Point Blank inks deal with G2 Consulting

Point Blank Solutions Inc, a leader in the field of protective body armor announced that it entered into an agreement with G² Consulting to market a line of electroshock weapon protection systems.

Emerging domestic and international threats have generated a growing interest in the use of less-than-lethal weapons by government and law enforcement agencies. Electroshock devices such as TASERS help officers reduce injuries by incapacitating dangerous, combative or high-risk subjects. Until G²'s patented ThorShield technology, there has been no protection for officers if their weapon is turned against them.

Point Blank has teamed up exclusively with G² Consulting, architect of ThorShield and other electroshock weapon protection solutions, to integrate this technology into Point Blank Body Armor and PACA body armor products. ThorShield works by providing a highly conductive specialized layer of fabric that ensures the electric current discharged from the weapon flows through the lining rather than the body.

The protective material can be applied to officers' garments and equipment such as body armor, shirts, jackets, training suits, gloves, and hats. Important to ThorShield's design is that it can allow for greater flexibility at less weight, without compromising protection. The lining is breathable and provides the comfort essential to officers in the field.

According to preliminary data released by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) and Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), officers are being confronted by more brazen, heavily armed and violent criminals than in years past, and firearms-related assaults and fatalities are on the rise.
