Only The Best Will Do
Stronghold shields are professionally manufactured in the U.S.A. with ISO 9001 quality controls using advanced lightweight ballistic materials, aircraft grade hardware, and impact adsorbent padded arm and handholds.
The core is made up of an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) designed to capture projectiles. All materials used in the shield are non-toxic and no-smell, making them suitable for any location. Given their defensive nature, they can also be left unattended in a child friendly environment.
Ballistic protection ratings are set by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ, an agency of the United States Department of Justice) Our shields are certified at a Level III protection covering pistols and High-Powered Rifles, which includes the AR-15. Level III protection is our minimum standard. Others products only meet a lessor threat level up to a NIJ Level IIIA which only protects against hand guns.

The patent pending design results in an inconspicuous shield and Level III performance, while allowing for easy deployment from either a horizontal or vertical surfaces. For example; it can lay on a desk concealed in the form of a large desk calendar or blotter or it can be hung on a wall with any imaginable covering such as a custom image, whiteboard, poster, artwork, or map.
Arm and Handholds on Back
In order to maximize the ability to deploy a shield, we have built in multiple strap configurations on the back of each core. This flexible configuration allows for our shields to be held vertically, horizontally, or used by multiple people at once.
