The BDS-1 can be finished in flat or mottled colours or disruptive patterns for any theatre of operation


The BDS-1 Ballistic Defence Block is a quickly deployable ballistic wall that can provide protection from hostile fire with a tested containment capability from side-arms, and machine pistols up to .50 calibre, including sniper rifles, tracer and Chinese A/P rounds.

The self interlocking modular construction means that it can be quickly erected to create standalone protective walls or an internal or external containment layer to existing structures, or operational buildings likely to attract hostile fire or terrorist attack.

Typical military and security use will add protection to observation and sentry posts, checkpoints and road blocks, border crossings, buffer zones points, command posts and similar, while civilian applications include enhancing the resilience of equipment housings, utility and communication centres, and safe refuges, vaults or panic rooms for

personal or corporate safety.   The BDS-1 blocks can also be used as a cavity layer filling between inner and outer wall construction for a more discrete permanent ballistic shield, and has excellent thermal and accoustic properties.

The BDS-1 is made with a unique polymer binder. The finished block has an elasticity which will decelerate and trap all small arms projectiles without flaking or chipping. Made from a from a non-biodegradable material, these self-healing blocks will far outlast any other ballistic defence structure on the market today so are ideal as a long term defence structures if requried.  The patented self-interlocking system requires no plastic links, clamps, adhesives or seals, and can be constructed as vertical or brick courses interlocking lengthwise and vertically for excellent strength and practically seamless fit.

The BDS-1 block is container, truck and skylift friendly making it an ideal choice for deployment to hostile zones where commandeered buildings may not offer sufficient

protection for modern high-velocity weapons.

The BDS-1 Ballistic Defence Block is manufactured to ISO:9000 compliance from 100% recycled vehicle tyres - as well as the standard 'tyre black' finish, the blocks can be produced in flat or mottled colours and disruptive patterns to suit operational requirements for military use or simply to be less obtrusive in civiliann use. Our design and manufacturing process is lean, allowing a fast response to any custom requirements for this and other ballistic protection needs.

Because our blocks are made from recycled vehicle tyres, the fulfillment of overseas government contracts may also be possible using Manufacture Under License arrangements.  This may provide the additional benefit of being able to qualify for and utilise set-aside environmental funding, for the reduction of local tyre mountains.
