Balpro Protector system deployed in Lebanon
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.
