Spall Liner

Spall liner is a common name for a soft material, often aramid or glass fiber, that is mounted in the crew compartment of a vehicle. The spall liner serves to prevent fragments (spall), generated during an impact, from being acclerated towards the occupants of the vehicle.

 

Spall liner can either be used as an added safety in case the armor system is overmatched or be factored in as an integral part of the protection system, where the excellent energy absorbing properties of the fiber is exploited. 

 

Depending on the complexity of the vehicle, two options are available for implementing spall liner: hard, pressed panels or flexible blankets.
