Get superior ballistic protection plates at the lightest weight.
Our hard armor solutions range from Level IIIA protection to Level IV stand-alone armor-piercing protection.
Lightest Weight, Highest Technology
Our hard armor plates provide the highest ballistic protection at the lowest possible weight—the result of our investment in the latest materials and manufacturing technologies. Designed to fit into vest pockets or plate carriers, our inserts won’t weigh the wearer down.
Attain the level of protection you need. We offer NIJ 0101.04 compliant body armor plates and NIJ 0101.04, NIJ 0101.06 and NIJ 0108.01 certified solutions. Refer to the Body Armor Specifications section below for more information.
Tried, Tested & True
Our NIJ-compliant ballistic testing range tests various threats—from a 9mm handgun to a 14.5mm heavy machine gun and 20mm FSP.
As part of this test range, we use a digital X-ray to inspect the hard armor plates before testing and after each impact. This allows us to see how the armor reacts to each successive impact and quickly refine the armor design as needed.
LTC also has a suite of testing apparatuses that allow environmental and mechanical testing of body armor and armor materials.
