Defenshield Handheld Riot Shield

Defenshield - Handheld Riot Shield


The Handheld Riot Shield (NBS) is designed for use in corrections and law enforcement applications. Particularly effective for crowd and riot control, the NBS is lightweight, shatter resistant and capable of withstanding impacts from bricks, bottles, splash and rocks. NBS units also stand up to all types of swinging strikes.

At the National Institute of Justice Annual Mock Prison Riot™, the NBS absorbed blows from batons, chairs, 2x4s, and crowbars with no damage to the shield or user. The NBS offers many new and patented features not found on any other shield on the market. It is flexible — capable of being folded in half repeatedly with no creasing damage, and its interlocking edges allow personnel to form a unified, solid barrier with multiple shields. The NBS comes standard with ambidextrous handles.

Handheld Riot Shield Product Information

What are the dimensions of an MDFP?
The standard MDFP is 36" wide by 76" high, however, we can build units to meet your specifications. For example, if you require movement of the unit through doorways that are 32" wide, we can build units for you that are 30" wide.

Can I change the mobility option of my MDFP after delivery?
Caster kits can be added to any unit originally designed with lag plates, however, the ATV-style tire option should be chosen at the time of order since it requires a machined modification of the unit. Lag plates can be added to any unit at any time.

Can we get a sample MDFP for evaluation before placing an order?
Yes, qualified buyers can arrange for a short-term evaluation unit. The requesting agency is responsible for the shipping costs, which are credited upon placement of an order. Your Account Manager will work with you to ensure you receive the most appropriate unit for your evaluation.

Does the Camography™ option change the ballistic properties of the unit and can you match any image request?
The Camography layer does not affect the level of protection of the device. We have a range of image samples you can choose from, or you may provide us with an image and we will match it for you.
