Kenno Tech's modular shield system commissioned by UN peace keepers in Lebanon

Kenno Tech’s Balpro™ Protector modular ballistic shield system has been taken into use with the UNIFIL peace keeping operation in Lebanon. Camp wall assembled from the system can protect even against 155 mm artillery shells.

Balpro™ Protector is a modular steel element system. A system set contains seven 6-metre long ballistic shield elements, which enables construction of e.g. 42 metres of camp wall or a shelter. In its transport configuration a system set is a 20 ft container. The system is continually being developed and the latest addition to the Balpro™ products is a watch tower.

In 2012 Kenno Tech was awarded a Finnish patent for the Balpro™ Protector system and a European EP patent is pending.
