PointMan® Ballistic and Blast Blankets can be used for personnel shielding, doorway protection, operation in mining, demolition, construction and pipelines, military and police operations, and homeland security. They are designed with multiple layers of high-performance, unidirectional, aramid materials, and the blankets’ ballistic material is contained in a sealed cover made of black 1000-deneir nylon, 500-denier nylon, or a 600 denier polyester for high abrasion resistance. Fabric comes backed with a urethane waterproof cover for fabric protection and water repellency. Standard sizes of blankets are 4′ x 6′, however custom sizes are available upon request.

The following items are some basic questions to ask when preparing your Defenshield order.
What is the nature of the threat – small arms, rifle rounds, armor piercing, IED blast?
Will the unit be used indoors or outdoors?
Will the unit be used for riot control or hostage negotiations?
Do you require conspicuous deterrence or camouflage?
Will the unit need to match the aesthetics of it’s surroundings – wood or stone finishes?
Will you need traffic control signage, unit logos or law enforcement badges displayed on the unit?
What is the size of the space where the unit will be used?
Will the unit need to fit through doorways, into elevators?
What are you protecting – people, objects?
(For maximum blast mitigation, units must be secured or lagged.)
What surface are you using the unit on – gravel, dirt road, finished concrete, wood floor?
Will the unit be frequently relocated?
Will you be transporting the unit over long distances or within a few feet?
