IMPAC-HT1 for Handgun Threat and Spike 1 Protection

IMPAC-HT1 for Handgun Threat and Spike 1 Protection


The PROTECH Tactical brand announced today the introduction of the IMPAC-HT1 plate to its line of IMPAC special threat plates. The IMPAC-HT1 provides protection to law enforcement officers from both handgun and limited spike threats.

With the performance standards of the best-selling IMPAC-HT special threat plate line in mind, the IMPAC-HT1 provides the same high-velocity handgun threat protection with the added benefit of Spike 1 protection. The IMPAC-HT1 was designed to meet the needs of teams that are seeking a lightweight option to face a limited amount of spike protection, but don’t require the robust protection offered by the IMPAC-MT (multi-threat) plate line which addresses a wider range of spike and edged bladed threats.

“Law enforcement officers can’t predict the threats they will face in the line of duty, but with the addition of the IMPAC-HT1 plate, the IMPAC line of special threat plates now offers the widest array of threat specific protection on the market,” said Dan McNeil, Category Director for Tactical Armor. “The IMPAC-HT1 is the best of both worlds when it comes to protection from handgun threats and limited spike threats.”

The IMPAC-HT1 has been independently tested* to defeat the following rounds:

  • Speer .375 Sig, 125 gr. FMJ FN: 3 impacts per plate at 1470 ± 30 fps
  • Speer .44 Mag, 240 gr. SJHP: 1 impact per plate at 1430 ± 30 fps
  • Winchester Ranger 9mm +P+, 127 gr SXT: 3 impacts per plate at 1250 ± 30 fps
  • Speer .357 Sig, 125 gr. GDHP: 3 impacts per plate at 1375 ± 30 fps
  • Norinco 7.62 X 25 Tokarev, 85 gr. FMJ: 3 impacts per plate at 1530 ± 30 fps
  • FN 7.62 X 28 mm, 28 gr. SS195LF, JHP (Belgium): 3 impacts per plate at 2075 ± 30 fps
  • FN 7.62 X 28 mm, 40 gr SS197 (Blue Tip): 3 impacts per plate at 1740 ± 30 fps

Spike/Edge Weapons (tested on separte plates)

  • Spike 1: 3 drops at E1: 17.7 ± 0.4 / E2: 26.6 ± 0.4 (strike/overstrike energy, ft. lbf)

"The IMPAC-HT1 has not been tested or certified in accordance with NIJ 2005 Interim Requirements or NIJ Standard-0101.06. The IMPAC-HT1 plate should always be used in conjunction with an NIJ certified flexible armor vest.

All IMPAC style-plates are offered in four different sizes including a 5” x 7” size for shorter torso lengths, a standard sized 5” x 8”, a 7” x 9” for expanded torso protection and a 10” x 12” shooter’s cut.

The PROTECH line of IMPAC special threat plates is now available in six styles:

  • IMPAC-HT for high velocity handgun threat protection 
  • IMPAC-HT1 for high velocity handgun threat and limited spike threat protection
  • IMPAC-CT/DT for duty threat and spike and edged blade threat protection 
  • IMPAC-MT for handgun, spike and edged blade threat protection 
  • IMPAC-RT for rifle threat protection
  • IMPAC-RT PLUS for enhanced rifle threat protection
