Providing shielding solutions since 2002
TotalShield is the leader in impact protection. We’re committed to delivering safe, reliable, and tested protection.
Innovation and product development require high safety standards, which is why the most advanced and thorough tests back all TotalShield’s blast-containment products.
TotalShield was founded in 2002 by Keith Snyder. During his time at Sandia National Laboratories, he invented our unique modular framing technology, specially designed for high-impact shielding.
Keith’s passion for designing blast-resistant structures drove him to found TotalShield with one clear goal: bringing reliable, engineered, and tested personnel and equipment protection. He then forged a relationship with the Southwest Research Institute, the leading authority in blast, ballistic, and impact testing in the United States.
