Protective Products’ track record of research, development and production of new body armor systems to meet the ever-escalating threat continuum is unmatched. This is true both in the soft ballistic materials development and certification, as well as in development of the carrier systems supporting both the soft ballistics and hard ballistic plates.
Our commitment to the highest quality standards are found in every facet of our product evolution process. Close collaboration with leading industry experts have brought Protective Products to the role of a recognized authority in ballistic protection. These efforts have resulted in the saving of thousands of lives over several generations of our ballistic products.
Our products are a synergistic collaboration of material science, human engineering and technological precision. Our material science experts continuously execute research initiatives resulting in new fabrics and combinations that advance the science of ballistic protection. Combining science with our human engineering efforts, we are able to design and produce systems that not only offer the best possible protection, but support the secondary needs of the client as well. This, combined with the precision available to us through our world-class technology and testing center, allows us to produce the ultimate in ballistic protection systems.
Our comprehensive approach to product development continues to set the industry benchmark for ballistic armor technology. Inside our world-class technology and testing center, a state-of-the-art ballistic laboratory allows us to continuously develop maximum-performance products which consistently exceed National Institute of Justice (NIJ), U.S. Military, Government (DEA and FBI) and International testing requirements. Incorporated into the technology center are two 75 feet ballistic shooting test ranges. The ranges are equipped to meet all of the requirements of an NIJ Certified ballistic testing facility and are capable of testing a full spectrum of projectiles from 22 to 50 caliber projectiles or bullets, as well as 2, 4, 6, 16 and 64 grain fragment simulating projectiles (FSP). This allows us to intrinsically design armor that will defeat the complex and ever changing threats that the military faces every day.
The center also includes a dedicated R&D Garment Design Department that designs cutting-edge concealable and tactical carriers with the highest level of ergonomic fit and finish. This combination of ballistic expertise and garment design provides a seamless culmination of the most advanced body armor systems that are unparalleled in ballistic protection and comfort.
