Constructed from lab certified AR500 Omega Armor, (1/4” thickness) these plates provide the operator with Level III protection IAW NIJ0101.06 standards.
With all of our AR500 Spartan Armor Systems™ products, we only use ballistic LAB CERTIFIED AR500! All purchases of our Spartan Armor products have current lab certificates available on request. Remember, not all body armor is created equal!
Instead of bending our formed plates in 2 different locations as we used to, we have machined custom tooling to give these plates a nice curvature to best conform to the side of your torso. Spartan Armor Systems™ is proud to be the FIRST in the industry to commercially offer triple-curved AR500 body armor. Spartan Armor Systems’ ATC™ body armor allows the operator to shoulder their weapon with the most freedom and limited discomfort. The ATC™ armor better “hugs” the operator’s body, resulting in a significant increase in comfort. Our CNC equipment capabilities have allowed us to create dies which form our body armor without any “crease” bends. Crease bends, “work hardens” the plate and causes a significant amount of stress to the portion of the plate under load. We HIGHLY suggest when doing research to ask if they crease bend their body armor. This process results in increased potential for plate fatigue and failure, which is why Spartan Armor Systems™ has gone the extra mile to create this die process.
These plates come as a pair.
Full Coat or Base Coat Options:
Both sides of these plates are coated, however, the back side only has a “courtesy coat” to protect against wear and rust. The front of the plate is lined with 1/4-3/8 of our proprietary coating, Encapsaloc ™. The result is a plate approximately 1/2-5/8” total thickness. By purchasing, you will receive (2) Formed AR500 Spartan Armor 10?x12” chest plates. Due to popular demand, we have added a “base coat” only option for our AR500 armor products. The base coat option has an extremely thin layer of our fragmentation mitigation coating to aesthetically enhance the plates, and to provide corrosion resistance. This coating has minimal, if any, fragmentation mitigation capabilities.
