Plasan - a global leader in the field of combat-proven survivability and armor solutions for vehicles, airborne platforms and personal protection - ushers in a new era in light-vehicle protection against RPGs with its introduction of FlexFence at DSEi, London, Stand N8-250.
The company will also showcase its range of solutions for vehicle and personal protection, based on its unique optimization of protection, payload, and cost.
Plasan's new FlexFence system, based on the company's most advanced and intelligent engineering, delivers the maximum protection at the lightest weight and at an affordable cost. Designed for light vehicles, the system is easily mounted on existing vehicle hulls - and easily removed, with no design changes required. Combining exceptional ballistic protection with maximal functionality, FlexFence provides an unparalleled level of protection against one of today's most serious threats - Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPG). Optimized materials together with cutting-edge design enable unmatched durability. Plasan's fine-tuned engineering ensures that the integrity of the platform's performance - as well as the armored protection - are never compromised. FlexFence causes no standoff from the vehicle's hull, maintaining the platform's silhouette, thus preventing the creation of improvised storage spaces that can interfere with system performance.
According to Dani Ziv, Plasan's CEO, "We are very pleased to unveil FlexFence at DSEi. The system represents a significant milestone in the quest for an effective defense for light vehicles against the scourge of RPGs. This new technology, based on the most cutting-edge materials, methods and engineering processes, safeguards the lives of soldiers on the battlefield by providing protection levels substantially beyond current standards - while adding the smallest possible weight to the vehicle."
