International Armoring Corporation (IAC), the world leader in passenger vehicle armoring, announces its newest innovation, Safeboard™ ballistic white boards and wall panels. Based upon IAC’s 20 years of experience armoring vehicles, Safeboard provides security and discretion for today’s classrooms.

The Safeboard, is made using Armormax®, a protective material developed by IAC, that can withstand the firepower from a handgun to automatic weapons. Designed with discretion in mind, the Safeboard is designed to blend in with surroundings and can be incorporated into shelving units, whiteboards, doorways and other classroom elements. When deployed, Safeboard becomes an armored wall students can stand behind, protecting themselves from an intruder within seconds. The Safeboard is designed to protect against virtually every weapon that can be mounted to the shoulder.

“For parents and teachers, the safety and peace of mind of our students is paramount,” said Mark Burton, CEO, International Armoring Corporation. “ Safeboard is designed to be a functional classroom tool (whiteboard, bulletin board, shelves) while also providing cost effective security. ”

The concept for Safeboard came about after several school districts approached IAC to discuss new techniques to protect classrooms. Created with a school district’s strict budget in mind, Safeboard is available in standard and customized options. Pricing for the Safeboard starts at $1,850. Safeboard can also be used by the pharmaceutical industry, at healthcare facilities, pawnshops and other locations where there is a need for increased safety.
