Kent – Ballistic Shield
The United Shield Kent shield is one of the most popular products in the Company´s range of ballistic shields. It was designed in conjunction with officers from the Kent Police Tactical Firearms Unit in the United Kingdom, to satisfy a need for a shield which was light and versatile, while being strong and robust. The shield is ambidextrous, so that left and right handed operators can use the same shield quickly and without any need to change handle positions.
It is very adaptable when used in different tactical situations such as dynamic entry, hostage situations, domestic situations, routine patrol and casualty evacuation. The integrated weapon mount provides for single handed operation, allowing operators to deploy their weapon without exposing their arm. The shield has three vertical soft handles for ease of carrying and stowage.
