Taurus™ correctional body armor provides corrections officers essential puncture protection from prison shanks and spikes and is extremely light weight and flexible.
Each of our ballistic lines is tested beyond the NIJ Standard – in-house, with special threat requirements as deemed necessary by you, our customer. Our goal is to give you the peace-of-mind that can only come with watching your purchase be put to the test, right before your eyes. Our in-house testing facility is state of the art, and our capabilities are beyond many of the certified labs in the field today.
Soft armor comes protected in a seam-sealed ripstop pad cover. Each configuration is certified to the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Standards, as well as vigrously tested in-house at our Ballistic Research Laboratory (BRL). During testing we go above and beyond the anticipated testing protocols in order to ensure that our armor products are second to none.
