Point Blank Enterprises to Demonstrate its Newest Innovations in Advanced Tactical Armor Systems, Carrier Designs and Hard-Armor Products at the 2016 National Tactical Officers Association Tactical Operations Conference

Point Blank Enterprises announced that it will be demonstrating its newest innovations in advanced tactical armor systems, carrier designs and hard-armor products at the 2016 National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA) Tactical Operations Conference. PBE will display its range of advanced offerings at booth #407 during the expo, which runs from August 14-19 at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. Among the latest ballistics armor and accessories that attendees will view first-hand, are PBE’s revolutionary Alpha-1tactical armor system, SOHPC GEN III hard plate carrier, 555 Steel Plates, and Trifecta X shield. All are offered under the Company’s Point Blank Body Armor and PARACLETE brands: Alpha-1 " This revolutionary tactical armor system offers high-performance ballistic protection integrated in a fully functional and scalable design to meet specific mission needs. With split-second precision, the vest can be immediately released in two quick movements without the use of hardware or cables. SOHPC GEN III " This plate carrier tactical system is innovatively designed to provide unmatched comfort, protection and adaptability. Through the addition of an adjustable cummerbund and optional side plate pouches for hard armor plates, the SOHPC is the operator’s choice for today’s missions. 555 Steel Plates " These high performance plates defeat high velocity rifle rounds which include the M80, M855 Green Tip, M193, and M43. Engineered with a patented heat quench process, the 555 Steel Plate’s fine grain, martensitic micro-structure provides high tensile strength, resulting in exceptional ballistic performance coupled with minimal back-face deformation. Trifecta X Shield " This shield provides officers with NIJ Level III plus protection in a lightweight design for immediate active shooter response. The shield’s robustness delivers high-performance protection and optimal functionality. Additionally, the Company will introduce its most advanced material technologies yet. These advancements include the first-of-its-kind Zephyr Frame System, designed to offer maximum comfort and airflow between the operator and their PBE tactical carrier. The incredibly durable Frame System creates a standoff using a positive tension system suspending the carrier off of the wearer’s chest and back allowing openings on the top, bottom, and both sides. The side channels allow air and wind to travel laterally under the tactical carrier, while the top and bottom openings allow hot air to escape while cooler air circulates in. The standoff beneath the carrier also creates an impact reduction effect, drastically reducing back-face by 60% or more. This suspended area increases comfort, as there are no hard points or dense foam to create pressure points. The shape of the Zephyr Frame allows the system to work as a lightweight load lift, creating two wedge shapes in the front and back, which support the weight of the carrier and takes pressure off the shoulder. The load is transferred instead to the mid torso without the need for a belt or ridged element connecting the kit to the hips, which allows for maximum mobility. Blunt trauma from handgun and rifle rounds will be reduced greater than 80% when the Zephyr Frame System is used in-conjunction with PBE advanced armor solutions. This game changing reduction in blunt force trauma will significantly enhance the tactical officer’s ability to survive and continue the fight. PBE, in partnership with DSM Dyneema®, will also be showcasing its first-to-market laser cut carrier vests with Dyneema® Fabric. This next-generation fabric is three times stronger than those used in traditional carriers and was developed to bring unprecedented high-strength, low density and water-resistance benefits to officers. Compared to the typical nylon MOLLE webbing used on many tactical vests, the thin, yet exceptionally durable Dyneema® Fabric significantly reduces the weight associated with thick nylon webbing. Not to mention, the material is specially designed to decrease moisture absorption. The ultra-high molecular weight material provides the load-bearing and comfort capabilities that tactical officers need in their vests, enabling them to perform optimally even under the most extreme conditions.

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.
