Bullet Resistance

SHARPE Security offers the bullet resistant products which are categorized according to NIJ, National Institute of Justice, standards.NIJ-0101.04/06 is to establish the minimum performance and test requirements for body armors to protect the torso against gun shots. The scope of the standard is limited to bullet resistance. It does not address the resistance for attacks from knives or sharply pointed objects. NIJ-0115.00 is for stab resistance of personal body armor, such as knives and sharply pointed objects. NIJ-0108.01 is for all bullet resistant materials (armor) such as ballistic plate and ballistic shield. NIJ 0106.01-is for ballistic helmet.

In the past few years, street/random shooting or stabbing incidents happened in schools, subways, cinemas or other public venues. It puts people into great fear. In regard to this, SHARPE Security develops a brand new series of backpacks with added self-defense capability and functions. They look and work like normal backpacks but are equipped with soft bullet resistant panels, which are the same as those inserted in bullet resistant vests, as standard. More than that, you can also choose to add anti-stab (spike) plates or hard standalone ballistic plates to increase the protection scope. The more prepared you are, the safer you'll be.
