SPARTAN (Lightweight) NIJ IIIA

Spartan Shields utilise intelligent material concepts which enable us to build this new range 20% lighter with wall thickness reduced by 38%, when compared to traditional shield constructions. The shields are finished with a carbon cover which provides further stability and gives a unique look to this 'top of the range' product.
The quality and ballistic performance remains unchanged. To date, we have developed this technology with our West-Yorks, Kent, ERT and RRS shields, which are listed below with equivalent weights and sizes. We are also able to produce this shield to other sizes/designs, please contact the Sales Team for further information.
