Styles are either covert (concealed under the clothing) or overt (worn over the clothing). With covert styles, you can’t tell a person is wearing body armour, but some wearers find them less comfortable as they’re worn closer to the skin. Overt styles are easier to put on and take off, and potentially more comfortable, but can present the wrong image for certain job roles.
BODY ARMOUR - STAB VEST
The Fortis Stab Vest protects the vital inner body parts from low-to-medium force stabs, thrusts, cuts & blows or attacks with sharp, edged or spiked weapons, including hypodermic syringes. The Fortis Stab Vest has been tested and certified to the United Kingdom's strict Home Office Police & Scientific Development Branch Standard KR1+SP1 and is CE marked.
Firearms are certainly
dangerous, but contrary to the wide perception knives can be
as lethal. Even worse, knives are a more common threat
weapon and as such the risk of a potentially deadly attack
with knives is much higher. Until now manufacturers
developed effective protective solutions against firearms,
but ballistic protection is not capable of
stopping knives. This can be solved with the Fortis
Stab Vest and Fortis
Dual Purpose Body Armour.

BODY ARMOUR - FLOTATION ARMOUR
The Fortis range of armoured buoyancy jackets and armoured inflatable lifejackets is designed for use by law enforcement and military personnel on operations such as pursuing, boarding and searching ships, and arresting and escorting ships to port. Deck operations and boardings can lead to personnel falling into the sea and drenching their armour.

Fortis armoured buoyancy jackets have sufficient inherent buoyancy (up to 100 Newtons) to aid survival in calm, ocean and coastal waters and inland waterways.
Fortis armoured inflatable jackets have sufficient buoyancy (up to 275 Newtons) to aid survival of unconscious wearers in deep ocean waters. Jackets are fitted with inflatable collars.
