We have been successfully manufacturing demining Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for seventeen years. Our customers include governments, United Nations projects, Military and Special Forces, international demining NGOs, commercial demining companies, and research institutions. We also provide two leading European equipment suppliers with armour and visors badged with their names. When possible, we will try to make what you need - we have even made dummy mines for a GICHD test when asked.

Our high quality, value-for-money products can be seen in use all around the world today. The pictures alongside show a few places where our products are used.

With ongoing research and development and constant customer contact, we introduce additional products and services as required.

Most of our equipment is designed in house, although some has been designed by outsiders such as MIT. We are happy to design on an ad-hoc basis to meet specific customer requirements.

All PPE offered for sale has been user- and blast-tested and has proven itself in the field. Our testing regime and blast-testing record is unique.

For our Blast-resistant hand-tools, we now offer advice on how to use them, including detailed instructions about excavating a mine as safely as possible. See Using our tools safely.

SD reserves the right to alter product design and specification in accordance with our ongoing Research and Development program.
