Award Winning Protection

Winner of the CTSS Award for Innovation in Personal Protection, the MAX1 is the first plate in the world weighing only 1.7 kilos to enhance body armour protection to defeat nine (9) shots of the AK47, M80 NATO ball round, SS109 and other high powered rifle ammunition at 15 meters when used with VestGuard advanced soft armour solutions.

 

Nine Shot tried and tested

This high performance plate combines advanced ceramic technology with cutting edge construction to achieve improved performance without impacting weight. The MAX-1 uses a network of smaller ceramic plates combined with our unique backing process.

 

Made in the UK

Manufactured by VestGuard in the UK, tested and certified to the NIJ level III (3) standards by independent test laboratories. Testing carried out with the SS109 round to nine shots.

Each plate is 250mm x 300mm x 18mm with shooter cut corners and is recommended that each vest be equipped with two plates, one for the front and one of the rear, that fit inside pockets on the outer carrier of VestGuard overt body armour.
