Shock Absorption

Unlike traditional solutions, our ballistic plates are designed to absorb the kinetic kick delivered from a bullet by engulphing the projectile – simultaneously eliminating ricochet. This means you can keep fighting even after taking multiple hits.

Advanced Armor Materials

Your armor could save your life, so know it like the back of your hand. Utilizing a unique UHMWPE molding technique and super-strong Silicone Carbide ceramic this ballistic plate backbone is on the bleeding edge of body armor. This heavy-duty material combination ensures maximum durability and protection.

Stay Intact

When struck by a bullet the ceramic elements shatters into potentially dangerous fragments, absorbing kinetic energy in the process. To combat this our plates incorporate a special polyurethane coating, ensuring all-ceramic fragments remail safely contained and helping absorb additional shock.

What is the advantage of SA4BSP™ over other UARM™ plates?

By measuring your chest circumference.

With standard sizes (6″, 8″), it is made to cover your lethal zones on the torso (heart, lungs, kidneys) without extending further due to weight. To make the correct choice, you can use the Size Chart in the Tech Specs or the Determine Size at the settings screen on the top of the page.

How many hits in a row can a single armor plate withstand?

Armor plates are tested under the NIJ standard to withstand up to 6 consecutive hits. While that number can be greater, we can’t guarantee that result.

Is it possible to use an armor plate that has been hit by a bullet?

It is not recommended.
You may continue operations with a damaged armor plate due to composite materials that, when damaged, only a tight zone of the armor fails. Undamaged zones still offer ballistic protection. However, you will need to replace the armor plate after the mission as further use is prohibited.

What is the shelf life of armor plates?

Officially, 5 years.
The date is calculated from the manufacturing label on the back of the plate. While good maintenance and handling can preserve the plate ballistic capabilities for longer, we will only guarantee five years from manufacturing.

Do armor plates lose their protective properties after expiration?

Not instantly.
Due to chemical processes and oxidation occurring inside the composite material, the anti-ballistic capabilities of the armor plate will slowly deteriorate over time. After five years, we no longer guarantees the same level of protection and you should renew your plates as soon as possible.

Are the same plates used for the front and the back?

The UARM™ SA4S™ hard plates are ergonomically designed to fit equally good on the front and on the back.
