Plate Shapes
Our Plates comes in a variety of shapes to meet any tactical need.

The plates are available in single and multi-curve geometries.

What happens when a plate is shot?

When a ballistic event happens, it creates a conoid of roughly 65 degrees, generating a microfracture structure which inherently powders/shards and some material ejects from the small hole created from the impactor. This event creates both static and dynamic deformations which are translated to the body as blunt force trauma instead of bullet penetration. This elastic or dynamic deformation is what is measured to meet the National Institute of Justice Standards for ballistic resistance and must not exceed 44 mm of deformation.
