Today’s ballistic shields are lighter than previous generations, which makes all the difference for ease of use and staying focused on your task and being well protected against threats.
Ballistic shields are an important part of law enforcement operations, as well as for industrial and personal protection – from personal protection to patrolling, to SWAT operations, to school or facility security, all places and teams should have a proportional number of ballistic shields in their stock to stay protected.
What exactly is a ballistic shield?
A ballistic (or scientifically called a bullet-resistant shield since nothing is 100% bulletproof), is a body shield that is used by a user to protect himself or herself from bullets or other projectiles. The shield can be used by hand, or it can be mounted or placed against a wall, window, car, or almost anywhere else you can imagine.
The ballistic shields we provide have been tested up to level III-A (ambient, in an NIJ approved laboratory) and level III (ambient). This ballistic resistance is one of the highest levels available for shields. Being shot with ammo like this will kill you if you do not use a strong ballistic shield. Ballistic shields are never 100% bulletproof, but this will help keep you protected to the highest degree possible.
What are ballistic shields made of?
The ballistic shields that we provide are manufactured with tightly compressed polyethene fibers, and silicone carbine (ceramic) ballistic material, which is pressed together to produce strong and safe ballistic protection inside our shields. The ballistic material we use in the ballistic shields we provide are sourced and manufactured from some of the highest quality providers in the world in order to provide safe and reliable protection for the users of our shields. Safety is the most important aspect of bulletproof shields, and we make sure our shields are reliable for those who need to use them when times call for it.
Who uses ballistic shields?
These days with gun violence at an all-time high across America, our ballistic shields are used by a variety of different people and professions. Police & law enforcement make up most of our users for ballistic shields, but these days we also provide our shields to many schools, universities, school district police, apartment complexes, hospitals, shopping centers, and even to individual families and people who just want to stay safe at home. That’s right – as an American it’s your right to own a ballistic shield to keep you safe during a life-threatening emergency.
