MasterCraft Defense

Since 1970, MasterCraft Safety® has been a pioneering manufacturer of innovative safety seating and restraint systems custom tailored to endure the most extreme environmental conditions and demanding off-road terrain. Headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, MasterCraft Defense has been supplying tactical and combat vehicles such as LSAC, MRAP, HIMARS, SOTV, NSCV and LTAS with crucial energy attenuating seating and restraints for over a decade. We are committed to safety and endlessly pursue enhanced designs and engineering to ensure our products continually surpass the needs of our service men and women in the most treacherous of conditions.

MasterCraft Defense’s diversity of product uses have been an invaluable asset in producing combat-tested and battle-proven energy attenuating seating and restraints systems. In addition to four decades of real-world testing and experience in the most extreme off-road racing conditions, independent tests by nationally recognized laboratories indicate our suspension seating directly resulted in an 84% reduction of energy in a 50 “G” load impact, or a force equal to that of a NATO STANAG 4569 2A blast. The 84% reduction in energy resulted in a Dynamic Response Index well within the survivability range and has further solidified MasterCraft’s commitment to the well-being of our armed forces.

MasterCraft Defense performs 100% screening, statistical sample inspections, and tests all products to ensure the highest-quality of construction and workmanship. In addition to testing existing products, MasterCraft Defense generously invests in research and development resulting in continuously improved and proven products available commercially, off the shelf. As a recognized manufacturer of the SFI Foundation, (an organization established to issue and administer safety standards for specialty automotive and racing equipment), MasterCraft restraints also meet and exceed SFI specifications and testing criteria for performance and quality.
