Why Go Modular With Your Ballistic Building Project?
New buildings in high-risk areas require a little more protection and safety than your standard construction project. Ballistic-rated buildings help to mitigate these risks by creating a protective barrier between the objects inside and the threat. Whenever someone considers a ‘high-risk’ area, there are likely a few primary examples of what comes to mind: government buildings, military bases, sports complexes, etc.
These are areas that are at high risk for a terror attack, needing (ballistic) bullet resistance for many parts of their facility. However, there a wide range of industries and environments that can require or be improved through the use of ballistic-rated construction and materials.
For example, there are a number of industries that experience a potential blast hazard in their manufacturing process: petrochemical, energy, and any production process that uses combustible gases & chemicals. Additionally, exterior buildings that may be exposed to high winds can also require ballistic-rated features like impact-resistant doors and windows due to the possibility of high-speed projectiles hitting the building. For all of these environments, these industries and government organizations will use ballistic-rated buildings for many applications including guardhouses, breakrooms, engineering offices, bathrooms, locker rooms, etc.
