Ballistic side plate – NIJ level 4 (IV) – Ceramic – SA | U-Line
This is our ballistic side plate in NIJ level 4, which is used in the sides of your tactical body armor vest. The ballistic plate comes in square cut, in the sizes 15×15 and 20×15 cm with a single curvature so they have a good comfort when worn.
The ballistic side plate is made in our Monolithic SIC, which means that there is one large piece of ceramic at the front of the ballistic plate, which is our lightest ceramic solution for level 4.
The advantage of using Monolithic SIC is that the ballistic side plate is very light weight, but it is also resistant to extreme temperatures; both heat and cold, where the performance of this plate is better than normal ceramic plates.
At the same time, the ballistic side plate stops up to 7.62×63 AP (30-06 springfield) and shots from AK47, SS109/M855, M80 and similar threats. This plate is stand alone, and doesn’t require soft armor behind.
The ballistic plate is coated with a small layer of foam, which protects the ceramic from impacts of daily use. Furthermore the ballistic side plate has a 100% water-repellent Cordura cover which is heat sealed to the plate. This cover protects the plate against water, oil and similar liquids.
