Turtleskin® Water Armor

Comprises:

 
 

A segmented panel personal armour system which gives outstanding protection against an accidental strike from a UHP water jet.

 
 

Turtleskin® is manufactured by a body armour specialist and uses Kevlar® woven to the tightest weave ever achieved.

 
 

The system consists of multiple panels to protect feet; legs; chest and arms if required.

 
 

Depending on the water blasting task, protection of only the metatarsal (upper) area of the feet might be required.

 
 

Panels can be replaced individually if damaged making the system highly cost-effective.

 
 

Protection is designed to be offered to the front of the operator – the open back design allows ventilation in hot environments making work possible in many environments where a enclosed protective suit would be intolerable.

Turtle Skin Water Armor Brochure

 


Turtleskin® has a tough outer layer which is easily washed.

Note that a flexible armour system like Turtleskin® cannot guarantee total protection against a sustained waterjet impact but it will, from experience, prevent penetration from glancing blows of waterjets as powerful as 55,000 psi (3,800 bar) at 8 litres per minute (2 gpm) water flow. It is unquestionably the best and most user-friendly protection available.
