Franconia mine clearance and EOD search suits are extremely versatile and comfortable, and are designed to be worn by personnel who have to look for EOD/IED devices and anti personnel mines. They come in two basic designs: Mine Clearance Jacket (MCJ) and Mine Clearance Apron (MCA), and are designed in a modular fashion to allow different elements to be worn depending on the task being undertaken.
The Olympia bomb suit is United Shield’s latest and most advanced design of bomb suit. It is a complete EOD/IEDD ensemble and provides the highest levels of protection from the four main threats encountered by EOD/IEDD operators of fragmentation, overpressure, impact and heat.
Silesia is United Shield’s latest and most advanced search suit. It is designed to be worn by EOD/IED technicians to provide the optimum balance between protection and mobility and was developed in close collaboration with leading bomb disposal teams. A key feature of the Silesia Advance Search Suit is the special four-piece construction (jacket, groin protector, trousers and over boots) which provide fragmentation and blast protection to the whole body, including back, front, side, neck, under arm, and lower pelvic region. The outer material is a certified flame retardant material, such as Nomex® Delta T.
A key feature of the Olympia bomb suit is its zonal armor system, which provides outstanding blast protection with maximum mobility, flexibility and comfort. The highest protection level is afforded to life critical areas of the body, such as the neck, chest and groin, with STANAG 2920 V50’s ranging from 1,900 m/sec to 450 m/sec. These levels of protection can be adjusted to suit individual customers needs.
