ShieldTec™ Ballistic Protection

 

For the manufacture of our ballistic panels we use high-density polyethylene panels, or better known as PEUD or UHMWPE or Aramid UD fabrics.

All of our garments are manufactured to comply with National Institute of Justice Standard NIJ 0101.06. We currently have models that are NIJ 0101.06 certified which include one NIJ 0101.06 level II model and two NIJ 0101.06 level IIIA models. Level IIIA offers the highest amount of protection available in soft body armor. It will defend you against most weapons encountered in the United States; it is tested specifically for .357 Sig FMJ FN (Flat Nose) bullets traveling at a velocity of ~1470 ft/s and .44 Magnum SJHP (Semi Jacketed Hollow Point) rounds at a velocity of 1430 ft/s. Most professionals (like police officers) usually wear level IIIA on a day-to-day basis. Also our clothing will protect you from vast majority of hand-delivered knife and/or spike threats.

  • NIJ-IIIA lab results can be found HERE
