Kibo focus ballistic resistant buildings are designed to protect the people we rely on to protect us.
Guard huts have been rigorously tested primarily against ballistic standards, but also against blast.
Products are tested under both laboratory conditions and live firing demonstrations. All of the steel and glass used in the manufacture of bullet proof products is tested in Nato registered of the Us National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Standand 0108.04 Ballistic Resistant Protective Materials.
The standard specifies the testing methods and outcomes for a range of ammunition types, the highest being Level IV which demands resistance from 30 cal.(7,62x51) rounds and which is the minimum performance achieved by our products range.
Live firing demonstrations are also carried out for potential customers either at our factory or at the clients'facility, where the products are exposed to extreme testing. A range of calibres of ammunition up to 50 cal. (12,7x99 NATO)machine gun rounds are fired at the products. As an example, the biggest test to date involved the firing of over 120 rounds at 2-man focus sentry box without achieving a single penetration of either the steel or glass. Documentation is available to potential clients.
Kibo ballistic resistant buildings are designed to achieve 2 different levels of protection.
The first is in accordance with the US National Institute of Justice standard Level IV which is similar to the NATO B7 standard and will resist up to 7.62mm/30-06cal armour piercing ammunition. (Size of AK47 rounds).
The second is what we call Kibo Level IV+ which will resist up to 0.50cal/12.7mm rounds which are used e.g., in heavy calibre machine guns.
All kibo's products comply with the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) ballistic standard Level IV or higher (NATO NCAGE CODE:G1954).
