LifeGuard Desks

LifeGuard Desks

The only earthquake protection system on the market that can withstand a multi-story building collapse, LifeGuard Structures are resistant to high-velocity hazards such as earthquakes, blasts and even bullets.

LifeGuard Desks

In classrooms equipped with LifeGuard, sheltering under your desk actually means something. The desks protect children and teachers from flying and falling debris and are bullet and blast-resistant. The LifeGuard student desk is lab-tested and proven to support over 350,000 pounds - as much as a locomotive engine.


Our children spend so much time at school, lets ensure that they are as safe as possible.


LifeGuard DesksMany schools have not been seismically upgraded.

The obligation to do something is there, but the budget often is missing.

LifeGuard Structures solved the problem by providing non-structural mitigation for usually between 1% and 10% of the cost of reconstruction or retrofit. Amortized over five years, our student desk costs under $1 per day and lasts virtually forever.

Many different custom solutions exist:

  • Student Desks (Pre-12)
