WHAT IS A BALLISTIC CLIPBOARD?

 

 

Our Ballistic Clipboard is multiple layers of fiberglass fabric and resin put together under heat and pressure to make a solid board which feels much like a ceramic tile, but will not shatter or be penetrated, if shot by a firearm. We cover it with layers of primer and paint to protect you from the fiberglass fibers. (We do offer a small "Raw" board if you like fiberglass fibers. See the "Order Here - Catalog" page.)

This Ballistic Fiberglass is made in the USA. 

This Ballistic Fiberglass is a construction material designed for Judges Chambers, Banks, the Military, etc. We cut it into smaller pieces to make our clipboards. You may notice some slight surface blemishes, but they do not effect the ability of the boards to stop a bullet.  

We are now also carrying products made from Dyneema®(a high performance polyethylene fiber  .)

Our Ballistic Boards will stop the bullets and knives from your coworker (Gunman Kills 5 Co-Workers, Self ) , teacher (Professor shoots and kills 3 in 2010 at University of Alabama in Hunstville), student (too many to mention) or any enraged person who brings a gun, or knife, to the workplace, or school, and tries to kill you and as many other people as possible.

All of our Ballistic Boards have flame/heat resistant properties also.

They meet the standards for Underwriters Laboratories, "UL" and the National Institute of Justice, "NIJ".

Bulletproof* - See the bottom of this page for exactly what our UL Level I, UL Level III and NIJ Level IIIA clipboards will stop.

*********************************************

We have two companies which make our ballistic fiberglass which then becomes a Ballistic Clipboard. Both of these companies are in the USA.

Waco Composites makes ArmorCore which we use to make our boards which carry an Underwriters Laboratories "UL" seal of approval. These standards meet and exceed those of the National Institute of Justice (NIJ).

Watch this video of ArmorCore UL Level III vs. the 44 Magnum round.

and

Fiber-Tech makes our boards to standards of the "NIJ" and Underwriters Laboratories "UL" seal of approval.

This is the test setup required by NIJ.

The clips are held on by Key Posts (screws) which are designed for leatherwork. (Bill worked for Tandy Leather Company in another life.)

They are nickel plated and very sturdy. You can remove them if you wish. Keep in mind the paint may stick to the key posts and/or the clip, then paint may pull off the board. But you can repaint. These screw posts are not made in the USA, but at least Taiwan is not Red China. I think my clips are from Red China, but I can not find them made here. Sorry.
