The Protective Design Marketplace


Protogetic is a one-of-a-kind marketplace for the protective design industry. We were created for architects, engineers, procurement officers, and other industry professionals seeking high-quality security building products that have been qualified, tested and/or analyzed to provide optimal protection for buildings and their occupants.

Protogetic provides its users with a unique search filter that makes detailed product searches fast, efficient and easy. The Protogetic Filter focuses on what matters most to the security and design industries: security ratings and certifications as well as design requirements such as foundation depths (vehicle barriers) or widths and heights (vehicle barriers, doors, and windows). This reduces search times from agonizing hours to mere minutes.

Welcome to the Protogetic Marketplace – the start and end point for finding security building products.

Product User?
If your work in architecture, engineering or construction requires designing protections against terrorist attacks (blast, ballistics, forced entry, vehicle ramming, etc.), then you have probably spent a sizable amount of often frustrating time on the internet and on the phone searching for products which meet the security criteria as well as the functional and aesthetic requirements of your project.

The idea behind Protogetic is one that has been needed in the North American anti-ram barrier industry for many years. A digital vehicle barrier portfolio that verifies the information manufacturers are publishing as accurate is vital to stopping misinformation and confusion among engineers, architects and end users looking for a barrier product that meets the criteria of their risk assessments. Limiting the barrier offerings to products that have either been properly crash tested and certified by an independent test laboratory, had finite element analyses performed, or proper structural calculations provided by an independent professional engineer gives the people searching for these products peace of mind that what they are finding on Protogetic is accurate information. Gibraltar is glad to have their products on a website that has taken the step to ensure that information provided is accurate.

The security barrier industry in the United States has needed a marketplace like this one for a long time. With so much outdated information and so much confusion about standards and performance, it has been difficult for architects, engineers, specifiers, and security managers to understand and compare the many different products offered by manufacturers. Protogetic is taking on an important task at a time when security has never been more of a concern.
