Rifle Plates NIJ Certification

The 05 vs. the 06 Standard

Ballistics 100% Made in the USA
Note:  Export of Level IV Rifle Plates from the U.S. usually requires an export permit
(Level III plates can often be exported without an export permit.)

Ceramic Rifle Plates are Not Returnable

In a nutshell, NIJ 06 Certified Rifle Plates typically have 0.25" (6 mm) of foam padding on the front (strike face). This is to better withstand damage from the impact of the tough drop test, where the plate is slammed down on a steel deck, and then X-rayed to check for cracking.

So if you think you might be going down hard on your chest, for example, NIJ 06 plates are less likely to be damaged by the impact. The best choice if rough use is expected.

The tradeoff is that NIJ 06 plates are ~0.25" thicker, weigh a little more, and cost a little more than the traditional NIJ 05 Standard plates. So for less rough duty, the NIJ 05 plates may work for you.
