Signature reduction technology
Dust skirts are a modular, retrofittable system, based on a new tough rubber composite material. The addition of dust skirts will aid in the reduction of abrasive dust related engine problems, which is a major issue in hot,
dry theatres of operation. Permali’s dust skirts offer both radar and visual signature reductions.
Permali’s dust skirts are designed to provide the optimum balance between stiffness and flexibility from a synthetic fire-retardant rubber composite designed for Armoured Fighting Vehicles (AFVs). The system ensures the
operational risks caused by sand and dust are mitigated; Permali’s dust skirts can also be applied to wheeled AFVs.
Fitting Permali’s dust guards decreases the volume of sand and dust which is thrown into the air and potentially drawn into the engine through the air inlet. Permali’s dust skirt and mud guard system is provided with easy application ‘bolt-on’ brackets that will fit the majority of AFVs and these brackets are available in either metallic or composite material.
