Expandable batons 26″, 23″, 21″, 18″ and 16″ in HARDENED version (H or HE):
The difference to the non-hardened version is the expandable tubes, which are made from a more superior material, which is hardened by heat treatment. Two types of handles are available – anti-slip handle (H) with indented surface (this design expressively decreases any possibility of the baton being yanked from the hand and gives the user a comfortable certitude) or ergonomic handle (HE) with pleasant smooth surface. The batons are highly resistant to a flexion if the baton is exposed to a hard stroke. They meet the requirements of the German standard for expandable batons and are intended for professional use by police and other authorities. Surface finish is black nickel-zinc (with good resistance to abrasion), or white chrome.
All hardened expandable batons are supplied with SWIVELLING plastic holder BH-34 or BH-35, for which European patent was granted (EP 1832834).
Expandable batons 21″ and 16″ in standard NON-HARDENED version (N):
They have a top quality tenacious rubber grip with an original anti-slip surface. This surface expressively decreases any possibility of the baton being yanked from the hand. A firm grasp of the baton gives the user a comfortable certitude. The non-hardened baton is recommended for personal self-defence and it is not designed for professional use. The batons are made in black nickel-zinc surface finish (with good resistance to abrasion) or in white nickel finish.
