Impact protection company D3O has announced that its products are now available through Schedule 84 contract by the General Services Administration (GSA), via D3O partner TSSi. GSA has approved three D3O TRUST (Trauma Reduction Unrivaled Shock Technology) solutions to be sold through its online shopping and ordering system, GSA Advantage. The products—D3O TRUST LP2 Knee, TRUST Nimbus, and TRUST Stealth Helmet Pad Systems—were developed specifically for harsh environments, such as those faced by defense and law enforcement professionals.
"We are pleased to expand our work with the U.S. Department of Defense through TSSi's Schedule 84 agreement with the GSA," said Bill VanMullekom, executive vice president, D3O US LLC. "D3O is committed to supporting the U.S. defense sector by engineering our impact protection solutions to exceed protection requirements and provide extreme comfort, keeping defense professionals as safe and agile as possible. We look forward to growing our reach in the U.S. market by working with TSSi to seamlessly share D3O TRUST products with more government agencies through GSA Advantage."
For more than 40 years, TSSi has been providing the highest quality equipment and solutions for military, law enforcement, and disaster response professionals worldwide. In holding a Schedule 84 contract, GSA recognizes TSSi as a preferred vendor that is fully authorized to conduct business directly with government, military, and law enforcement agencies. Valid for 23 years, the contract enables federal, state, and local government entities to easily and conveniently purchase D3O TRUST products amongst others at pre-negotiated terms and conditions.
Bill Strang, president and CEO at TSSi, added, "D3O is pioneering protection in defense and law enforcement applications and we are immensely proud to provide a top-tier distribution network for its products. Availability on GSA Advantage is the ultimate stamp of approval in facilitating government employee access to products deemed fit for purpose."
D3O TRUST solutions for defense, law enforcement, and tactical gear are used in some of the world's harshest environments. Available in seven- and nine-pad configurations, the TRUST Nimbus and TRUST Stealth helmet pad systems are designed to comfortably fit the wearer's head shape while providing high-performance deceleration under blunt impact. TRUST Nimbus is the most recent and lightweight helmet pad system from D3O, also exceeding the required level of protection at 10ft/sec by 50% in a polyethylene shell and 39% in an aramid shell.
The TRUST LP2 Knee is a modular component system that offers knee impact protection and comfort for defense and tactical applications. Compared to competing knee protection solutions, the company says D3O TRUST LP2 Knee delivers a 50% reduction in transmitted force for superior impact protection, while being 50% thinner for improved mobility and comfort in demanding environments.
