Point Blank Enterprises to Showcase ‘Head to Toe’ Protective Armor Systems and the Latest Vehicle Surveillance Technologies at SHOT Show 2018
Posted on January 16, 2018
Point Blank Enterprises (“PBE”), the worldwide leader in the production of body armor and related protective solutions, will be demonstrating its newest innovations in tactical and concealable ballistic packages, advanced carrier designs, apparel, outerwear, holsters and duty gear, along with state-of-the art surveillance systems at the 2018 Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) taking place January 23-26 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Building on its industry-leading position and proven track record in delivering innovative and life-saving protective solutions, PBE continues to introduce advanced products from its world-class brands - giving the company an even greater footprint in the Military, Law Enforcement, Corrections, Federal, and International marketplaces. Our latest line-up of solutions reflects this – with new multi-functional and multi-compliant body armor packages that address the ever-changing needs of officers.
“Over the past few years, we have enhanced our offering, focusing on new material technologies that significantly improve the wearability of our body armor systems,” said Michael Foreman, Executive Vice President of International Business Development, Federal Sales and Marketing at Point Blank Enterprises. “The advancements we’ve made in carrier designs in particular, have been tremendous and we’ve recently enhanced some of our new crossover carriers and tactical systems based on real-time feedback from our customers in the field.”
Point Blank will also feature its IRIS COVERT Surveillance Platform - designed from the ground up to be the most advanced, integrated, and intuitive surveillance platform on the market. The system provides unrivaled run time using the latest in Lithium Ion battery technology, unique and fully integrated Point Blank operations software, highest audio and video resolution, full 360 degree high definition video and viewing from within the vehicle or remotely from anywhere in the world. The IRIS COVERT system can be provided to customers as a turnkey vehicle, an upgrade package for existing vehicles or installed into customer provided vehicles.
These cutting-edge solutions, among others, will be on display at the Company’s booth (#11366) in the main exhibit hall. On display will be some of the latest concealable and tactical products offered under the Company’s various brands, including:
ARMIS 2.0: This highly scalable, advanced carrier system allows tactical units the flexibility to configure the body armor system to meet mission specific needs. This includes the option of a quick one-motion release system, exclusive WARSOC™ H3 buckle system for quick donning and doffing, ultra-lightweight laser-cut fabric option and ergonomic design for greater agility and substantially improved range of motion for the operator.
APC Gen IV: The new APC Gen IV Plate Carrier is designed to allow the operator to gain immediate protection against high powered threats. Blending the functionality of a tactical system with the simplicity of a plate carrier, the APC Gen IV features multiple points of adjustment, optional side pockets for hard armor plates, and maximum load bearing capabilities.
ODC Series: Point Blank’s latest Crossover carrier series includes the ODC Guardian, ODC Maverick, ODC Uniform, ODC MOLLE, ODC Laser, ODC Slick and ODC Standard. Highly versatile in design, the new Crossover carriers provide the ultimate combination of functionality, adaptability and protection. These carriers are able to easily integrate Point Blank concealable carriers directly into the carrier sleeve without removal of ballistics. Specially engineered to meet specific needs for equipment carrying requirements or duty assignment, the new Series breaks new ground in outer duty carriers.
ArmorVent™ Technology: ARMORVENT™ with EVAP™ Technology is available in Point Blank, PACA and PARACLETE® concealable, crossover and tactical vests. ARMORVENT™ utilizes a patent pending air channel ventilation pattern which helps to evaporate sweat. It also conducts heat away from the skin, prevents growth of bacteria and delivers continuous comfort, regardless of environmental temperature or duration of operation. ARMORVENT™ panels are available in multiple sizes and can be integrated into a carrier or purchased as a retrofit kit.
Special Ops Bunker (SOB): SOB Defense Systems fill the gap between body armor and armored vehicles. Situations often arise where operators need the confidence and security of head-to-toe ballistic coverage; body armor can’t provide that. Armored vehicles provide excellent coverage, but they cannot be taken through doorways, down hallways, or into elevators. SOB Defense Systems provide the highest level of protection possible while allowing for mobility, agility, and overall versatility in a variety of circumstances.
“The SHOT Show provides us with an excellent opportunity to differentiate our product lines, speak with both current and potential customers, and gain valuable insight on officers’ needs. We remain committed to delivering the most advanced body armor and protective outerwear products this industry has ever seen,” stated Daniel Gaston, CEO.
The SHOT Show is the largest, all-inclusive trade show for professionals involved with the shooting sports, hunting and law enforcement industries. It is the world's foremost exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics and related products and services. Professionals from all 50 states and more than 100 countries are expected to be in attendance. For additional insights, visit www.shotshow.org.
