SPARTAN™ OMEGA™ AR500 BODY ARMOR SWIMMERS CUT SET OF TWO

$146.99$289.26

You have the choice of getting our AR500 Body Armor formed on a continual radius die (single curve) or with our proprietary and patented Advanced Triple Curve™ (ATC) formation. It is important to note that our single curve plate is the equivalent of what our competitors deem “multi-curve” and 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 AR550 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.

SPARTAN™ OMEGA™ AR500 BODY ARMOR SWIMMERS CUT SET OF TWO

 

Product Overview

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.

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 in order to protect the ballistic integrity 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.
