Anti Mine Boots

ANTI MINE BOOTS

Landmines: cheap, indiscriminate and lethal. In 2016, 26 people per day were killed or lost a limb to landmines. As a result, they remain a deadly problem with minefields present in 61 countries around the world.

The PPE100 Anti Mine Boot has been unavailable for several years but has been re-introduced now due to overwhelming customer demand. They are now available to mine clearance teams to help protect their personnel from the traumatic damage caused by anti-personnel mines.

The multi-layered composite design reduces the effect of the blast and fragments on the feet and legs which reduces the injury significantly. Furthermore, the knee length ballistic gaiters prevent flash burns and limit fragment penetration into the lower legs.

Customer testing has shown the outstanding effectiveness of the PPE100 with the best protective performance, comfort and usability of any anti-landmine boot on the market for charges up to 56g C4.

The PPE100 Anti-Mine Boot:

– significantly reduces the level of injury

– the composite sole shields and reduces the effects of shock and blast over pressure on the foot

– gaiters protect against flash burns and fragment penetration on the legs

– a strong upper section supports the lower leg, foot and ankle

– diminishes the effect of land mines on both legs

– easy to walk in and comfortable to wear all day

PPE100 Anti-Mine Boots are built to order and are issued with a two-year warranty..
