Balancing Weight, Thickness, and Cost with NIJ SAPI Plates

For professionals relying on body armor for their safety, the weight and thickness of the protective gear is a defining factor. They seek solutions that are lightweight, yet uncompromising in protection. This is where our hard body armor plates in ESAPI, swimmers’ cut, shooters’ cut or our proprietary multicurve shape come into play. Designed meticulously, these plates ensure optimal protection without weighing the user down or restricting natural movement.

M855A1, SS109, M193, 7N10 and other special threats

We are witnessing a change in the definition of hard armor plates. With current standards falling behind on development in threats, more and more composite plates are requested to defeat calibers outside the conventional standards. Integris Composites has a long history of supplying governments and federal agencies with special threat plates to defeat M855A1, SS109, 7N10, or 7.62x54R ammunition.

Efficient Lead Time with ESAPI Plates and Standard Products

In the world of defense and security, time is of the essence. Delays in receiving essential protective gear can delay your mission. Recognizing this urgency, Integris Composites prioritizes swift lead times, ensuring our body armor plates and other standard products reach our clients when they need them most.


Every mission, every task force, and every individual have unique protection requirements. This often necessitates tailored armor plates, specifically designed in accordance with prevalent test standards. Moreover, when integrating these plates with soft solutions, certification becomes paramount.

We recognize this intricate need, ensuring our ballistic armor and vest plates are developed and certified to meet rigorous standards, providing peace of mind to the wearer. As one of the largest providers of hard body armor plates globally, we provide a large portfolio of plates certified in accordance with prevalent standards such as NIJ 0101.04, NIJ 0101.06, VPAM, as well as numerous national standards.
