MATBOCK Monday || LIFT Ladder

Monday, February 5th, 2018

LIFT Ladder is part of a multi-product system, and over the next few weeks, we will look at all of the various products that are found in this revolutionary system. The Combat Carbon Poles are the backbone of the entire system, which allows operators to tailor the kit for different missions in ever-changing battlefields.

The LIFT Ladder was built so operators could scale and bridge obstacles with ease at only 4.975lbs. It comes with a 400lbs load capacity and is built from American made Carbon Fiber. This short video was taken at the MATBOCK HQ, to show the quick assembly of this ladder and how compact the ladder rungs are when the poles are not attached.

Technical Specifications:
Material – Carbon Fiber / Spectra Cord
Total Weight: 4.975 Pounds
Weight without poles: 2.375 Pounds
Dimensions folded up (without poles): 3in x 3in x 12in

MATBOCK Monday || ARD Sight

2EC98B56-01B5-4073-8A46-AD43229291DB

The MATBOCK ARD (Aquire Read Deploy) is a new 40mm weapon sight designed and manufactured in the USA.  Made from anodized aluminum and mountable on either side or top rails, the sight has a digital LCD screen that outputs the range of 40mm projectiles given the angle of the weapon, the weapon system and the round used.  Currently, the sight is configured for m203, 320, PGL6 weapon platforms as well as multiple rounds to include HE and non-lethal rounds.  More weapons and rounds are to be brought online and each weapon sight can be updated with the new software.  The simplicity of the sight is what makes it so adaptable in a firefight.  Simply estimate the range of the enemy and raise the weapon to achieve that desired distance.  After the first round impact is visualized, the operator can adjust fire to bring him/her on target very quickly.

The images below are a preproduction version and the production model is half the size and weight of those pictured.  The unit runs off of a 123 battery and has 2 buttons to turn the unit on and off, cycle through the menus, and select the line desired.  MATBOCK currently has multiple Gen 1 models available for testing with the Gen 2 models expected to come off the manufacturing line in just 8 weeks.  Please contact admin@matbock.com to request a testing model.

MATBOCK Monday || BLS

Monday, January 15th, 2018

IMG_6140

The BLS is a joint project between MATBOCK and MAS Special Ops Training. Its a patent pending Bench, Ladder, Stretcher designed for Wing and Zodiac inflatable boats. The BLS is sold as a pair (bottom and upper sections) and designed to deploy as a unit. For the inflatables, it sits across the side tubes and can be secured to the floor with either ratchet straps or line (not included in the kit) giving space for 4 operators to sit forward facing during transit. When reaching the landing site or ship to be boarded, the sections can be attached together to create a 12 foot ladder with integrated shepherds hooks and offset ladder rungs. Additionally, the ladder rungs are coated on the top surface with nonslip to help prevent falls due to wet surfaces. If there is a casualty, a single section can be used as a stretcher to evacuate the individual as well. Four handles protrude from the sides to aid in transport as well as for positioning the ladder.

Each section is 69″ tall, 17.5″ wide, weighs 20.5lbs and made of aluminum with welded connections throughout the system.

Additionally, the BLS comes with grip feet on the lower section to help prevent the bottom from kicking out while being used as a ladder.

Finally, add-on floatation for each section will be available in the coming weeks.

The unit can be purchased from either MATBOCK or MAS Special Ops Training in the links below.

MATBOCK Monday || 1 – Day Assault Pack

Monday, January 8th, 2018

This is the new 1 Day Assault Pack from MATBOCK.

IMG_5953

Made of the MATBOCK Ghost Lite material, it is extremely lightweight, water resistant with YKK Uretek zippers throughout and offers some great new features. The main pouch is designed to hold a PRC-117G radio with a small admin pouch on the inside as well. On the top of the main pouch are two comms outlets made of medical grade gasket material to make a waterproof seal around even the largest radio antennas and smallest comms cables to prevent water entering the pack during inclement weather. The comms ports can be closed off when not in use. The shoulder yoke system is adjustable vertically to accommodate plates and any other gear possibly mounted on the back. The side pouches are large enough to hold a standard nalgene water bottle with compression straps and bungee closures at the top.

One of the coolest features of the back is the upper pouch. Upon opening, a secondary main pouch is stored that effectively doubles the capacity of the bag with another completely water resistant storage space. This secondary bag folds all the way open and is lined on the inside with loop velcro offering a great storage space for extra med kit, SSE collected on target, or even just an extra puffy layer. The pouch attaches at the bottom of the pack as well to ensure it doesn’t move around when worn.

The pack only weighs 1.9 lbs and is available immediately for $380.00 MSRP.

Monday, January 1st, 2018

The Patent Pending MATBOCK Skins are a multi-layer adhesive/fabric laminate designed to give the user the ability to camouflage any surface desired.

Currently, MATBOCK has Skins specifically laser cut for the Team Wendy Exfil Ballistic, LTP and Carbon Bump helmets (Size 1 and 2) as well as for 3M Peltor COMTAC III Headsets.

MATBOCK Monday – OsteoFX Casting System

Monday, December 18th, 2017

The OsteoFX Casting System from MATBOCK is now fully in stock and has been added to the DAPA schedule. We introduced this a few months back, but MATBOCK now has the system fully available in different diameters from 2 inches (pediatric) up to 5 inches, all in various lengths for arms and legs. The cast system is easier to use than current systems, available at the same cost, and reduces some of the risks involved with current technologies. With the roll on method, there is reduced pain to the patient during application as well as the elimination of the risk of over tightening compared to wrapping methods. Additionally, because the system can breathe and dry, there is no reason for recasting in the event of exposure to water such as showering or swimming and these activities are encouraged with the OsteoFX. The material is also radiolucent for an X-rays that may be needed after application.

“We are very excited to bring this product to market, not only for the hospital systems in the rear, but also for the operators in the field. The casting system makes a great splint or brace in the event of a turned ankle and can be made removable in cases with risks of compartmentalization.”

FDA Approved
Reimbursable
Easy to apply with less mess
Lightweight and breathable
Water resistant for swimming and showering
Little to no skin issues
Superior radiolucency
Cost effective with reduced application times and reduced waste
