AMOUFLAGE

Knox has been making camouflage nets since WW1. Their technology has evolved from those early camouflage nets required to fool only the human eye to systems which deceive the most sophisticated equipment.

Knox has been making camouflage nets since WW1. Their technology has evolved from those early camouflage nets required to fool only the human eye to systems which deceive the most sophisticated equipment.

The art of camouflage lies in giving the target the same brightness values, shades and infra-red reflective values as its environment. It is as important to deceive the human eye as surveillance monitors.

Knox camouflage nets are manufactured to your specification for deployment in specific terrains: woodland, desert or arctic.

Camouflage nets can be supplied in any size and are easily joined together to cover large areas. Lightweight synthetic materials are utilised in manufacture, ensuring ease of handling and transport.

The use of thermal sheets in conjunction with nets will extend the protection into the far infra-red region of the spectrum. The shape of the equipment being camouflaged can be distorted using aluminium or glass reinforced plastic poles to break up straight lines. These can be supplied in various sizes.

NOT ONLY FOR MILITARY USE
Flame retarded camouflage nets can be custom-made for nightclub use and theatrical backdrops. Ask us for details.

The business has taken on the services of AG Salmon and Co Ltd, Naval Architects, to design a new workboat. The 20m x 7.5m vessel will be equipped with a large deck crane and winches to enable it to perform a wide range of tasks.
