Bomb Blankets Saving Lives

Bomb Blankets are used for blast mitigation and minimizing the risk of secondary fragmentation from Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). They are effective against most pipe bombs, hand grenade fragments, fragmentation caused by pressure, and electrical explosions.

Utilizing the latest in Aramid and Armormax™ technologies, International Armoring manufactures bomb blankets by stitching layers of Armormax™ with other proprietary materials, providing a lightweight, flexible bomb suppression blanket that better absorbs the blast impact and resulting fragmentation minimizing blast impact.
