In the interests of clarity we have not included the SG1 and RF1 plates in this table. These specifications are not used by media or military users. For interested parties, all the plates in this table (except HAP-1) would pass an RF1 test if used with a IIIA or HG2 soft armour. All the plates (no exception) would pass the SG1 test on a IIIA or HG2.
HAP-8 is a standalone plate and does not need to worn over armour - it is worn in a harness, or in the plate pockets of low specification vests (even our Anti-Stab). All other specifications are worn in conjunction with our NIJ Level IIIA (0101.04) soft armour.
This table relates to BODYARMOUR UK Plates. It would be incorrect to use it as a guide to other companies plates. It contains test figures we have compiled over many years to produce a guide that supersedes the expectations of our customers.
HAP-4 is capable of the HAP-1 specification if worn with any vest (even stabs) supplied by BODYARMOUR UK
