When is this the right plate?

BulletSafe thinks that this is the perfect plate for people who will see active-shooter situations often. While our ceramic plate offers great protection, some customers need to wear their plates so often that they want the lightest thing possible. These folks will want the BulletSafe Alpha Plate.

This Ballistic Plate is a Standard Size

The BulletSafe Ballistic Plate fits securely in the pocket of the Medium-4X BulletSafe Bulletproof Vests.  It is a little bit too thick to fit in the Small Size BulletSafe vest. It also fits in most standard plate carriers. It is 11 7/8 inches tall, 10 inches across, and 1.0 inches in depth. It is curved to fit close to your body, and features a nylon cover that protects it from the sun and typical wear and tear.

Is this the best Lightweight Ballistic Plate on the market?

Yes, not only is it within 1 lb. of the lightest plates, it is far less expensive than anything comparable. At $249 it is a great value.

How many Ballistic Plates should I buy?

It depends on how much protection you desire. SWAT teams and those who expect to be shot at from the front wear one ballistic plate in the chest pocket. Those who are in warzones wear two ballistic plates: one in the front pocket, and one in back. Analyze your unique situation to decide on how many plates you will need.

What is the protection level of this plate?

The BulletSafe Alpha Plate meets the ballistic requirements of NIJ 0101.06 Level III. It will stop 6 steel jacketed rounds from a 7.62mm M80 with a mass of 9.6g and a velocity of 2780 ft/s. We should note that this plate will also stop rounds from ARs and AKs which are slower and lighter than this. This protection level is perfect for people who are concerned about active shooter situations and need rifle protection.

What is the protection level when used in your vest?

This plate was certified alone as level III. With a level IIIA vest behind it we expect improved performance, but cannot say if it will pass the NIJ level IV certification.

How long is the life?

This plate is guaranteed to work and stop bullets as promised for five years. After those five years, there is not enough research on the materials used to be 100% sure that the plate will continue to stop bullets as promised. For this reason, the plate has a useful life of 5 years.

Gord L.

This thing is light. Really light.

I can't believe how light this is.

I met this company at a Active Shooter Response convention. I was concerned that stopping an active shooter would result in a really heavy kit of stuff, but this plate is really, really light. It almost feel like nothing when you hold it. Really light.

Realy light
Mark Epler

This plate is realy light. I owned AR500 plates and at first I told myself I was getting a good workout, but like any workout, after 40 minutes it just turned into terrible work. I wanted lighter stuff, so I bought these. They are realy light. They almost feel like nothing at all. I’m really impressed and they stop more rounds than ceramic.

Light Weight, Great Price
Steve Miller

Our department was looking for some lightweight plates. We did a little chart of what was available and while some of the lightest brands were up to one half pound lighter than this one, they were also over $1,000. We decided to save a huge chunk of money and go with this. When they arrived everyone was surprised at just how light they felt. It’s a good thing they have the youtube videos because I would never belieave that anything this light will stop an AR15.
