Overboots

The overboots are designed to be worn over normal type military boots and are fastened around the ankle and underneath the arch of the boot.

Carrying Bag

All bomb suits come with a large carrying bag within which is the complete suit, blast plates,

helmet, spinal protector and room for other small accessories. The cooling vest has its own

carrying container.

Ballistic Helmet, Visor, Demister

The bomb helmet incorporates the latest materials technology and molding techniques to provide a helmet that is not only ballistically superior but also shaped to fit the wearer’s head. It is also designed to fully integrate within the collar of the suit without impeding the lateral and rotational movement of the head.

Features:

• Advanced Aramid molding technology

•  Multi  impact   laminated   visor   -  Anti  ballistic   visor  made   from  hardened   acrylic polycarbonate laminate.

• Built in demister to stopping fogging and allow cool air onto the face

• Shock absorbing foam liner

• Internal sweat management comfort fabrics

• Removable visor to allow for greater comfort before and after operations

• Aramid neck skirt to offer even greater neck protection

• Molded chin cup

*Suspension harness – webbing and ballistic nylon.

*Flashlight: A bracket and small flashlight is provided on the front of the helmet which is self powered .

The helmet is based upon a motor cycle ‘Jet’ style helmet and fully covers over the ears and with the neck protector continues down around the upper neck. It has a removable visor mounted on two side pivots with locking pins on each side to secure it in position.

When it is closed it is sealed to the helmet to stop blast and dust particles entering the helmet and around the operator’s eyes. The visor is constructed from a laminate of polycarbonate and acrylic which not only gives it a good multi hit capability but also excellent ballistic performance. Optical Transmission 90 %

At the back of the helmet there is the fan connector intake housing which blows a cool stream of air round the inside of the helmet and onto the wearer’s face ensuring that the visor  does  not  steam  up.  This  is  powered  by  its  own  battery  source  built  in  to  the respirator . All power sources are rapidly rechargeable.

Air Flow: 160 Lt air/min

Duration: 4 hours

The  EOD  helmet  is  made  from  a sandwich  construction  system  developed  by and unique to the company and is fully adjustable by means of the three-point suspension. Incorporated in the helmet is the a communication  set consisting of an integral speaker and  microphone.  Also  incorporated  in  the  helmet  is  an  Air  Ventilation  system,  which directs the flow of forced fresh air over the top of the helmet liner, across the visor and down over the operator’s face ensuring efficient demisting and clear view. This system can be used in conjunction with a Filter/Canister configuration. The visor is removable.

 

Ventilation  and  Demisting:  Low  Profile  Powered  Air  Filtration  System.  This  system  is attached to the bomb suit and controlled via a switch. This system then forces air up the heavy duty breathing tube directly in to the helmet over the top of the head and on to the visor. The heavy duty tube will be covered in cloth and secured . In addition, as standard equipment ,this system offers particulate filtration, something that the series II suit only offers if a decision was made to fit a filter/canister. The Air Filtration System is lightweight at  only  1.5kg  and  is  rechargeable.  The  new  style  helmet  we  are  offering  has  been supplied in large quantities over the years to many countries around the world so it is a proven piece of equipment. Our new style helmet is a slightly lower profile than the series II helmet which is better for vehicle search and other EOD operations.

 

Protection Performance:

Helmet 680 m/s Stanag 17 grain (1.1) fragment simulator and visor 680m/s.

Hardwire and communication system

 

Communications:

The helmet has a built in speaker and microphone which are connected to a controller mounted  on the lower  RH front  of the smock.  An external  socket  is provided  on the controller for connection to a wireless or hardwire system. The hardwire communications system  is  designed  specifically  for  EOD  teams  using  EOD  bomb  disposal  suits.  The system provides communication between the bomb disposal operator and his back up at the base station. This is via 100m of cable mounted on a reel

The optional Hardwire duplex communications is supplied with the base station, headset, and 100m wire on a reel. The wire plugs into the side of the controller on the front of the smock.

If two way radios are to be used the same socket is used. However the type and make of the radio must be specified so the correct interface can be assured. There is a switch on the side of the controller to change between hardwire or wireless.

The   controller   on   the   EOD   suit   has   three   controls,   one   for   volume   control   of communications between the EOD technician and the base station. The second controls the ambient sound* volume and the third control button, which is on the top of the air pump controls the air blower.

The controller  is supplied as part of the EOD suit therefore  all systems  come with an ambient sound facility.

The base station for the Duplex Hardwire system contains a battery which will power the communications in the EOD suit .

*Ambient  Sound  Feature:  An  external  microphone  is  mounted  on  the  outside  of  the helmet and a speaker in the helmet on the LH side enabling the operator to hear noises in his environment. This has an automatic high decibel cut out. This facility is controlled with an ON/OFF switch and volume control accessible to the operator .

Power Supply: Powered Air Purification System – Supplied with own self contained in built rechargeable battery and compact charger. Ambient Sound – 9v standard battery

Displacement Forces

Once the fragments and the Blast Wave have been discharged there is a massive displacement of air around the device in a spherical expansion, which will cause objects to be flung through the air. One of which, will be the EOD operative. The effects of being hurled through the air are numerous and depend largely on the stance of the operator at the time, the drag on the different

human parts, and the position of other objects around the operative. To combat physical injury caused by low velocity impact onto other objects the helmet is fitted with special shock absorbing materials and the spine is protected by the spinal protector,

worn inside the back of the suit. Moreover, the damper incorporated in the blast plates

also protects from low velocity forward impacts.  To minimize  traumatic  amputation  the suits as are well fitting to reduce drag and also to hold the limbs attached to the body after the bones might have fractured within. Medically, if this can be achieved the possibility of saving the limb is greatly increased.

 

 

 

Protection from Heat & Fire

It is difficult to quantify this threat as it depends upon the explosive material used and if incendiary material was deliberately incorporated  within the device. However, during all explosions there is a flash which causes high temperature dust particles to be generated. This flash is normally short lived and therefore thermal conduction  is not such a large problem as is the flammability and the effects of the high temperature dust particles to sensitive organs such as the eyes.

To combat this the suit is not only intrinsically flame resistant as it is made from Aramid which has a decomposition

temperature of 450 Deg C but is also covered in Nomex Delta T fabric which is the latest generation fabric from Dupont.

The Helmet design and visor configuration also offers excellent protection to the eyes and face from the high temperature dust particles. Special Aramid gloves are available as an extra which will also protect the operators hands when worn.
