HESCO’s 4800 personal protection armor plates are part of the company’s flagship 800 series. They offer considerably superior performance and enhanced protection when compared to similar products. These plates are designed primarily for very fast-moving and highly volatile environments. They are ideal for highly contested battlefields and combat zones that require both extensive protection as well as a very high degree of maneuverability.
HESCO 4800 series plates have been created from next-generation materials with state-of-the-art body armor plate technology. All HESCO 800 Series armor plates are far lighter than other personal protection plates. However, they still offer the highest protection level in their class. Every HESCO 4800 armor plate comes with a high standard water-resistant durable coating wrap. It delivers unmatched performance in the field, along with the rest of the top-of-the-line products of the 800 Series.
The 800 Series in general, has been crafted with Honeywell’s next-gen composite fabric. SPECTRA is not only as much as 15 times stronger than steel but also weighs much less. In fact, it reduces overall weight up to 40 percent while retaining its excellent strength and flexibility.
The HESCO 4800 is a lightweight plate that offers NJI Level IV protection. It protects the wearer against extremely dangerous and powerful military rifle cartridges such as the 7.62×51 NATO.30-06 AP (armor piercing) rounds.
The HESCO 4800 series is also fully compatible with both BI 4100 as well as BI 4101 Level IV Side Plates. This combination offers maximum protection against all threats to the critical parts of the body.
