    Default ‘FlexFence’ Protects Against Rocket-Propelled Grenades

    Attachment 13120
    Posted by Michelle Tan
    Plasan’s FlexFence feels like a smooth leather seat, but this new protection system is designed to protect vehicles from the dreaded rocket-propelled grenades.

    FlexFence has been in the works for about a year and a half, said David Widerker, North Americamarketing director for Plasan.

    Weighing in at about 2 pounds per square foot, FlexFence is lighter than existing RPG protection systems, and it attaches more elegantly and closer to the vehicle’s body, providing better coverage, he said.

    The FlexFence also can be tailored to fit any vehicle, and damaged parts, like pieces to a puzzle, can be removed and replaced.

    Early tests have shown FlexFence has a 20 percent higher probability of stopping an RPG, Widerker said, and each square meter of the material can sustain up to four shots before becoming vulnerable.
