High Security Panels Resistant to AK47 Rifle Ammunition
British manufacturer Securiclad announced the launch of a family of ballistic high security panels under the brand name BALLISTICLAD on 27 April.
The enhanced ballistic protection system has been tested to EN1522/23 (1999) FB5 and FB6 ratings, meaning it is certified to withstand firepower from AK47s and other assault rifles. The certification has been achieved for both walling and enclosures, enabling BALLISTICLAD to offer a ballistic enclosure in which joints, ancillaries and interfaces are certified. A narrow retro-fit ballistic liner panel option is available as well as a ballistic and (LPS) 1175 Security Rating (SR) 4 security option that comes with fire rating, security rating, acoustic rating and thermal efficiency.
The BALLISTICLAD system can be used to bolster the protection of areas such as gatehouses, panic rooms, perimeter buildings, guard huts and control rooms and has been designed to safeguard assets at critical national infrastructure sites, nuclear facilities, utilities sites, military installations, government buildings and more.
“In the current security climate, it’s vital that a sensitive facility’s critical areas, such as server rooms or control equipment as well as the organisation’s staff are safeguarded from attack – and that includes criminals using firearms to gain access, or damage an installation’s infrastructure,” Mike McColl, Managing Director at Securiclad, explained.
