POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- DHB Industries Inc. (OTC-PINK:DHBT.PK) (Pink Sheets:DHBT.PK), a leader in the field of protective body armor, announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Point Blank Body Armor has received a three-year contract with the Texas Department of Public Safety. As per the agreement, Point Blank Body Armor will supply its VISION(TM) concealable vest to all Texas State Troopers.
Commenting on today's announcement, Sam White, President of Point Blank Body Armor stated, "Officer safety has and continues to be a primary focus and we have developed a full suite of products that we feel, provide the highest performance and safety in the industry. We are pleased that the Texas Department of Public Safety has recognized the quality of our products and chosen Point Blank as its supplier of choice."
VISION is the first total body armor system that integrates high performance ballistic materials with an innovative carrier design featuring temperature regulating technologies, antimicrobial protection and the company's exclusive Moisture Control System. These innovations result in significantly cooler, dryer and more comfortable all-day performance. Additionally, VISION, an NIJ Certified product, is one of the lightest weight vests available in the market today and is engineered to provide greater range of motion, allowing officers to maneuver easily, while providing superior performance and maximum comfort.
Features and benefits of VISION include: * Patented self-suspending ballistic system prevents rolling and sagging of ballistic panels inside the carrier. * Soft, temperature regulating inner surface helps keep the user cooler and is treated with Microban(R) to resist the growth of odor-causing mold and mildew. * Zero-drag, soil resistant micro-fiber outer surface reduces bunching and pulling under the uniform shirt. * Exterior mid-torso zipper opening for convenient ballistic panel insertion and removal. * Removable 2" or 4" waist straps provide 8-point adjustability. * Ergonomic design provides extensive protective coverage and maximum mobility.
