Update: Ideal’s First Ballistic Barrier Installation is Moving Along

Ballistic Barrier

Hello, from sunny Tampa, Florida. The sun is shining, the weather is warm and the first ever Ideal Utility Services’ ballistic barrier installation is moving along smoothly.

Our very own Gary Patterson and Loren Venegas made their way down to the Sunshine State, along the ballistic barrier, to oversee the first portion of the installation at the Florida Utility company in Tampa. Here are some of the pictures from the first beams going into the Tampa soil and the first panels from sunbathing in the Florida warmth:

The project is moving along smoothly and the mid-March completion date is still looking very good. For more information and updates on our ballistic barriers, please contact us today at Ideal Utility Services.

From the frigid temperatures and cold winds of Detroit, Michigan to the warm weather and sunny skies of Tampa, Florida, the first ever Ballistic Barrier from Ideal Utility Services has made its way down to the Sunshine State where it’s set to be permanently installed this week.

But it wasn’t as simple as shipping a package.

Ideal’s first full ballistic barrier was quite the load. Weighing approximately 42,000 lbs. each, five trucks loaded up, drove down and delivered the 454 feet of barrier in just a couple days, trucking through the elements to get to Tampa right on time to start the installation on Tuesday.

Check out what the freight looked like before it made its way down south:

While Ideal Utility Services’ first full ballistic barrier is heading for a lifetime of sunshine and warm weather in Florida, the first ever installed panel from Ideal will remain right here where the Ideal Group was started: Detroit, Michigan.

Now, Detroit may not have the heat and the shine of Tampa but when you’re looking for the home of a tough, durable, never-say-die product, there isn’t a better place on earth than the Motor City.

Check out the installation of our first ballistic barrier panel outside of our Detroit campus:
