Fast Rising Screen

Instant staff protection in a fraction of a second.

Fast Rising Screens – alternatively known as Eclipse Rising Screens –  are Safetell’s pneumatic moving screen solution that ‘fires’ a bullet/ballistic resistant security screen from beneath a counter in half a second, providing instant protection in 0.5 of a second.

Concealed within an open-counter trading-surface, Fast Rising Screens can be activated at the touch of a button, instantly deploying a large protective barrier from the open counter, creating a total lockdown, protecting staff and alarming criminals, as a bullet resistant protective barrier rises from beneath the counter, creating a total lockdown.

Often specified for banks and government cash offices. The Ballistic/Bullet Resistant and Manual Attack Resistant barrier cuts off the aggressors by immediately removing the audio and visual communication.

Technical Information

Incorporating specialist patented technology, Fast Rising Screens can be designed to fit the composition of any open-counter store or office and can be custom-fitted to a range of heights and widths. Fast Rising Screens are supplied with a discreet and secure electronic control panel to allow for management and control of the screen.

Fast Rising Screens are composed of bullet resistant steel panels, raised by compressed air. These are housed in a bullet resistant steel case which provides full protection beneath counter level. All vertical mullions, angled joints, walls and doors offer the same level of protection and are finished with ‘clip-on’ aluminium architraves for an integrated appearance. A flush-fitting cover plate allows documents, banknotes and coins to be slid easily across the counter.

Activation and Controls

Fast Rising Screens are operated using Safetell’s SureFire Control System, utilising a high resolution digital multi-touch display system. The SureFire System provides the ability to link multiple Fast Rising Screens together, allowing for complete ‘lockdown’ upon firing.

Controlled, vibration free acceleration is achieved by means of Safetell’s patented pneumatic ram arrangement. A braking system, also patented, slows the screen at the top of its reach.

Colours and Finishes

Decorative mullion and screen cover plate finishes are available in any powder coat colour, matt, satin or gloss finish. The cover plate can also be laminated to match surrounding Counter work and Service Desks.

Resistance Level

Fast Rising Screens are designed to provide a high level of ballistic and manual attack resistance, to the standard of: BS EN 1063. If required, a more resilient steel can be used in manufacturing to stop high-velocity weapons such as NATO assault rifles and Russian-made AK47’s.

Maintenance Access

Counterwork should allow for maintenance access from the front, rear or from raised floor level, depending on the type of screen.

Additional Notes

If multiple Fast Rising Screen counters are installed, a single activation can automatically raise the adjacent Screens while locking down the surrounding area.
