In response to the military’s need for versatile and fast response to changing threats, AMTANK Armor adapted itsarmor_amtank patented Steel Composite Technology (SC) for use in structural panels for semi-mobile protective structures. The panels can be adapted for specific protection requirements and offer superior blast and ballistic defense. The structures provide quick set-up, modular versatility and minimal logistics. These re-useable structures can be configured as operation and command centers, barracks, storage or perimeter protection, and can be equipped with fully self-contained power, HVAC and water, as needed. They are designed to combat blast and ballistic as well as chemical, fire and environmental threats.

To be responsive in a competitive security environment, these adaptive structures will be vital. “AMTANK Armor was developed to offer both lightweight composite protection for the vehicle market and Steel Composite protection for semi-mobile and non-mobile structures. Our SC product offers occupants a significant level of blast and ballistic protection. This product is manufactured in Cleveland, Ohio, and can be easily attached to the interior or exterior of a structure utilizing our patented ballistic bolts,” states Ken Ripich, Executive Vice President.
