HTS INC AND ARMORWORKS PARTNER TO SUPPLY COMFORTABLE, STAB, SPIKE AND BALLISTIC PROTECTION TO POLICE, CORRECTIONS AND MILITARY.
Vancouver BC, February 21, 2012 – HTS Inc, announced today that it is partnering with ArmorWorks Canada to add Stab, Spike and Ballistic protection to its blunt trauma protective gear. The HTS 5 is essentially a two-piece full body undergarment that provides protection and reduces the chance of injuries sustained from blunt instruments and weapons such as sticks, bats and bricks. Now by seamlessly adding the appropriate shields the HTS 5 also protects against attacks from edged weapons, such as knives and shanks as well as firearms.
“Our biggest challenge when trying to add ballistic and stab protection to the HTS 5 has been maintaining comfort and wear ability. The experts at ArmorWorks with their uncompromising approach to material selection, design and engineering, managed to come up with a solution, which seamlessly adds NIJ certified stab and ballistic protection to our suits without compromising comfort and freedom of movement”, said HTS CEO Paul Mann.
“Our partnership with ArmorWorks Canada now gives us the ability to provide and supply covert protection to all areas of law enforcement and military.
Brian Dawe of the American Correctional Officer Intelligence Network (ACOIN) said, “Corrections officers face an unacceptable level of workplace violence, I believe that the addition of stab protection to this already amazing product will undoubtedly one day save someone’s life”.
Martin Cronin of ArmorWorks Canada said “ We are delighted to be working with HTS on this equipment. By bringing together our respective areas of class leading expertise we are able to offer the next generation of multi-threat protection. Everything that we do is about preserving the lives of those who serve and this represents a great step forward.”
