Bullet-Resistant Vests

Duke Bullet-Resistant Vests are a great alternative to the traditional concealable vest which gives you front and back protection as well as providing good ventilation and reduces heat build-up. Minimizing weight and maximizing comfort and maneuverability, without compromising protection is our primary objective.

The ballistic material used for this product is approximately fifteen times stronger than steel. It is not only ultra-lightweight but extraordinarily tough, with superior properties, helping minimize blunt trauma impact from high-load strain-rate velocities.

Cleaning:  The ease of removing the ballistic panels allows for easy and proper cleaning of the garment and liner.

High resistance to chemicals, and UV light

Low dielectric constant makes it virtually transparent to radar

Light enough to float

Highly resistant to flex fatigue

Waterproof

Stab resistant for sharp instruments

Each armoured garment consists of independent panels and a liner. Once all the panels are incorporated into the garment the wearer has full front, back, and side protection, thus minimizing the threat of injury to vital organs. We don’t use the conventional ARAMID fibres as they are heavier than the UHMPWE – Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene which we are using to manufacture our Duke soft ballistic inner.

Specifications:

Our soft body armour panels conform to SABS – SANS1658:2007 standard and has been successfully tested by the SABS ballistic laboratory in Pretoria for an equivalent international NIJ Standard 01.01.04 Level 2 and 3A protection, depending on your requirement. Reports are available at your request.

Soft Ballistic Inserts

Our ballistic inserts are up to 40% lighter with better ballistic protection and mobility. This weight saving advantage will allow you to wear your jacket comfortably providing you with additional, life-saving, tactical gear. Each armoured garment consists of independent panels and a liner.

The ballistic material used for this product is approximately fifteen times stronger than steel. It is not only ultra-lightweight but extraordinarily tough, with superior properties, helping minimize blunt trauma impact from high-load strain-rate velocities.

The SABS and NIJ Certified level II and Level IIIA Ballistic protection we provide has been rigorously tested in the lab, on the shooting range as well as proving their worth in the field over many years. When you purchase and wear one of our vests, you can be certain that it was hand-made to an international standard that is used globally by all police, military and defence personnel.

Pepper Projectiles

We pay utmost attention to detail and effectiveness in ensuring the reliability and consistency of each pepper ball made.

Why choose Pepper Projectiles over a firearm?

It is compulsory to obtain a licence before you purchase a firearm. This lengthy and rigorous process includes: Successfully undergoing the required training at an accredited training institution to obtain a training proficiency certificate. The Firearms Control Act includes stringent checks as part of this process. The submission of compulsory application forms, the training proficiency certificate and supporting documents to the designated firearms officer (DFO).

Once your application is approved, you are required to install a firearm safe, which meets the standards set by the South African Bureau of Standards, within 14 days. The DFO will then carry out a physical inspection of your premises to ascertain that you have met the requirements for a safe. Besides the duration and costs involved in this process, there is a backlog in firearm license applications.

If you do shoot a perpetrator in an act of self-defence, there are various requirements that must be met before the act of self-defence is considered lawful in the eyes of the courts. This means that you could end up imprisoned merely for defending yourself or your property. Non-lethal defence is a highly effective, affordable alternative.


There are no licenses required – which means immediate protection. Duke Defence is one of the largest producers of pepper projectiles globally, producing the Duke Pepper projectiles locally. The Duke Pepperball is the most potent on the market, combining kinetic impact, psychological shock, and natural capsaicin powder to irritate and gain compliance. The powder infiltrates the sensory system of an assailant, incapacitating the assailant for at least 15 minutes.

The Duke Pepper Projectile is a .68 calibre round which includes a potent active compound, rendering it the most powerful pepper projectile on the market. The powder infiltrates the sensory system of an assailant, incapacitating the assailant for at least 15 minutes. To complement the pepper projectile system, Duke Defence distributes a comprehensive range of gas guns.

The pepper projectile is also an irritant to the skin, nose, and eyes. The physiological impact on an assailant includes coughing uncontrollably, an intense burning sensation in the eyes and on the skin, and, in some instances, vomiting.

The combination of these three – kinetic impact, psychological shock and sensory incapacitation – effectively immobilizes a suspect, allowing adequate time for the suspect to be apprehended.

Kinetic Impact

Kinetic impact refers to the impact of a projectile as a result of the force with which it is fired. Gas guns have a greater muzzle velocity.

Psychological Shock

The psychological shock of hearing shots fired, combined with the kinetic impact of the pepper balls, contributes to the effect of the pepper balls.

Sensory Incapacitation

By infiltrating the sensory system of an assailant, the capsaicin powder incapacitates an assailant for up to 20 minutes.

Grenades

Our grenades contain no harmful chemicals, no primers and no thermal reactions, so there is no fire or explosive hazard, which makes it intrinsically safe. The grenades do not fall under the international explosives acts, so they are totally legal to use in a self-defence situation. 

Pepper Grenade Kit

The new Duke Pepper Grenade has been proudly developed and patented in South Africa. Our intention from the start was to offer a non-lethal solution that conforms to international human rights standards*

Filled with our world-beating pepper powder, the units pack a serious sonic punch of approximately 120 – 128dB and a 5m pepper dispersion 360 degrees around the blast point. It also has significant hang-time of the pepper, so that it affects even the toughest targets.

The Duke Pepper Grenade has a detonation time of approximately 4,5 seconds, which offers the thrower enough time to lob
the grenade into the desired area, but not enough time for the targets to escape the pepper dispersion radius. 

The Pepper Grenades are drop- safe with the safety pin and military grade pressure spring preventing any accidental detonations. 

Sonic Grenade Kit

The Duke Sonic Grenade has a detonation time of approximately 4,5 seconds, which offers the thrower enough time to lob the grenade into the desired area, but not enough time for the targets to escape. The Sonic Grenades are drop-safe with the safety pin and military grade pressure spring preventing any accidental detonations. We have put the grenades through a rigorous testing process to ensure total safety for the carrier, thrower, as well as the intended target.

The kit comes standard with a fully re-usable core inside a pre-packed plastic shell. Just pull the pin, thump the depressible head and throw it in the direction of the intended target. Once the Grenade has been used, pick up the spent parts, wash off any debris and leave to dry. The core is now ready to be re-used.

Intended Tactical Use:

Room Penetration

The grenade does not burn any of the oxygen in a room, making it safer than traditional teargas grenades with primers and long burning content.

Vehicle Penetration

Sonic volume is loud enough to distract targets, but with no permanent hearing damage.

Urban Riot Control

The Pepper Grenade has a 4,5 seconds delay, leaving the target no time to escape or neutralize the grenade.

Correctional Facilities

mall enough burst for use in prisoner cells, with no permanent damage to eyes or ears, minimal cross contamination, no shrapnel, no fire risk.

Training

The cores can be re-used with or without active ingredients, making them ideal and very cost effective for training purposes.

Sensory Incapacitation

By infiltrating the sensory system of an assailant, the capsaicin powder incapacitates an assailant for up to 20 minutes.
