Warrior Trail Consulting introduced advanced ballistic protection solutions to law enforcement, military bases, security forces and first responders through a partnership with ShotStop Ballistics LLC.
“In the ballistic protection market, the three most important considerations are weight, performance and cost,” said Larry Bronstein, executive director for Warrior Trail. “By teaming up with ShotStop, Warrior Trail now distributes lifesaving ballistic technology that is lighter, stronger and lower cost than what’s currently available.”
Warrior Trail worked closely with ShotStop to leverage their advanced ballistics technology and help bring their life-saving technology to market. ShotStop’s patented Duritium® material uses advanced technology ultra high molecular weight polyethylene manufacturing methods to achieve an ultra-light and more durable product than any others on the market. At 2.7 psf, the 100 percent polyethylene body armor plates have one of the lowest areal densities available.
Certified by National Institute of Justice as compliant with NIJ Standard 0101.06 for Level III+, the stand-alone, multi-curved and multi-hit plates provide ballistic protection against high-velocity rifle threats. A polyuria coating protects the durable plates from water, body fluids and fuels and moisture, making them ideal for use in maritime environments. They also float.
Warrior Trail’s new active shooter response vest is specifically designed to accommodate the ballistic plates. The vest weighs less than 11 pounds when fully equipped with front, back and side plates.
Warrior Trail also has developed a complete and customizable active shooter response kit that includes both the vest and ballistic plates. “Regardless of location or duties, today’s law enforcement and first responders must be able to immediately deal with active shooter incidents,” said Bronstein. “The response kit, ideal for a squad car or fire truck, means that powerful, life-saving ballistic protection is readily available.”
Warrior Trail is ShotStop’s first authorized ballistic products distributor. All ShotStop and Warrior Trail ballistic products are manufactured in the United States and have a limited 5-year warranty. Initial sales are restricted to the U.S.
