HIGH VELOCITY SHIELDS
for protection against rifle and armour piercing rounds
More recently a NIJ Level III shield, HVS type, has been developed for Special Forces use. This has evolved into a number of sizes, each suiting a specific scenario. These shields have a side clamp handles to avoid any degradation on the face of the ballistic panel caused by the drilling of handle attachment holes.
HVS/400/775 400mm x 775mm
HVS/400/1550 400mm x 1550mm
HVS/500/600 500mm x 600mm
HVS/500/1000 500mm x 1000mm
The handle comprises a bar or three point “T” shaped unit so positioned to allow the shield to rest against the forearm. A large foam pad covers the area where the forearm rests.
