Posted 7 December 2016 · Add Comment

Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS Group said: "Launching our new NIJ Std 0101.06 Level IIIA bullet resistant vest today is a truly special event in itself, but knowing our body armour also protect from full contact shots means we have once again significantly improved the personal safety of those who serve and protect our countries and citizens."

"Too many law enforcement officers are being shot by their own firearms from extremely close range. Understanding this particular risk was crucial during the development phase of our new high performance body armour."

PPSS Group's latest body armour also offer consistent protection from Tokarev Ball 7.62 x 25mm and Makarov 9 x 18mm, handgun rounds primarily used in the Russian Federation and Eastern European countries.

This advanced design has been successfully tested against a general issue TASER device, which was recently conducted in a realistic operational setting - with a no effect on the wearer. The wearer was not incapacitated by the Taser discharge nor suffered any effects of the device. 

The hybrid ballistic package has been created using a highly advanced new ultra-resilient European ballistic material, an integrated solution that combines high ballistic performance with a high level of comfort, improved flexibility and substantially reduced Back Face Deformation (BFD).

Tony Welsh, COO of PPSS Group said: "We really are devoted to our continuous research and development. Our ambitious goal was to develop one of the best and operationally most sensible bullet resistant vests, and it is now clear that we have successfully reached our objective."
