Security in sports arenas and stadiums traditionally focuses on the mass entrance and exit of spectators. There’s been a concerted effort to safeguard against overcrowding, crushing, sudden surges, or stampedes which can lead to severe injury. Preventing uninvited or unlawful entry has also been on the radar. That is why most physical security solutions and measures that are visible involve turnstiles, fencing, barriers, on-site security guards, closed-circuit television (CCTV), and other access-control or surveillance techniques.
Bulletproof glass-covered cash booths and transaction windows where any threat of robbery is a possibility have also been seeing increasing rates of production.
The Growing Need for Security Speakers
At Armortex, our team of expert designers and engineers took on the challenge of developing bulletproof security speakers that could fit a selection of shapes and sizes. We applied our specialized skill set and technical knowhow to provide highly resistant hardware that didn’t interfere with or significantly hinder the sound quality of the message being emitted from the speaker.
Collaboratively, we have come up with an innovative response to our customers’ commonly voiced concerns about sound quality. We have manufactured and modified our own mechanical voice port covers, often referred to as ‘Speak Thru’ covers. These revolutionary applications guarantee the same protective properties while allowing the transmission of clear speech through heavily guarded ballistic material.
Security Speaker Specifications and Functions
Armortex’s portfolio of electronic security speaker components are all made to fit through a hole in the ballistic glass and are fitted to the safe side with a stainless-steel plate to keep them firmly in place and ensure that they aren’t altered or tampered with.
We can match the application to the level of resistance and ballistic capability required. For ballistic levels of 1-3, we incorporate ‘laminated polycarbonate plates’ but for levels 4-8 ‘prime-painted HI-Ballistic’ steel is incorporated.
Types of Security Speakers
We offer our customers 2 main categories of security speaker as viable solutions for a safely run sports venue: Electronic and passive. Each type contains collective parts and components that can be made in a range of styles, specifications and ballistics levels.
Electronic Security Speakers
Including popular products such as, the ‘Electronic Communicator’, the ‘Electronic Counter Mount’ and the ‘SC-300 Electronic Two-Way Communicator’, we can recommend the latest security speaker systems.
Passive Security Speakers
Our proprietary ‘AND S6’, ‘Passive Voice’ and ‘SSS-7’ passive security solutions share many of the characteristics of their electronic counterparts with state-of-the-art and highly-resistant ballistic materials that allow sound to pass through from the source.
