Allen-Vanguard Introduces Modular EOD Suit at London Counter Terror Expo

April 19, 2011  | 

Allen-Vanguard has introduced its new EOD Tactical blast protection suit to security authorities attending the Counter Terror Expo 2011. This ensemble is an integral part of the company's solutions for protecting law enforcement and military personnel tasked with defeating terrorist and extremist threats, including Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).

The EOD Tactical Suit provides counter-terrorist personnel with blast and fragmentation protection in a lightweight ensemble covering the torso and extremities. Its components can be selectively donned to meet a variety of operational requirements and threats faced during breaching, explosives search, dog handling and numerous military applications. Its exceptionally innovative design provides significantly greater coverage than conventional body armor while retaining the mobility essential to operating in hostile environments.

"We are extremely encouraged by the user community's immediate embrace of the EOD Tactical, as shown by its very strong initial sales," according to Dennis Morris, Allen-Vanguard's CEO. "This confirms its ability to meet the growing need for unprecedented levels of protection and flexibility."

The EOD Tactical is worn in conjunction with a user's bullet resistant vest to supplement its protection against blast and fragmentation. For continuous facial protection, Allen-Vanguard's Visor System can be attached to most tactical and military helmets and integrates with the suit's chest plate.
