What makes us different?

We are where science and technology meet the frontline. We use a space-age, super steel to make our Durus 8000 body armor. At only 5mm thick, it is the thinnest, lightest, and strongest steel body armor on the planet!
Twenty years of experience in the manufacturing of armored vehicles, bulletproof vests, and plate carriers has aided us the development of a patented process that allows us to form this super steel to the SAPI curvature standards set forth by the US Department of Defense for the production of their ceramic plates. Not only is this curvature unheard of in steel body armor, it was unimaginable with this type of steel, until now...Our bulletproof armor is built like a tank...literally!
