EOD Suit and Helmet

!
Contact us for pricing and info

The EOD Suit is designed with the operators comfort and protection as the primary focus. The suit and helmet are constructed from the latest in available material technologies and manufacturing methods. The armor protection available can be tailored to meet any pre-determined threat analysis. The armor comprises multiple layers of soft water repellent Aramid encapsulated in a PVC outer cover for additional protection.

Anti-trauma layering is included in the armor packs. The option of including the steel hard armor anti-blast plates allows for the dramatic increase in the level of protection offered.

The outer cover of the suit is made from HTA Kermel, which is a rip stop inherently flame retardant fabric with superior break open strength and UV stabilization.

The communications system is an integral part of the helmet and is powered from the base station reducing the necessity of carrying large and heavy batteries. The option of allowing the use of radio communications is offered; these are totally VOX operated and require no hands on use during field operations.

The helmet is manufactured using a sandwich construction of composite materials encasing an aramid fiber core. The face shield is constructed from a combination of acrylics and polycarbonate and opens vertically, when closed it is secured with two catches mounted out of the line of sight of the operator. The visors ‘wrap around’ design allows for an uninterrupted view for the operator.

The TamiamiArmor EOD Suit comprises the following components:
• Jacket with semi ridged attached collar
• Hand protectors
• Spine protector
• Trousers, with quick release zips
• Overshoes
• Throat blast plate
• Chest blast plate
• Groin blast plate

BALLISTIC EOD HELMET
The EOD helmet is made from a composite combination sandwich construction with an aramid core
•Incorporated in the helmet is the communication set consisting of an integral speaker and microphone
•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 can be replaced with an NBC forced air filtration system. The visor can be opened and is held in place with two over locking catches.

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. A volume control is situated on the top of the communications controller. Power for the controller is supplied via the base station.. 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 bottom of the controller on the front of the smock.

If two way radios are to be used the controller box is removed from the suit and the radio substituted. The radio is fully VOX activated and does not need to be adjusted by the wearer during field operations.

JACKET
The jacket is a long sleeved, side opening design filled with flexible aramid Armor pack.
Provision is made on the front for the attachment of the rigid throat, chest and groin blast plates by means of buckles, webbing waist straps and Velcro on the collar. The high collar provides overlap protection for the helmet and visor.

TROUSERS
The trousers have fully adjustable supporting braces and wide Velcro waistband. The side of each leg has a full-length quick release zip.
The overshoes are attached to the bottom of the trousers. The jacket can be quickly removed by pulling the quick-release straps attached to the side and shoulder of the jacket and the quick release zips on the trousers.

Made of ballistic nylon with a fire resistant coating. Will contain explosions from a large variety of bombs.  Sixteen sq. feet of coverage provides substantial protection; yet the blanket is light enough (22.5lb) to be carried by one man. In high magnitude explosions the blanket rises to a parachute configuration while the sides drop to contain the blast.
