dFENCE provides a rapidly deployable ballistic resistant barrier to provide protection and help secure a “shelter in place” area during an armed intrusion. dFENCE is ideal for use in protecting staff, customers and children in;
dFENCE is an movable ballistic resistant barrier (Level L3 - Handgun, shotgun and .223 calibres) taking the form of an aesthetically modern and functional shelving unit at all other times. The dFENCE unit can be moved easily into place on its inbuilt multi directional wheels during an armed intrusion with no pre preparation of the defensive position. Once in the desired position, the dFENCE unit is simply locked into place in front of a door or in the defensive position to provide a ballistic resistant and difficult to circumvent barrier. The ability to delay, impede or deflect an armed offender to another area during such armed intrusions is an important factor in survival. The dFENCE shelving system provides this important time and space factor to help survive such an incident and allow emergency services time to respond. The dFENCE unit provides a cost effective, flexible solution instead of expensive retrofitting of doors, wall and windows of facilities. This effectively means the your site can evolve ,change and grow without added retrofitting expense as the dFENCE system provides a flexible defensive solution.
The dFENCE shelving system is not limited to that application and could be used in a large variety of ballistic resistant barrier and/or shielding applications, for example, it could be used across a hallway to provide a defensive firing position protecting a given safe or shelter in place area or to provide a containment strategy against the offender(s).
The fundamental premise of the dFENCE system is it is used in a defensive manner to fortify and seriously delay an armed gunmen or violent offender(s) getting entry via a doorway into a given location, thus sheltering the user or in the case of an educational facility, young adults or children in a safe area until law enforcement or other assistance arrives.

The dFENCE shelving system does not require any pre preparation of a given final defensive location and can effectively be used anywhere. However it is prudent when selecting a dFENCE unit position that the following considerations be made;
During an armed intrusion the fundamentals of a normal evacuation are reversed and instead of evacuating to a pre determined Evacuation Assembly Area(s), people are asked or trained to “shelter in place”. This is to limit the exposure of persons/groups to the offender(s) weapons. The dFENCE unit(s) should be placed in pre determined safe zones that have the following characteristics;
The dFENCE shelving system can also be used as a defensive barrier that an armed responder can use as a defensive position. The dFENCE unit can be moved into a hallway or nominated position and locked into place. The armed responder can then take cover behind the dFENCE unit providing concealment and a viable defensive position to impede or negate further movement of the offender(s) into that given space.
