Sabre Pepper Spray
Company Adds Defense to Civilian and Law Enforcement Alike
The family-owned and -operated Security Equipment Corporation produces the nation’s strongest brand of pepper spray outside of Fulton. Thirty-five years ago, Larry Nance, a former defense spray salesman, started the company to improve civilian defense spray products. He tested out different formulas for more than a year before he found one that worked. SABRE Red Pepper Spray is six times hotter than habanero chili pepper and has the maximum level of capsaicinoids, the chemical compounds that give peppers their sting, that the government allows.
The company also produces a line of self-defense sprays, a combination of tear gas and pepper spray, stun guns and batons, and a bear spray called Frontiersman, a 33 percent stronger dose of the SABRE Red pepper spray. In the ’90s, Larry and the second generation of Nances expanded the Security Equipment Corporation’s product line to include aerosol projection canisters and a law enforcement-specific brand. Today, the New York Police Department, the U.S. Department of Defense, and other law enforcement agencies around the country carry SABRE products.
