Defenshield Rail Cap

Defenshield - Rail Cap


The Rail Cap is an armor and glass system designed to add ballistic, blast and fragment protection to shipboard and architectural railings. Once installed, the unit creates a protected position with a full field of vision and the ability to return fire. It also serves as an effective hostile activity deterrent. The Rail Cap is ideal for use on commercial and military ships traveling in high-risk areas, as well as guard towers, prisons, stadiums, arenas and government buildings.

Rail Cap units are also effective for maritime anti-piracy use. Their universal fittings enable the units to be easily and securely attached to a variety of railing configurations. By adding transparent armor to a ship's railing, personnel are able to spot and respond to approaching threats while remaining protected from gunfire, blasts and other attacks.

Rail Cap Product Information

What are the dimensions of an MDFP?
The standard MDFP is 36" wide by 76" high, however, we can build units to meet your specifications. For example, if you require movement of the unit through doorways that are 32" wide, we can build units for you that are 30" wide.

Can I change the mobility option of my MDFP after delivery?
Caster kits can be added to any unit originally designed with lag plates, however, the ATV-style tire option should be chosen at the time of order since it requires a machined modification of the unit. Lag plates can be added to any unit at any time.

Can we get a sample MDFP for evaluation before placing an order?
Yes, qualified buyers can arrange for a short-term evaluation unit. The requesting agency is responsible for the shipping costs, which are credited upon placement of an order. Your Account Manager will work with you to ensure you receive the most appropriate unit for your evaluation.

Does the Camography™ option change the ballistic properties of the unit and can you match any image request?
The Camography layer does not affect the level of protection of the device. We have a range of image samples you can choose from, or you may provide us with an image and we will match it for you.
