The Bulletproof Front Plate protective plate can be used in almost all designated vests and carrying systems.
The Bulletproof Front Plate hard-core insert complies with the US NIJ Level IV Stand Alone protection class. The plate does not require any additional soft ballistics and can protect the body from large-caliber projectiles directly in receiving pockets.
This protection class offers ballistic protection against bullet-resistant protection up to .308 Winchester VMS (solid shell) / HK (hard core) up to a bullet speed of 830 m / s and a bullet weight of up to 9.75 g.
These plates have been tested to meet NIJ Level IV by a test lab in Germany.
The plate can be inserted into either one of our compliant armour carrier vests and used standalone with other 3rd party designs.
“Level IV ballistic plates are the highest rated hard armor plates under NIJ 101.06 standards. These hard armor plates were designed to take 1 hit from an armor-piercing rifle. These rifle plates are tested to defeat 7.62MM armor piercing (AP) bullets (also known was .30-06 or 30 ot 6) traveling at a velocity of 2880 ft/s. Please note that since level IV ballistic plates are only tested to stop 1 shot compared to 6 shots from a level III hard armor plate, a level IV hard armor plate is not always better than a level III hard armor plate. Besides NIJ certification there are other standards of bullet resistance such as the U.S. Military’s SAPI (Small Arms Protective Insert) standards, which features plates designed to military specifications. This standard first came into play with their Interceptor body armor (IBA), and later with their Improved Outer Tactical Vest (IOTV) and the Modular Tactical Vest (MTV).”
