KDH Body Armor gets thumbs up from NIJ E-mail


KDH Defense Systems, Inc. (KDH), a leading manufacturer of American-made custom body armor solutions for military, law enforcement and federal agencies, today announced that it has received notification that its new ballistic body armor, Model MD-101-IIIA, has been certified by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), the research, development and evaluation agency of the U.S. Department of Justice, under the new NIJ Standard-0101.06 (NIJ .06). This new model is available for immediate purchase in concealable and tactical body armor configurations.

"We are pleased to receive this notice of compliance, the first of more than a half-dozen anticipated certifications under the new NIJ .06 Standard that the Company believes it will be receiving in the coming weeks," said Ron Gburek, Chief Operating Officer for KDH. "KDH remains committed to providing our law enforcement officers and federal agents with the very best in life-saving ballistic protection while simultaneously allowing for comfort, mobility, functionality and operational performance."


KDH Defense Systems' new NIJ .06 body armor is eligible for U.S. Department of Justice BVP (Bulletproof Vest Partnership Act) funding and is manufactured in accordance with ISO 9001:2008 standards. NIJ Standard-0101.06, Ballistic Resistance of Body Armor, is the latest evolution in standards by which law enforcement protective vests are measured. The NIJ .06 Standard establishes minimum performance requirements and test methods for the ballistic resistance of personal body armor intended to protect against gunfire. In addition, body armor that is in compliance with the NIJ .06 Standard must protect against amplified velocities of ammunition and extreme conditions.  For more information on KDH Defense Systems, visit them online at http://www.kdhdefensesystems.com/
