military grade material
Rumber® is a truly remarkable product. This is a military grade material. And we mean that literally. We are currently selling to the U.S. Army for it’s grenade training ranges. Previously they had a plywood wall along the trench to keep shrapnel from flying back at the soldiers. Each day they had to rebuild 1000′ of wall. They’ve been throwing grenades at a Rumber wall for over a year now without failure. This is TOUGH STUFF.
Basically it is available in two forms:
