Bullet Proof Protection - Fit-out Expertise

CRDS undertake internal fit-out/build of numerous fully defended structures to prevent the escape of rounds. Initially the sizing and shape of the structure ensures ricochet cannot occur. Our choice of materials for bullet proof protection, anti-ricochet duty and acoustic performance are based upon test performance results and cost effectiveness.
