Watch the Fortis Ballistic Vest Demonstration.
When your job involves you being put in harm's way, there is an increasing need to protect yourself from being injured in a stabbing, shooting or other violent attack. Weapons are often concealed and any sudden attack is often at close quarters and rarely misses the target.
This dual purpose Ballistic/Stab/Spike Vest from Fortis protects the vital inner body parts from bullets, stabs, thrusts, cuts and blows or attacks with sharp, edged or spiked weapons, including hypodermic syringes. It has been tested and certified to the UK's strict Home Office Police & Scientific Development Branch Standards HG1, KR1 and SP1 and is CE marked.
Ballistic resistant body armour is tested by firing specific bullets at specific velocities at samples mounted on plasticine blocks. The armour is then examined for complete perforations and the plasticine examined for depth of indentations. The armour must have no complete perforations and the indentations must be no deeper than a specified depth. The HG1 standard requires protection against standard ammunition fired from short-barrelled handguns. The tests are conducted using 9mm calibre handguns and 0.357 Magnum handguns. The qualify for this standard, the maximum indentation depth of each shot must be no more than 25mm. This vest passes all tests conducted to achieve the HG1 standard.
Now some facts about knife attacks - almost two-thirds of all attacks involve an edged weapon. A knife never runs out of ammunition, never jams, never misfires, rarely misses its target, has superior concealment capabilities and cuts bone, tendon, muscles, arteries, veins with one thrust. Attacks with edged weapons usually occur when you least expect them. Many people seldom saw the edged weapon that penetrated their body and they failed to recognize the danger cues. Knife attacks can be exceptionally accurate and penetrate deeper than some bullets, creating remarkable permanent cavities and ripping through numerous organs in one stroke. In reality, within their respective ranges, knives are superior to firearms as far as lethality is concerned.
The KR1 and SP1 standards are tested at a performance level of 24 joules of energy. To meet these standards, the armour should offer maximum periods of wear in standard risk patrolling environments and also be suitable for covert use.
The material in this vest is a patented composite of ultra-high-tensile fibres and thermoplastic resin that has outstanding toughness and durability. These thin flexible sheets are arranged in multiple layers and contained in an outer cover with adjustable shoulder and waist fastenings.
Ideal for lone workers such as security officers, paramedics, street or traffic wardens, door supervisors, bailiffs, probation or environment officers - in fact, anyone who should have the physical protection of certified body armour during the course of their duties.
If you're an employer of such workers, you need to demonstrate that you take your duty of care to employees seriously by providing certified body armour. The adverse consequences of prosecution under the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act are an unlimited fine and publicity orders.

Simply return the panels along with the original police report stating that your Fortis body armour protected you and how the damage occured. Customers are responsible for all shipping costs.

Please note that wearing body armour does not diminish the need to take great care when confronted with a situation which may threaten your own or a colleague's personal safety. This body armour is supplied in order to provide added protection to the wearer. Neither the manufacturer nor the retailer of this product is liable and can not be held responsible for any injury caused as a result of misuse of the product.

WOW!
I was unsure about buying one of these, but after watching the DVD, i know I will buy one. I work as a security guard, and this would be great as protection. The DVD explained everything and answered all the questions I wanted to ask. I would rather pay the money, then to loose my life!
Pros: Great Value , Lightweight
Cons: none
Would recommend: Yes
