Kenno Tech has announced that its Balpro Protector modular ballistic shield system has been deployed in Lebanon for the UNIFIL peacekeeping operation. The system is providing a camp wall capable of providing protection against common threats including 155 mm artillery shells.

Balpro Protector is a modular steel element system that can be configured into protective walls or shelters. A system set contains seven 6m long ballistic shield elements, which enables construction of camp wall or a shelter of up to 42m.

The system can be erected in two hours without the use of special tools. It handles as a self-supporting 20ft container, and its sandwich structure can be filled with sand or gravel.

The Balpro Protector system has been developed in co-operation with the Finnish Army and tested in live firing tests. The system is continually being developed and the latest addition to the product line is a watch tower.
