Visor is step change for bomb suits [DSEI17D1]

12 September 2017

A specialist EOD helmet visor has been launched by Morgan Advanced Materials (Stand S5-265), which integrates with its cutting edge Silverback 4020 Elite bomb suit to accommodate the wearing of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) protective garments.

The Silverback CBRN visor allows for the seamless integration of in-service CBRN facemasks and protective undergarments. Featuring a wider surface area to accommodate the wearing of a CBRN facemask and respiration equipment, the visor delivers a range of benefits including powerful demisting technology and a wide field of vision for optimal situational awareness, helping to ensure the safety of the wearer.

The latest innovation has undergone extensive blast testing to ensure full protection for the wearer.

Designed to ensure full compatibility as a complete CBRN garment system, the Silverback 4020 Elite features MOLLE attachments on the rear of the suit jacket, which allows air purification and respiratory systems and other critical accessories to be attached.

Chris Davies, technical director at the Composites and Defence Systems business of Morgan Advanced Materials, said: ‘‘The launch of our Silverback CBRN visor represents a significant technological breakthrough and step change in the application of our bomb suits. We are proud to have developed an EOD suit solution that is compatible with most in-service CBRN garments to protect EOD teams from an array of threats.’’

The Silverback CBRN visor is available to buy with the Silverback 4020 Elite bomb suit or as a standalone purchase for existing customers who wish to upgrade to a CBRN protective solution.
