Our employees are our biggest asset and now are referred to as 'human capital.' Why wouldn’t you take the extra step to provide this kind of protection where you can?

The need for the protection provided by the award winning Guardian™ Chair is even more apparent with the recent events at the Navy Yard. Neutral Posture, a Texas-based designer and maker of ergonomic chairs, manufactures a chair for employees who do not need to wear a ballistic vest all day, but want the immediate protection that a vest can provide in active shooter situations.

With the increase of workplace shootings in our society, the need for protection is evident as is the importance and relevance of protection offered by the Guardian™ Chair. The detachable vest can protect an employee from a regular .22-caliber up to a .357 Magnum. Rebecca Boenigk of Neutral Posture says, "Our employees are our biggest asset and now are referred to as 'human capital.' Why wouldn’t you take the extra step to provide this kind of protection where and when you can?" The reality of danger from shootings is becoming more apparent as evident in the media every day, and has left employers with a new responsibility-- protection of their employees.

The NIJ Level II bullet resistant vest comes from the same high quality materials as military grade personal protection equipment (PPE) and is manufactured by a provider of PPE for the U.S. military. Whether the employee uses the easily detachable bullet resistant vest or the chair itself as a shield, the Guardian™ Chair creates a new level of protection in a situation in which response time matters.
