The Guartel Inflatable Mine Shoes are designed to provide a means to safely traverse a mined area where there is a threat from pressure activated land mines.
The shoes work by spreading the weight of the wearer through a metallic frame and transferring the weight through 5 user inflated air-cushions located the canvas carrier in each shoe. The system reduces the ground bearing pressure below the thresholds typically needed to initiate an Anti-Personnel mine.
The Inflatable Mine Shoes have been proven in many theatres of operation by both military and by UN Demining organisations worldwide.
The shoes can also be utilised as a floatation aid for wet obstacle crossing.
