Security Counters and Screens 

Bullet Resistant Counter and Screen Data Centre

Architectural Armour management have over 30 years experience of manufacturing physical attack and bullet resistant security counters and screens.  In that  time  we saw the trend of removing screens as banks , building societies and other cash handlers adopted an open plan desk to appear more customer friendly, recently that trend has been reversed with the re introduction of security counters and screens in many cities.  We have supplied screens to a diverse range of sectors including banks, building societies, credit unions , stadiums, consulates, jewellers, transport interchanges, secure receptions and many more.

Wether you requirement is just the screens or the whole counter and screen,  internal or external, physical attack, bullet resistant, blast or all three we are confident our UK manufactured security counters and screens will enable staff to safely and efficiently transact with customers and meet your security requirements.  We offer a design, manufacture and installation service, and by listening to our customers individual requirements we are able to provide bespoke counter and screen arrangements that meet your security needs.  To compliment our screens we offer a range of cash trays, scoops and transfer units.

Fire resistant screens are an option. The need for transactions  to take place by nature requiring a pass through, usually by cash scoops, trays or drawers causes some issues. Yet fire tested bullet resitant trays have be accepted in fire screen systems we have installed.

Physical attack resistant security screens are available with certified glazing options, which include BS EN 356 & LPS 1270 in both all glass and glass polycarbonate configurations.


Popular Attack resistant glazing options are EN356 higher resistance levels, P6B, P7B and P8B.  All of which are manufactured to withstand a specified number of mechanically delivered blows from a Sledgehammer & Axe.


Like the bullet resistant versions all frames are bespoke made to customer requirements, available in satin stainless steel or polyester powder coated  to a RAL colour of your choice.  Unlike the bullet resistant screens the attack resistant frames can incorporate open speech apertures in the mullions to allow a natural speech path between secure and attack face .

To compliment our screens we offer a range of Cash Scoops and Trays and an Electric BTU.
