ArmArrest Ballistic Switchgear
Ensures protection against security threats
Integrating AZZ’s ArmArrestTM ballistic line of protection to any of AZZ’s line of switchgear products ensures protection against security threats in substations and other vulnerable locations. We offer ballistic protection for all of our PowerAisle® family of medium voltage switchgear including our arc-resistant switchgear, and our emergency mobile substations. Our standard offering meets UL-752 Level 4 rating, but with the ability to manufacture up to UL-752 Level 8 rating, we can offer many options to best suit your needs.
AZZ Switchgear with ArmArrest offers protection from grade to ceiling against weapons ranging from small handguns to automatic assault weapons utilizing armor piercing rounds. A continuous sheet of ballistic-rated steel is used for each wall, creating a seamless ballistic barrier. In addition to our bulletproof walls, AZZ’s Switchgear with ArmArrest implements ballistic-rated doors, forced entry hinges, and innovative solutions to protect areas of vulnerability. Like all of our switchgear, our ballistic buildings are factory fabricated, tested, and assembled prior to delivering it to site.
For our utility partners – With infrastructure hardening now becoming a mandate per NERC CIP-014-01, it is imperative to start looking at the security threats to all of your substations. AZZ’s robust ballistic switchgear offering can help mitigate eminent security risks and help you meet future mandates.
