Protecting our Children
Are Schools Prepared?
Preparedness At Work
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.
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.
