BALLISTIC DEFENCE BLOCK SYSTEM BDS-1

Developed to reduce environmental damage by using 100% recycled vehicle tyres, the BDS-1 has been ballistically tested and range proven for all commonly-used military, security and civilian small-arms calibres and ammo, including tracer and Chinese armour-piercing rounds up to .50 calibre.

The ingenious self-interlocking design allows the block to be quickly deployed, assembled, diassembled, or reconfigured without specialist knowledge, or additional materials .

The BDS-1 is suitable for most permanent, temporary, and mobile ballistic containment needs - firing ranges, military, security, civil or sporting facilities, battle halls and shoot houses, as well as front-line deployment as protective sangers and other defensive firing positions.

Our experienced design and production team can respond to any custom design or additional feature request very quickly and we are happy to discuss your specific ballistic containment requirements.

The modular design makes this an ideal cladding to create or enhance ballistic protectiion for most buildings and structures.  From military OP/GP/CPs to security checkpoints and border crossings, and protection of equipment housings, vital utilities sites and panic rooms and safe refuges.

The BDS-1 is available to order in any colour or disruptive pattern to blend in with it's surroundings and is fire safe, impervious to water and has excellent thermal insulation qualities too.

Not only are we working to reduce UK tyre mountains, but we are happy to discuss Manufacture Under License options for governments, to reduce their own local car tyre mountains - which may in some cases allow the utilisation of set-aside environmental funding.

When spent the BDS-1 block is recoverable and can be recycled into more blocks using the same cold process - making this an extremely environmentally efficient product.
