Police and Security News released its 2011 Body Armor Update, and Armor Dynamics Ballistic Sun Visor made the list of innovative products:
“New from Armor Dynamics is the Ballistic Sun Visor, an NIJ level IIIA visor which, when deployed as a full set, protects both windshield and side windows in standard police vehicles without compromising occupants’ visibility. The lightweight Ballistic Visor attaches to existing sun visors and can be transferred to different vehicles, when necessary, or even used as a hand shield.
Made with both soft and rigid composite ballistic material, the Ballistic Visor weighs only 1.8 pounds. It can defeat .44 Magnum SJHP 240-gr. Rounds shot from 16 feet at 1430 fps, along with .357 SIG FMJ FN 125-gr. Rounds shot from the same range at 1470 fps.”
