Ballistics for Armored Bulletproof Vehicles

Ballistics

security vehicles armored vehicles armored trucks bulletproof trucks ballisticsFor the high end of threat levels, we utilize a composite armor plate. This material is manufactured from start to finish, meeting MIL-A-46100D and MIL-A-46177B Armor Plate as per the rigorous U.S. Military's Armor Specifications. It is tested at Aberdeen Proving Grounds to meet the military standards. Once the product conforms to the MIL standards, it must pass additional ballistic testing to meet the Underwriters Laboratory and National Institute of Justice standards. These standards are met through independent tests at certified laboratories.

Kevlar, (a registered product of DuPont) and / or Spectra, (a registered product of AlliedSignal) is utilized when total overall weight is a manufacturing concern or requirement. These lightweight armor materials can be laminated to varying thicknesses to deflect the high end of threat levels as well.
