Ballistic protection is the term closely associated with personal safety products. It is all about ensuring the safety of personnel, particularly their bodies and eyes against projectiles of different sizes shapes and impact velocities. Ballistic protection is ideally required for soldiers, policemen, and general security staff. Apart from this, we also manufacture ballistic body armours which are available in a wide range of tactical options.

There are two types of armor plates: ICW (integrated shield) and STA (independent shield). Be sure to check the NIJ standards before choosing the armor plate you need.

ICW plates (along with a shield) must be used with body armor to stop bullets. It works well with IIIA bulletproof vests, which are basically designed with a front pocket big enough to hold an ICW plate. When the shield is used as a single or non-interchangeable system, ICW National Institute of Justice certified components. plate you need.

Stand Alone Armor (STA) does what the name suggests; No other form of security needs to stop or stop the threat level; Solid armor plate is sufficient. Often used in tactical operations, these tables are heavier than others. Because vests tend to be bulkier or heavier when used with separate panels during tactical operations, they must be powered to stop bullets.
Under federal law, most states allow anyone to wear body armor anywhere. However, some states do not allow wearing body armor to school unless you have a job that requires it.
Shield plates can be shipped to forty-nine US states. Sellers looking to buy these armored plates in Connecticut simply do so with an in-person transaction. Shield plates can be sold to anyone and there are no background identification requirements. Armor plates are available for sale at gun shops, galleries, websites, phones, and catalogs.
Depending on the level of permit granted by the state in question, you may not carry, send, ship, or carry armor plate in or out of the state.
