Better To Be Safe Than To Be Sorry!

     In times of disasters and bad situations the groundwork, strategy and tools of protection is the most important weapon. We can see the people of forces full with plenty of weighty things, particularly when they are in the situation of war in order to reinstate the peace. The defense forces in the army are fully provided with the military hardware and protect against any mishap. The most obvious self-protective tools on their bodies, excluding guns, are ballistic vest and ballistic helmets which guard them against the bullets fired by the foe.

A ballistic vest which is also known as a bullet resistant vest is a guard to stay safe and unhurt not in favor of the shotgun fires and the blasts of small grenades. The bullets move at a high velocity and they can tear apart an exposed body. Therefore, the soldiers are required to be provided with these jackets as they are all encircled by the bullets and blast of hand grenades.

The value of a ballistic vest is great as it is the most vital protective guard worn of the body and it keeps the soldiers protected against any bullets fired. It is a simple attempt of suicide if the soldiers enter the battlefield with no any defensive guards. The police used them too, especially when they are in the emergency situation and have to control the disturbance or they have an encounter in opposition to the criminals.

Another vital defensive tool is the ballistic helmet, known as combat helmet as well, which is very important. The vest is to shield the heart and the helmet is to shelter the head and they are deemed to be one of the oldest items for protection of the human body. Helmets are as widespread as they are worn by the bikers while riding in the routine riding. Likewise, the ballistic helmets are especially designed for the defense force so that they can stay uninjured during a fight.

Identical to the significance of ballistic vest and ballistic helmet, the worth of emergency equipments is no less significant than these things and it the disaster equipment also lies under the grouping of security products as it also help save lives.

Bullet resistant glass, also known as transparent armor, is a form of tough but optically see-through material that is mainly resistant to being pierced when struck by bullets. Bullet resistant glass is usually constructed in such a way that it gives the look and lucidity of standard glass but with valuable protection from small arms.

The plastic offers resistance to shock from physical assault however provides minimal protection whereas the glass is way firm than plastic and thus is capable of flattening the bullets and put a stop to penetration.

Their purpose of these defensive tools is to defend and prevent any internal disturbance and preserve the law and order condition at the time of emergency. Hence, to make the protection arrangements improved and protected, the requirement to make protective tools and equipments was indispensable.
