Our Bulletproof Storefront and Point of Sale Projects


Functional, Elegant, Bulletproof Retail Storefronts and Point of Sale Transaction Lines

Retail storefronts have long been a target for criminal behavior. The earliest iterations of bulletproof barriers for retail locations like gas stations, pawn shops, and corner stores were cumbersome to work with and did not make the retail spaces feel inviting.

At TSS, we believe safety and aesthetics can—and should—coexist. Our bulletproof retail storefront projects blend the safety features you need with the aesthetic details you deserve to create an effective barrier system.

Project Highlight: Bulletproof Gas Station Barrier Protects Workers, Budget, and Aesthetics


A chain of gas stations needed to protect their behind-the-counter workers but were concerned about a bulky barrier taking up counter space. The gas station retail spaces have very high ceilings, and the company was concerned about the cost of counter-to-ceiling bulletproof glass. Our solution? Create a system of ballistically-rated glazing at counter level, and non-rated, louvered glazing near the ceiling. The final result is an elegant barrier that looks great in the retail space.

Bulletproof Barriers for Retail Storefronts

Business owners, facilities directors, and operations managers frequently come to TSS concerned about losing functionality. Will workers and customers be able to hear through the barrier? Will voice ports disrupt the line of sight? Will they be able to easily pass purchases from one side of the barrier to the other? What if the items are large?

When you choose TSS as your bulletproof barrier partner, we work with you to ensure your barrier doesn’t get in the way of staff doing their jobs. If staff can’t use the barrier as intended, it’s not just a point of frustration; it’s a security risk. For instance, without the right package passer, staff may prop open a door to hand items back and forth. We see this all too often—workers left unprotected because of an avoidable error.

Our team of experienced ballistics experts will work with you to understand the types of transactions your team will facilitate, how loud the environment is, the airflow in the space, and other details that impact the functionality of your barrier. Then, we help you choose the right package passer, deal tray, talk-thru, transaction window, and other features.
