Spartan Armor Systems Active Shooter Kit With Level III+ AR550  Spartan Armor Systems AR550 Body Armor with Hydra Plate Carrier. This active shooter kit set up is designed to allow a quick response time and comfortable performance fit with superior Level III+ Rifle Rated Protection. Carrier includes emergency drag handle, quick cinch adjustments for the front and hook and loop adjustments on the shoulders. The Spartan Armor Active Shooter Kit is perfect for rapid response situations.  Our AR550 body armor is NIJ level III rated but has undergone special threat testing to achieve a level III+ rating. NIJ Certification applies to AR550 Shooters and Swimmers Cut Single Curve Full Coat armor plates.  Why Are Your AR550 Single Curve Full Coat Plates Labeled as Level III?  Spartan AR550 Single Curve, Full Coat body armor plates are labeled as level III on the back of the plate as the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) does not currently have a level III+ rating. Level III+ indicates special threat testing and was created by the body armor industry to fill the void between NIJ 0101.06 level III and NIJ level IV, specifically to account for high velocity penetrator rounds such as M855 (aka green tips). While Spartan AR550 single curve full coat plates are certified as NIJ level III, rest assured they are made from AR550 ballistic steel and have been special threat tested to level III+. Quite simply, the NIJ requires that we label AR550 single curve full coat plates as level III even though they are capable of higher ballistic protection.   The Hydra Plate Carrier is a highly adaptable carrier ideal for quick deployment and emergency situations such as active shooter scenarios. Easily adjustable buckles ensure a snug and comfortable fit on the sides. Ample length shoulder straps allow the Hydra plate carrier to be easily adjusted to fit a wide variety of body types. Breathable mesh is used at chest, back and shoulder contact points to allow for maximum breathability. The Hydra plate carrier is a great choice for anyone looking for a lightweight and versatile body armor configuration.

SPARTAN ARMOR SYSTEMS® AR550 BODY ARMOR SET OF TWO   Product Overview Spartan Armor Systems® has literally taken Level III-rated body armor to the next level by adding a 10% increase in ballistic core hardness to their AR550 line of armor. Because of this enhancement, our AR550 level III+ body armor offers operators advanced rifle-rated threat protection and has been special threat validated in an independent NIJ credentialed laboratory. Manufactured and tested within the highest quality standards, utilizing laboratory-certified steel, our single curve, full coat AR550 plates have received NIJ Certification under NIJ 0101.06 level III specifications. For added peace of mind, every plate of armor sold by Spartan Armor Systems® is serialized allowing it to be easily tracked back to the original plate of steel it was cut from should there be any question as to its ballistic properties. Protective Value Added  We understand the NIJ rating system can be confusing. Simply put, our AR550 body armor is certified as NIJ (National Institute of Justice) level III rated but has undergone special threat testing to achieve a level III+ rating. AR550 Single Curve, Full Coat body armor plates are labeled as level III on the back of the plate as the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) does not currently have a level III+ rating. “Level III+” indicates that special threat testing was created within the body armor industry to fill the void between NIJ 0101.06 level III and NIJ level IV, specifically to account for high-velocity penetrator rounds such as M855 (aka green tips). While AR550 single curve full coat plates are certified as NIJ level III, rest assured they are made from AR550 ballistic grade steel and have been special threat tested to attain the level III+ qualification. Quite simply, the NIJ requires that we label Spartan Armor Systems® AR550 Single Curve Full Coat Plates as “Level III” even though they are capable of providing the operator with a higher degree of ballistic protection.    Battle Hardened Our AR550 armor hits the “sweet spot” in the Brinell Hardness (BHN) range. With a core hardness of approximately 545-560 BHN, we have found that the ballistically rated variant of AR550 that we use when manufacturing our AR550 armor is perfect for defeating higher velocity threats, while not exposing the armor plate to extreme stress due to forming. Our AR550 Level III+ armor has our GEN2 lower cut radius, it’s much harder than AR500, but not so hard that it risks incurring severe stress while undergoing the formation process.   Laser Cut to Protect Ballistic Integrity All steel core body armor is cut and shaped after the ballistic properties have been formulated within the steel. While other steel body armor manufacturers commonly use plasma torch cutting that applies excessive heat (25,000 ˚C / 45,000 ˚F) to a wide portion of the steel plate, Spartan Armor Systems® only utilizes laser cutting in order to protect the ballistic integrity of each steel core body armor plate we manufacture. Plasma cutting also requires grinding to clean up the edges after the fact, resulting in increased heat and possible fatigue. At Spartan Armor Systems®, we maintain the highest production integrity and quality standards every step of the way for our customers because we know what is at stake.    Additional Protection: Full Coat or Base Coat Options We strongly recommend choosing our full coat option when you buy steel core body armor. Our proprietary plate coating, Encapsaloc™, is a potentially life-saving feature that captures spalling as a result of ballistic impacts on the strike face of the steel core armor plate. Do not settle for steel armor that is merely coated with generic truck bed liner spray coatings that have not been tested for ballistic efficacy. The strike face of our Spartan Armor Systems® AR550 Body Armor plates proudly bears the mark of our Spartan logo.   IMPORTANT NOTE: The base coat option only provides protection against corrosion and offers little to no fragmentation/spall mitigation. Should you choose to select base coat plates, please consider adding our Spall Containment Sleeve (sold separately) as a means of fragmentation mitigation.   Blazing The Trail of Innovation Our AR550 Spartan Body Armor now offers operators the option of coming with the Advanced Triple Curve (ATC) feature. This is an industry FIRST! Spartan Armor Systems®™ is proud to be the LEADER in the industry when it comes to offering our customers triple-curved AR550 body armor. With higher velocity rifle threats commonly present throughout the United States, we’ve developed this AR550 armor to specifically defeat some common threats such as 5.56 x 45 XM193, 5.56 x 45 M855 /SS109, and 7.62 x 51 (.308 Winchester) at a rated velocity of 3,100 fps or less. Additionally, we’ve successfully defeated these threat profiles from Close Quarters Battle (CQB) distances…repeatedly! Configuration: This armor comes as a pair, meaning you will receive both front and back plates.   Shooters Cut Plate Weight (per plate):. 10”x12” AR550 Shooters Cut: Base Coat 8lbs 1oz. or Full Coat 8lbs 10oz.

We’re special rifle threat validated! Our AR550 body armor is NIJ level III rated but has undergone special threat testing to achieve a level III+ rating, click here to learn more. NIJ Certification applies to AR550 Shooters and Swimmers Cut Single Curve Full Coat armor plates. Note: AR550 side plates are NIJ compliant, are not NIJ certified.  Our AR550 armor hits the “sweet spot” in the Brinnell Hardness (BHN) range. With a core hardness of approximately 545-560 BHN, we have found our  ballistically rated variant of AR550 that we use is perfect for defeating higher velocity threats, while not exposing the armor plate to extreme stress due to forming. Our AR550 Level III+ armor has our GEN2 lower cut radius. With a 10% increase in core hardness, this ballistic grade steel is much harder than AR500, but not too hard to cause severe stress while forming. With higher velocity rifle threats commonly present throughout the United States, we’ve developed this AR550 armor to specifically defeat some common threats such as 5.56 x 45 XM193, 5.56 x 45 M855 /SS109 and 7.62 x 51 (.308 Winchester) at a rated velocity of 3,100 fps or less.
