Instant Armor Releases Rigid Spartan Shield for First Responders

Instant Armor's Spartan Shield
Instant Armor's Spartan Shield

Designed and intended for first responders, Instant Armor's Spartan Shield is a two-piece, lightweight, rigid, ballistic shield that can be deployed in under five seconds. The handheld ballistic shield is capable of defending the user in active shooter, rescue, and assault situations. Choose from a variety of 4 x 10-inch ID nameplates (Police, Sheriff, S.W.A.T., FBI, and more) that can be attached by Velcro.

The Spartan Shield is designed to utilize all of the existing attachment straps that have made the Instant Armor Tactical Blanket Systems so versatile. It is available in both rifle and handgun versions.

Designed to meet or exceed N.I.J. threat level III (rifle) or IIIA (handgun), the Spartan Shield defeats high-powered rifle rounds and gives you a protection area 19 inches wide by 34 inches tall when deployed. It easily fits behind a seat or in a niche in a truck when folded, measuring only 19 by 19 inches. Its lightweight form allows lightning fast deployment at only 16.3 pounds.

All Instant Armor products are made in the USA.

Instant Armor's Spartan Shield can be folded when not in use.
