Reliable Edge Blade Resistance
Each of our stab proof panels use the most advanced materials, and offer dependable protection to bladed weapons, up to stab level 2. Careful consideration should be given to the level of overt stab proof vest chosen. Many believe that choosing a higher level vest will provide them with more protection. Though this may be the case in certain circumstances, it does not always hold true. The higher the level, the heavier and more restricting the vest. What this means for someone who will need to be quick on their feet is that the perpetrator may be quicker and thus, more of a threat. It is, therefore, essential that the situations that one may face is carefully examined and thought through. If there is little chance that more deadly weapons will be present when on the job, then it may be best to opt for a lower level.
Certified to NIJ Stab Resistance Standards
All our stab vests are manufactured and certified to the National Institute of Justice levels. Some of our vests also offer resistance to spike threats.
The fact that a higher level vest may restrict flexibility does not mean that it is ineffective. One should always opt for a vest that will provide them with the best protection. If there is the chance that more intense situations which may involve spike threats may arise, then a higher level vest will likely be the best option. It goes without saying, that a threat assessment is of dire importance when choosing a stab vest. At SafeGuard CLOTHING™ we're focused on providing our customers with the best quality and the highest level of protection. Whether someone's need is for a higher level or lower level overt stab proof vest, it is a guarantee that with us, only the best quality will be provided.
Overtly Worn Carriers
Overt vests feature durable and hard wearing covers. The panels inside the vests are the same across all of our vests. Generally, overt vests should be worn on top of clothing, and are made from strong durable products such as Cordura®. This helps minimize abrasion, cuts and general wear and tear, providing much more value. Alternatively covert stab vests, which can be found elsewhere on our site, usually have a white cover that is lighter and more breathable. Choosing your cover will depend entirely on how the user will be wearing the stab proof vest.
Choosing The Right Stab Proof Vest
Choosing the correct protection level is vital, and the most important part of buying a stab vest along with the sizing. More protection doesn't mean a 'better' vest. As protection levels increase so does the weight of the stab vest, and flexibility and comfort will also decrease. On the other hand if you choose a stab vest with a protection level that is below that of the threats you expect to face, the dangers are obvious. A threat assessment is vital before purchasing a stab proof vest.
DuPont™ (who make Kevlar®) claim that Kevlar® in soft body armor has a lifespan that is "practically unlimited." They state that "Ballistic decay without use is unlikely assuming it hasn't been mistreated during storage."
All our stab proof vests have been professional refurbished by an armor expert. This involves stripping the stab vest down to the Kevlar®, and checking for any defects, and then recovering and sealing the vest. Unless otherwise stated our stab vests have only just run out of a standard 5 year warranty, and then been refurbished. Due to the fact we use only Kevlar®, and our vests come from government agencies, once refurbished the stab vest will perform as new. It is not uncommon for a Kevlar® stab proof vest to even have an original warranty of 10 or 15 years, this is actually what is normally offered to most armies and police forces.
How does a stab proof vest differ from a bullet proof vest?
Firstly most of our stab proof vests also offer ballistic protection. The difference between a ballistic only vest and a multi-threat vest (ballistic and stab), is usually a few extra layers of treated Kevlar®. There are a few popular methods of treating a vest to add stab protection. The two main ways are to treat Kevlar® directly with a high strength plastic or glue (similar to laminating paper, but with industrial high strength products). The second most popular way is to attach chain mail to the Kevlar® stopping edge weapons from penetrating. Both ways are equally effective methods for creating a stab proof vest, and provide similar results.
