Armor Express is proud to present an entirely new family of helmets that will completely disrupt the way Law Enforcement views head protection. Certified to VPAM, the Gold Standard of ballistic testing within Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the advanced helmets bring first rate protection to tactical law enforcement, anti-terror and specialized police officers who may be exposed to close quarter combat and an increased risk of being shot within the head region. The AMP-1TP specifically, is the lightest and first composite (non-metal) helmet to achieve the certification through independent testing labs both in Europe and the U.S. The helmet is constructed of a multi-layered aramid composite, using a patented EBSP method – a unique production technique that creates elite ballistic capabilities previously attainable only in Titanium helmets. Seeing is believing, watch the video below to truly understand the difference between a standard level IIIA aramid helmet performance, and that of the AMP-1 TP BUSCH PROtective helmet – try not to flinch.

The BUSCH PROtective helmet family also includes a standard IIIA aramid helmet (AMP-1 E) along with a bump/training helmet (AMH-2). The AMH-2 offers agencies the ability to train without the unnecessary weight of a ballistic helmet as its architecture and accessories match that of its ballistic counterparts. This allows operators to build muscle memory during training that will transition seamlessly to their real-world operations.

AMP-1 TP Ballistic Helmet

AMP-1 TP Ballistic Helmet

First & Lightest Composite Helmet with VPAM Certification in the world.

Modular capability to increase your protection level using the unique side rail providing Speed Connect System (SCS) visor protection. Additional options include standard Ballistic and Non-Ballistic visors, NVG Mounts (Standard Glass fiber re-enforced PA Shroud or Wilcox Shroud), Pile patches (Velcro), Bungees and helmet covers.

VPAM is the Gold Standard of ballistic testing certification within Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Most Special Police units within Europe, including Germany’s GSG9 and SEK are required to have their ballistic helmets VPAM certified. Police Specialized units around the world deserve a level of protection that includes first-rate specifications (VPAM Standard). This standard, in comparison to the NIJ IIIA, tests certain ballistic aspects that are more relevant/specific to close quarter combat situations. Police special units/SWAT Teams, in comparison to soldiers, are more likely to suffer a ballistic head injury due to the nature of their work (Close Quarter Combat). Whereby, even today most helmets used by police armed response teams are helmets that are manufactured for military operations and may not provide the specific level of protection required by Law Enforcement officers dealing with armed insurgents in close quarters.

AMP-1 E Ballistic Helmet

The AMP-1 E specialized aramid shell is tested and certified to NIJ IIIA (9mm and 44 Magnum) and is also tested to protect against fragmentation according to STANAG 2920 with a V50 rating of 2,132 fps. Our standard features include an advanced pads system, wheel-dial system, and unique rail system. These components ensure that comfort, practicality and capability are provided, giving the user an added degree of confidence. The unique rail-system and its Speed Connect System give the user even more tactical and modular protective capability.

AMH-2 Bump/Impact Training Helmets

AMH-2 Bump/Impact Training Helmet

This non-ballistic platform is designed to offer a high level of impact protection, ventilation, and comfort, no matter what the task. The AMH-2 shell is certified to EN 397 for impact attenuation. This combined with our latest Comfort Protection Pad (CPP) suspension system offers both multi-impact & shock protection capability. This impact management system is further designed to offer good ventilation and comfort. The CPP system can be quickly adjusted, making it easy to tailor fit specific head shapes/sizes. Our retention system uses wheel dial technology which is easy to operate and provides a secure and snug fit.

The operational capability is further increased with our new multi-function side rail which can accommodate various devices (cameras, strobes, etc). This unique rail also provides our Speed Connect System where modular protective visor capability can be added in seconds. The AMH-2 is designed with the user in mind, providing first rate modular protection, ventilation, and comfort for prolonged periods of use.

Whether you’re fighting rural forest fires, riding around in an emergency response ambulance or just need a bump training helmet. the AMH-2 will provide you with the PROtection you require and much more!
