31 May 2017

S4 Tactical & Defence (Booth 435) has signed an exclusive Canada, USA and South America partnership with TenCate Advanced Armor, whose products will now be available in Canada.

TenCate provides survivability systems for land, sea and air platforms, and personal protection equipment. Among products offered are various ballistic inserts and the Targa-light shield. The latter is available in three distinct types: Targa-light CX is the high-performance range made with composites of high-grade ceramics, silicon carbide or boron carbide and a range of different fibre materials, including aramids and high-performance polyethylene (PE). It is the most lightweight shield and combines highest ballistic protection with maximum comfort. CS is the cost-effective range, which combines 100 per cent ballistic protection with lower cost. Both the CX and CS also provide protection against lead core and armour-piercing ammunition.

PF is the range of shields made with fibre only, and provides protection against lead core and mild steel core ammunition.

S4 has also announced an exclusive Canadian partnership with XION Protective Gear, which produces a variety of protective undergarments for the purpose of the PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) market. The XION base layer protects against blunt trauma impact.
