Barrier technology integrated into airport furnishings

Arconas, designer and manufacturer of furniture for airports and public spaces, has teamed up with Amulet Ballistic Barriers to integrate Amulet´s bullet-absorbing technology into airport seating, Amulet Protective Technologies, Inc. said.

The furniture line is a first for the global airport industry, and is being unveiled at the international Passenger Terminal Expo 2017 in Amsterdam this week.

The “invisible” barrier technology is integrated during the manufacturing process, and is designed to protect human lives from gunfire or explosive devices without affecting the design, appearance, or comfort of the airport seating.

Amulet Ballistic Barriers are designed to be uniquely compatible with interior furnishings and exceed US National Institute of Justice as well as Underwriters Laboratories performance criteria for handgun, rifle, and explosive-device threats.
