NIJ stands for the National Institute of Justice. NIJ has a set standard of variables such as bullet velocity, distance to target, bullet weight, caliber, and many more to make sure everything is controlled so you can have confidence in the results. See Page 5 for test summary at link below. https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/nij/099859.pdf The NIJ Standards are used to develop protective gear for police departments all across the USA
There are dozens of different kinds of Kevlar type and weaves as well as other ballistic fabrics available. Kevlar has uses in fire protection, laminate filler such as in boats and car panels, and of course ballistic protection. I tested a 15 loose layer panel of K49 ( boat kevlar) and it did not stop my .40 cal pistol round. Where only 8 layers of K129 stitched together did stop the .40 cal
If you are not getting a product that has been through the rigorous testing standards of the NIJ, then you are not getting value. As I mentioned earlier, just because it is Kevlar, doesn't mean it stops bullets. The testing in the lab not only tests the fabric, but also the engineering, and quality of construction. I you are buying a protective product, you need to know the product works, and against what threats it is effective.
The Life Binder , will be modified to fit a variety of personal items. In the works are a backpack insert, purse insert, satchel insert and Briefcase false bottom.
We test the fabric and construction in a mock up Prototype that is 12"x 12" and send it to the lab. The Lab as pictured at the top left clamps the panel into a vise that holds the panel just on the edges. There is very little give and nothing behind the panel except a "witness paper" which if perforated by anything after a shot is considered a fail. The panel is then shot 5 times at the correct speed and caliber being tested against. Once we have a passing test, we then take the same layer count of Kevlar fabric, stitch pattern, and outer materials and make them into Life Binder. NIJ testing
Yes, of course! I understand Kids are Expensive. Purchase 3 or more and you get each Life Binder for 65.00$ instead of the list price of 79.95 as well as free USPS Priority shipping
While no product is 100% completely bullet proof, every product here is tested in a certified Laboratory according to the National Institute of Justice ( NIJ) standards to exceed it's rated protection level. Copyright © 2017 Everyday Armor - All Rights Reserved.
