APIS Stab Protection

The APIS stab protection range, the first application of our technology, addresses current problems of heavy, uncomfortable armour, designed to withstand 50% less force for female use due to current material and design issues

APIS Range

APIS takes its inspiration from hardened structures in the natural world that have been optimised for strength and flexibility. VIKELA have structured the APIS range around the honeycomb structure, offering lightweight material that distributes forces evenly and effectively away from the user.

The material used to construct our APIS range does not allow any blade penetration, tests its edge cases and ensures that armour for female use is of the same standard and provides equal protection as the male counterpart, as current armour only tests female armour to 50% of the impact force as male armour.

Current Protection


APIS will fundamentally change how safe employees feel when performing their jobs.
