Blunt Trauma Shield (BTS)

When a bullet is defeated by body armour a high level of energy is transmitted through the vest. The effect of this energy on the human body is known as blunt trauma. In many cases, blunt trauma can cause serious injury or even prove fatal.

For many years, Armourshield have included a patented system of trauma reduction in all their body armour products. The Armourshield BTS (Blunt Trauma Shield) protects the wearer from the effects of blunt tramua by absorbing energy and distributing forces over a much larger area. The BTS allows Armourshield body armour to meet the requirements of national ballistic test standards whilst retaining a high degree of flexibility.

The patent protection applied to the BTS means no other company may exploit the unique advantages offered by Armourshield body armour.

Ceramic / Composite Armour Upgrade Plates

Ballistic Plates

Whilst soft, flexible body armour can defeat most handgun and sub-machine gun threats, the stopping of high velocity rifle rounds demands a hard plate. The traditional steel plates have been superceded by combinations of ceramics and composite materials. Armourshield have been producing high specification ceramic / composite ballistic plates for many years.

The range of Armourshields plates is large enough to cater for most operational requirements. A wide variety of sizes are available with all plates offering fully contoured shaping for a comfortable fit. Most Armourshield plates have seen active military service throughtout the world.

Each design of plate comprises a monolithic ceramic strike face backed by either a glass fibre or aramid composite. All Armourshield plates defeat high velocity Ball, Armour Piercing and Armour Piercing Incendiary bullets at 5 metre range.
