Avon Protection has developed a new range of products to protect military personnel operating in CBRN environments: the EXOSKIN-B1 High Traction CBRN Boots and EXOSKIN-G1 Tactile CBRN Gloves, the company writes in a press release. Avon Protection developed the EXOSKIN range of boots and gloves to supplement its CBRN respiratory protection products to protect personnel without compromising the wearer’s tactical agility in the field. Designed to allow for the handling and operation of electronic touch screen devices, the EXOSKIN-G1’s ambidextrous glove features a rubberised outer layer textured to maintain grip in wet conditions, with an inner knitted liner that has a conductive tip on both the thumb and forefinger.
According to Avon, the EXOSKIN-B1 boot provides improved durability and agility in the field, with quick-release straps to secure the garment over standard footwear and is 100 per cent leak tested. Manufactured from Avon Protection’s rubber technology, both the EXOSKIN-G1 glove and EXOSKIN-B1 boot offer chemical warfare agent and toxic industrial chemical protection and are impermeable to biological agents, the company emphasises.
