Shot Clipboard

 

Waco Composites - one of the companies which supplies our bullet resistant material - shot a board for us. Here are the photos.

At our request, in their test facilities, they shot our UL Level I Ballistic Clipboard (13"x16") with a 38, a 22 and a 9mm. (Note: At the present time we are not making this board with a handle. We have brought it back as a "Desk Blotter" with no clip and no handle. See the "VIP Protection" page.)

In the 12 o'clock position is the 38, clocked at 859 feet/sec.

At 9 o'clock is the 22, clocked at 1102 feet/sec.

At 6 o'clock is the 9mm, clocked 1171 feet/sec.

The copper jacket of the 38 is easy to see. The 22 and the 9mm were simply absorbed by the board. This is great, huh? There is no Ricochet! Take a look at the closeup photos.

This is the side you're on. The impact only knocked off some paint.

 

 

 

The bulge is where the 9mm is inside the board.

Of course the 22 and the 38 are in there also. They simply do not make a bulge.

 

*What does BULLETPROOF mean?

It means our Ballistic Clipboards will stop bullets with the foot-pounds of pressure as described below:
