You can double your protection and increase coverage against ammunition with our range of high-quality armor plates. By adding a plate to your bullet proof vest, you can have body armor that resists ammunition from both handguns and higher caliber firearms. From standalones to plates need to be inserted into lvl IIIA vest, there are plates to meet most level of threats. Select a design in your size and preferred material to enhance your safety and security.
Types of Armor Plates
When it comes to your life’s protection, only the best will do. This is why we stock plates made from industry-approved materials to guarantee your safety. Our plates are also designed to be worn comfortably with a variety of vests.
Ceramic armor is fast replacing its metal predecessors because of its superior hardness and strength. Once used for military vehicle protection, the material has been adapted to plates as well. This brittle material is fused with composites to create bulletproof plates that can deform a bullet on contact. When the tip of the bullet is deformed, its impact is lessened. Highly effective and shock sensitive, this is the ideal design for anyone from civilians to specialized task forces.
Benefits of Ceramic Plates:
Ceramic plates are unique in that they have the ability to disfigure a projectile fired at high speeds. When a bullet hits your armor plate, the ceramic shatters and gives other materials the opportunity to absorb the shock. This is the working mechanism behind this design and has proven to be one of the most effective for years.
One of the biggest benefits of ceramic plates is their weight. Their light weight design makes them easier to carry, which helps in maintaining stamina and mobility. This makes them suitable for both large and small wearers.
High Level of Protection:
When worn together with level IIIA bulletproof vests, ceramic plates can greatly increase ballistic resistance. Plates can be inserted inside vests of varying sizes. Should vests be unavailable, wearers also have the option of using standalone plates. Ceramic plates can offer up to level NIJ IV protection depending on the kind of armor you pair it with.
Ceramic plates are more comfortable than most because of their curvature. Double curve plates are a popular choice because of their great fit. Curvature is also useful because it provides protection from multiple projectiles.
Benefits of polyethylene Plates:
Polyethylene plates are well-known for their incredible strength and low weight. They are capable of absorbing more kinetic energy than many plates on the markets, therefore providing more resistance. Concealable and comfortable, they are a lighter and stronger alternative to steel plates.
Some ballistic experts believe that Polyethylene plates can offer 15 times more resilience than steel. Polyethylene fibers boast complex properties that make the plate design one of the toughest in the world.
Kinetic Energy Absorption:
The more energy a plate can absorb, the higher the protection. Polyethylene fibers are designed to absorb and swiftly disperse force from incoming projectiles. This results in less injury and fewer fatalities.
In comparison to steel and ceramic plates, Polyethylene armor is much lighter and allows easier mobility. It can be worn and carried for much longer, and with greater ease. This makes it a smart option for those on duty. Because of its minimal load on the body, it is apt for wearers of all builds.
Because of their weight advantage, Polyethylene plates can easily be worn underneath or over clothing. Fibers are extremely flexible, which improve the overall fit. They can be inserted into vest pockets effortlessly for additional coverage.
The base material for Polyethylene plates is polyethylene, which can withstand chemicals and natural elements. Fibers provide a shield against UV light, water and small organisms to last longer. They can also be worn in high temperatures without losing any of their ballistic integrity.
Standard of Quality
All plates have been tested and approved by the National Institute of Justice to make sure they meet high standards of quality. They have been assessed and shown to provide level III, level III+ and level IV protection requirements when used with relevant armor.
