Bomb Suits and Search Suits

Bomb Suits and Search Suits by Holdfast Systems

We are pleased to offer Berry Amendment-compliant PPE for de-mining, search, EOD and security teams. The FFI Tactical Series III & Series IV EOD Bomb Suits from Holdfast Systems have evolved over years of tests, development, and feedback from customers. Holdfast Systems has an active and intensive blast testing program that provides significant insight as to how the products perform. Historically, the EOD Suit design has fallen into one of two versions; either a suit with heavy protection but with restricted mobility or one with improved mobility but achieved at the expense of protection. The Series III and IV suits bridge this gap by providing the protection of a heavy bomb suit but the mobility of a tactical, lightweight suit.

Series III EOD Helmet

The Series III EOD Helmet improves on its predecessor in a number of ways … Firstly there is a high-tech ventilation fan that still delivers superior airflow in to the helmet but greatly reduces vibration and noise levels. The Series III Helmet comes standard with a Kermel® comfort liner and spare with built in communications. This provides excellent comfort and cushioning for the head. The helmet has a 4 point adjustable Suspension System. The series III Helmet also comes standard with a higher protection level for the visor. The Series III Helmet has ambient sound amplification with high-level noise cut out. This helmet integrates with the SERIES III EOD Suit and electronic management system.
