Ballistic Helmets by Indian Armour
Our ballistic helmets have been specifically designed for use by civil police, military, SWAT, and Special Forces officers. These are also essential for use by law enforcement agencies, para-military forces, federal agencies, first responders as well as media personnel. With an impressive clientele over Europe, Africa, Asia, and the USA, we guarantee you the best performing ballistic helmets at highly competitive prices. These ballistic helmets are lightweight and ergonomically designed to be comfortable for long-time wear preventing operational fatigue. High tenacity ballistic grade fibers such as DuPont™ Kevlar®, Teijin Aramid™ Twaron®, and even UHMWPE are used in multiple layers to ensure superior head protection. These ballistic headgears have also been engineered to protect against fragments and shrapnel that can prove to be fatal to the users. A high level of shock and impact absorption makes our helmets one of the highest performing ranges of ballistic helmets in the market.
With over 2 decades of experience in manufacturing advanced combat & tactical helmets, we have developed our products to provide complete satisfaction to our customers. Our head protection gears are of top-notch quality and the helmet profile is minimal, perfect for tactical and stealth situations.
Our ballistic headgears are made with advanced composite materials and are built to be durable and reliable, offering extreme comfort in combat zones. These premium bullet-resistant helmets are manufactured to the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Level IIIA standards and are available in MICH, PASGT, and Special Force designs. We can also offer versions that are in full compliance with the MIL-STD set by the Department of Defense (DOD).
What is a Tactical Helmet, and what are the latest advancements in relation to its materials?
A Tactical helmet is designed to protect the wearer during tactical situations. These helmets were originally designed for the military, but since then they have made their way into law enforcement and other relevant services. Its application has managed to evolve over the previous century, from blocking shrapnel to stopping bullets.
In the 1970s, Dupont™ launched Kevlar®, a lightweight fabric material that has now been regarded as protective armour. Teijin™ is yet another well-known manufacturer of ballistic fabric materials, featuring Twaron® fibres. Modern helmets come with a variety of padding solutions for added comfort, as well as a range of accessories and extensions.
What situations might necessitate the use of a ballistic helmet?
A ballistic helmet not only protects your delicate head, but also protects you from severe temperatures, fire, water, dampness, and ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
Military, police forces, and other law enforcement agencies who are continuously exposed to potentially dangerous circumstances such as crossfires, riots, and wars are at a greater risk of injury and even death.
During natural disasters such as tornadoes and storms, internal or international attacks, rebellions, catastrophic events, and so on, a civilian will need to shield themselves from the worst calamities. Ballistic helmets can be considered a vital protective gear during rescue operations in such disasters.
Are military helmets grenade-proof? What level of protection can a ballistic helmet offer?
Ballistic helmets are designed to protect the wearer’s head from shrapnel, weapons such as artillery, bombs, rockets, hand-thrown grenades, satchel charges, and other explosives. Depending on the NIJ threat levels for which it is designed, ballistic helmets protect against different types of handguns.
Other blunt objects, such as the edge of a rifle, the swing of a handheld hammer, or a sharp blade, might seriously harm or kill the victim, but a tactical helmet will protect the user from such blunt force strikes and injuries.
What can be considered a perfect ballistic helmet for you?
The perfect ballistic helmet protects your life while still allowing you to operate comfortably and spontaneously. The bulletproof helmets are not completely bulletproof, and the modern helmets offer varying degrees of protection depending on the NIJ level to which they are tested.
A perfect ballistic helmet will free your hands by incorporating cameras, lights, and other features on the helmet based on your needs, protecting against head injuries such as collisions and providing a wide range of benefits such as protection against shrapnel, impacts from the edge of a rifle, and so on.
Furthermore, the psychological impact of wearing a helmet should not be overlooked. Feeling safer and knowing what your advantages are could also enhance your confidence and help you focus better on the task at hand.
