Type IV Armor Piercing Threat Plate (Model 2230) Product Image

PROTECH Tactical announced the availability of their new Type IV Armor Piercing Threat Plate, the Model 2230. This new plate has satisfied the hard armor plate requirements of the National Institute of Justice’s (NIJ) Voluntary Body Armor Compliance Testing Program under NIJ Standard-0101.06 (NIJ-06).

The Model 2230 is the latest addition to the PROTECH Tactical line of hard armor plates and has been successfully tested to defeat the .30 Caliber M2-AP (Armor Piercing) round. Manufactured using a ceramic-aramid composite and featuring exclusive UNEQUAL DEFCON blunt trauma reduction technology, the Model 2230 is a robust, multi-curve plate design with a military-style shooter’s cut to offer greater range of motion in the arm and upper chest area while shouldering a long arm weapon.

“The 2230 is, by far, the most advanced Type IV hard armor plate that we’ve ever developed.” said Dan McNeil, Category Director for PROTECH Tactical Armor. “During NIJ Compliance testing for V50 which requires 12 impacts of the .30 M2-AP, the independent lab didn’t get any penetrations even with velocities in excess of 600 ft/s above the top velocity of the Type IV Reference Velocity range for NIJ-06 Compliance Testing.”

This 10” x 12” high-performing plate weighs approximately 7.5 lbs., is approximately 1.15” thick and is now available for purchase.

Ballistic Underwear

Product From U.S. ARMOR CORP.

U.S. Armor revealed their new Ballistic Underwear at SHOT Show 2014, a product designed to offer ballistic protection for the femoral artery and groin. The product protects the law officer or military personnel from a fatal gunshot to the femoral artery; an area previously unprotected by other body armor items worn in the field. Although an officer’s quality of life would go down dramatically after a gunshot wound to the groin region, an injury to the femoral region is a life-threatening situation. If an EMT or Doctor is not immediately present to treat a severe injury to the femoral artery, the life expectancy of the injured officer is extremely low. A high percentage of officers injured in this way would bleed to death before showing up at a nearby hospital. With the new Ballistic Underwear product, officers can now comfortably be protected in this vital area from fatal threats that they face every day.
