TenCate Targa-light™ shields are light in weight, enabling end-users to retain they maneuverability. This results in greater user endurance during operations under extreme conditions. The shields are also resistant to shocks and impact. TenCate Targa-light™ shields also features a high multi-hit capability, ensuring an outstanding degree of safety even if the shield is hit by multiple projectiles.

Inherent features

The TenCate Targa-light™ shields are the result of years of experience and research into the use of shields in tactical situations. TenCate Targa-light™ shields offers the perfect blend of protection and mobility.

TenCate Targa-light™ shields are designed to provide the optimal protection surface to users. To achieve this, the shields have been designed in accordancewith human anatomy. The design and carrying features increases the ability to maneuver in confined spaces and provides the user with an excellent capability to respond by allowing the user to lean while carrying the shield and even carrying the shield in one hand only.

TenCate Targa-light™ shields are constructed from high-performance ceramics with a TenCate Rosist finish. Due to the choice of ceramics, a significantly decrease in weight has been reached while still ensuring the ballistic capabilities. the monolithic ceramics ensures a homogeneous weight distribution throughout the shield.

Flame and liquid protection

Waterproof: can be kept under water and keep its properties

Liquid and flame resistant: offers a good protection against chemicals and flames

Efficient shock absorption

Secures performance: Drastic drop tests show no effect on ballistic performance

Prevents damages: the foam used enables to protect the edges against scratches or mechanical aggression

Adjustable handle


Adapt the handle to user needs: the key for the performance of the shield is its ability to remain within the comfort zone of the user

Multiple holding positions: the engineered handle enables to hold the shield in different ways, depending on the situation and need of action thus maximizing user efficiency

Homogenous weight distribution

Equally balanced: the use of homogenous materials enables it to have a uniform weight distribution

Stability: a uniform weight distribution eases the portability of the shield and prevents the user from counterbalancing uneven loads

Auxiliary equipment

The TenCate Targa-light™ shield can be equipped with a range of different options to increase the effectiveness in tactical situations.


Removable periscope: Lightweight, disposable and can be easily changed

Camera: Day, night, infra-red

Leg protection

Extra protection to legs and knees


Extra buoyancy for marine applications


Possibility to carry the shield: enables shield to be carried as a bag pack

Protective coatings

The edges are made of resin, which make the shields robust and shock resistant. The shields can also be coated with TenCate Rosist™ in a range of different finishes and fabrics. TenCate Rosist™ is a multi-resistant protective coating that provides TenCate Targa-light™ shields with additional capabilities.

It can withstand the effects of wear and tear, dirt, cleaning, exposure, detergents and decontaminating agents. These features result in a highly durable coating product with low wear and tear, thus ensuring operating costs that comply with customer requirements regarding value for money.

TenCate Rosist™ can be sprayed to provide different surface finishes, ranging from granular to smooth, depending on the specific needs of each customer.

International standards

TenCate Targa-light™ is certified in accordance with international standards as well as specific customer requirements. It provides protection level III and level IV in accordance with the NIJ standard, among others.
