Guardian Antiballistic Replacement Door Skins (GARDS) Available - New Product

US Global Nanospace, Inc. has announced that the new Guardian™ Antiballistic Replacement Door Skin (GARDS™) for the AM General HMMWVV (commonly pronounced Hum-Vee) are now available for shipment to authorized agencies and deployed units. GARDS are lightweight and flexible antiballistic panels designed to protect vehicle occupants in elevated-threat locations.

GARDS™ are attached in the field to the interior of the existing HMMWVV doorframe, upgrading threat level protection to NIJ Level IIIA, providing for a radical increase in protection from small arms fire, projectiles, fragmentation and shrapnel when compared to the original equipment fabric doors. GARDS installs in fifteen minutes, weighs under six pounds per panel, requires no maintenance and as the original door structure and canvas cover remain intact is unnoticeable from the outside of the vehicle.

GARDS’ strength, durability and low weight is a result of US Global’s G-Lam™ nano-fiber anti-ballistic material. G-Lam™ is created with a patent-pending process that results in mechanical properties far superior to common anti-ballistic composite materials. US Global has developed G-Lam™ nano-scale materials specifically for such applications and in GARDS will provide maximum protection against small arms fire, fragmentation and shrapnel. G-Lam™ is also impervious to petroleum distillates and maintains performance at temperatures in excess of 400 degrees Fahrenheit. US Global developed the G-Lam-based S.A.G. Turret for the HMMWVV to withstand up to .50 caliber fire and is currently expanding its acceptance with US and allied Armed Forces.

GARDS for the HMMWVV are available for immediate export to allied forces. GARDS for Landrover and Unimog vehicles are available as well.
