American Blast System’s Level III+ Green Tip Ballistic Shield measures 30″h x 20″w and weighs 45 lbs. It’s made of advanced composite bullet resistant materials that meet NIJ Level III+ standards, manufactured to protect against 7.62 x 51mm, 7.62 x 39mm, 5.56 x 45mm, M855 “green tipped” rounds and lesser threats. The Level III+ shield also includes a bulletproof viewport. Ballistic shields, also known as breacher shields, are most effectively deployed by law enforcement and security teams trained in proactively addressing active attacker threats, but can also be integrated into action plans for schools, businesses, and organizations without advanced training to provide a near full coverage option for those egressing to locations of safety.
The backside of the shield includes a mounted handle for carrying and bracing it during deployment. A protective covering of Cordura covers the surface of the shield. Due to the custom nature of the shield products, fabrication may take an average of 4 – 6 weeks.
