Morgan Advanced Materials' new lightweight, highly mobile trolley protection system

The latest innovation from Morgan Advanced Materials’ Composite and Defence business acts as a mobile wall in the event of enemy fire.

The presence of a trolley system ensures that soldiers can continue to move uninhibited, confident in the knowledge they are well protected from enemy bullets. In situations where conflict can break out at a moments notice, it is important that soldiers of police are fully equipped to respond quickly and efficiently to any potential threats. The unique design of the system ensures that shields can be quickly removed and reconnected to the trolley as required, guaranteeing protection without hindering agility in any way.

A pioneer in world-leading ballistics technology, Morgan’s range of LASA® Ballistic Shields offer superior protection to NIJ 0101.08 Level III and the following special threats: 7.62 x 51mm 149gr M80 FMJ; 5.56 x 45mm 55gr Ball (M193); and 7.62 x 39mm 123gr PS Ball (Mild Steel Core).

Despite the superior levels of protection on offer, the use of specially-developed proprietary composite materials allows for exceptional multi-hit performance at a significantly lower weight than many alternative solutions currently available on the market, in some cases by 20%.
