Naval armour

Modular systems exterior


TenCate Advanced Armour can provide ship builders and end-users with the highest level of protection for naval vessels. For the exterior, TenCate Advanced Armour can provide TenCate Ceratego™ modular hard armour panels to provide protection for mission critical areas onboard. The panels are modular in order to provide crews with an easy in-field repair capability to increase the survivability of the vessel. The panels are light in weight to decrease any negative impact a high level armour could have on payload and maneuverability. Furthermore, the coating of the panels increases the salt water and sunlight resistance of the panels to ensure end-users with the highest level of protection in all environmental circumstances.    

TenCate Advanced Armour can provide special armour solutions for all kinds of large naval vessels. The armour panels can be tailored to end-user demands with regards to weight and protection level and can be integrated into OEM designs or mounted on vessels as retro-fit applications.   

Modular systems interior


TenCate Advanced Armour modular systems for interior applications provide crews and personnel onboard with outstanding protection against penetrating threats. TenCate modular interior systems mitigate the effects of blast and significantly reduce fragment cones from penetrating projectiles. The systems are modular to provide crews with and in-field repair capability and overall increased survivability.     

The addition of TenCate modular systems interior will increase the protection level of any existing solution significantly with little negative impacts on weight or maneuverability. TenCate Advanced Armour can provide the system as a retro-fit application to an existing structure, as an OEM design integration, or in combination with hard armour exterior systems to provide end-user with unmatched protection.


Lightweight protection

Seaworthiness is a major consideration in ship design. To contribute to this, TenCate Advanced Armour lightweight protective products out-perform most other materials in reducing the weight above the Vessel Specific Gravity point (VSG), particularly in comparison with steel armour. This weight reduction helps in operational performance whilst ensuring the level of protection is at the maximum. Consideration also has to be given to the armour mounting system, which has to withstand the torque and resonance frequency vibrations of the ship, along with the effects of saltwater – a highly corrosive environment.
