We have a patent pending for the GC Shield and GC Shield Wall – a lightweight, flexible shield that provides a significant degree of protection against gun and/or knife attacks – that also fits in a school rucksack.

An important innovation is that GC Shields can also be linked together to form a Shield Wall to protect groups of people – for example, in classrooms.

We intend to launch the GC Shield & Shield Wall in the second half of 2018, and our preliminary market soundings indicate the potential for strong demand, particularly in US schools.

We will also launch our fourth funding round shortly – and we are returning to Crowdcube, where we did our first funding round in 2016.

Please note that existing GC shareholders have received a more detailed version of this update.
