complete set of Security Devices Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for demining
Our range of aprons are all proven in testing and in the field. They are designed so that the entire ensembles provides full frontal blast protection against the anti-personnel mine threat and is lightweight, durable and economic.
Our specialist Carry-bag designed to hold all of the above and protect it during transit. The bag is
padded and washable and can usually be made in a
colour to match the cover of the body armour.
PPE bag includes an inner flap to protect the visor/mask which is put
into the bag first. The rolled apron is then inserted and the knee/shin-pads
fit inside the rolled apron.
top is closed with a toggle draw string and a weatherproof cover
is fastened over the top with a quick-release back-pack buckle.
bag has adjustable shoulder straps for easy carrying as a back-
total weight of a full PPE set (visor, apron and knee-pads)
varies according to the body armour chosen.
See One Size fits all...? for information about sizes.
Unless otherwise stated, our armour covers are made using Cordura® textured nylon which is washable, exceptionally long-lasting and resistant to
abrasions, tears and scuffs, so makes an excellent outer to the high-performance core of the armour. Colours may vary between dye lots.
NOTE: Like most other PPE, SD armours are designed to be water-resistant. Users should avoid getting the core of any armour wet because this can reduce the protection it offers. If the core of armour gets wet, allow the garment to dry naturally before use. Do not tumble-dry or expose to heaters.
Of course, to meet the IMAS 10.30 requirements, blast resistant hand-tools should also be considered as an essential part of any complete ensemble!
See Aprons for an explanation of why frontal apron protection has become the norm in Humanitarian Demining.
