EverWhite: Launches school security product
HARTFORD, Wis. — The most configurable and scalable shelter-in-place solution for
classrooms, offices and other public spaces is now available in MOBILEGuard™, a dual-use
product that offers a full spectrum of ballistic protection during active-shooter events, and
whiteboards for daily use.
“Schools, businesses and government agencies are
looking for effective and flexible shelters for
protection during active shooter incidents,” said Jim
Muth, general manager of Wisconsin-based
whiteboard manufacturer EVERWhite, which
manufactures and sells MOBILEGuard™. “After
consulting with security experts and educators, we designed MOBILEGuard™ to provide a full
spectrum of ballistic protection, and to provide daily use of the double-sided whiteboards or
optional cork boards.”
The MOBILEGuard™ ballistic whiteboard system is comprised of connectable panels that
contain the proprietary ballistic technology of Amulet® Protective Technologies, Inc., with
EVERWhite's magnetic whiteboard surfaces or cork boards on both sides.
The product was introduced this week at the National School Safety Conference & Exposition in
Ballistic Materials Designed for High-Level Bullet, Blast Resistance
The MOBILEGuard™ system offers high-level protection during active-shooter or other intruder
incidents. With the advanced Amulet® ballistic technology, MOBILEGuard™ is designed to give
the panels blast- and bullet-resistance up to Level III criteria of the National Institute of Justice.
That's resistance to multiple rounds coming from weapons ranging from .22 caliber used in
small arms to 7.62mm cartridges used in rifles, shotguns and semi-automatic weapons.
Variety of Panel Sizes in the System
MOBILEGuard™ panels come with lockable casters or with a stationary base. The bolt-on base
can be interchanged with casters. Two standard product sizes are available for both the caster
and stationary base versions: 78 inches high by 56.5 inches wide, and 54 inches high by 62.5
A 16-inch-wide extension panel also is available. When coupled with an optional wall bracket,
the extension panel enables tighter configurations near walls.
All of the panels offer ballistic protection to within 0.6 inch of the floor.
System Is Easy to Install, Configure, and Scale Up
The system is designed for easy installation and configuration when multiple panels are
attached to create a shelter. When joined via each panel’s pin hinges, a connected panel can be
placed at a broad range of angles compared to the adjacent panel. The panel legs, which are at
a 45-degree angle, facilitate that broad range of connected-panel angles.
When connected by the system’s pin shafts, there is virtually no space between panels, so
ballistic integrity remains. The pin hinge design is common on both panel sizes, allowing a 78-
inch-tall panel to be connected to a 54-inch-tall panel.
The EVERWhite dry erase surfaces on both sides of each panel are guaranteed not to ghost or
stain. Custom graphics or wording can be printed below the surface of the whiteboards.
As an option, the panels can be surfaced with cork boards for the entire area or partly with cork
and partly with a whiteboard.. Cork is available in 15 color options.
The whiteboard or cork board surfaces give MOBILEGuard™ an unobtrusive appearance in
classrooms, offices, reception areas of other spaces.
“We’re confident that the MOBILEGuard™ Ballistic Panel System can be a highly effective
component of overall security strategies within schools, businesses and public spaces,” Muth
MOBILEGuard™ is the premier shelter-in-place, configurable panel system that also provides
daily use in classrooms, offices or other public spaces through its dry erase or cork surfaces.
The system is comprised of connectable ballistic resistant panels with EVERWhite’s magnetic,
whiteboard or cork surfaces on both sides. The whiteboards are guaranteed not to ghost or
stain. The MOBILEGuard™ Ballistic Panel System is sold by Hartford, Wis.-based EVERWhite,
