Police and Security News released its 2011 Body Armor Update, and Armor Dynamics Ballistic Sun Visor made the list of innovative products:
â€œNew 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 occupantsâ€™ 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.â€
