Imperial Armour launches the safest vests on the market!
Louisa Garland-Els, Managing Director of Imperial Armour, has proudly announced the introduction of new standards for the manufacturing of body armour.
As witnessed by key clients during a recent shooting range test, bullets are stopped within the Kevlar of a body armour vest after 4 to 5 layers. These include 44 magnum, .357, and 9mm bullets. However, it must be noted that even when a bullet is stopped after 5 layers into the kevlar, if the trauma is excessive, it can still stop vitals organ from working. Therefore, Imperial Armour has recently made the ground-breaking decision to increase the number of layers at no extra cost.
All Imperial Armour vests are tested to National Institute of Justice (NIJ) standards at an International Independent Testing house, at a 5 meter range. According to NIJ standards, the maximum back face trauma allowed is 44mm. By implementing these new standards, Imperial Armour has reduced the trauma level to 35mm – 11mm better than the prescribed standards! This additional safety net might make all the difference in high risk situations.
As leaders in our industry, we are committed to offering our clients the best in combat and tactical safety. By setting these new standards, we believe our clients will have true peace of mind when wearing Imperial Armours’ products.
