Morgan Advanced Materials unveils new lightweight, high-protection ERGOTEC 4025 explosive ordinance disposal suit
Integrating new technology, leading edge materials and world class garment engineering
Morgan Advanced Materials' Composites and Defense Systems business announces the debut of its new lightweight ERGOTEC 4025 explosive ordinance disposal (EOD) suit. Integrating new technology, leading edge materials and world class garment engineering, the ERGOTEC 4025 combines the highest levels of protection with the user mobility required for successful EOD missions. Morgan will be unveiling the new suit at the NSSF Shot Show with Point Blank, to be held January 20-23, 2015 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The ERGOTEC 4025 EOD is available to US law enforcement customers exclusively through Point Blank.
The ERGOTEC 4025 features a new streamlined chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) facemask (patent applied for). Fitting under the suit's helmet, the facemask, alongside the CBRN bodysuit, gloves, and foot protection, acts as a critical CBRN shield while maintaining the helmet's streamlined design. Another leading innovation is the suit's quick release mechanisms (patent applied for), allowing the user to self-extract from the suit in an emergency situation in less than 20 seconds.
Further advances include a decoupling breastplate with an innovative three-piece design, providing high flexibility to users. An integrated back protector provides blunt trauma protection while delivering cooling air, and the suit's cooling system fits neatly into the rear of the suit. Available in five different mix and match sizes and a range of colors, the suit can be customized to meet market needs.
"The design of the ERGOTEC 4025 suit has focused on disposal strategies involving gathering forensic evidence, which requires high protection with flexibility to enable the user to perform such maneuvers as climbing or crawling," said Martyn Cook, Development Director of Morgan Composites and Defense Systems. "We are confident that this is our most ergonomic, lightweight EOD suit yet, and are looking forward to launching at the Shot Show."
