Caliber Armor have gone above and beyond to bring you steel body armor of a HIGHER CALIBER.
This can be seen with Caliber Armor bend process, their fragmentation coating and finishing details. This was the material that they started from and had the most experience with. They’ve seen it, done it, improved it.
Steel Body Armor provides great protection that can stop multiple projectile hits. Caliber Armor have been working with different levels of abrasion resistant (AR) ballistic steel for years and have not found a better product than their AR550 Steel Body Armor Plates. This armor is rated at a level III+ as it can defeat special threats like M855 rounds.
All Caliber Armor steel plates come in one ergonomic curve option. Caliber Armor have worked with LE, and first responders to design a curve that you can be comfortable wearing. Caliber Armor provides this at no additional cost. What is unique about the way that they bend their steel is important too. Caliber Armor have designed a press that creates a multi curve bend in ONE step. Why is this important? When you do multiple bends to achieve a multi curve, it puts extra strain on the plate which can weaken it. Caliber Armor has replicated the same curves that you have seen in multi curve ceramic armor for years.
Caliber Armor aggressive Shooters Cut body armor plates shave off weight while still providing enough coverage to protect your vital organs. Use the CaliberX™ Soft Armor Backers for even more protection and comfort.
Caliber Armor standard plate comes coated to protect the plate from rust and the elements. One concern with Steel Armor is fragmentation containment. Some of that fragmentation is contained in the armor’s plate carrier, but there still is a risk of lethal shrapnel. Caliber Armor recommends their Caliber Anti-Spall add on. Caliber Armor has teamed up with friends at Bullet Liner® to formulate an anti-spall coating specifically for their armor application. This addition to your steel plate gives you peace of mind when wearing steel armor.
