Taser International

Taser International, the market leader in advanced non-lethal weapons, established their headquarters in the Perimeter Center. The 100,000 sf building houses Office, Warehouse, and Production areas - each with very different design criteria - within a single building constructed of metal panels, glass, and tilt-up concrete.

The aesthetic, inspired by the Founder’s love of sci-fi and high tech imagery is futuristic and highly contemporary. The main entry is a stout metal and glass cylinder reflecting the strength, permanence and dynamic character of Taser International. Continuing beyond the entry is a mind-expanding three-story open interior; expressed by concrete floors, cobalt blue detail lighting, stainless steel elements and narrow catwalks floating asymmetrically overhead. State-of-the-art security systems, iris scanners and a light-projected logo on the stained concrete floor complete the ultra-modern design.
