Strategic Armour Solutions offers SAPI (Small Arms Protective Insert) armour plates made of a combination of UHMWPE (Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight Polyethylene) and SIC (Silicon Carbide). These armour plates are designed to provide high-level protection against various small arms threats.
The SAPI armour plates are available in two different sizes: 250mm x 300mm and 280mm x 360mm, providing options to suit different body armour configurations. The dimensions are carefully chosen to offer optimal coverage and protection to the wearer.
These armour plates have undergone rigorous testing and certification to ensure their effectiveness. They are tested according to the standards set by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) and SANS 1658:2007. The NIJ is a widely recognized authority in the field of armour testing, while SANS 1658:2007 is a South African National Standard that provides requirements for the ballistic resistance of body armour.
By meeting these testing and certification standards, the SAPI armour plates from Strategic Armour Solutions demonstrate their ability to withstand ballistic threats and offer reliable protection to the wearer.
The combination of UHMWPE and SIC materials in the construction of these armour plates provides a balance between lightweight design and high-level protection. UHMWPE is known for its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, making it an ideal choice for body armor. SIC, on the other hand, is a hard ceramic material that enhances the plate's ability to defeat certain types of projectiles.
Overall, Strategic Armour Solutions' SAPI armor plates made of UHMWPE and SIC offer a reliable and tested solution for personal protection against small arms threats, meeting industry standards and providing peace of mind to the wearer.
Our understanding and use of body armour has placed us in a strong position to know what is required and how best to meet those needs. In this range we provide plates at NIJ safety standards threat levels III and IV.
