JUSTIFY THE COST OF A LARGE S.W.A.T. SHIELD WITH A SHIELD THAT CAN BE ROUTINELY USED AND CONVERTED TO A S.W.A.T. SHIELD WHEN NEEDED.
The Variable Shield System™(VSS)-"CORE 3"™ is a multi configuration patent pending ballistic shield system. Starting with the base model of the VSS™, side panels and a bottom panel can be added when a S.W.A.T. situation arises.
The main panel has the handle, a NIJ3 viewport, with additional NIJ3 areas. At the very minimum, the user's head of the main panel is protected from rifle fire. A stylish carrying case made specifically for this model can be purchased for concealed high end security situations.
Two side panels and a bottom panel can be purchased to convert the base model to the "GAUNTLET" version, a "pillbox" of protection for the user, complete with a firing port for a pistol. The side panels are unique, they offer a rotating geometry and can be locked at either 180 degrees for maximum frontal coverage for a group of men or 90 degrees for entering doorways or for maximum side protection. When in the down position, the bottom panel extends frontal coverage to over the knees. When the bottom panel is rotated upward, two overlapping layers of NIJ3a material exists to increase protection against higher than pistol velocity projectiles. With the side panels are in the closed position and the bottom panel is rotated upward, a full 3 NIJ3a layers of protection exist, which exceeds NIJ3 requirements for rifle protection.
An optional wheeled handcart is available for ease of transporting the VSS™ up stairs, elevators or through airports. This cart has an optional NIJ3 hardened steel plate enables full NIJ3 protection from head to ankles. Stylish carrying cases are available for concealed high end operations.
