Defexpo 2014: Tata selects Jankel BLASTech seats

Posted 6 February 2014 · Add Comment

Tata Motors Limited - India's largest vehicle manufacturer - has selected Jankel to supply its blast mitigating seats.

Blast mitigating seats offer the highest level of protection on the market. Jankel BLASTech seats, when put into armoured vehicles, quite simply help to save more lives due to their unique technology. In MRAP vehicles, despite all the armour and protective measures, occupants are still injured and killed in IED blasts from the shock and accelerations of the initial blast and the subsequent slam down of the vehicle.

Jankel blast mitigating seat technology absorbs the impact of both the initial blast as well as the secondary slam down of the vehicle, reducing the severity of injuries to the occupant and saving lives.

Dan Crosby, Business Development director at Jankel remarks “We are extremely pleased to be working alongside Tata. The relationship has allowed us to extend our technology and manufacturing to a new market and we are excited to continue to build our reach worldwide. Our aim is to protect those whose day job it is to protect us. Threat levels may change but what doesn’t change is the importance of protecting those in dangerous places so they return home safely. That’s fundamental to us and to our customers who purchase equipment on their behalf.”

Tata will be exhibiting their Wheeled Armoured Platform at Defexpo taking place 6-9 February in New Delhi with the Jankel BLASTech seats fully installed.
