Ballistic protection for electric substations is vital to safeguard critical infrastructure. Substations are susceptible to physical attacks, such as vandalism and sabotage, which can disrupt power supply to large areas, posing risks to public safety and the economy. Protecting them ensures the power grid's reliability, deters potential attackers, and supports national security. 

Substation barriers can be aesthetically pleasing while delivering superior protection. In this webinar learn about the VANQUISH Ballistic Non-Conductive Solution, which provides ballistic resistance without changing the original system's appearance or functionality. Their ballistic panels are manufactured using specially constructed glass reinforcements in a proprietary resin matrix and meet a UL 94 V-0 flammability rating. When struck by a bullet or other projectile, the panels absorb the energy and stop the projectile.
