PHOENIX (KPNX) - Jeff Isquith founded Ballistic Furniture Systems to better help protect people from active shooters.
The company makes bullet-resistant parts that can be incorporated inside furniture.
The armor is a Kevlar material that is capable of stopping bullets ranging from a .22 caliber to a .44 Magnum.
It catches bullets similar to the way a net works, and absorbs the pressure from the impact. Isquith is marketing it to schools and movie theaters.
"In the event you have gunfire taking place, people panic. When people panic, they tend to look around, and they duck down or drop to the floor," says Isquith.
Granted, like any other armor, the technology is only bullet resistant. "Bullet proof" is a commonly used misnomer.
