1. Anti-Riot Shields and Lathi presently being used are of sub standard quality, inadequately designed,cannot withstand
vigorous operational conditions and Indian temperatures. These tend to break/crack with prolonged usage and even under
storage conditions. Also these have not been tactically designed with Law Enforcement situations in mind. For example the
lathi being used are unwieldy and do not lend itself to “Hands Free Principal”. Similarly in case of the Shield, there is very
limited protection (in the form of thin foam) from direct transfer of trauma from blows on to the holder.
2. Anti-Riot Shields. The shield currently inservice has a major design flaw – in that on impact the entire
trauma/pain is transfered to the holder (as there is only a thin foam protection – which over 2-3 month usage – flattens up).
Further due to inherent design flaw (too many holes/drills in the shield) the PC sheet losses it structural strength and tend to
crack on lightest blow and even in storage condition. The new and modern Impact Resistant Shield being suggested
overcomes these inherent problems due to following reasons:-
(a) Inner ergonomically shaped reinforcing plate (double) with an air pocket dampens efficiently
impacts/vibrations on holding hand. The vaccum ensures no trauma/pain/vibration is passed on the holder.
(b) The given shield is ambidextorous (Universal - Left or Right hand use)in the sensee can held by
right or left hand and also supported by the other free hand as needed.
(c) V-shaped face of the shield have been designed so as to conduct blows efficiently aside.
(d) These toughened shields(made of high-quality, extremely resistant polycarbonate with thickness
3 mm -which can be increased upon request upto 5 mm) besides withstanding the battering of Axe, Knife,
Sword, Iron rod and even Buck shot - can also withstand the weight of 4 wheeler vehicle move.
(e) Models available are the Impact Resistant Shield- ASUD-60-100 and ASRU-60-100.
3. Batons/Lathis. Lathi presently being used are of poor/sub standard quality, crude and unwieldy in design. As
these have not been tactically and ergonomically designed with Law Enforcement situations in mindthey do not lend
themselves to “Hands Free Principal”. Hence the current Lathi besides giving an unprofessional look to the soldier/policeman
tends to engage his one hand permanently and continuously (even when he does not need to use it).Two options available
as part of the Modern soldier/policeman is as follows:-
(a) Expandable Baton. High-quality metal/poly-carbonate expandable batons (three-part friction
lock) are made in hardened (police) versions with Anti-slip handle with indented surface lends itself to the
“Hands Free Combat Ready Concept”. The baton besides being a proficient weapon system for unarmed
combat can be converted into multi-facet ultra-light tactical tools and can be used for variety of roles/tasks.
With a length of only 9/10 inches (+ 0.5inch) in closed position and seated in a belt mounted plastic holder
it is an ideal non-lethal equipment at the disposal of a Policeman. Expandable Batons are available in Gun
metal as well as PC/Nylon/Rubber. Tactical accessories available with the Baton are as follows:-
(i) M2 Tactical Mirror with Nylon Pouch.
(ii) BL 01 Flashlight with Nylon Pouch.
(iii) Special Impact Window Breaker with Nylon Pouch.
(iv) Crowbar (Two Teeth).
(v) Crowbar (Single Teeth).
(vi) Rescue Axe.
(vii) Wire Cutter.
(b) Tonfa’s and Straight Police Baton. Modern day - Tonfa’s and Straight Baton have been
designed by Law Enforcement Agencies/Users – putting in years of experience in Law enforcement and
policing role. These quietly seat in the belt of the soldier/policeman during routine police work and can be
drawn and used as effectively/conveniently to conduct the role/work performed by today Lathi. Options
(i) Tonfas- TF- 24/59.
(ii) ExpandableTonfas- EXT- 20/52.
(iii) Classical Straight Police Baton- PB/PBS.
4. Pepper Spray- Pepper Spray represents a completely new category of defensive sprays, which at present
has no equivalent on the market with defensive sprays. A super-bright flashlight with white LED diode was added to the
classical defensive spray. Most of critical situations, during which people defend themselves by defensive sprays, takes
place particularly in darkness. It is impractical to hold flashlight in one hand and spray in the other one. Moreover it is quite
problematic to co-ordinate movements of both hands at critical situations. At the same time it is necessary to aim the spray
precisely at the attacker’s face and flashlight should therefore light the place where irritating gas should hit the adversary.
Our „spray flashlights“ now make it possible to handle both flashlight and the spray with one hand only and to use thus the
other hand for better defence. Beam of light enables precise aiming at the target. The company ESP has contributed by this
significant innovation of defensive sprays to enhancement of general level of self-defence.
5. Safety Panoramic Mirror- Detection mirror serves for inspection of hazardous spaces and for pyrotechnical
controls. Angular parabolic shape is very advantageous as it greatly increases angle of observation. The mirror uses
duralumin lightweight telescopic rod, the length of which can be adjusted from 500 mm to 1050 mm and then collapsed back
to compact dimensions. Anti-skid handle enables safe grip. The mirror can be removed from the rod for easier transport.
Mirror version with lighting DM-160 L uses a flashlight with 14 LED diodes “FL-3AAA-14 LED”. Power supply is ensured by 3
alkaline AAA batteries, the flashlight is fastened right to the mirror, which means that lighting does not depend on mutual
position of the mirror and the rod and it enables an optimum illumination of the searched space.
