In 2022, Spartan Armor Systems doubled its facility from 12,000 square feet to 24,000 square feet, allowing the company to vertically integrate. This allows Spartan Armor Systems to have better control of its supply chain, inventory and order fulfillment, as well as quality control. Vertical integration also enables rapid prototyping and fast-to-market solutions for all levels of body armor with minimal lead times, even for large orders. Prototypes can be provided in a couple of weeks, compared to six to eight weeks for competitors.

Spartan Armor Systems’ turnkey solution also includes product photography and the necessary product information to quickly launch e-commerce products. All Spartan Armor Systems body armor products are proudly made in the USA at their Tucson, Arizona facility.

To produce ceramic armor plates, Spartan Armor Systems uses an autoclave to bond ceramic and composite materials, creating a void-free bond and providing the highest level of protection. The competition uses a pressure plate and adhesive, which is not as efficient as the Spartan Armor Systems method. Using an autoclave, Spartan Armor Systems is able to produce Level IV body armor that is unmatched in the industry.

Spartan Armor Systems takes a unique approach to manufacturing soft armor plates. It uses a multi-layer fabric cutter to cut the aramid fibers and Kevlar materials, ensuring they are cut to the exact specifications needed for the armor. The company then uses a method called tack bar to hold all the layers together, providing added strength and durability. Additionally, it uses a material called ripstop nylon to coat the Kevlar and carbon fibers, making them waterproof and providing additional protection in wet conditions.

Spartan Armor Systems prides itself on its advanced manufacturing process for UHMWPE body armor. It uses state-of-the-art technologies and materials to create a strong, lightweight armor that offers superior protection. The manufacturing process begins with sourcing high-quality UHMWPE fibers, which are then carefully cut and arranged to create layers of materials. These layers are then joined using a specialized process that ensures a strong and long-lasting final product. The result is a UHMWPE bulletproof vest that is both reliable and effective, giving your customers the peace of mind that they are protected at all times.

Spartan Armor Systems is known for producing the best steel armor plates in the industry. It controls the process from start to finish by sourcing its steel from a plant in the United States and assigning each batch of steel a heat number to track throughout the process. Spartan Armor Systems uses a laser cutter to cut the steel, which puts less heat on the steel and provides a better cut. Their pressing process is done in-house using four individual presses custom built for the company’s specific steel. Spartan Armor Systems steel plates are encapsulated with a coating that is more elastic and contains fragments when they bounce off the plate.

Spartan Armor Systems also offers high quality reactive steel targets that are perfect for training and target practice. The targets are built to last and are perfect for those looking for a reliable and durable option for training and target practice.

Spartan Armor Systems prides itself on offering the best equipment at the best price, especially to its partners. If you are interested in having the best equipment in the industry with your logo, email or call customer service at 520-396-3335 today.
