TenCate Advanced Armour New CXP Shield: New World’s Lightest Portable NIJ Level IV Shield

Friday, March 24th, 2017

TenCate Advanced Armour will reveal a new generation of ultra-lightweight portable anti-ballistic shields at this year’s SOFINS in France. The TenCate CXP shields, offering full NIJ 0108.01 level IV protection, are now more than 40% lighter than existing alternatives.

Military equipment has drastically changed over the last decade. Technologies such as C3I, weapon optics and body armour have improved the tactical awareness and effectiveness of the modern soldier. One of the drawbacks is the increasing operational load soldiers must carry and it is not unusual for Special Forces operators to carry 50 to 60kg per mission. Soldiers have never been better equipped, but also never been so overloaded and this has a direct influence on their mobility and capability to fight.

TenCate Advanced Armour is aware of this issue and devotes a maximum attention to the design and engineering of more protective, lighter, personal protection products. TenCate Advanced Armour is now presenting the latest development of its CXP series: the new Targa-Light CXP-802 TL.

The TenCate Targa-light™ CXP-802 TL shield offers full NIJ 0108.01 Level IV protection. Compared to existing products in the market, TenCate Advanced Armour have saved up to 40% in weight for the same protection surface, making the CXP-802 TL the lightest full Level IV shield in the world. At only 13.5 kg, the TenCate Targa-light™ CXP-802 TL is a milestone for TenCate Advanced Armour in its mission to provide the lightest functional personal protection equipment and increase individual soldier survivability. The true value of ultra-lightweight shields can be expressed in terms of increased operational capability and durability.

The new ultra-light shields will be able to accommodate a wealth of auxiliary equipment, including LED lights, day/night/IR cameras and leg protection.

The CXP-802 TL shield will be revealed at the SOFINS exhibition, held in Camp de Souge, Bordeaux (France) from 28-30 March. TenCate Advanced Armour is located on stand C38 and the shield will be available at the stand, along with a selection of personal protection and body armour solutions from TenCate Advanced Armour’s wide portfolio.

TenCate Advanced Armour is the global strategic partner in lightweight survivability systems and works with OEMs and end-users to provide the lightest survivability solutions available. TenCate Advanced Armour has wide experience in developing survivability solutions in accordance with customer requirements in terms of weight, protection level, and performance for air, sea, land and personal protection.

    Creedmoor Sports Promotes Gina Williams

    Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

    Gina Williams

    Creedmoor Sports is excited to announce the promotion of Gina Williams to the position of Customer Care and Operations Manager.

    Gina reports directly to Greg Kantorovich, President/Owner of Creedmoor Sports. Gina will be responsible for directing all matters in providing Creedmoor customers with the best customer service possible, in addition to managing Operations.

    “Gina’s 12 years of experience of working directly with Creedmoor’s customers provides her with a deep appreciation of the efforts required to provide superb service to Creedmoor’s customer base. Customers from all over the world have taken time to express how Gina treats them as if they were one of the Creedmoor family and how she truly enjoys helping them with their shooting needs,” explained Greg Kantorovich, President of Creedmoor Sports.

    “As Creedmoor’s customer base continues to grow, we felt it was important to have one person coordinating all the activities associated with customer care,” said Greg. “We have watched a lot of companies in growth periods and the first thing they seem to lose touch with is their commitment and involvement with their customers. We couldn’t think of anyone better than Gina to act as our guardian to ensure we always keep the close connection we have with our customers. This isn’t about making sure the packages go out the fastest in the industry or some metric that people pride themselves on achieving for measuring customer care. It is simply about focusing on our customers, keeping the personal connection with them, treating them as an individual and not as customer number umpteen thousand. Our customers chose to spend their free time in the precision rifle arena and with us. Trust me; Gina will make sure we help them enjoy every moment.”
