Arns­berg, Ger­many Feb, 2012 – SCHROTH Safe­ty Prod­ucts (SCHROTH) con­tin­ues to re-define the bound­aries of light-weight occu­pant pro­tec­tion with the SCRHOTH Bal­lis­tic Seat Pro­tec­tion (SBPS) sys­tem.

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).
