TenCate launches new body armour solutions
TenCate Advanced Armor has launched a new line of personal protection armour products designed to provide higher levels of life-saving protection to law enforcement and military personnel.
The new systems include two soft body armour materials, five soft body armour models, and fourteen hard body armour plates.
The TenCate Themis family of soft body armour inserts protect against ballistic, fragmentation, spike and edged blades; while the TenCate Cratus family of hard body armour protect against the full range of handgun, edged blade, and rifle threats typically seen in law enforcement and military operational environments.
The new materials include TenCate’s Aramid-Shield 1000 uni-directional aramid ballistic material, and Pro-Tector 1000 woven aramid laminate multi-threat material.
Mark Bajko, vice president and general manager, TenCate Advanced Armor North America, said: ‘Our new line of personal protection products is revolutionary and continues our heritage of providing state of the art armour solutions. Using our advanced materials technology and armour design capabilities, we have developed a full line of soft and hard body armour products that offer higher levels of life saving capabilities than what is available on the market today.
‘Our North American product line combined with our comprehensive European personal protection products contribute and enhance our company's mission of protecting people and their working and living environment.’
