"This isn't like any [...] shield we've ever come across. It's more like a solid wall."
Major Samantha Carter[src]

Force fields are a type of specialized shield designed to prevent an individual, weapon fire, or any type of matter from passing through a certain point. They are utilized by many races as security barriers.

Goa'uldEdit

The Goa'uld used a massive force field to block passage to the Stargate when SGs 3, 5, 6 and 11 were sent to retrieve SG-1 from Hathor's Stargate Command mock-up. Because of its size, a huge generator was required to power it. The force field was deactivated when C-4 charges were remotely detonated inside the generator. (SG1: "Into the Fire")

During their mission to destroy Apophis' Battleship Jack O'Neill and Samantha Carter managed to run through the force fields aboard the ship, due to the enhanced Atanik armbands. Carter was trapped behind a force field when the armbands effects began to wear off. When the C-4 package exploded and the power core was destroyed all the force fields came down and the team managed to escape. (SG1: "Upgrades")

Anubis utilized a force field as an iris for his Stargate on Tartarus. This force field iris was yellow in color and utilized similar to the one on Atlantis. It is possible Anubis was utilizing Ancient knowledge in doing this. This force field iris only allowed Kull warriors to pass unharmed as the Kull armor absorbed the energy of the force field. (SG1: "Evolution, Part 2")
