Stab Resistant Vests
Firearms are not the only type of lethal weapon that can cause fatalities; knives, blunt objects and spikes can be lethal as well. When protecting our correctional officers, police officers and riot teams we must make sure they are protected from weapons capable of puncturing the body including, knives, blunt objects and needles.
These stab proof vests come in three different NIJ standard protection levels. The different levels of stab resistant protection are based upon the amount of force delivered in a strike.
- Spike 1 vests protect against low impact energy threats of 24 joules
- Spike 2 vests protect against medium impact energy threats of 33 joules
- Spike 3 vests protect against high impact energy threats of 43 joules
A stab vest is not a “bulletproof vest.” It is designed to be worn under/over items of clothing and offers limited protection against bullets. This rigid vest is created to resist knife attacks to the chest, back and sides by edged weapons and sharp-pointed weapons.
