Ballistic Protection

Physically Securing Substations and Critical Assets

The Electric Utility Industry has been around for over a hundred years, not at all much longer than Southern States has been providing products to the Utility Industry.  During this time, our products and service offerings have evolved based on our customers' continually changing needs and requirements.  This ability and willingness to fill our customers unsupported needs has led us to our newest offerings: Ballisti-Wall® and Ballisti-Cover® .

Both are constructed from multiple layers of woven fiberglass encapsulated with a proprietary resin system that produces a rigid panel with exceptional ballistic resistance.  The unique composite matrix of the panels allow for the retention of the projectile to avoid potentially hazardous ricochet.  These protection products offer ballistic resistant security with the additional performance advantages of durability, corrosion resistance, electrical non-conductivity, low thermal conductivity and light weight

Southern States has been providing solutions and services for the utility industry for nearly 100 years.  Throughout this time, products, applications, and solutions have evolved along beside the electric utility industry, advancing to continue to meet customer needs and requirements.  It’s because of the ever-evolving Southern States culture that now we are able to present our ballistic resistant products: Ballisti-Wall® and Ballisti-Cover®.

These ballistic resistant wall panels have been custom engineered and designed to prevent damage from projectiles. They offer high ballistic resistance and many significant advantages over any other commonly used products. 

Both Ballisti-Wall® and Ballisti-Cover® are constructed from panels composed of multiple layers of woven fiberglass encapsulated with a proprietary resin system that produces a rigid panel that has exceptional ballistic resistance by retaining hazardous projectiles and avoiding ricochet.        

Ballisti-Wall®  

 Custom designed in modular sections that are easily erected and removed with minimal effort and equipment.  Consists of ballistic panels attached to steel or fiberglass wide flange beams.  Panels are overlapped and staggered to ensure total protection and consistent airflow.   Also provides the ability to replace individual panels without removing entire section. 

Ballisti-Cover® 

Custom designed solution for protection of individual substation assets such as control houses, breaker/transformer control cabinets, SCADA / communications cabinets and other hard to replace or repair items that are critical for equipment operation.

Designed for maximum security, easy installation and removal.
