These armor plates developed and used by the IDF, this Hashmonai front armor plate is lightweight and is used in special vests made for the Israeli army, these vests specially designed to fit these Hashmonai armor plates.
These Hashmonai ballistic plates have been made from High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE). This material is not cheap and it is suitable for making bulletproof plates because of its high strength to weight ratio.
High-Density Polyethylene was chosen because of the factor that the bulletproof plate is relatively light, 3kg in weight. The Hashmonai front ballistic plate, which has dimensions of 40cm around the lower body and 28cm around the upper body is stand-alone, this feature means that there is no need for soft armor layer to be used with it.
This hard armor plate has been specially shaped like a basketballer’s armless shirt in order to cover and protect the vital organs. This means is that the Hashmonai armor plates will cover a bigger area than regular armor plates that usually come in a 25x30cm area of protection.
This plate allows for better mobility of the wearer. The wearer can swing the hands through 360 degrees without any hitches, and it is particularly useful in situations that require the wearer to run for a long distance especially while holding a gun.
This plate was specially designed this way so the soldier can also sit comfortably without the plate high will press the neck or the legs and will allow the soldier to sit for a long period of time.
The Hashmonai armor plate is not meant to repel a bullet like a ricochet because if it bounces off with too much energy, then it becomes another lethal weapon. These Hashmonai bulletproof plates are able to absorb the force from a bullet.
These Hashmonai plates come in level III rating and are highly recommended to be used as they are lightweight and can stop rifle fire, and they do not require any additional ballistic material.
- Ballistic material: Ceramic; Composite
- The protection level is III according to NIJ interim requirements 0101.04.
This plate is designed to achieve NIJ Level III protection and is a “Stand Alone” plate. “Stand Alone” plates are designed and tested to defeat ballistic threats using the plate only.
No ballistic vest is required, as all the ballistic energy and fragments are stopped in the plate. These plates are usually reserved for tactical operations or anti-terrorist work where the ammunition threat is unknown, or if the wearing of a vest is considered too cumbersome.
Bulletproof vests are designed to ‘trap’ and slow bullets down as they attempt to pass through the vest. BulletProof Vests come in two different types; hard and soft. The ‘soft’ armors are designed to protect against most handgun and small arms ammunition, whereas ‘hard’ armors are designed to stop high caliber and armor-piercing rounds.

- Size Front: 412 X 340 mm ± 5.
