What is a BRE?
BRE® is a PROTECH® registered trademark, which stands for Ballistic Resistant Enclosure. These are highly robust structures affording ballistic, and in most cases, blast protection. The framing system consists of a comprehensive tube steel construction; while interiors utilize steel and other high strength materials ensuring superior durability and prolonged life. Our advanced designs allow each structure to maintain integrity from initial delivery through its full lifecycle.
How are the guard booths, towers, or fighting positions shipped?

How are they offloaded?
It is the responsibility of the buyer to have all guard booths, towers, or other armored structures offloaded. It is typically done via crane or forklift, depending on the size of the unit. All structures contain lifting lugs for ease of offloading.
