ABL7000 Bomb Suit


The ABL7000 is a high-performance full body EOD Bomb Suit providing protection against fragmentation, blast-overpressure, blunt trauma and heat/flame ingress. It is a complete EOD protective garment in its tenth generation with many new and innovative features to improve comfort and wearer manoeuvrability where levels of protection can be adjusted to suit operational needs. Fragmentation protection is achieved through the construction of multiple plies of water repellent treated aramid fibres contained within a nylon armour pack. Blast overpressure reduction is achieved through a special composite structure. The outer fabric of the suit is constructed from NOMEX certified flame-retardant material. Reinforced CORDURA patches are fitted to the knees, the blast plate pouch and the elbows to extend the suits wear life. A quick release system allows for the rapid removal of the jacket by the user. The ABL7000 Bomb Suit is supplied with a cooling suit and helmet with hardwire communications back to the ICP. Fragmentation testing has been conducted according to V50 STANAG 2920 using 17gr Fragment simulation projectile FSP and also to US MIL STD 662F. Test certification is available for all different armour systems and has been conducted by independent test houses. A unique feature of the ABL7000 bomb suit range is the ZONED ARMOUR that allows the user to determine and select the precise levels of protection against fragments over the body of the wearer. Our standard levels of protection can be increased or decreased according to specific user requirements. An Internal Additional Groin protector (IAGP) is fitted beneath the bomb suit trousers that provides additional fragment and flame protection to the groin area.
