BALLISTIC SHIELDING

Supergum’s ballistic protectors, known as ricochet trapping “rugs,” were developed and produced according to the requirements of local and international customers, using advanced technology and designated material compounds pursuant to the strictest international standards.

“Supergum’s” ballistic protectors are designed and produced for the highest level of protection

From the following aspects:

  • Significant deceleration of light weapon bullets of all calibers.
  • Maximum absorption of ricochets.
  • Providing an optimal protective mantle for shooting trainees and their proximate surroundings.

 

Suitable for firing ranges enclosed halls, open ranges and for protecting the lives of the combatants, including sensitive systems.

 

They are also suitable for bomb shelters, protected spaces and security rooms, bulletproof vehicles and other sensitive installations with flexible adaptation according to characterization and need.

 

The panels are produced in a range of shapes, sizes and colors. A unique and designated protective mantle can be “tailored” to training sites and specific operations according to the customer’s requirements and the nature of his needs, without prejudicing the product’s high ballistic performances.

 

Supergum’s ricochet absorbers are used by government security entities and professional security organizations in Israel and globally.

Supergum’s selection of ballistic protectors is based primarily on production technologies using two standard compounds:

  • Rubber with vulcanized fabric fibers.
  • Designated compounds and reinforced mixtures with ballistic textile fibers.

A Ricochet Trap

These ballistic protectors are produced from rubber and fabric fiber compounds. The primary uniqueness of the rubber integrated with vulcanized fabrics lies in the fact that it has the qualities of flowing and an ability for self-attachment. Therefore, the material does not develop tears in the bullets or ricochet impact areas

 

The ballistic rug is highly efficient for effectively trapping ricochets and decelerating bullets substantially.

The rugs are available in various sizes with a standard thickness of 10 mm or in any other size or thickness according to the customer’s needs and the nature of his requirements.

 

The rugs provide proven and highly reliable professional solutions over various firing ranges at very high safety levels.

Supergum’s ballistic rugs have had proven reliability over many decades.

Use of Supergum’s quality protectors upgrades the safety level for trainees at the ranges and substantially reduces the wear and tear of the stop butts and coated area.

“Sandwich” Ricochet Traps

A ricochet trap primarily intended for training installations in which ammunition from high muzzle velocity light weapons is fired.

The “sandwich, is a combination of a standard ricochet trap and natural or synthetic rubber adhered to each other.

The combination of the two qualities of the ricochet trap on the one hand and full rubber on the other hand substantially raises the product’s protection level.

This can be supplied in various thicknesses pursuant to the designation of the training installation and the customer’s needs.

Ballistic Block

The block is intended to replace the steel ballistic trap placed in the stop butt in closed ranges

 

The internal structure of the block is made from a mixture of rubber reinforced with various adhesive materials. The block has a unique internal layered structure, designed to trap, impound and contain the bullets inside it, thus serving as an independent stop butt/

bullet trap without the need for a large quantity of steel in the stop butt and all understood from this.

 

The block is in the final processes of development and firing trials

Light and very quick to install offering substantial savings in establishing the stop butt, with favorable acoustic qualities without any need for additional ballistic protection materials.

 

It can be ordered in various sizes and in a number of colors.

Pyramid

Base / stand for carrying the target column, made from cast synthetic rubber with the following dimensions:


Base: 320X320 mm. Height: 150 mm Weight: Approx. 5 kg.


At the top of the pyramid there is a space that penetrates into any height according to the dimensions of the column.


It serves as a light, convenient stable stand for the rapid dispersal of targets in the range area, primarily in complex exercises.


Resistant to strong winds and traps ricochets.

Protection Flooring

Ricochet trap type flooring, made from a compound of reinforced rubber materials, ballistic fabrics and adhesive materials into which shooting is possible with the utmost safety without fear of ricochets and/or bouncing bullets

 

The flooring is intended primarily for protecting designated drilling installations in dense surroundings (such as: Aircraft, buses, trains etc.…), for the purposes of live shooting and which is currently being produced in dimensions of 500X500 mm with a thickness of: 45 mm

Installing a steel bullet absorber behind the flooring is recommended for protecting the intactness of the installation.

“Vilonmer”

A curtain made entirely from natural or, alternatively, synthetic rubber, which serves primarily as the initial forward component in the stop butt/bullet trap in closed ranges.

 

The major purpose of the “vilonmer” is to decelerate and trap the bullets as an initial protective layer prior to them reaching the bullet trap in the stop butt. Thus, diminishing the damage to the stop butt and preserving its functionality over time.

 

Its secondary purpose is to trap some of the ricochets bouncing off the stop butt (where no ricochet traps have been installed.

The “vilonmer” is highly flexible and can be manufactured with a width of 1 mm and various lengths (even more than 10 m) and its dimensions can be adapted to the training installation without losing any material remnants. It is available in various thicknesses from 6 mm to more than 20 mm conditional on the customer’s needs, the type of ammunition and the shooting ranges at the range.

Rubber with Vulcanized Fabric Fibers

These ballistic protectors are produced from rubber and fabric fiber compounds. The primary uniqueness of the rubber integrated with vulcanized fabric fibers lies in the fact that it has the qualities of flowing and an ability for self-attachment. Therefore, the material does not develop tears in the bullet or ricochet impact areas

 

The ballistic rug is highly efficient for effectively trapping ricochets and decelerates

bullets substantially.

 

The rugs are available in various sizes and a standard sickness of 10 mm or in any other size or thickness according to the customer’s needs and the nature of his requirements.

 

The rugs provide proven and highly reliable professional solutions for various shooting ranges at very high safety levels.

Supergum’s ballistic rugs have had proven reliability over many decades.

Use of Supergum’s quality protectors upgrades the safety level for trainees at the ranges and substantially reduces the wear and tear of the stop butts and coated area.

Designated compounds and reinforced mixtures with ballistic fabric fibers

This range of Supergum’s ballistic fibers is produced from a binder compound and rubber mixture reinforced with ballistic fabric fibers. The structure of the material guarantees substantial deceleration of the bullets that impact with it and penetrate through it.

In order to upgrade the strengthening qualities and protect the ability and absorption of the material (as required under unique extreme conditions), integrating additional substances into the fabric /block structure is possible, for example:  Kevlar or Nomex fibers. 

The types of bullets fired at the range, the required size of the fabric / block necessary for the approved firing ranges at the specific training site, the quantity of bullets fired in a section of the given size of the area from a statistical aspect with the “woven” security coefficients for characterizing the site and defining the protection ability against the defined cluster of bullets of various calibers and ranges, must be taken into account

The shape and final dimension of the fabric / block is adjusted to the structural engineering requirements of the site and the customer’s unique requirements. Fabric / blocks can be ordered in a range of sizes and thicknesses. Supergum’s standard fabric /ballistic blocks are manufactured in a standard size of 20x20x30 cm for facilitating assembly and installation.
