KDH NIJ Standard 0101.06 Ballistic Systems

As street threats continue to evolve, KDH’s research and development efforts continue to provide lighter, more flexible and higher performing ballistic solutions exceeding the NIJ standards while ensuring that your comfort and safety remain uncompromised.

KDH not only designs and build body armor, but redefines performance excellence and push the limits of what’s possible, ensuring the vest you wear is stronger, lighter and more comfortable – and one day, may save your life.

Ballistic Resistance of Body Armor NIJ Standard-0101.06 is an NIJ (National Institute of Justice) Standard that establishes minimum performance requirements and test methods for the ballistic resistance of personal body armor protecting the torso area. The standard is limited to ballistic resistance only and does not address resistance from knives or other sharply pointed objects.

KDH NIJ Standard 0115.00 Stab Resistant Body Armor

NIJ Standard-0115.00 establishes minimum performance requirements and test methodology for body armor that is designed to protect the torso against stab and slash weapons. Body armor covered by this standard are grouped into one of two protection classes (‘Edged Blade’ and ‘Spike’) depending on the type of threat environment. Within each protection class, the armor is further categorized into one of three protection classes (1, 2 and 3).
