MRT shield

MRT Shield is the triangular screen and door handle in the MRT train. It is also a shield and high-strength aluminum-scandium alloy rod for terrorist attacks. The triangular screen heel is changed to elastic safety glass, and the two-hand handle is designed for easy use. It can be easily lifted with one hand to protect yourself. The door handle is designed so that it can be used as a counterattack after being disassembled to attack suspects when necessary. In the event of a terrorist attack, passengers can protect themselves first to avoid being attacked until the help of personnel.
