TenCate Targa-light™ ballistic shields


TenCate Targa-light™ is a range of special anti-ballistic shields designed to provide personnel with the best possible protection against many different types of ammunition. 

They can be equipped with a full range of optional equipment, including ballistic glass, foldable legs, lights, upgraded protection, wheeled chassis, transport bag and a carrying system. This carrying system allows the weight of the shield to be carried on both shoulders, and can be removed in seconds by the user alone. 

TenCate Targa-light™ shields are light in weight, making sure the user can move around easily. This results in greater user endurance during operations under extreme conditions. The shields are also very resistant to shocks and impact, enabling the user to operate without worrying about damaging the shield. 

TenCate Targa-light™ ballistic protection equipment also features a high multi-hit capability, ensuring an outstanding degree of safety even if the shield is hit by multiple projectiles.

Customised solutions

TenCate Targa-light™ is available for customised solutions. These ballistic protection shields feature a modular design. This design makes it possible for each customer to decide on the specific shape, size, level of protection, finish and accessories required.

TenCate Targa-light™ thus makes it possible to provide each user with a shield tailored to particular needs, situational requirements and threat levels. TenCate Targa-light™ solutions cover the full ballistic protection range, as well as providing users with whatever they need to meet specific requirements regarding finish and shape.

Protective coatings

The edges are made of resin, which make the shields very robust and shock resistant. The shields can also be coated with TenCate Rosist™ in a range of different finishes and fabrics. TenCate Rosist™ is a multi-resistant protectant that provides TenCate Targa-light™ with additional capabilities.

It can withstand the effects of wear and tear, dirt, cleaning, exposure, detergents and decontaminating agents. These features result in a highly durable coating product with low wear and tear, thus ensuring operating costs that comply with customer requirements regarding value for money.

TenCate Rosist™ can be sprayed to provide different surface finishes, ranging from granular to smooth, depending on the specific needs of each customer.
