United Shield launches new E.R.T ballistic shield with PRF’s carbon prepreg

This month, United Shield have launched the E.R.T shield, a new multi-functional ballistic shield with dual sided shooting platforms and a host of other improved features. Incorporating feedback from officers in various US Firearms Units, this product satisfies the need for a lighter and more versatile ballistic shield without losing the product’s integrity, strength and toughness. Designed with the inclusion of PRF’s RP502 carbon prepreg, United Shield have been able to produce a 914mm x 609mm shield that is significantly lighter, at 5.5kg, but retains the required rigidity to perform its ballistic performance at NIJ Level IIIA.
