Level IV Stand-Alone Rifle Plates


Ballistics 100% Made in the USA
Note:  Export of Level IV Rifle Plates from the U.S. usually requires an export permit
(Level III plates can often be exported without an export permit.)

Ceramic Rifle Plates are Not Returnable

When you need Rifle Plates WITHOUT a soft Body Armor vest underneath, you need a Stand-Alone Rifle Plate. Level IV (i.e., Level 4) is tested to stop one hit of .3006 AP, and will easily stop lesser threats.

Level IV plates can stop multiple hits of lesser threats (as long as the hits have some space between). For example, our Lightweight 10" by 12" plate we have tested to stop 6 hits - 3 rounds of .308 FMJ (M80) plus 3 hits of 5.56 SS-109, aka M855.

All our Level IV Stand-Alone plates here have passed the NIJ 0101.05 or NIJ 0101.06 Certification (a few sizes use the same ballistic recipe, but have been independent ballistic lab tested to be compliant with the standard, instead of Certified).

Many models available in the thicker NIJ 0101.06 Certification for extra bump and drop protection (~0.9" thick), or the thinner NIJ 0101.05 standard (~0.7" thick).

Ceramic Rifle Plates are not fragile like your Grandma's tea china - but you should never "play Frisbee" with your Ceramic Rifle Plates. The 06 plates give a little more of a safety margin with 0.25" of cushioning on the front.

A customer put one of our Level IV Stand-Alone plates through a "ballistic torture test". It is impressive to see how many hits the plate took before finally succumbing:

Standard plates are heavier than the Lightweights, but the same level of ballistic protection if you are on a budget.

Why You Want BulletProofME to Ship Your Ceramic Plates


ANY Ceramic Rifle Plate can be damaged if abused - especially if dropped on its' corner. They are not delicate, like fine tea china, but, on the other hand, FedEx and UPS are notorious for being rough with packages.

So, every Ceramic Plate we ship FedEx or UPS is bubble-wrapped, and then DOUBLE-boxed with lots of padding to survive rough handling. We overpack, so that it would take a lot of obvious abuse to do any damage.

We stake our reputation of over ten years on doing it right.  Don't buy a plate that just gets thrown in a box and shipped out.
