If you are in law enforcement, the military, private security, or a civilian knowing you’re well-protected is crucial in tough situations.
This article explains the safety standards and testing for ballistic helmets at BulletProofHelmetsUSA.com and what ballistic protection levels mean. The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) sets standards for body armor, ballistic-resistant materials, and products.
Today’s bulletproof helmets are lighter than previous generations, which makes all the difference for ease of use and staying focused on your task. The National Institute of Justice sets industry benchmarks for ballistic protective materials and body armor, but how these rules apply to tactical helmets can be confusing to some people.
The NIJ administers a program to test commercially available armor for compliance with the standards to determine whether the products will perform as expected. In addition to being tested for NIJ compliance, body armor models must meet workmanship and labeling requirements. During compliance testing the manufacturers must register with the program, submit body armor application documents, send armor model samples to an NIJ-approved laboratory, agree to follow up inspection and testing and declare period of ballistic warranty.
At BulletProofHelmetsUSA.com our ballistic helmets are tested to NIJ level III-A (ambient) standards in an NIJ-approved laboratory, which means they protect against specific handgun threats and resist up to NIJ 0101.06 level III-A (ambient) ballistic threats.
In simpler terms: Our helmets are tested to protect against common handgun rounds (such as 9mm, .40, .357 and .45) including shots up to .44mag rounds; in accordance to NIJ III-A (ambient) specified conditions. Currently, most illegal shooting violence across America occurs from handguns, therefore our helmets are trusted by so many people around the country to keep them safe.
Also, our helmets at BulletProofHelmetsUSA.com go through STANAG 2920 (V50) Ballistic Testing by accredited laboratories, which is an additional ballistic testing standard that is used in the United States and tends to be used more for military applications, such as for shrapnel and ammunition fragmentation. Given the importance we place on making sure our helmets keep users safe, you should only purchase body armor from providers that make sure their equipment is tested and safe.
