Ballistic jackets and over-vests

MKU offers a variety of ballistic jackets and vests for various applications and usages that meet the required threat levels adequately and effectively. At the same time they are comfortable to wear. These high performance jackets and vests are capable of providing protection levels upto NIJ level IIIA, allowing unrestricted movement to the user.

Up-armor inserts

At times, when threat levels change from handguns to heavier types of ammunition such as rifle bullets and more penetrating types of ammunition or even stabs, ballistic jackets and vests need to be up armoured with suitable lightweight protection to provide optimum protection.

MKU offers protection against the latest threats through its Armour Plates which are lighter, advanced and cost effective.

Ballistic shields

MKU ballistic shields are capable of providing protection against handguns, shotguns and submachine guns. The shields used for rifle protection are heavier and thicker and are usually mounted on wheels for easy mobility.

MKU’s high performance ballistic shields are ergonomically designed to maximise easy handling and lasting usage experience to the end customers. Developed with the latest high performance ballistic material technology, these shields are approved and tested as per established international standards.

Bomb blankets

MKU's Bomb Suppression Blanket is a unique product that provides emergency protection against blasts and fragments in event of an explosive device detonating before it can be neutralised. It is effective against most pipe bombs, hand grenades and fragments caused by pressure or electrical explosions. The Bomb Blanket can also be used as a temporary portable barrier for VIP’s, on windows or in place of several shields to protect the police in barricade situations. Other uses include protection of petrol explosives or grenades stored near probable explosion hit areas.

De-mining suits and gear

These are especially designed for personnel who are engaged in mine breaching and clearing operations. MKU de-mining suits not only protect against projectiles and high velocity fragments, but also against overt pressure and intense heat in close proximity of explosive detonation.

These suits employ high-tech materials for defeating multiple-threats.
