ERT – Lightweight Level III+
The United Shield Lightweight Level III+ ERT ballistic shield is a mobile high protection shield which provides multi strike protection (5 strikes) from 7.62 x 39 Ball (Mild Steel Core). This shield is water jet cut curved with an ambidextrous tri grip handle. While the NIJ Level III rating is only tested to 7.62 x 51 NATO Ball (M80), United Shield International have built this shield to stop the additional round 7.62×39 MSC AK47, 5.56 x 45 55gr m193 and 5.56 x 45 62gr Federal Bonded. We designate this as a Level III+, as we meet the standard NIJ III and have added protection for an additional threat.
