Learn More About Blackinton Badge Security Solutions At Shot Show

Blackinton Badge ShieldBlackinton has two new Badge Security Solutions. Visit us at Shot Show in Booth 20560 and learn about our two newest badge security offerings UVShift™ and ZorSecure.

UVShift is a low cost anti-counterfeit solution. Blackinton® discretely locates on the back of your badge an embedded UV light activated code. By flashing a simple handheld black light on this color-shifting area you reveal the code verifying the authenticity of the badge. The code is agency defined: It may be an officer ID#, a sequential code, an acronym, etc.

ZorSecure is a robust easy to implement authentication solution. A tag is placed on the back of your badge. This tag can be scanned with your smartphone, similar to a QR code. Once scanned you are brought to an authentication screen verifying authenticity of the badge. This screen can be easily customized by a department.

Outlast® Heat Management Technology Carrier

US Armor

Our Outlast® Heat Management Technology Carrier provides a cooling effect when the officer is warm and a warming effect when the officer is cold. Using a revolutionary space technology (initially designed for use in astronaut space suits), Outlast® fabric uses Thermocules® and actively regulates the officer’s skin temperature in real time.

The Copper CuTec Carrier incorporates the skin-rejuvenating element of Copper and weaves this element into the actual fibers of the body side of the armor carrier. When this copper is present it provides unparalleled odor relief, an elimination of bacteria from perspiration and skin cells, and an unmatched relief from serious heat rashes such as Prickly Heat.

These carriers are now available for immediate purchase as a carrier option for any U.S. Armor concealable vest model.
