Safariland’s PROTECH 2120-5 plate is one of three certified PROTECH Tactical Level (Type) III hard armor plates to successfully complete the National Institute of Justice’s updated testing protocol for Level III rifle threat compliance under NIJ-06. In addition, the 2120-5 plate has undergone a series of special threat testing to include multiple impacts against 7.62mm 180gr PSP, 7.62 x 54R 150 gr. LPS, 5.56 mm 62 gr. M855 and 7.62 x 39 mm 123 gr. MSC ballistic rounds.
Also, the model 2120-5 plate was tested as a stand-alone plate, which means its performance is not dependent on the addition of “in conjunction with” body armor. This allows greater flexibility in using PROETCH’s plates with any ballistic or non-ballistic vest configuration without compromising the safety of the officer, first responder or operator.
Additionally, the model 2120-5 is manufactured in a contoured, multi-curve design with a military-style shooter’s cut configuration, which affords greater range of motion in the arm and upper chest area while shouldering a long arm weapon. The 2120-5 is manufactured using an ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) and Alumina blend, which makes the rifle plate high performing and lightweight at less than 6 pounds.
