Armor At Hand™ manufactures light weight ballistic shields in the USA under the Stronghold Shield™ brand. Final assembly is performed by an IOS 9001 quality certified manufacturer with a long history in the defense industry. The shields are used for protection in schools, office buildings, and places of worship, during any attack scenario.
Our patent pending design can be thought of as an inconspicuous life preserver, concealed but always available to assist in any attack to preserve life until law enforcement arrives. They blend into the surrounding environment, reducing anxiety or concern about their potential need while offering certified N.I.J. level III protection from common pistols and high-powered rifle including the AR-15.
Immediate access to protection is the key to saving lives. Sadly the statics show, victims only have a fraction of a second to preserve life during an attack. Armor At Hand products are just that… at hand and available where people spend most of their time. Our most effective shield sits on top of a desk disguised as a desk top calendar.
It’s the placement and the lightweight defensive capabilities of the shield that allows for an immediate response to any threat. Our approach is simple; “Lift and Protect” then “Move and Preserve Life”. With a shield on the desk, simply lift the edge for instant cover. The patent pending Stronghold Shield is the only product with this instant capability. If placed on a wall as a white board or art print, simply lift or pull from its mounts to be immediately deployed.
Mobility further sets it apart from all other security solutions which seek to fortify rooms and are permanently fixed to a single location. We match the countless threat scenarios with a mobile defense that can be used instantly or moved to wherever a threat develops.
The shield use varies by person and situation, from a standalone defensive solution to the protection and evacuation of groups or offense options. Regardless of the threat or its location, useful protection is now at hand.
