C.P.E. 5"x 9" NIJ IIIA side panel
NIJ IIIA grade ballistic panel meant for Plate Carriers. Made for demanding professional use! One-off lot.
The panel is less than 5 mm thick (0.2"), yet offers excellent multiple hits protection and hits close to the edge of the panel. Each protective layer is separately laminated for improved hygiene and moisture protection. The panel offers the best possible protection with minimal trauma.
Physical measurements 135 x 235 x 7 mm (5 x 9 x 0,27"). From our selection these fit the Sioen Tacticum Plate Carrier's sides.
Protection level NIJ IIIA
The IIIA level according to NIJ-standard is pretty much the lowest used in military and LE applications these days, but also the highest level that can be achieved with soft materials. NIJ IIIA is commonly used in bullet-resistant vests worn underneath clothing as well as flak vests.
NIJ IIIA stops the following threats (list not exhaustive):
- .22LR (rimfire pistols and rifles)
- .44 Magnum SJHP
- 9x19mm FMJ (pistols and submachine guns)
- Fragmentation and ricochets.
