture to shield the public from harm while helping to increase the odds of survival.
The Ballistic Furniture Systems™ product offers very capable protection from the impact of a variety of bullets, including calibers ranging from 9mm to .44 magnum.
“What is equally impressive is that technology has no effect on the comfort or look of the furniture. It’s simply hidden inside,” Isquith said. “But that invisible barrier is what can save lives – and that is our No. 1 goal.”
