The Ceramic Plates Stand Alone Level IV (4) is a plate that is an add-on component/insert to a body armor Level IIIA. For instance, its primary purpose is to absorb and disrupt the kinetic energy of a bullet impact and reduce the blunt trauma transferred to the wearer of the vest. (Note: The body armor is not included)
Ceramic Plates Stand Alone Level IV (4) can be worn without buying a body armor of Level IIIA. In other words, if you already have an empty vest you can just purchase the “Stand Alone” plates.

- Protection level IV (4).
This plate achieves NIJ Level IV (4) protection and is a “Stand Alone” plate. These plates defeat ballistic threats using the plate only. Therefore, no ballistic vest needs, as the plate will stop all the ballistic energy and fragments. For instance, tactical operators and counter-terror units are usually using these plates specifically where the ammunition threat is unknown, or if the wearing of a vest is too cumbersome.
Bulletproof vests trap and slow bullets down as they attempt to pass through the vest. For example, bulletproof Vests come in two different types; hard and soft. The ‘soft’ armors protect against most handgun and small arms ammunition, whereas ‘hard’ armors stop high caliber and armor-piercing rounds.
