Increase Protection with Ballistic Grade Skid Steer Door Guards

     Step-up the guarding on your skid steer with a UL752 Level 1 ballistic door better known as the Defender Ballistic Door. Whether you are operating a hammer, auger, mower, mulcher, or a log processor you can feel secure in knowing there is a 3/4” bullet-resistant door in place, to help protect your BIGGEST ASSET – YOU!

     Our polycarbonate skid steer doors have not been drilled or milled making it less susceptible to micro-fractures and is bonded to a steel frame making it flex less. Unlike most skid steer doors that might be rated for heavy impact, the Defender Door is rated to withstand a ballistic attack and is designed to install with your factory door components. No matter the industry your machines may be in its time to put real protection in place for you and your operators!

     The Defender Polycarbonate Door for skid steer installs easily onto the skid steer using factory hardware from your original door, including gasket, hinges, door lock hardware, and emergency escape system. Our ballistic grade skid steer door guards for Caterpillar, Bobcat & Kubota machinery will help guard your skid steers & operators.

Our skid steer guards can be used for any industry including forestry, construction, landscaping & more! Our polycarbonate door guards are designed to provide exceptional visibility and increase your safety when operating your skid steer.

BE AWARE. NOT ALL POLYCARBONATE IS CREATED EQUAL.


*Bullet resistant does not mean “bullet proof”, the Level 1 polycarbonate installed in the Defender Door is rated to withstand a ballistic attack from a 124 grain, 9mm FMJ lead core projectile from 15 feet with a shot spacing of 4 inches. This test is performed in a controlled environment at varying temperatures as low as -26 F and as high as 120 F (outside temperature). Please NOTE: This guard is intended as a brush guard only. It is not a certified FOPS/ROPS guard.
