|Home Office KR1 + SP1 Protection Level |
The Fortis Armour – Home Office Certified Aramid Fibre Overt Stab Vest is certified under the Home Office’s HOSDB 2003 standard for stab resistant body armour to a KR1 +SP1 level. While nothing is 100% stab-proof, it does offer a high level of protection against slash and spike attacks which protects the user against most common sharp offensive tools such as knives, screwdrivers, glass and more. Unlike the US’ NIJ standard, the Home Office Standard puts a greater emphasis on back-face trauma which is the kinetic force and its’ effect on internal organs rather than just whether the object penetrates the armour.
|Aramid Fibre, Nylon, Steel Fibre Construction |
The Fortis Armour – Home Office Certified Aramid Fibre Overt Stab Vest panels are constructed with multiple layers of Aramid Fibre (more commonly known as Kevlar), Nylon and Steel Cord tightly bound and sealed in a tough Nylon binding. The panels are carried by a comfortable Cordura, Overt cover.
|Flexible Soft Armour |
This lightweight body armour does not use plates or metal sheets. This means that it is far more flexible than commonly available hard-armours. By using flexible panels, this Armour does not restrict motion or greatly reduce mobility. While not the lightest body armour when compared to carbon fibre models, the Fortis Armour Overt Stab Vest offers a much higher level of blunt force trauma protection and maneuverability.
|Adjustable Shoulders |
The Fortis Armour – Home Office Certified Aramid Fibre Overt Stab Vest has hook and loop(Velcro)-secured adjustable shoulders and sides. This means that the armour can be made to fit as tightly or loosely as the wearer requires.
|Internal Cooling Mesh |
The Fortis Armour – Home Office Certified Aramid Fibre Overt Stab Vest has cooling mesh lining on the inside which helps keep the wearer cool in warm weather..
|Made in the United Kingdom |
The Fortis Armour – Home Office Certified Aramid Fibre Overt Stab Vest is made by British body armour manufacturer, Fortis, and is produced in and shipped from the United Kingdom.
