soft armour technology
Protective Products offer a complete range of flexible and lightweight soft armor panel (SAP) solutions which can be inserted into our selection of carrier designs to provide the individual user with protection against a range of threats. We provide body armour protection panels to defeat ballistic only threats, stab only threats or combined threats and utilise a variety of innovative technical fabrics to achieve the best balance between safety, weight, cost and wearability.
- All Fabric Solutions: these armour systems are constructed using high strength Aramid or HPPE materials such as Kevlar or Dyneema and incorporate no metallic components. Our multi-threat armor systems which provide dual purpose ballistic and stab protection utilise laminated materials which also enhance the blunt trauma performance of the solution but still offer high levels of flexibility and comfort.
- Chainmail Solutions: these armour systems are generally constructed using high strength Aramid but with a flexible metal component which provides the stab-protection element. The benefits are good levels of flexibility but chainmail solutions can often be slightly thicker than All Fabric Systems plus trauma protection is lower.
