Point Blank Enterprises Announces the Introduction of the Alpha EliteTM Black

Point Blank Enterprises (PBE) announced the introduction of the Alpha EliteTM Black, a product extension of the Alpha EliteTM Series. The latest Alpha Elite Black ballistics model is an enhancement to the previous Alpha Elite design, offering an additional 17% weight reduction while still providing the same high level of protection. The newest design will be showcased at the 2016 Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) taking place January 19-22 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. With the latest generation of Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology by DSM, Alpha EliteTM Black weighs a mere 0.79 psf (a remarkable reduction from the previous weight of 0.87 psf), with 9mm V-50s greater than 2,000 fps. The Alpha EliteTM Series was launched after Point Blank engineers began searching for a ballistic material that would meet the rigorous demands of U.S. Special Operations forces deployed in the world’s most dangerous regions. Similar to the original Alpha Elite product, Alpha Elite Black includes the Dyneema® Force Multiplier Technology ballistic material that was developed to meet and exceed global standards for Law Enforcement, Military and U.S. Special Operations forces applications. It is designed to defeat high-velocity handgun rounds and fragmentation with minimal backface-deformation. Additionally, it offers truly superior multi-hit protection. This unique ballistic material assures that the Alpha Elite Series lives up to its name: first among the finest. Key attributes of Point Blank’s Alpha Elite Series include: Lightest and thinnest NIJ 0.06 Level IIIA packages; Model AXIIIA exceeds NIJ, DEA, FBI 4.1 protocol and German SK1 test requirements; Extremely high effectiveness against fragmentation; Exceptional multi-hit and special threats performance; Extraordinarily efficient absorption of impact energy; Availability in both male and female versions as well as concealable and tactical configurations. Since the launch in January 2014, Point Blank Enterprises has provided over 79,000 vests with Alpha Elite ballistics alone to U.S. law enforcement -- in less than two years. Point Blank estimates that nearly 30% of the body armor sold in the U.S. during 2015 has been the Alpha Elite. The system is rapidly becoming the body armor of choice for numerous LE departments nationwide including Chicago Police, Houston Police, Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, Los Angeles Police, Miami-Dade Police, New York City Police, Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Orlando Police, San Antonio Police, Texas Department of Public Safety, Utah Highway Patrol, Washington D.C. Metro Police, and various federal agencies.
