Bullet Proof Glass for Small­ Business Owners

ExxonMobil

Family-run pharmacies, 24-hour gas stations/convenience stores, check cashers, jewelers, gold buyers, pawn shops, cell phone stores: Different products, different business models, different customer bases and hours of operations, different regulations, different trade groups—seemingly nothing in common.  But as Total Security Solutions CEO Jim Richards points out, “different businesses, same security.”  Over the course of decades

CAN YOUR DEAL TRAYS CATCH BULLETS?

According to Total Security Solutions vice president Jim Richards, “Most of the people who buy our deal trays aren’t looking to stop bullets.” This might come as a surprise, but Jim points out that not all businesses that need pass through trays require bullet proof security. For example, most entertainment venues don’t need to stop

The Deal Tray

While you can build a box-style bullet proof deal tray from individual welded sheets of metal, that’s far from the best process: Each of those welded joints is a possible point of failure, and the welding process runs the risk of unpredictably weakening the metal itself. In order to minimize these failure points, top-notch bullet
