Specialist Soft Armour Solutions and EOD Suits

Creative hubb welcome challenging projects and niche product areas. We have been the principal design team leading the design and development of the 3020 and 4020 range of Elite Bomb Disposal (EOD) Suits, these products are engineered using ballistic resistant fabrics to provide enhanced flexibility, advanced protection and ensure the highest levels of survivability. Working in accordance to various key military blast requirements and extensively blast tested against NIJ 01 17.01 Public Safety Bomb Suit Standard we were able to develop products with a lightweight ergonomic construction which incorporated a cutting edge patented quick release system.
