TUCSON, AZ -- (Marketwire) -- 03/19/13 -- G Squared Consulting, a leader in energy protection items including it's Thorshield body armor, gloves, pants, overalls and more, is offering unparalleled multi-threat protection for law enforcement in the face of growing civilian stun gun and Taser ownership. The multi-threat protection includes Cut/Slash, Fire/Flame, Puncture for blunt force objects and Abrasion/Tear resistance.
"With the stronger stun guns and the civilian-oriented Tasers now on the market, such as the C2, X26C and the new Taser X3 Home Defender, whose 'Semi-Automatic' mode allows users to strike and incapacitate up to three people without reloading, law enforcement needs to be protected from this emerging threat," stated Greg Williams, Partner, G Squared Consulting. For additional information please visit www.thorshield.com
For example, in addition to the ability to engage multiple targets, the Taser X3 HD has a high capacity battery, displays a warning arc while loaded and utilizes a Dual Laser System, which is touted to improve a shooter's accuracy. All of which makes it a more formidable weapon than past or other Tasers.
Reports of police being Tased fall into a number of categories and include:
•Police being Tased with their own weapon by a suspect, such as this example last month in Eugene, OR: www.registerguard.com/web/news/cityregion/29486388-41/police-wright-officer-officers-natt.html.csp
•A police officer Tasing themselves by accident, such as this example last August in Lake Havasu City, AZ: http://www.havasunews.com/news/officer-injured-in-taser-accident/article_0e14afb4-1eae-5fa8-ae10-0b8f741c8ca6.html, and
• One police officer Tasing another officer by accident, such as this case in Perth, Australia in 2010: www.perthnow.com.au/news/western-australia/taser-accident-lands-policeman-in-hospital/story-e6frg13u-1225843195294
G Squared Consulting exclusively offers its Thorshield protective clothing for law enforcement, offering them safety from someone wielding a stun gun or Taser. The Thorshield lining is a highly conductive specialized layer of fabric, which prevents the flow of electricity from energy weapons such as Tasers, cattle prods, stun guns and similar devices. Thorshield protective clothing ensures that the electrical current conducts through the fabric versus the body, protecting the wearer. Thorshield products are only sold to law enforcement and military personnel.
"G Squared Consulting is excited about providing our outstanding line of cutting edge multi-threat energy protection items, including our Thorshield apparel, to law enforcement," stated Williams. "With more and more stuns guns and Tasers in the hands of the civilian population, as well as the ever present risk of an officer having their Taser used against them, we know that we are offering valuable products."
Thorshield Energy Weapon Protection Fabric is the most effective protection against non-lethal energy weapons on the market today. The fabric is integrated into body armor, uniforms, gloves and additional items.
New for 2013 is the Generation IV Protector and Shield glove line.
