Window Box Hide:
As an operational company, conducting hundreds of hours in a covert static observation role every month within urban environments, we decided it was time to re-address the old time consuming conventional way of constructing urban hides.
From our operational experience we knew the procedure needed to be completed quicker and with a much simpler method, it had to be lightweight so to be carried onto plot discreetly without drawing attention to the observer and deployable at rapid speeds so not to miss activity of interest.
Above all, the system must be ‘fit for purpose’.
What is our window box hide:
Constructed from lightweight military grade fabric, the window box is a rapid deployable three-dimensional box, shaped like a pyramid only rotated through 90 degrees.
Positioned against any window on the internal side, creating an instant visual barrier from the outside looking in, offering concealment to the tactical observer from the very beginning.
With the use of the supplied tri-pod and specially developed mounting ring, the hide is ready to use within minutes.
OPTION ONE: Window Box ‘Light’
Constructed of lightweight mesh fabric offering thermal protection to the operator, while creating a one-way visual barrier. To anyone looking into the dwelling vision is totally denied, while to operators looking out, maintaining total visual dominance.
The great advantage to the Window Box Light, is that it allows multiple optics to be used at any one time, from different angles covering an extensive field of view, while the primary optic/camera is focused on the area of interested.
This option can be deployed in both day and night time operations, but back-lighting within the hide is not advised, if this is requirement then the ‘black-out’ version is needed.
OPTION TWO: Window Box ‘Black-out’
Constructed from a full-bodied fabric, which when deployed correctly will create a light proof barrier between the inside and the out, this enabling the use of controlled low-admitting illuminates within the hide.
The ‘Blackout’ only allows a primary optic to be used, this giving a very narrow field of view but does offer the observer more concealment and freedom within the hide. We would normally deploy the ‘black-out’ option on more sustained static operations, opposed to the short term ‘light’.
Due to these items being in service we cannot show images on the open website as this would compromise the system, if you wish to find out more about our ‘Window Box Hide’ system, please contact us via details found on the website.
