SPARTAN™ OMEGA™ AR500 BODY ARMOR SIDE PLATES
Armor befitting of a modern-day Spartan… The Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 Body Armor is sold as a pair of plates, and is constructed from ¼” thick lab certified AR500 Omega™ Armor ballistic-grade steel. Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 plates provide the operator with Level III protection in accordance with NIJ0101.06 standards. As with all other body armor sold by Spartan Armor Systems®, our Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 body armor has been independently tested and verified by an independent NIJ credentialed laboratory.
Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 Body Armor - True High-Quality Ballistic Threat Protection
Not all steel core body armor is created equal! At Spartan Armor Systems® we are honored to provide our customers with the highest quality armor on the market because we understand intimately what is at stake. All Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 Body Armor products use only ballistic LAB CERTIFIED AR500 steel. All purchases of our Spartan Armor products have current lab certificates available on request, ensuring you have peace of mind when it comes to receiving the highest quality and integrity with your Spartan Armor Systems® body armor. 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. Don’t settle for sub-standard, ineffective, low-quality steel armor - your life may depend on it. Read our "FAQ" to learn more about the extensive testing and quality assurance all Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 Body Armor is subjected to and to learn about the quality of steel we use to construct our body armor!
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 to protect the ballistic integrity throughout the entirety 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® Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 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.
Side Plate Weight (per plate):
- 6×6 approximately 2lbs 1oz (base coat) or 2lbs 15oz (full coat)
- 6×8 approximately 3lbs 10oz (base coat) or 3lbs 14oz (full coat)
Additional Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 Body Armor - Specs:
