Compliance with NIJ Standards

SafeGuard Armour® is dedicated to keeping its testing methods at the highest standards to ensure that its products are of the highest standards. We guarantee this by ensuring that all our armour is compliant with NIJ standards.

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is recognised as being the world leader in the testing of ballistic armour, and exists as the US Department of Justice’s research, development and evaluation branch. Part of the NIJ’s role is to further the standards of protection offered by body armour, while also helping to disseminate knowledge and raise awareness through relevant and useful information.

At SafeGuard Armour®, we ensure that our entire range of products meet the standards outlined by the NIJ[1] by mirroring their safety tests and developing armour that can exceed their required standards of protection.
