SPARTAN™ OMEGA™ AR500 BODY ARMOR SWIMMERS 10" x 12" CUT SET OF TWO - Advanced Triple Curve (ATC) with Full Coat Encapsaloc™
Sleek, lightweight, and ready to move, the Swimmers Cut Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 Body Armor affords operators with increased mobility, a decrease in overall weight. The “Swimmers Cut” gets its name from the improved range of motion in the shoulders due to the angle of cut in the top corners of the plate. This allows for a lighter and less obstructive body armor plate while still providing coverage for vital organs. Swimmers Cut Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 Body Armor is constructed from lab certified AR500 ballistic grade steel, (¼” thickness) and these body armor plates provide the operator with Level III protection in accordance with NIJ0101.06 standards. 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. When the environment dictates speed and mobility as primary and critical factors, the Spartan omega AR500 Body Armor Swimmers Cut Plates are an excellent choice.
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
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.
Exceptional Comfort & Engineering
These body armor plates come in our proprietary and patented Advanced Triple Curve™ (ATC) formation. It is important to note that our ATC design is a true multi-curve plate with unique curvature at the top, bottom, and sides of the plate. At Spartan Armor Systems® we have machined custom tooling to craft our plates with a sleek curvature that conforms and wraps to your torso for enhanced ergonomics. Spartan Armor Systems®™ is proud to be the FIRST in the industry to commercially offer the triple-curved Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 Body Armor. Spartan Armor Systems®’ ATC body armor allows the operator to shoulder their weapon with the most freedom and limited discomfort. The ATC design provides a snug, comfortable fit and “hugs” the operator’s body, resulting in a significant increase in comfort and operational maneuverability. Our custom-configured CNC equipment and advanced understanding of what makes Steel Core Armor most effective has allowed us to create dies that form our body armor without any “crease” bends. Crease-bends, “work hardens” the plate, which causes a significant amount of stress to the portion of the plate being placed under load during the manufacturing process. We HIGHLY suggest when doing your research, that you ask any manufacturer under consideration if they crease bend their body armor. This process results in increased potential for plate fatigue and failure, which is why Spartan Armor Systems®™ has gone the extra mile to create this unique die process.
