ESP hardened expandable baton – 16″, 18″, 21″, 23″ and 26″

Our hardened expandable batons (ExB) are intended for professional use in extreme conditions. They serve for fast self-defence in different conflict situations.

The difference to the non-hardened version is the expandable tubes, which are made from a more superior material, which is hardened by heat treatment. Thanks to it, the batons are highly resistant to a flexion if the baton is exposed to a hard stroke. Surface finish is black nickel-zinc (with good resistance to abrasion), or chrome (silver surface).

They meet the requirements of the German standard for expandable batons. This product is suitable for the police, security agencies, and guards, against an assailant armed with a knife, for walking in the country alone or with a dog.

The expandable baton is opened by sharp flick and stays firmly fixed in this position. We have produced hardened batons in 5 lengths with 2 types of rubber handles:

  • anti-slip with indented – rough surface .... type "H"
  • ergonomic ... type "HE"

Holders delivered with the expandable baton

All hardened expandable batons are supplied with a high quality plastic holder, for which European patent was granted (EP 1832834):

  • batons of the lengths 16″ .... BH-02 holder
  • batons of the lengths 18″ and 21″ .... BH-34 swivelling holder
  • batons of the lengths 23″ and 26″ .... BH-35 swivelling holder

Sviwelling plastic holder BH-34 and BH-35Plastic holder BH-02

Professional plastic holder, which is included in the price of the baton, enables:

  • very quick drawing of the baton just with one hand, since thanks to automatic opening of the holder after unfastening of nylon strap there is almost no friction
  • holder with unfastened nylon strap enables carrying of expanded baton


It is possible to supply the plastic holder BH-02 and BH-03 to all lengths of expandable baton – upon the customer's wish.
