The Armadillo is renowned for its pliability and versatility in releasing a high volume of high velocity blast gases, to minimize the height that the mat rises into the air, after the shot detonates. The over/under weave of the cut and punched tires has been further modified to incorporate our affectionately named, “smiley frown” pattern and this is what makes these mats so versatile, just like an Armadillo.
