“The collaboration with Safariland is a perfect fit,” Scott Wyatt, President of Busch PROtective, added, “Our team will be able to provide unique innovative helmet solutions to those who need them most, by utilizing Safariland’s industry-leading law enforcement distribution network. Our helmet systems, [which range from premier Ballistic protection, SAR/Training, and Riot Control], offer world-class performance in lightweight designs that are as comfortable as they are robust. We’re excited to join forces with Safariland and to do our part to further Safariland’s mission: ‘Together, we save lives’.”
Busch PROtective’s ballistic helmets meet the widely referenced National Institute of Justice (NIJ Standard 0106.01) Level IIIA test standard. In addition, the Busch PROtective AMP-1TP helmet system is designed for the demanding needs of Federal and Domestic law enforcement agencies and public safety missions and meets the new DEA-FBI Ballistic Helmet Protocol V1.0-2019 as well as the European VPAM-3 standard. Introduced to US law enforcement in 2019, the DEA-FBI Protocol has become the defining real-world ballistic performance evaluation that tests against projectile penetration specifically limiting energy transfer during ballistic events to help reduce possible TBI, ballistic resistance in both hot and cold temperature extremes, edge protection, hardware testing & reduced blunt trauma.
Through the new agreement with Busch PROtective, Safariland will handle domestic US sales and distribution of Busch PROtective helmets & accessories. For more information on Busch, please visit www.safariland.com/pages/busch-protective.
