SCHROTH has been designing and manufacturing seatbelt harness systems since the 1950’s and have now put over 60 years of development and crash test experience into mine blast protected seating solutions.

In addition to the exceptional blast protection offered by the SCHROTH SU-6X family of mine blast seating, the SBSP adds a layer of light-weight soft ballistic protection to the mine blast proven seating systems.

The light- weight soft ballistic solution provides protection for the head, back, sides and the seat pan from small anti-personnel landmine shrapnel, hand grenades and handguns. The SBSP further increases the survivability in both open transport / troop carriers and protected armored vehicles. The SBSP is also easily removable from the seat and can be used as secondary ballistic protection (soft body armor/fragmentation shield).
