You’ve worked hard to build a solid financial footing and great facilities for your company, so you want to be sure that everything is protected. Accidents and disasters can and do happen, and if you aren’t adequately prepared, it could leave you in financial ruin or affect the day to day operations of the company. If you have key electrical and substation installations you’ll need a reliable ballistic barrier to protect them, as it is a crucial element of sound financial planning and protection.

There was an incident in which just a few shots from a high-powered rifle knocked out an electric power substation in rural south-central Utah, cutting off electricity to 13,000 customers for a day and forcing the utility to wait at least six months until the station’s disabled transformer was repaired or replaced. Don’t let something like this happen to your electrical substation, your company, or your community.

Ideal Utility Services has the industry’s most innovative ballistic barrier, which is designed to protect from all kinds of unforeseen terrorist attacks and disasters.

IUS is the creator and manufacturer of these state-of-the-art, U.S. Steel, UL-752 & CIP-014 certified, critical asset protection barriers which are made to withstand and prevent terrorist attacks on electrical substations and bulk power systems. The barriers are designed to protect your key installations from ballistic attacks, fire, ramming, and climbing, while offering ventilation through the system that allows airflow.

Additionally, our ballistic barrier system is customizable in both build and installation options, as it can be installed as close as 18″ from the critical asset. Each panel also has the ability to be removed and replaced, if necessary. This custom treatment is just one of the many features that separate our ballistic barrier from the competitors, most of which are still using concrete wall panels.
