BALLISTIC-RATED ARAMID FIBRES
Tenacious protective synthetic fibre
Our hard-wearing soft armour panels are made from military-grade aramid fibres to protect you in threatening environments. These strong fibres offer a higher level of protection than ever before thanks to their tight weave, which not only absorbs the kinetic energy of projectiles but also stops them from being to pass through the fibres.
