Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about Shield Protection

  • Ballistic Shields and Fragmentation Shields

    What is a fragmentation shield and what does it protect against?

    A fragmentation shield is a shield specifically designed to provide protection against fragments caused by exploding mines or other explosive devices. It offers a crucial line of defense for military personnel, demining teams, or individuals working in hazardous environments.

    How do shield designs differ between ballistic and fragmentation shields?

    Ballistic shields are usually designed with materials like Kevlar or high-performance polyethylene to absorb and disperse energy from bullets, while fragmentation shields are constructed to maximize protection against fragments using impact-resistant materials like aramid fibers or composites.

    What are the key features to look for in both ballistic and fragmentation shields?

    Both shields should have lightweight construction for ease of use, ergonomic handles or straps for comfortable carrying, and adequate coverage to protect vital areas of the body. Ballistic shields must meet industry standards for ballistic resistance, while fragmentation shields should provide high-level protection against explosive fragments.

    Are there different sizes or shapes of shields available?

    Yes, shields vary in size and shape depending on their intended use. Ballistic shields often have a flat or curved design to offer coverage while maintaining maneuverability. Fragmentation shields may come in different sizes, from smaller handheld options for personal protection to larger shields for demining operations.

    In what situations or industries are these shields commonly used?

    Ballistic shields are commonly used by law enforcement agencies, SWAT teams, or security personnel during high-risk operations or active shooter situations. Fragmentation shields are frequently employed by military forces, demining or explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) teams, and individuals working in environments with potential explosive hazards.

    What training or certifications are required for using these shields effectively?

    Training in the proper use and handling of shields is critical to maximize their effectiveness and ensure user safety. Specific training or certifications may be required by law enforcement agencies, military organizations, or specialized teams working with explosives to ensure proper deployment and utilization of the shields.

  • Bomb Blankets

    What is a bomb blanket and what does it protect against?

    A bomb blanket is a heavy-duty protective blanket designed to protect against fragments caused by the explosion of bombs or improvised explosive devices (IEDs). It is specifically engineered to contain and mitigate the potential harm caused by bomb fragments.

    How does a bomb blanket work?

    A bomb blanket works by encapsulating the explosive force and fragments of a bomb, minimizing their spread and reducing the risk of injury to nearby individuals. Its strong and durable construction is designed to withstand the impact from bomb fragments and provide a safe zone of protection.

    What are the key features to look for in a bomb blanket?

    Key features of a bomb blanket include high-tensile strength materials, such as ballistic nylon or Kevlar, lightweight and easily deployable design, and a large enough size to cover and protect individuals or objects within its designated radius.
