About Ballistic Body Armour

Ballistic Body Armour (Pty) Ltd was established in 1986 to manufacture high-quality body armour, and manufactured the first bullet resistant vest in South Africa. This marked the first step in providing quality, durable body armour products.

Brief Company History

Ballistic Body Armour is based In Germiston, South Africa. From the very beginning Ballistic Body Armour has had a policy of developing and testing our own products. To achieve this, we have always had an in-house test laboratory, and today we have one of the most sophisticated test labs in the country (including v50 testing according to STANAG 2920).

Over fifteen years ago, Ballistic Body Armour expanded into blast protection, EOD and IED products, marketed and distributed by our sister company, Holdfast Systems. The same philosophy applied, and we have access to an explosive test range to conduct our development work.

Quality Control and Assurance

Overriding the research and development drive of Ballistic Body Armour is the determination to maintain the highest standards of quality and product performance. We are ISO 9001 registered, since 1999.

With an in-house ballistic test range, we have the unique ability to test all potential ballistic protection advancements thoroughly before it becomes available in the market.

We have the research and development (R&D) facilities to custom-design protection solutions to suit even the most unique operational requirements. We manufacture to meet all local and internationally-recognised body armour protection standards, including the SABS and NIJ. Our customers include law enforcement and military organisations throughout the world.

Ballistic Body Armour is proud to continuously provide the best possible protection to the end user.
