Jankel BLASTech unveiled at DSEI 2015, International Defense Exhibition in London, UK.
     
Following on from the contract award earlier this year, Jankel has designed, developed, manufactured and tested the seat, which will be integrated onto the platform destined for service with the UK MoD as part of the Army 2020 fleet. Meeting exacting user requirements, the seat provides specific ergonomic design and unrivalled protection against blast threats, creating an innovative solution for vehicle seating.

Additionally Jankel has successfully developed a method of testing its survivability systems to the extremely high dynamic loads experienced in the initial stage of a blast event, of peaks up to 11,000 G. Using a bespoke surrogate blast test rig, Jankel have reproduced the loading input which occurs during the initial and most extreme phase of the blast event. This test method is used in addition to the physical drop test performed on BLASTech seat systems to fully verify survivability due to exposure to both dynamic and global vehicle accelerations.

Jankel has also developed a brand new solution to combat the physical effects associated with Whole Body Vibration (WBV). Utilising a user proven and patented air bladder cushion, Jankel has proved in comparative trials a significant reduction in WBV seen in heavy engineering and tracked vehicle platforms. The system is extremely modular and can be retrofitted to legacy or new vehicle fleets.

Since 2008 Jankel has continued to deliver pioneering seating solutions across the world and are proud to announce that over 70,000 units have been sold to date. With production facilities in the UK, USA and Jordan, Jankel are able to support global programmes and requirements no matter how high the specification.

“Jankel is committed to developing its products and testing capability” commented Lee Palmer, Chief Engineer at Jankel “and are excited about the opportunities that our new technologies provide. Creating these new methodologies has allowed Jankel to build and test floor mounted seats that combat the effects of dynamic floor movement. This is as well as implementing a brand new solution for combating the effects of Whole Body Vibration to users. These advances in protection are proving that Jankel are, once again, striving to provide safer working environments for troops.”
