Our exclusive ARMOR-LOK™ design offers seamless 360-degree protection in all areas of the structure including doors, windows, and gunport systems. ARMOR-LOK incorporates protection to all vulnerable areas of a system, such as the seams where the armor panels meet, the gaps in the corners, and the seams between the window and wall junctions. Any vulnerable area is enhanced with custom-fabricated mullions, overlaps, or additional armor pieces to supply COMPLETE ballistic protection. Compromise is not an option.

Blast Resistance

Tested Against 10,000 Pounds of TNT

PROTECH® Armor Systems provides comprehensive blast analyses to determine the safe standoff distances for many kinds of explosive threats. We analyze threats ranging from 100 to over 10,000 pounds of TNT, including occupant survivability. Our analyses are designed to ensure that the occupant not only survives an attack, but is able to respond effectively.

We also provide Safe Standoff Distances (SSD) so the structure meets the required protection when a given standoff is employed. Analyses are available for installation tie-down considerations, tower use, and foundation design.
