TACTICAL SHIELDS

Reliance Armor offers a complete line of tactical shields. Three sizes of Personal Defense Shields are ideal for the officer on patrol or a narcotics "buy-bust", especially when a motor vehicle is involved. Next in line are the Tactical Entry Shields. Available in two sizes, Tactical Entry Shields can be delivered with conventional handles or with our new "hands-free"(patent pending) shield carrier. With Reliance's "hands-free" system, the shield stays securely mounted onto the shoulders without the use of restrictive straps or webbing. Shields can be taken on and off in just a couple of seconds. Our heaviest duty Rolling Bunkers come standard with non-puncture tires mounted on the rear of the shield. Available in two sizes, the rolling bunker needs to be tipped only a couple of inches to achieve full mobility. With our unique handle system, two officers can move the Rolling Bunker up or down a flight of stairs without sacrificing protection. All tactical shields can be obtained in a bullet resistant opaque material with a bullet resistant viewport or with a new Reliance exclusive ballistic glass. Reliance glass is formulated for one-way protection, allowing the shield user to remain protected behind the glass while retaining the ability to fire through the glass at an attacker.

Shields are available in the following sizes:

Model Size Threat Levels
Personal Defense 9 x 12 II & IIIA
Personal Defense 10 x 14 II & IIIA
Personal Defense 11 x 16 II & IIIA
Tactical Entry 20 x 23 II & IIIA

- Insert Photo of Terrorist Attack-

Can you guess which two men are about to have their day ruined?

Hint: It 's not the executives in the car...

 

These kidnappers had plans of making a million dollars. They had studied their target carefully. They had calculated what his company and family would pay for his return. They had a fool-proof escape route setup. They even had the stash house ready for their victims. What they didn't plan on was that their victim would be driving a custom-armored automobile from Brandon Enterprises!

How did this scenario turn out??? A graduate of or E&E (escape and evasion) driving school, our executive didn't panic, -- he took evasive action. First he hit the four-point tear gas system immobilizing these attackers in their tracks. Next he activated the smoke screen system making it almost impossible for the attackers to see them as they made their escape. Then they dropped an array of "road hazzards" (steel spikes) behind them making it virtually impossible for the attackers to chase them by vehicle. After our executive was a safe distance away, he pressed a hidden panic button instantly activating an on-board satellite tracking system alerting us to an emergency and signaling us to begin tracking him by satellite. Assistance was dispatched immediately. Impressed? He could have done a lot more! This is reality. This is the world of Brandon Enterprises... If you are an dignitary, politician, entertainer, executive, or from a wealthy family and vulnerable to kidnap, you need one of our vehicles. Don't wait until tragedy strikes you or one of your loved ones. Call us today.

Brandon Enterprises proudly offer our clients the finest in custom-armored automobiles:

HOW TO MEASURE FOR CORRECT VEST FIT

All Reliance Armor armor is available in sizes extra small through five extra large with lengths of extra short through five extra long.

PLEASE NOTE: Oversize charges of 15% apply to armor in sizes 2X and 3X or lengths 2X or 3X. Oversize charges of 25% apply to armor in sizes 4X or larger or lengths 4X or longer.

Easy Tape Measuring for Concealable Armor

1) Be measured in uniform if possible. This is the most accurate method of measuring.

2) Measure the chest around the fullest part of the chest. On women, measure around the fullest part of the bust. Record the number as your chest measurement.

3) WHILE SITTING, measure the front length starting from the "U" shaped area at the top of the sternum bone to the top of the gun belt. Record the number as your length measurement.

4) Measure around the officer's waist approximately 2" above the navel for male officers and female officers. Record the number as your waist measurement.

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: IS IT AGAINST THE LAW TO PURCHASE OR OWN BODY ARMOR?

A: NO! There is currently no law which restricts the civilian ownership of body armor. You may purchase and wear your body armor anywhere that you choose without fear of breaking any type of laws. However, in some countries outside of the United States body armor may not be imported or worn by civilians.

 

Q: WHAT IS THE BEST THREAT LEVEL FOR ME?

A: Although this is the most commonly asked question, it is similar to asking "What is the best car?" The answer will vary depending upon who you ask. The selection of personal body armor requires some time and thought on your part. Unless you have been given specifications from your department, you need to analyze what calibers that you are likely to encounter in your line of work or area. Once you have an idea of what the biggest caliber that you are likely to come up against, you should consult the "Threat Level Charts" and determine which is the best vest for you.

 

Q: What is the difference between a "Contour" vest and an "Extended Coverage" vest?

A: Depending upon your particular needs, or department requirements, you have the option of purchasing a vest which provides protection of the front (chest) and back (spine) only. This is what is known as a "contour" vest. (There is no side torso protection.) Despite this fact, this is by far the most popular style of vest in use today for three basic reasons. 1) They usually cost less. 2) They weigh less than a comparable full coverage model. 3) They are perceived by many to be cooler. The down side is that they also offer less protection than a "full coverage" vest.

A "full coverage" vest provides complete wrap-around protection of the torso (front, back & sides).

 

Q: IS IT TRUE THAT BODY ARMOR IS HEAVY AND UNCOMFORTABLE?

A: That was then, this is now! Today's body armor is designed to be comfortable for extended wear. Of course, if you have never worn body armor it does take a few days to get used to. Just as it takes a little adjustment to learn to carry a firearm and holster. After a few weeks pass you usually forget you even have it on. Generally, a level IIA vest weighs approximately 2 lbs; a level II vest weighs approximately 3 lbs.; and a level IIIA vest weighs approximately 4 pounds. The elastic straps which carry the armor are very comfortable and distribute the weight evenly.

 

Q: What is the difference between a "Concealable" vest and a "Tactical" vest.

A: To put it simply, a concealable vest can be worn under your clothing without being noticed, (depending upon the vest and the threat level, etc.) A tactical vest is one that has been designed to be worn on top of your uniform as in the case of SWAT teams, Special Response Teams, etc. They are usually of a higher threat level designed to withstand hits from a hi-powered rifle. Many feature special pouches to carry gear, communications equipment, munitions, etc.

 

Q. How long does soft body armor last before it has to be replaced?

A. Soft Body Armor is like any other type of equipment: it requires regular maintenance and care. Of course, these factors exert great influence on its usable life cycle. Officially, producers of aramid fibers and ballistic laminates recommend five (5) years of usable life. This is due to the fact that soft body armor is a relatively new technology and that, until the mid-1980's, there was no formalized scientific process to measure armor longevity. In 1986, DuPont, the maker of the aramid fiber named Kevlar, produced an official study that identified a five-year life cycle ceiling. However, TAPIC (Technology Assistance Program Information Center) did their own study that showed that even some ten-year-old armor performed as good as new.

Based upon the TAPIC tests and Reliance Armor's 20 plus years of experience in the industry, Reliance Armor believes that armor has a useful life beyond five years. Experience has shown that with re-inspection of the armor at three-year intervals, the useful life of soft body armor can be greatly extended. At three-year intervals, problems associated with normal wear and tear can usually be caught and corrected in time, allowing the product's full useful life to be realized. Reliance Armor has adopted a two-prong warranty program:

We offer a standard five year warranty on all Reliance Armor ballistic products that are not re-inspected under our exclusive extended warranty program. With participation in our voluntary reinspection program, Reliance Armor offers two extended warranties:

9-Year Woven Fabrics Warranty. Because woven aramids exhibit more wear than laminated ballistic fabrics, Reliance Armor offers an extended warranty of 9 years providing that vests are returned to the factory once every three years for inspection and correction of any possible defect arising from wear and use. Models with woven fabrics include the Aramid Series and the Softouch Series. (See Vest Refurbishment Below)

12-Year Laminated Fabrics Warranty. Because of outstanding wear characteristics, Reliance Armor offers an extended warranty of 12 years on laminated fabric vests, provided they are returned to the factory once every three years for inspection and correction of any possible defect arising from wear and use. Laminated fabrics such as Spectra Shield. Because of outstanding wear characteristics, Reliance Armor offers an extended warranty of 12 years on laminated fabric vests, provided they are returned to the factory once every three years for inspection and correction of any possible defect arising product is regularly inspected and serviced. The additional three years of use allows Reliance's laminated vests to be as economical as woven fabric vests based upon a per year cost basis.

 

Q: Will bullets really skip off the windows and body of my custom-armored automobiles like it does in the movies?.

A: NO. Sparks on the windows, not a scratch on the paint, no fear of a bullet making it's way in the car. Pure fiction. In reality real armor does not function like the armor that is portrayed in the movies. A custom-armored automobile is not an impenetrable fortress. It is a tool designed to enable you to survive an armed assault, and buy you the time necessary to make your escape. If you are attacked and fired upon, your vehicle will sustain damage. However, no bullets will penetrate the cabin. (Providing that you are protected by the proper level of armor, and you escape before you sustain the maximum number of hits that your clear armor will handle.)

 

Q: How much does it cost to armor a vehicle?

A: While this is a very common question, there are several different factors which determine the final cost of your conversion. The first thing to consider is of course, what type of vehicle that you want to armor. (Generally, the bigger the automobile, -- the higher the conversion cost.) The second determining factor is the level of armoring that you desire. The third and final consideration is the options that you want to add to your new vehicle. Prices range from $35,000 U.S.for a Level II conversion on a Pick-Up to $75,000 U.S. on a larger vehicle such as a Suburban or SUV.

Reliance's level IIIA aramid vest is the only 100% non-quilt-stitched armor available anywhere. Our exclusive 9-year warranty program covers all Reliance Aramid Series vests.

Spectra Series - Reliance's Spectra Shield® vests offer a very high degree of ballistic protection in every threat level. Because we take painstaking care to design our patterns to be more wearable, Reliance's Spectra Shield series has been widely recognized for years as the most wearable high performance armor available anywhere. In multiple hit scenarios, Spectra Shield vests outperform all others. Spectra Shield vests are available in NIJ threat levels IIA, II and IIIA. Our exclusive 12-year warranty program covers all Reliance Spectra Series vests.

Spectra/Gold Flex Series - Reliance Armor was the first company to develop and certify vest models with Allied Signal's Gold Flex® ballistic fabric. When combined with Spectra Shield®, Gold Flex hybrid vests offer lighter weights and increased flexibility over their 100% Spectra Shield counterparts. Gold Flex has been shown to be especially effective against the Chinese Norinco 7.62 x 25mm armor piercing bullet. Reliance's Gold Series vests are available in NIJ threat levels II and IIIA plus our own level IIIA+ Norinco defeating model - the 7.62. Our exclusive 12-year warranty program covers all Reliance Spectra/Gold Series vests.

Dyna Shield/Gold Flex Series - When light weight and performance are your ultimate criteria, no other vests offer more performance than Reliance's Dyna Shield/Gold Flex hybrids. In threat level II, the Dyna-Gold hybrid is only 13.6 ounces per square foot yet defeats 9mm bullets with a V-50 of 1770 feet per second, far over the requirements of threat level IIIA. No vests are thinner than Dyna Gold vests because the technology of Dyna Shield allows vests to be made with far fewer layers than vests with other technologies. Our exclusive 12-year warranty program covers all Reliance Dyna/Gold Series vests.

Softouch Series - Reliance Armor has developed the most wearable body armor package ever designed, Softouch. Incredibly soft and flexible, all Softouch vests offer very high levels of performance. All ballistic panels are covered with a soft and breathable layer of water shedding material, such as Gore-Tex® or Comfort-Tex® fabrics. In NIJ threat levels IIA and II, the Softouch Series is constructed from a combination of woven aramids and Allied Signal Gold Flex. Our exclusive 9-year warranty program covers all Reliance Softouch Series vests. The new Softouch Series vests are so superior to other products that Reliance Armor will refund your purchase price if you are not completely satisfied with this product. This is the first and only vest ever offered for sale with a money-back guarantee!

BOMBTHRET BLANKETS
Made of ballistic nylon with a fire resistant coating. Will contain explosions from a large variety of bombs and/or explosive devices. Sixteen sq. feet of coverage provides substantial protection; yet the blanket is light enough (22.5lb) to be carried by one man. In high magnitude explosions the blanket rises to a parachute configuration while the sides drop to contain the blast.

CERAMITIZED GLASS ARMOR (OPAQUE)
SIZE 4'X8' FLAT SHEET

Now you can create a bullet-proof room using our new ceramitized anti-ballistic panels. Specially fabricated from woven-roving glass fiber materials and laminated with thermo active resins. Each laminate cures under high temperature and pressure to create rigid inserts capable of greatly enhancing the performance of flexible armor systems when the CGA is used as a "strike face". Each projectile impact creates a sequence of programmed delamination, effectively decreasing projectile speed while deforming the incoming projectile. It has the ability to capture secondary projectile fragments, commonly called spall.
