The SARKAR Demining Search Suit is a recent development to meet a demand for a “Total Coverage” suit that is lighter, offers more freedom of movement than a standard EOD suit and more protection than a Fragmentation Vest.
The SARKAR Demining Search Suit is a lightweight protective suit, all enveloping from head to foot, which is easy to wear but allows the wearer far greater comfort and ease of movement compared to the normal EOD suit.
Since it is made from a number of components it is possible to wear all or some components as circumstances dictate.
Jacket: Provides front, back, and side, shoulder and neck protection with the additional feature of armour plate pockets. The high collar is designed to work in conjunction with the SARKAR Mine Helmet.
Arms: Separate sleeves provide optimum mobility.
Groin Protector: Can be worn in either the raised or lowered position. When raised it provides extra protection to the abdomen area.
Trousers: Supported by stout braces, this unique design provides freedom of movement and optimum protection to the legs.
Helmet & Visor: The SARKAR Mine Helmet and Visor provide unequalled protection to head and neck areas.
Mittens: Provide full protection to the front and back of the hands.
In principle we can offer the whole range of protection levels. However in practice terms we have found the most appropriate level is our fragmentation system to V50>460m/s to Stanag 2920
Laminated panels of woven aramid provide the “soft” protection. These packs are tailored to provide maximum extent of protection. The design of the laminate allows a high degree of flexibility to accommodate anthropometric variations and avoid restrictions to movement. The armour system also meets the blast protection requirements of International Mine Standard (IMAS) 10.30.
