Silverback 4020 Elite
The Silverback® 4020 Elite bomb suit is Morgan’s highest protection, elite performance bomb disposal suit. It delivers unrivalled flexibility with protection against all aspects of blast, including flame, fragments, pressure wave, and tertiary effects.
The Silverback 4020 Elite bomb suit also provides full CBRN garment compatible protection when used with the Silverback® CBRN Visor.
The Silverback 4020® Elite incorporates 360 degrees of protection with no ballistic windows consisting of a composite, ergonomically balanced helmet system (independently powered), an armoured jacket with built in spine protection, ventilation and quick release systems. An articulated blast plate contoured to work in conjunction with the helmet to reduce head injury and armoured trousers with integrated quick release system.
In addition to ensuring the highest levels of survivability, the Silverback® 4020 Elite is designed for enhanced manoeuvrability, providing the EOD operator with the flexibility they require for operating in a restrictive environment. The business conducts its own manoeuvrability tests, testing flexibility to crouch, climb and crawl.
The suit’s breastplate features an innovative three-piece telescopic construction to deliver outstanding flexibility whilst minimising the transmission of shockwave energy to the user’s torso.
Optimal situational awareness
The Silverback® 4020 Elite’s advanced helmet system with powerful de-misting technology, along with a low profile jacket collar delivers unrestricted vision in challenging environments without compromising safety.
The Silverback® 4020 Elite features a cooling integrated helmet. There are also two cooling systems integrated into the jacket, forcing cool air around the operator’s body. The cooling system utilises a flame ingress brake mechanism for improved survivability.
Quick release system
This suit can be removed unaided by the user in less than 20 seconds, providing fast emergency removal without compromising on protection.
Full CBRN protection
When used in-conjunction with the specialist Silverback CBRN Visor, the Silverback 4020 Elite is fully compatible with leading CBRN undergarments, respirators and facemasks, delivering full CBRN protection.
Built for survivability
The Silverback® 4020 Elite has been extensively tested to deliver protection against all aspects of blast, including flame, fragments, pressure wave, and tertiary effects.
In the above video we show how the Silverback® 4020 Elite achieved a position on the Bowen Curve showing a greater than 99% survivability probability (in a controlled test environment) when exposed to four different blast tests:
• NIJ 0117.00 0.567kg C4 at 0.6m (kneeling)
• 1kg C4 at 1.0m (standing)
• 2kg C4 at 2.0m (standing)
• 10kg C4 @ 3M (standing)
Reduced maintenance and training burden
The Silverback® 4020 Elite bomb suit is initiative to use, reducing the training burden associated with bomb suits. Morgan holds a range of spare parts in stock for easily available sourcing. Furthermore, the Silverback® 4020 Elite works alongside existing in service equipment and is not burdened by the failure of integrated technology such as built-in cameras.
Used by elite forces
Our EOD suits are trusted by the UK MOD and are designed for use in disposal strategies based on the gathering of forensic intelligence, requiring maximum protection, flexibility and cooling to reduce fatigue during enduring missions.
Further enhancement with accessories
Further enhancements can be added to the Silverback® 4020 Elite including helmet mounted torches and cameras as well as protective clothing such as overboots and gloves.
