ShotStop Armor Plates - ISO Certification

ShotStop Armor Plates Materials:

All SHOTSTOP materials are constructed with the revolutionary Duritium® technology.

Given the highly competitive price point of ShotStop’s engineered ballistics solutions, combined with the lighter weight and more dynamic material and end products, they are poised to enter various current markets including personal protection, law enforcement, and government/military application.

One of the complaints we hear most is the lack of COMFORT with the existing body armor options. The revolutionary Duritium® Technology enables significantly lighter weight for our ballistics protection material, which results in a much more comfortable fit for body armor, in particular.

In addition to these traditional ballistics protection avenues, they anticipate seeing a dramatic rise in other non-dominate ballistics industry areas such as ballistics protection apparel, fashion clothing, handbags/backpacks, and other applications which they are already in the process of developing.

15-Year Warranty on ShotStop Armor Plates – 100% Polyethylene and Green Tip Body

  • Decreases total lifetime cost of body armor
  • Reduces time invested in the procurement process

Duritium III+PA, Duritium III+PS, and Duritium GT2 body armor plates come with a 15-year warranty – three times the industry standard body armor warranty of five years.

This fifteen-year warranty gives individuals and agencies and opportunity to afford a lightweight and better performing piece of kit without added cost. In fact, when you dollar-cost-average the plates over the lifespan ShotStop Armor Plates are significantly less expensive per year of use. On average, if a department purchases ShotStop plates for 20 officers at $300/plate the upfront cost is $12,000*. Divide that cost over the 15-year lifespan the department’s cost is $40/year per Officer.
