Cool Stuff Being Made: Baker Ballistics

By January 26, 2008Cool Stuff Being Made

Threats to law enforcement come in many forms, and the Baker Batshield® stands in their way, especially in dangerous situations involving ammunition and explosives.

In this week’s “Cool Stuff Being Made,” Rick Armellino, director and CEO, shows us the manufacturing process behind the shield, walking us through the highlights of Baker Ballistics’ Lancaster, PA, plant.

The Baker ballistics shield works like a collapsable tent — unfurl the flexible armor from its packed state and boom – protection from ammunitions fire and explosions. The product was born out of the 30 year evolution of tactical “Bunker” shields, first introduced to American law enforcement in the early 1980’s.

Watch how it’s made and don’t miss the product demo!

To the good people at Pennsylvania Cable Network, we extend cordial regards for sending this latest manufacturing documentary our way.

And speaking of video…Baker Ballistics has an entire webpage devoted to video of its products in action. Active Shooter Response…High Risk Vehicle Stop…Hand/Long Gun Deployment…

Did we mention it’s Cool Stuff?

    It would seem that all police departments–and school security and adminstrators should have a Batshield, or several, Batshields immediately available. Remember Columbine, Virginia Tech, etc.Quite possibly, at least some if not most of the deaths and injuries could have been prevented.I can see no reason why at least every police department wouldn’t have them in every patrol car.
