The BALBAR Protective Barrier
is a unique highly mobile solution that guarantees multi-level effective protection against a variety of risk scenarios. It will stop projectiles from short and long-range firearms and, in the event of an explosion, protects personnel against the effects of pressure and shock wave associated with exploding ammunition, improvised explosive devices (IEDs), and unstable pressurized gas cylinders.
The BALBAR Protective Barrier is supplied in two different sizes (ML-07, ML-08). The main structure is formed by a pneumatic support frame and this is shielded by protective plates made of GFRP composite material. There are three optional thickness protective plates (11, 13, and 15 mm). These are resistant to munitions fired from small arms, shrapnel grenades, and smaller calibre explosives. The whole structure is further protected against explosions and shock wave by the use of a fully loaded water bag that provides both stability to the structure and secondary protection.
THE MAIN BALBAR FEATURES
- Simple to transport
- Compact dimensions - easy to handle
- Quick activation system – complete barrier ready in less than 4 minutes
- Deployable in enclosed spaces and high-rise buildings
- Join multiple modules together to create a continuous barrier whilst still maintaining protection
