HESCO P210 SERIES LVL. IIIA BALLISTIC INSERTS ARE THE TOP OF THE LINE WHEN IT COMES TO WEIGHT 1 LBS. AND ONLY 0.27 INCH THICKNESS!
NIJ Certification of hard armor requires submission of 10” x 12” test plates which must demonstrate the ability to defeat specific rounds tested to a valid NIJ shot pattern, after exposure to a stringent conditioning protocol to simulate aging and wear. Level IIIA requires six .357 sig (9 mm FMJ in the case of NIJ 0108.01) and six .44 mag per plate.
NIJ’s process provides for the inclusion of other size torso plates of identical construction to be included under the Certification without further NIJ testing.
HESCO holds itself to a higher standard by publishing the minimum number of shots that each size plate can be expected to defeat under similar NIJ testing methods, as well as listing many additional threats not addressed under the NIJ Certification process. The minimum number of shots are shown in the Threat Performance Matrix.
