NIJ Standards & Compliancy
SafeGuard Clothing® is committed to keeping its testing methods in line with NIJ standards to ensure that all products offered are of the highest standard of protection.
The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is recognised as being the world leader in the testing of ballistic armour, and exists as the US Department of Justice’s research, development and evaluation branch. Part of the NIJ’s role is to further the standards of protection offered by body armour, while also helping to disseminate knowledge and raise awareness through relevant and useful information.
SafeGuard Clothing® ensures that the entirety of its products meet the standards outlined by the NIJ1 by mirroring their safety tests and developing body armour that exceeds the required standards of protection.
