Home > Press > First Choice Armor Presents Its Newest Innovative Product: N-Force(TM) Ballistic Vest Series

Abstract:
N-Force(TM) ballistic vest is the latest development in soft flexible body armor from First Choice Armor (FCA) utilizing the super-advanced power of Nano-Repel(R). N-Force(TM) is certified in NIJ 0101.04/2005 Interim requirements in Level II for both male and female. This new ballistic vest comes standard with a sleek new carrier design with diamond-rip-stop nylon construction and low-profile hook-and-loop suspension strap system. The unique design of the carrier lends itself to easily inserting 7" x 10" trauma inserts. Additionally, FCA's exclusive Life-Shell(TM) or Kap(TM) Plate inserts available in sizes 5" X 8" and 7" x 10" step up concealable protection. These knife and spike certified trauma products can be worn with the standard N-Force(TM) carrier.

First Choice Armor Presents Its Newest Innovative Product: N-Force(TM) Ballistic Vest Series

SPINDALE, NC | Posted on September 3rd, 2008

Nano-Repel(R) is utilized exclusively in this new vest series, N-Force(TM) from First Choice Armor. "It's in the fabric" is a great way to describe the unique characteristics of this patent-pending Nano-Repel(R). This fabric-coating technology, Nano-Repel(R) uses hydrocarbon chains that are created during the impregnation process to form a fortification matrix around the ballistic material microscopically. This technology incorporates a phase change mechanism that enhances its energy absorption properties and allows the energy of a projectile (bullet) to dissipate over greater area of the ballistic (vest) panel. Independent testing reveals significantly decreased trauma and back face signature readings, exceptional resistance to environmental conditioning, and higher V-50 results.

"FCA focuses on building products and services that offer distinct value -- and set us apart from the pack," states Daniel Walsh, president of First Choice Armor. "N-Force(TM) is just another example of FCA's unique, functional product offering for the law enforcement and security forces community."

Currently, the N-Force(TM) ballistic vest Series is available in Level II for male and female, and Level IIIA is pending NIJ certification.
